Hello everybody!

Here is the promised tutorial on how to access the new Joaquin Rodriguez Family albums we have saved in the Permanent Storage.  I'm going to create a second tutorial with instructions on how to share your photos with this account.

I'm mainly going to focus on how to access from your phone, but you can also access from a web browser on the computer.

First of all, though, you have to have signed up for a free account with Forever.com.  If you have not done so, please do that now.  There's no need to purchase anything.  You can sign up for the free account at https://www.forever.com/ambassador/debrodriguez.

Once you've created a free account, you'll want to download the Forever app from your phone's app store.  Just search for Forever and look for the green and blue circle icon.

When you first open the app, you will be prompted for how you want to manage different upload settings, etc. on your phone.  These options enable you to automatically backup your phone photos to your Forever account and let you choose how future photos will be treated.  The choice is entirely up to you, and you can change options in the future. For right now, it's fine to select No for all of these questions, but a Yes won't hurt anything.

 

 

iPhone/iPad Instructions

I took the following screenshots on an iPad because I don't have an iPhone, but they should be similar, just possibly different dimensions.

Begin by opening the Forever app you downloaded previously and signing in.  When you first sign in, you'll see your Library view.  This shows all of your personal photos that have been uploaded.  If you haven't uploaded anything, it will be blank.  This is my personal account.

For the purpose of seeing the photos in the Joaquin Rodriguez Family account, you'll need to tap the Friends icon on the bottom right side of the screen.  This will show you the accounts that have sent you a Friend Request.  I sent a Friend Request to each of you on Christmas Day, but let me know if you didn't receive it and I'll send again.  If you haven't accepted the request, there will be a blue link under the name of the account that you can tap to accept.  (You will most likely only see the Joaquin Rodriguez Family in your Friends folder. )

Shared Albums

From here, you'll see all photos in albums on the Joaquin Rodriguez Family account.  I'm trying to organize them into understandable Albums, which are basically just folders.  

As I mentioned, I will send another tutorial on how to share your photos with the family account.  One thing at a time.

Android Instructions

The Android app looks a little bit different, but it's basically the same.

Begin by opening the Forever app you downloaded previously and signing in.  When you first sign in, you'll see your Library view.  This shows all of your personal photos that have been uploaded.  If you haven't uploaded anything, it will be blank.  This is my personal account.

Library View

For the purpose of seeing the photos in the Joaquin Rodriguez Family account, you'll need to tap the Friends icon on the bottom middle of the screen.  This will show you the accounts that have sent you a Friend Request.  I sent a Friend Request to each of you on Christmas Day, but let me know if you didn't receive it and I'll send again.  If you haven't accepted the request, there will be a blue link under the name of the account that you can tap to accept.  (You will most likely only see the Joaquin Rodriguez Family in your Friends folder. )

I am working on these and will add them asap.  I'll keep you posted.
