06 Sep 9 Things To Do With Your Favorite Photos
But what REALLY sets them apart from everyone else’s spaces are your memories, as represented by the photos and other digital images you showcase within them.
So for today’s blog post, we want to summarize nine things that you can do with photos and images in Egowall.
(1) Add Photos and Images From Your Computer
Import up to 50 photos (.jpg or .png) from your computer or any external drive – including your smartphone – into each multimedia storage object / container.
There is no limit on the number of containers you can have.
This means that you can import as many photos as you like and organize them in whatever way you prefer.
Detailed instructions on how to do this are available.
(2) Display Photos and Images
After importing your pictures into containers, you can display them in any room of any living space in two different ways:
Wall Display (detailed instructions)
Custom Photo Frames
Custom frames are special photo objects onto which you can drag a photo or image. The following custom photo frames are currently available:
Single Frame (Desktop)
Single Frame (Wall; various colors)
3-Photo Multiframes (horizontal and vertical)
3-Photo Desktop Multiframes
4-Photo Multiframes (square)
5-Photo Multiframes (horizontal and vertical)
(3) Change the Frame
When initially placed on a wall, photos and images are assigned a default frame – Contemporary Black Metal.
At any time after that you can change the standard picture frame to any of the following color and material options (seen in the image at right):
Contemporary Brown Metal
Contemporary Black Metal
(4) Scale the Photos / Images and Frames
Much like scalable furniture objects, photos and images that are placed in standard frames can be resized. There are two types of scaling available:
The frame can be scaled horizontally, vertically or in both directions simultaneously.
The image – which by default has a white matte, can be resized so that it fills the frame.
(5) Rotate The Photo or Image
Again, in a manner similar to what can be done to furniture objects, placed photos and images can be rotated on a wall.
Of course, unlike furniture objects, pictures can only be rotated on a single axis.
(6) Move or Reposition The Photo or Image
Don’t like where you placed the picture? Change it.
Want to move it to another room or living space? Well, that takes just a bit more effort, as we describe in our next item.
(7) Remove Photos or Images From Display
If you want to change the room in which a picture is displayed, the first step is to return the photo or image back to the container where it was originally stored.
The process is identical to that of reboxing a piece of furniture.
Once the photo or image is again in the container, simply go to the new room and repeat the process explained in Step (2) above.
(8) Change Photo / Image Name Or Description
When initially imported into a container, pictures retain their original file name as the image name, and the description is completely blank.
Provide your site visitors with additional information about the photos and images you have on display – especially to explain why they are meaningful or significant – by changing their names and descriptions.
You can edit the name and description of any photo that you own – whether it is still stored in its container or has been placed in a room.
(9) Like the Photo / Image or Leave Comments
Part of the fun of looking at photos from your friends is to indicate approval (likes, etc.) and/or leave comments about them.
This includes pictures you own as well as those you come across while visitingspaces owned by your connections.
We’re sure that once you engage with the game you will find other things that you can do with your best pictures in Egowall.
