Follow these 3 simple steps:
Add a talk help:
Talk Name: The title or name of your talk as it appears on your own promotional material
Talk Subtitle: An optional subtitle to your talk name, possibly the name of the party/parties involved
Add to your profile: You should already have added your profile to the website. If you did not do this, please return to your Fotoura Account page and follow the directions to ‘Add a profile’
Venue: The venue for your talk will need to be added to the website, either by you or another user, before you can select it from this drop-down list. If it has not yet been added, you will need to visit the +ADD A VENUE page to do so in order to complete your talk listing.
Talk Start Date: Use the calendar to select the start date for your talk
Talk Start Time: Select the starting time for your talk from the dropdown menu
Talk End Date: Use the calendar to select the end date for your talk
Talk End Time: Select the ending time for your talk from the dropdown menu
This section is where you can highlight any unique and enticing features of your talk.
Add a photo. This is the main photo that will show up at the top of your talk listing, and is also the first thing users will see when your talk comes up in a search or is featured on the homepage of the website.
The image will ideally be an 800 x 800 pixel square, minimum 400 x 400 pixels. See our guide to adding photos to Fotoura for further information.
This section will not be relevant to you unless you have created an in-app download to accompany your talk. If you are interested in finding out more about this option, see in-app downloads.

Talk Description: This is your opportunity to really ‘sell’ your talk and give the public a detailed description of what topics will be covered, background information about the person or people involved, and any other information about the talk that might be of interest to potential attendees.
Please tick the boxes that are relevant to your talk. These will help users find your talk listing when they search according to various related criteria.
If you are unclear on whether a particular photo category applies to your talk or how to classify/’tag’ your talk (as a conference, lecture, etc.), please scroll down to the bottom of the page for a list of category definitions, or see below, retrospectively:
Seminar: An instructive presentation or talk on a certain subject, generally limited to a single speaker (though sometimes there will be more than one), speaking to a group larger than that on a workshop. Compared to a course, seminars are typically shorter in duration and less discussion-oriented, characterised by predominantly, though not exclusively, one-sided instruction. Seminars will be more theory-based than courses, with little to no practical element.
Conference: An event organised around a particular subject – generally a topic within a larger area of interest, such as 19th century impressionism in photography, though the focus may be broader – and consisting of a range of topical lectures and presentations from different experts in the field to an audience whose size may vary. Talks within a conference generally involve facilitators.
Symposium: Often used interchangeably with the term ‘conference’, typically designated as a type of strictly academic conference.
Lecture: A speech, sometimes instructive, on a particular topic delivered to a class or an audience. Lectures are typically shorter than seminars and are exclusively one-sided (without a discussion element).
Website Publish Status:
Archive: Choose this option if your event is not active currently, but you want it to appear on the website (e.g. you run a course regularly, but it does not have any scheduled dates currently; or you held an exhibition and wish to leave the details and images up on the site for visitors’ reference)
Live: Choose this option if you are satisfied with the details you have filled in about your event; it will be published to the website once you hit ‘save’.
Private: Choose this option if you wish to return to the event listing at a later point before completing it; it will not be published on the website until you change this setting.
