IMVU users love to capture the wonderful outfits, scenes and fun moments they enjoy in IMVU. The rich 3D world experience combined with our camera tools make it possible for them to keep the treasured memories alive through their photos.
As of now, the pictures our customers took or uploaded to their photo galleries were only available through our website. With the latest version of IMVU’s chat – 467.0, we now bring photo galleries into IMVU’s 3D experience as well. Download the latest version today and check out our new Photos mode! We are sure you are going to love this new and easy way to store, organize and share your wonderful photos.
The new and improved photos experience is also available to our community on the website on their profile pages. Simply go to www.imvu.com/photos to access the photos feature. The “See my albums” link on users’ avatar cards can also be used for quick access to all the albums.
The photos experience works quite the same on the website and in the 3D chat.
Click on the Photos feature mode and start organizing, uploading and sharing your pictures. All the pictures currently in your web galleries are available in corresponding albums and their sharing level is automatically set to being Private i.e. visible only to you.
As an existing IMVU user you can create and use an unlimited number of albums. Going forward, new accounts will have 10 albums to use while members of our exclusive VIP club will continue to enjoy an unlimited number of albums.
Create a new album(s), move your photos around or upload new ones. Any new photos you take using our camera tools will automatically be saved into your default album for you to sort later. Photos can be moved from one album to another by simple “drag and drop”.
To help organize and display your photos to suit your needs, you can customize titles and descriptions for your photos and albums, choose which photo becomes your album cover, and delete individual pictures or albums. Please note that the default album located in the first slot cannot be deleted.
Want to upload your own pictures to your IMVU albums? No problem – simply use the “Upload Photo” link to add any jpg, png or gif images that are no more 1024 x 1024 pixels and 3 MB in size.
Share your Creations
You can choose to share your photo albums with your IMVU friends or everyone in IMVU so they can view them.
Any shared pictures must be General Audience (GA) appropriate as per our policies.
The default album located in the first spot where all pictures taken using our camera tool are saved is always set to private i.e. allowed to be viewed only by you.
For IMVU users who have chosen to share any of their photo albums with others, their profile/avatar cards will show a “see my albums” link. You can click on this link to view any photos that the user has chosen to allow you to view.
Enjoy High-Resolution Photos
What is the best feature that we have added to your photos experience? You can now save and enjoy high-resolution photos. We have updated our camera tools and the new photos mode so that you can capture, save and upload high-resolution images in order to enjoy them in their full glory. Your older photos will still be at their original lower resolution; however, your new pictures will be at high resolution.
All photos shared with other IMVU users (including your friends) must be General Audience appropriate as per our policies.
We now make it easy for our community to report inappropriate photos – right from within the Photos feature experience. If you happen to view a picture that does not meet our GA guidelines, then you can report it for our review by clicking on the flag icon displayed on each shared photo. While viewing someone else’s album, you also have the option to report the entire album for review by our customer support team.
We are excited to add this easy way for our customers to view, organize and share their photographic expressions and hope you are too!
