Q: What does “in Beta Test” mean?
A: It means we are still working out the kinks of our service and the look and feel is not yet ideal. And, until we are fully functional our site may have slower performance.
Q: What file specifications are required?
A: All of your images must be in JPG, JPEG, or PNG format. We do not yet support TIFF/TIF. The smallest dimension of the image must be at least 3000 pixels. Save at the highest resolution possible. This results in a total file size of approximately 8 MB to 50 MB. If possible, save in sRGB color space. No image file can exceed 70 MB.
If your photographs are too low resolution to support zooming, please have them re-photographed or scanned professionally. In Albuquerque, NM we recommend Pat Carr Imaging phone: 505-880-8124. In Santa Fe, NM we recommend High Desert Arts phone: 505-982-9875.

Q: I want to play your main playlist on my new HD TV, especially during dinner parties, but after about 1 hour I get a bouncing Roku logo.

Alternatively, press the moon icon on your Roku remote and set “Sleep timer” to OFF.
