A guide on how to download your Meet and Greet pictures
If you are reading this post is because one way or another I took at least one picture of you during a live event, and you want to download those files. Given the fact the download process in my website is slightly different than others you might have seen on the web, I felt it would be appropriate to write a short guide to make sure you get to the right place with minimal effort. Before jumping into the step-by step instructions, these are some useful tips:
- Please allow a minimum of 72 hours from the date of the show for your photo to be uploaded. In certain occasions I have several events lined-up back to back and it could take me longer to upload them. If that’s the case you will be notified at the event.
- In order for you to access the photo gallery with your picture(s), you will need a password. All Meet and Greet galleries are password protected to ensure only those who attended a particular event are able to retrieve the files. If you lost you password and/or the card you were given with it, you can always contact me using the form at the right-most bottom corner of this page or by going here.
- Rest assured your pictures will be properly uploaded within a reasonable time frame, and they won’t be ever deleted. In case you lose the picture you can always come back here and download it again, and if that happens and you forgot your original password, you can always reach out to me.
- Why such a complicated process you might wonder… Well, reality is the only way for me to ensure you can download the high resolution version of your pictures is using this system. If I wouldn’t care I would simply allow people to download the image they see when the lightbox pops up, but truth is that one is a very reduced quality copy of the original, simply to ensure the website is fast on every device, and going that route you would never get the hight quality one.
Now, let’s jump into the fun part:
- The first step is to head over the Photography page and look for the Meet and Greet section. Click here to open that page in a new tab, so you can alternate back and forth while following the instructions.
- Once you opened that page, locate the the gallery pertaining to the event you were part of.
- After hovering your mouse over picture gallery of your choice and clicking on it, you will be taken to a new page where you have to enter your password.
- After entering the password you will gain access to the picture gallery. Carefully look for the picture(s) you want to download and click on the first one.
- The picture(s) will open up in a light-box taking all your browser area, and to the leftmost bottom part you will see a shopping cart icon. Clicking on it will unfold a panel to the right of the picture, showing options to add the downloads to your cart. Next to each size option there are a couple of tiny up and down arrows to select the number of copies you want to download. IMPORTANT! Needn’t to worry about any cost, this is completely free for you, yet the process is the same as if you were buying a digital download. I would strongly suggest you to select the high resolution file, as is the best way to preserve your timeless memories, but depending on how good your Internet connection and/or bandwidth are, you might want to select a different resolution option.
- In case you want to download more than one picture the process remains the same. You can either scroll through them with the light-box opened, or you can close it and find the next image, click on it to maximize and then add it to the cart.
- Once you have added all the ones you intent to retrieve, the process is very straightforward. Simply click on the checkout button and follow the steps, and you will be taken to a downloads page when there will be a link for you to click on and start the download process. You will also receive an email with the confirmation of your order and the link to visit the same download page at your earliest convenience.
I sincerely hope the points above help you to understand the process. Enjoy your images!
