Getting set up on Fotoura is easy. The first step is to sign-up to Fotoura, after which you can add to your account with a personal profile or by adding your organisation. It's free to join.

If you're a photographer looking to promote your work, you can sign-up and add your profile as a photographer including links to your website. Following that you'll be able to upload portfolios and anything from exhibitions you're in to courses that you give.

Similarly, as a photography organisation, you can sign-up, create a profile for your organisation, and then add any number of events either held at your gallery or in any other venue you choose.

STEP 2: ADD A PROFILE

Once you are signed in to Fotoura you will have access to your Fotoura Account page. From your account, by way of your profile, you can add all the types activities and information you see on Fotoura to the website.

What do I need before I start?


Adding a profile is a simple and straightforward process — you are free to add as much or as little information as you like to your Fotoura profile. You can always return to it at any point to edit or update it.

Once you have set up your profile, you will be able to start adding content immediately. Your profile must be added first so that any content you add can be associated with it.

It will help to have a think about what you would like to publish on the site, and prepare the necessary information about any events or activities you want to add before you begin publishing content. If you find yourself missing any information or uncertain of any event details once you have already begun your listing, you can always save it as 'Private' and return to it later for completion.

Fotoura also requires that you add photos to every activity or piece of information you add (including your profile), so make sure you have a photo ready before you start. All of the photos used on Fotoura are square - either because they have been cropped square or because they sit inside a square frame. For more information see adding images to Fotoura.
