Explaining IMVU Photo Stream

There’s a new feature in IMVU called Photo Stream. This new future is at this moment only available for VIP’s and will be within a few weeks launched to the entire community.

Photo Stream allows IMVU members to capture and share their favorite IMVU moments with others! You can share and showcase your own photos and explore the latest fashion trends, décor styles and expressions of creativity by others. This is a way to make new friends who share your style and interests! IMVU also gives you as a bonus, 250 promotional credits for the first photo you share and 250 additional ones for the first “like” you get for that photo.

Use the camera tool to take your photos within your screen and then check the “[v] Share to my stream” option from the Save Photo dialog box. But be careful a couple people have accidentally shared pictures they didn’t mean to. Other people will see these photos in the recommended section of the stream, and could send you a friend invite or visit your IMVU home pages. They can also block and / or report you for inappropriate content if your pictures aren’t appropriate for everyone. So especially in the beginning be careful about any adult pictures here.

There’s a profit which are only for VIP Exclusive members. If you share a photo and someone purchases one or more products showcased in that photo, you earn 5% of the total purchase price for that order. The opportunity to earn these promotional credits is endless and I think this will be popular for developers to show off things.

  1. i like this addition though still not sure how it works. i was always surprised they didn’t do this before, (let you buy the outfits in a photo) it helps them make money and would be so useful. also, they still slow to integrate more facebook style features like Pulse. but this is definitely a good step.

    Lol…guess you recieved a lot of extra credits today…clicked at “♥” at all your photo’s :)). I noticed when you have some AP things in your room that you can’t share your picture anymore with photo share at this moment but you have to be carefull with anything you share…xxx

    • I don’t know, I haven’t really used the photo stream and don’t take pictures with imvu camera. I probably should sometimes but I do a lot and like having them organized on my computer. Maybe someone else can answer this.

      Dear Dawn…I believe you will see a message “Scenes containing AP products cannot be shared at Photo Stream”. I believe IMVU blocked the AP things in Photo Stream and doesn’t want anything like that will be shared. Maybe because of nasty pictures people made and shared this! Some people can be really strange with sharing things…lol.

    • Photostream is fine but limits you to GA and can be a pain. The best thing I just found recently is GYAZO at Gyazo.com Just download it and doubleclick on the icon while your imvu window is open and then drag the cross hairs over the area you want to capture, then just paste it into the chat or into a message. Its insanely easy and an Awesome new tool!
