Photo conferencing using FotoWeb screens (Legacy)

Legacy note:

This feature was discontinued on July 1, 2021. Versions released after that date don't contain this feature.

What are screens?

Using a computer in your network you can access your FotoWeb server (it has to be the same server that your iPad is connected to) and create a "Screen" from the login page. Anyone can then use FotoWeb on their iPhone or Android phone or iPad to send pictures to that screen for review, whether on the internal Wi-Fi zone or on a data connection (assuming the FotoWeb can be accessed from the outside network.)

Creating a screen

  • First off, go to your FotoWeb site on the machine that hosts the physical display you want to show pictures on.
  • Click on the wrench icon in the top right of the screen and choose Create screen. Depending on how the site has been configured you may have to log in first to be allowed to create a screen.
  • Now name your screen. ("John's office monitor")

Sending pictures to the screen from your iPad


From the Grid view

Click on the Select button in the upper right corner and choose one or more files to display on the screen.
Now click on the Show on screen button in the top menu and choose the screen you want to send the selected pictures to.


When displaying a preview on your phone

When swiping through previews in your archive, you can quickly send a picture to a screen by swiping up on the screen. If you have not selected a screen, you will be given a list of available screens to share the picture on.

Clearing the contents of the FotoWeb screen

To completely clear the contents on the FotoWeb screen, shake your iPad, or choose the Select button and then Clear screen from the grid.
