Select Bind on the application. You will be prompted to name your device and your nickname.

Step 5. Upload your photos

To upload photos, navigate back to the main home screen on the application and select “Gallery.” Here you will be brought to the photos on your smartphone. Select the photos you want to upload to your device and select finish in the top right hand corner.

Troubleshooting: Aluratek frame not connecting to WiFi

If your Aluratek frame is not connecting to WiFi, the solution we always recommend is re-starting your wireless router to “reset” the setup and give the frame a fresh opportunity to connect. If this doesn’t work, or you are still experiencing issues, feel free to contact our customer service team by calling us at 1-866-580-1978 Mon - Fri / 8AM - 5PM PST, or visit our Support page to fill out a Request form.

Troubleshooting: Aluratek frame not receiving pictures

If your Aluratek frame is not receiving pictures, it may be because the WiFi connection is not firmly established. Or, you may be receiving a “File Not Found” decode error. In the case of the latter, this is likely caused by compression and/or image sizing issues. Reducing the sizes of the images will help them meet transfer requirements. To reduce file size, follow the steps listed in this Support article.
