Muse Mosaic can be used in conjunction with our Photo Party Upload software to pull images from Instagram and Twitter into your watched folder and into your mosaic!
First, you'll need to sign up for a Photo Party Upload account*. If you are already an LAPP customer and have a PPU account, you can skip down to step (4). If you are new to PPU, start by registering by clicking HERE.
Next, if you haven't done so in the registration process, download our Helper software by clicking HERE.
Run the ".exe" file that downloads from the link in step (2) to install the Helper.
With your PPU account setup and the Helper installed, you'll now need to familiarize yourself enough with Photo Party Upload to set up an event, setup hashtag printing for your event, save the event, and download the event settings into the Helper. If you are already familiar with PPU, you may only need to review the information pertaining specifically to Hashtag Printing. Here are some important articles from our Photo Party Upload support page that you should review:
- Getting Started - Part 1: Overview of Photo Party Upload
(Note that, for Muse Mosaic, you will not need to use the Kiosk application in PPU)
- Getting Started - Part 2: Creating an Event
- Getting Started - Part 5: The Helper
- Hashtag Printing
For more advanced information on the Helper, check out Getting to the Helper Configure Window as well as any other solutions documents there on our support site that interest you.
Make sure that the correct folder is set as your watched folder in your Helper. This folder should be the Muse Mosaic folder where you want the hashtag-retrieved images to be saved. This should either be the current session's "watched" or "waiting" folders (or whichever custom folders are being used for that purpose in your system, if you've chosen not to use the default session folder tree).
Activate Hashtag Printing for your event and watch as images posted with your selected hashtag download, per your predetermined criteria, into the folder of your choice, and subsequently into your active mosaic!
