Share or download your Albums as zip files

The album zip files are available to all subscribers and can be created for all albums whose total size does not exceed 1GB.

The photos within a zipped album can either be downloaded in the original from as they were uploaded, or you can restrict the maximum resolution they will be zipped in. All photos will be packed without watermarks regardless of your current watermark settings, since this is meant to be primarily a back-up and sharing solution for you.

To serve this purpose, a zip file can be private or published. A private one can be accessed only via the e-mail we send you when your file has been prepared, or using the Download menu. A published zip file is shown in the Download menu to all of your visitors as well. When publishing a zip file, be sure to remember that the files are not watermarked, .

A zip file can be created by opening an album, and clicking Download >> Create Zip File. Afterwards, you can specify the resolution, the privacy mode of the zip file, and start the file generation.

We will notify you by e-mail when your file has been prepared, since the creation of large zip files naturally takes some time. A created zip file exists for 14 days, and is afterwards automatically removed. If you prefer to delete the zip file before the 14 day period has elapsed, you can do so from the Download menu as well - as long as the file exists, the menu will contain a link to delete the file. You can of course have the file re-created at any time.

When a zip file has been created for an album, and you decide to create a zip file of another of your albums, you can do so by simply navigating to it, clicking the Download button, and afterwards clicking the entry to recreate the zip file for the current album. You will once again be notified when the file is ready.

A zip file is not automatically updated : if you change the contents of your album, the change will not be reflected in the zip file, unless you recreate the file using the Download menu.
