Frequently Asked Questions
We put a lot of effort into making Pomoto as self explanatory as possible. Nevertheless, questions will arise. We'll continue filling in this FAQ as we receive more questions and feedback.
What are the system requirements to run Pomoto?

Pomoto is built specifically for OS X. It is a universal binary and will run equally well on PowerPC and Intel based Macs.

  • Mac OS X version 10.3.9 and above
  • iPhoto 2 and above
Do I need a .Mac account to use Pomoto?

Nope. Pomoto is essentially an independent alternative to .Mac Web Galleries, and the only requirements are those lists above. Well... and an internet connection.

How many photos can I upload?

As many as you want! For more information, see our Terms of Service.

What is a private album?

A private album is an album that contains no references or links to your gallery. Therefore, to reach it, you need to know the direct URL. You can visit both private and public albums directly from Pomoto by pressing the 'Visit' button in the album details panel.

It is important to note that a private album is not a secure album. This means that there is no password authentication and anyone with the URL may view the album.

Why don't some friends see the theme I've chosen?

Are they using IE6?

In order to avoid wasting enormous amounts of time catering to IE6, we decided to make only one of our theme groups (the 'Basic' group) IE6 compatible. Therefore, if you have chosen a theme from one of the other groups, anyone viewing your gallery with IE6 will see the Pomoto default theme (Basic Silver).

Do your friends a favor and tell them to use a real browser like Firefox, Opera or Safari.

I don't have a credit card, how can I subscribe?

We currently rely on PayPal subscriptions to handle all payments, and PayPal seems to require a credit card for subscription signup. Sorry!

We are considering adding the ability to purchase individual blocks of time. This would allow users to use any form of payment accepted by PayPal. If you're interested in this, please let us know... the more people are interested the faster it will happen! Just drop us a line.

My question isn't here, what should I do?

Have you watched our screencasts? These are short movies that demonstrate Pomoto being used and will probably answer most basic questions. If you still have any questions, just ask us directly on our contact page.
