- It is so simple to get started...
Do I have to share my Tripod with others?
No of course not. Until you sign up for an account your projects, tripods and images are only on your phone. We take security very seriously so you can rest assured that once you do sign up for an account we have built a strong security component into the application. This means that unless you specifically select to share your tripod or your images they remain private for only you to see.
Can I add Photos I have taken outside the Project Tripod application?
Yes you can. When you select to add photos to a tripod, simply select to load from your library.
How do I share my Tripods with others?
If you have a Project Tripod for Business Account, the Account Admin can add users that can all see and share access to Projects and Tripods.
Do I have to sign in to use Project Tripod?
No, you can open the application, set up projects, set up tripods and take photos to your hearts content. If you decide you would like to upgrade to get image backup, and sync across your devices you will need an account. Once you have that we will pull all of your existing project content across into your account.
How do I best align my photographs?
There are a few tips we can provide on photo alignment, including using the transparent guides in the app itself. See the image alignment tips section below.
Can I change the first image in the collection that alignment is tied to?
No, the first image you use to create the Tripod will always be the first image and will be used for all future alignment processing. However, you can always create a new tripod from the same location if you like.
Why does the app try to align every photo I take?
Our alignment process runs over all of the images to ensure they are fully aligned and then you can decide if you try again or keep it. If you keep it, the new aligned image is then added to the end of the collection of existing images in the tripod. You also have the option of keeping the un aligned raw image, or just taking another photo.
How do I disable location services?
Select the settings option by clicking Settings in the Menu to enter the settings page. In this page you can toggle the location servcies on and off.

Is there a limit to many devices can I install the application on?
This is a limitation of the marketplaces and specific to each platform. Licensing for Windows Phone apps is for use on a single account but in most cases means you can insatll the app on up to 5 devices. On iPhone you are limited to 3.
Wasn't this only for Windows Phone Users?
No way - we want everyone to be able to use Project Tripod. However, our initial launch was focused on the Windows Platform for a few reasons - 1.

That version still exists and you can download it today.

No. We are always working on improving our alignment software and think its pretty damned good already, but there will be images that dont align. Although through the app we will do our best to guide you, and then we will also run our image alignment processing over the top of the images again there will be some images that just wont align. This could be because of the shadows, hues, sunlight or obstructions to the image. See our tips on getting the best alignment possible.
