UPDATE AS OF AUGUST 16th

After a couple weeks of Sneak Peek to our elite VIPs, we are excited to launch the new Photo Stream feature to everyone effective today. Please read below the details about the feature and how to use it to share and explore your photos.

........................................................................................................................
Today, we are excited to launch a brand-new way to share and showcase your creativity on IMVU – through photos.

Welcome to the Photo Stream – available as a Sneak Peek for our elite VIPs!

The feature has been in testing and development for a couple of months and many of our valued community members have helped us make this feature into what it is today. Thank you to those helped us test!

WHAT IS PHOTO STREAM?

Photo Stream allows our community members to capture and share their favorite IMVU moments with others! You can share and showcase your own photos and explore the latest fashion trends, décor styles and expressions of creativity by others. This is a great way to make new friends who share your style and interests! As a bonus, you get 250 promotional credits for the first photo you share and 250 additional ones for the first “like” you get for that photo.

Share your photos with your IMVU friends and see the ones they have shared! Plus, we will be selecting and highlighting the best ones for the entire community to enjoy as our recommendations.

Photo Stream allows you to view products captured in the scene and buy the ones you fancy right from the stream. If you are part of our exclusive VIP club, then you have an opportunity to earn 5% of the total purchase price for any purchases made by others from the stream. All credit awards are in the form of IMVU promotional credits.

How does Photo Stream work?

For our VIPs (and all previous beta users who have been helping us test the feature), Photo Stream is now available as a new tab on the navigation menu on their account pages. As a result, we have modified the Community menu as well.



You can also explore the stream from your account pages from the "Recent Photo Stream Activity" section. You will see two of our recommended photos on the page and the “view more” link will let you explore more photos in the stream!



Now you can explore photos, like or comment on the photos and connect with others.

In your Photo Stream, you will see three sections – Recommended, Friends and My Activity

--Recommended section will have IMVU selected photos from all the ones shared by our users. This is the section that will be shown to community members who are new to IMVU.

--Friends section will showcase any photos shared to the stream by your IMVU friends.

--My Activity section will have all the photos that you have shared to the stream.

How to share photos to the Photo Stream?

To access the photo sharing feature, you will need to make sure you are using IMVU 3D Chat version 475.0 or up. Download it here today!

From within the 3D client, you can share your photos from within the camera tools. Remember, you can only do so if you are a VIP and therefore enjoying a sneak peek of the Photo Stream or have been part of the beta tester group.

Use the camera tool to take your photos and then check the “Share to my stream” option from the Save Photo dialog box. Of course, the “Save” option will still save your photos to your IMVU photo album as always.



ALL photos shared to the Photo Stream must be General Audience (GA) appropriate!

Photos you share from the 3D client will be seen under the “My Activity” tab in the Photo Stream and to your friends under their “Friends” activity tab. Your friends can “Like” or comment on these photos. Please note that you can only share photos to the stream from the camera tool when you snap a new photo. Photos already saved in your IMVU albums or uploaded images cannot be shared.

Earn credits as you enjoy the Photo Stream! You will earn 250 credits for the first photo you share to the stream and 250 more when you receive your first “like” for that photo. This is just our way of saying thank you!

How to buy IMVU products right from the stream!

We think the most exciting aspect of the new Photo Stream is the ability for our users to purchase virtual products they see and like in the shared photos – right from the stream!

As you “View” photos, the photo will open up in a larger window and you will see a list of products worn by the avatars in the photo as well as the room products captured in the scene. Of course no AP rated or hidden products will be shown. Then simply try and buy the product(s) you want!





VIP exclusive:

If you share a photo and someone purchases one or more products showcased in that photo, then you earn 5% of the total purchase price for that order. The opportunity to earn these promotional credits is endless!

How to make friends?

As you explore photos in the recommended section of the stream, you can make some new friends. Explore the profiles of the community members whose photos interest you and add them as your friend from their Photo Stream page.

You can also visit their IMVU home pages, block them and/or report them for inappropriate content from the available menu options.

How do safety features work?

As with all our other features, we are empowering our community to easily flag and report any photos and/or comments that do not meet our policies.

You can delete your own posts or any comments from your posts. You can also flag a post or block a user from their post. Simply click on the “gear” button to see the menu options.
