The Live Feed feature on your Gallery pages allows you to display the pictures taken at your event on the big screen for guests to enjoy and is a great way to increase engagement with the booth!

We'll automatically resize and arrange images based on the size of your screen or display. Regardless of whether the screen is in a vertical or horizontal position, widescreen or otherwise—Live Feed gets rid of all the guesswork. When you're ready to get started, enter the fullscreen mode to hide your URL bar for the slideshow.

Accessing & Sharing Live Feed

You can access a Live Feed link from your gallery settings as well as from the gallery page itself when you are signed in.

Link sharing

The Live Feed panel in your gallery settings includes a direct link to the event’s Live Feed. Simply click the copy button to copy your feed's unique URL, and send it to your colleague or client for use during the event.

This link will preserve your advertisements if applicable but will not maintain custom feed layouts, transitions, and other settings.

Sharing settings

If you need to maintain specific Live Feed settings outside of your advertisements, follow these steps:

  1. Start by playing the feed for the gallery.

  2. Use the settings icon in the top right corner to adjust the Live Feed settings as necessary. You will notice the URL is updated with each change.

  3. Once you are happy with the settings, copy the entire URL (it may be long depending on your customizations!) and share as needed.

Projecting Live Feed

The Live Feed can be run from any browser that supports JavaScript, so there is a lot of flexibility to display your pictures. We do not recommend projecting the feed from a mobile device, as they often won't support the full screen mode.

We recommend running Live Feed from a laptop and using a casting service like Airplay or Chromecast whenever possible.

Your Live Feed can also be run directly from a smart TV. Smart TVs don’t have the same computing power that laptops have, and certain Smart TVs won't be compatible with Live Feed so there are some limitations.
