"I have no reservations in giving PhotoStream.Live a 5-star review!

PhotoStream.Live not only provided my social media loving friends and family a reason to tweet, #hashtag and insta-pose all day long but it also provided me and my wife so many additional memories from the viewpoint of our very important guests!

It was so easy to use, that even my technophobic Dad managed to send in over 30 photos on the day via SMS! If you're reading this, do not hesitate in creating your own PhotoStream.Live memories, you won't regret it! "

"PhotoStream is a fantastic service that allowed us to see photos of people that couldn’t physically make it to our Easter Services because of Covid-19. Support was easy to talk to and answered every question we had. Our event was taken to the next level with PhotoStream. Everything ran perfectly and as expected. "

Guests of all ages can easily share photos & videos with:
Insta

SMS/MMS

Unlike other services your guests don't need to download any app to share photos and videos. This makes it fast and easy to share to the live stream.

Stream Memory Photos

With PhotoStream.Live you don't need a clunky slideshow or PowerPoint of memory photos.

Every live stream includes the ability to upload memory photos before your event. Memory photos will rotate through your stream between live images for the duration of your stream.

Why use Photo Stream Live ?


Manual or AI Moderation

Optionally choose manual moderation or AI moderation. Manual moderation to check each post before it appears on your live stream. AI moderation combines Google AI and Amazon AI to check every shared image and video. If anything unsuitable is detected it will be filtered out for manual checking.

Your guests will have fun!

Guests will have a ton of fun taking selfies and seeing their photos come up live on your photo stream. PhotoStream.Live is a great way to keep your audience engaged at your event.

Show all your memory photos

Upload all your special memory photos before the event. During the live stream these photos will cycle through with the live images.

No App Required

Your guests won't need to download any app to share photos. Using Instagram, Twitter, Email or SMS/MMS1, sharing to the live stream is fast and easy for everyone.

Keep all the shared photos

After the event you get a download of all the photos shared by guests during the event. Users can also continue to send in photos for 24 hours after the live stream ends to ensure you capture all your event memories.

Private Sharing

Other services require users to share via public posts to social media which reduces the number of images guests are comfortable sharing. PhotoStream.Live provides private sharing options via email and SMS/MMS1 which leads to more sharing by guests.

Tune in from anywhere

Have guests who can’t make your special day? Just share the live stream link with them and they can watch all the photos being shared in real time.

Capture special moments from different angles

With all your friends and family taking photos on their smartphones, you will get lots of cool angles of all the special moments.

FAQs


I've created a live stream when will I receive my MMS number?
Your SMS number will be assigned as soon as you create your event live stream. You can find this in your confirmation email and by logging into your account. Note this SMS number will only be active for receiving posts from your live stream start time.
What are my live stream posting instructions?
When you create your live stream you can choose the channels to receive posts (Instagram, Twitter, Email, SMS). After you create your live stream you will have access to your exact posting instructions, typically this will look like:

1. Make a public post to Instagram or Twitter with #yourhashtag
2. Email photos and videos to yourhashtag@photostream.live
3. SMS/MMS photos and videos to a number we assign for events in AU/US/CA

It can be a good idea to share these instructions with your event participants ahead of time. A lot of live events who use our product will print out instruction cards with these details and leave them on tables for guests to easily access.

But this is definitely not required, these instructions will also rotate across the bottom of your live stream page, so event participants will also be able to easily see them during your entire live stream and know where to send their posts to.
Do you provide a projector or screen to display the live stream?
We don't provide any physical equipment or hardware, you will need to display the live stream on your own device. You don't need much though, just an internet connected device such as a laptop or tablet which can be used to display the live stream on any projector or bigger screen. As the live stream is just a unique page on our website that we create for your event, just open it in any browser (we reccommend Google Chrome) and display it on any screen, it's that easy!
Do my event guests or I need to download an app?
There is no app to download! Just use our website to set-up and display your live stream. PhotoStream.Live is designed to make it super easy to post photos and videos without downloading an app. Your event participants can easily share photos and videos via a hashtag on Twitter and Instagram or via email or SMS.
What countries does PhotoStream.Live work in?
You can create a live stream to run in any country! Please note that MMS numbers are only available for events in Australia, Canada and United States. Every country has access to email and hashtag monitoring on Instagram and Twitter for receiving posts.
How will guests know where to send photos to?
After you sign-up and create a live stream for your event you will have access to your live stream posting instructions. It can a good idea to share these ahead of your event with guests. During your live stream, these instructions will also rotate across the bottom of the live stream page. These instructions will include your hashtag, email address and SMS/MMS number to send posts to.
Will I get access to all the photos and videos shared to the live stream?
Yes, as soon as your live stream finishes you can access and share a gallery of all posts. You will also be able to download a ZIP file containing all shared posts.
Can videos be sent into the live stream?
Yes! Short videos and animated GIFs can be sent to your event live stream. Try out our free demo to try it out for yourself.
What types of posts can be sent in to the live stream?
Photos, videos and animated GIFs can be posted to your event live stream. Each posting channel has restrictions and limitations for exactly what can be posted which is outlined here: detailed limitations of each channel.
How quickly will the photos appear on the live stream?
The short answer is typically within a few minutes and most of the time within a minute or two. But this depends on many factors, including your internet connectivity used to display the live stream, processing time of our service providers and a number of other factors. If you are running AI moderation then this will add some delay to new posts appearing on the live stream. As live posts arrive to the live stream they are queued and pushed to your live stream every 3 seconds, this is to ensure a flood of live images arriving at the same time doesn't crowd the screen.

Note that some channels have limitations on posting, see detailed information about limitations for each channel.
Do you control explicit content being posted to the stream?
You have two options to control content posted to the live stream, AI moderation and manual moderation. If you are using AI moderation, each post is checked for explicit content through Amazon's AI service and Google's AI service. Any posts that are potentially not appropriate will be put into a manual moderation queue, to be approved before they appear on your live stream. Please note that this is not a 100% reliable method. AI moderation will also filter some legitimate posts as well (false positives) that will need to be manually moderated.

The other option is to run manual moderation, where you or someone else on your account will need to manually approve each post before it appears on the live stream. If you need to be absolutely certain about which posts make it to the live stream please select this option.
Do you provide tech support on the day of my event?
Unfortunately we can't guaruntee live support during your event. We are sure you won't need any help, our product is designed to be very easy to use! Just create a live stream and use the link in your account to display the live photo stream. That's it! Everything else will work automatically, guests will see instructions on how to post rotating at the bottom of your live stream.

We are of course available to answer any questions you may have before your event, just reach out to us at contact@photostream.live.
What happens when the participant limit of my package is reached during my event?
Participant limits apply to each individual channel for your live stream. So for example, If your package has 50 participants, this means you can have up to 50 unique participants from Instagram, 50 unique participants from Twitter, 50 unique participants from MMS/SMS and 50 unique participants from email. After the limit is reached for a channel, any new participants will not be able to post photos for that particular channel. The participants who posted before reaching the limit can continue to send in posts.

Participant limits can't be changed during your event so please select the appropriate option when creating your event.
