It’s a one-time fee. Kind of hard to believe isn’t it? Not only that, but updates are free for life!
Yes, it is on sale for you as well, you are just seeing the price in your LOCAL currency and it is not a direct conversion. Apple sets the pricing at various tiers and sets one conversion rate per year that does not fluctuate daily. Rest assured that you are getting the same percentage of discount, it will just be in your local currency.
No, the app itself will only run from an iPad or android tablet. You can connect your tablet to a TV, computer monitor or projector if you wish to show larger, see our connection tips here.
If you don’t have an iPad or Android tablet, please see our Photoshop wall display guide templates here that achieve the same end result.
Yes, the background packs are each $5 off during the sale. HOWEVER, you will not see the sale price listed because the buttons that show the price are static and can’t be changed. You will click purchase at the regular price few times and then the very last time it confirms that you want to purchase it will ask if you really want to download it at the (sale) price. It’s quite confusing which is why I only do this once a year!
iOS users can actually purchase the app prior to getting an iPad. You must install iTunes on your computer and setup an Apple ID/account and then you will be able to purchase the app via your computer. Then, when you get your iPad you will be able to install it on the iPad. Just make sure you sign into that same Apple ID on your iPad that you orginally purchased the app with!
For Android tablet users unfortunately Google Play will not let you purchase apps without a device as they require a compatibility check with your actual device prior to purchase.
We recommend using Dropbox. Dropbox is a free program that allows you to save images into the cloud where the app can import them easily. Once installed, it acts just like any other folder on your computer so you can export a client gallery right from Lightroom into Dropbox. With Dropbox as the go-between and using our recommended workflow for Shoot & Sell and ProofShare you don’t even need to have internet access once you do the initial import from Dropbox into ProofShare.
There is not an easy answer to this question because everyone’s iPad setup is slightly different. So your iPad may have more memory available to it because it has a faster processor or fewer apps running in the background than another person’s setup. For this reason, we recommend images be sized to 72dpi and around 1000 pixels on the short side for bug free performance. (You can use Lightroom export preset in our free resources section to export your images at the recommended size!)
HOWEVER, if you are using Shoot & Sell with ProofShare with our recommended workflow you do NOT need to resize your images. You can import high resolution images into ProofShare which will automatically downsize them for you. After your client chooses their favorite images in ProofShare, you can choose to save JUST those favorites to your iPad (or Dropbox if you have WiFi) and those images will be at a size that works perfectly for Shoot & Sell.
Of course! We have a highly flexible scaling tool that will let you import and use just about ANY room background image.. and it accepts centimeters and meters as well as inches and feet, so it works great for international users as well. All you need to know is the measurement of any one item in the background image, or you can use a piece of paper attached to the wall for an instant size reference!
Shoot & Sell iOS does include a template creator! However, Shoot & Sell is not template dependent. Meaning you can create any combination of single images on the fly, frame any image or change image sizes without needing to change templates first.
Yes, absolutely! iPad 2&3 supports HDMI out via the 30 pin Digital AV Adapter and newer iPads via the Lightening Digital AV Adapter. Both are available online or in your local Apple store. We have more tips on connecting your iPad to a larger screen here: http://www.shootandsellapp.com/connecting
To display Shoot & Sell on your Apple TV, simply enable mirroring by following these instructions. Minimum requirements are also listed on that page.
The iPad app comes standard with all the backgrounds in Set I. It has the rest of the backgrounds offered as optional in-app purchases. If you already own other room sets that you would like to use in the app, simply make any room changes you wish to make in Photoshop (colors, furniture etc) and place an 11×14 single canvas on the wall and change it’s opacity to 20%. It should look something like this:
Save these background images either to Flickr, Dropbox, or just email them to yourself and save to your iPad’s Library from your email. OR, save them to a folder that syncs to your iPad via iTunes.
You can now import these into Shoot & Sell by touching and holding the wall to bring up the “edit wall” menu and choosing “change background image” and then picking from the options depending on where you stored them.
In the next step, the app will ask you to measure a known element in the room with the ruler – click drag the ends of the ruler until it just covers the width of the 11×14 canvas and type in 14 and click on “in” for inches and then click “accept”. You can now use this new background inside the app.
To avoid having to recalibrate the next time you want to use this image, you can save the background as a project via the organize menu at the right of the the top toolbar.
The only difference between doing this vs purchasing the ones that are available inside the app is that you will not be able to change wall and furniture colors like you can for the ones purchased inside the app. If there were a way to offer these free to my past customers, or even a credit or discount I would – but apple doesn’t provide for any sort of discount mechanism via the iTunes store. Thank you for your understanding!
13 of them are available at our partner print lab H&H and are named the same as the corresponding H&H canvas cluster. We highly recommend H&H (they also give you a hanging guide free with each cluster!), but if you are already a customer of ProDPI, Bay, Simply Color Lab or Mpix Pro you will also recognize several of the clusters as being the same as the ones offered by these other pro labs.
Essentially the iTunes store is localized in every country. That means that you will always see a price in your LOCAL currency for an app, you will never see that app price in USD because iTunes detects that you are outside the US. Your local price does not fluctuate based on daily currency conversions, but is rather set by Apple about once a year and we hear that it’s not the most favorable rate. Unfortunately, app developers have zero control over this, it is completely dictated by Apple. If we are running a sale, rest assured that even though the sale price for you in your local currency is different than the sale price in USD, the app is still discounted for you by the same percentage.
Updates are free, so it’s a great idea to make sure you have the latest version installed with all the newest features and bug fixes. iOS users simply open your app store app and click on the “purchased” tab and find Shoot & Sell in the list. If it says “open” you have the latest update. If it says “update” please click on it to update. You can also visit www.getshootandsell.com from your iPad to quickly see if it says update or open.
Keep in mind that if you have “auto-update apps” turned on in your iPad settings you will ALWAYS have the latest version.
