It's not always clear which photos have been uploaded yet. But it is important to understand how to determine this before deleting anything from your device's storage.
General rule of thumb: If you're not 100% certain that a photo or video has been uploaded, don't delete it from your camera roll.
There are two ways to determine if a photo has been uploaded from the Camera Roll:
- Login to your account from a desktop web browser at Picturelife.com - can you find the photos? If the answer is YES, they've been uploaded.
- Open Picturelife iOS Upload Status > Camera Roll > Check for symbols on the photos - an explanation of the symbols are below:
First, make sure you're logged in to your Picturelife account:
Second, from the Upload Status menu, enable Allow Uploads:
The Allow Uploads button will be blue when enabled.
Third, open Camera Roll to view photo & video Backup Status:
Check the symbols on each thumbnail to determine the photo or video's current upload status - generally, if there is a symbol in the bottom right corner, the photo has NOT yet been uploaded.
- An arrow indicates the photo has NOT been uploaded but is queued for upload.
- A slashed circle indicates that either you chose to ignore the photo (not upload it) or that you uploaded and then deleted the photo from your Picturelife library.
- A ... means the photo has been uploaded and is being processed. It will be visible on the web shortly.
- No symbol means the picture or video has been uploaded to your Picturelife library.
