Photo Sharing for VALE Users’ Conference

Do you want to take photographs at the VALE Conference and add them to the conference photo-sharing account? Following are some instructions for how to do that:

Sending a photo to the valeconferences Flickr account from a camera phone and/or email account?

Instructions are modified from the original Flickr FAQ

You can upload photos to the valeconferences free Flickr account from your camera using the unique email upload address

When you upload photos via email, the subject line is used as the title of your photo, and the body of the email is used as the description.

Adding tags to photos I upload via email or my phone?

Just type “tags:” in the subject line or body of the email followed by the list of tags you want added to the photo(s). (The rest of the subject line in is converted to the photo’s title and the body of the email becomes the photo’s description.)

Here’s an example of adding tags in action.


John Doe, the keynote speaker   tags: Keynote “John Doe” 2008


Johe Doe speaking on the topic of bah bah bah.

Or you could send them in the body:


John Doe, the keynote speaker


Johe Doe speaking on the topic of bah bah bah. tags: Keynote “John Doe” 2008

(If you include tags in the email body, they must be at the beginning of a new line.)

Note: Tags sent via email are used in addition to the default tag “VALE Users’ Conference”.

How many photos can I upload by email?

There’s no set limit, but this feature was designed to upload single images from camera phones. You can send multiple photos through your regular email client, but you may have problems uploading some of them.

You may encounter problems if you email large numbers of photos at one time or send very high-resolution or large-size images. You may also have problems due to weird message formatting caused by different mail programs or mail server/transit problems outside of our control.

Since these issues vary, we suggest emailing fewer images at a time. You may have to experiment to find out what works best for you.

If you upload photos but they don’t’ appear right away, give it some time. If your mail server doesn’t connect with ours on the first attempt, it may take awhile before it tries again.

These modified instructions provided by Ray Schwartz, WPUNJ.
