For those of you with an iPhone, the easiest way to upload a pic to FP Me is with the Free People App. Here’s how:
Download the App: Head to the App store and download the Free People App if you haven’t already.
Sign In: Once installed, open the App and sign in or create an account.
Identify a Trend Hashtag: To find out what hashtags are in use, click on the three pink lines in your upper left hand corner. Scroll down to Features + Trends, and click on Trends. As you select a trend to view, you will see the hashtags written underneath the trend name at the top of your page (ie. #FPSpringItOn).
Add A Pic: Click the FP Me icon in the upper right hand corner. This will navigate you to the FP Me Pic Stream where you can see all of the latest uploads from others in the community. To reach your own profile, click on the profile picture in the center of the bottom tool bar.
Uploading a Photo: To upload, click add a style pic. From here, take a new photo or press the icon on the left to access your library. Crop to your liking and hit save.
Tag Your Photo: Tag items in your photo by clicking add an item and searching for the product name. You can also search by category such as “yoga pant” or “maxi dress” if you’re unsure what the item is called. In the comment box, hashtag a Free People Trend, or add other captions if you wish — don’t forget to credit your photographer if you worked with one!
If you’re an Android user, or want to upload from your desktop follow these steps:
Where to Upload: On desktop, you can either upload a pic through a Trend or on a Product Page.
Uploading to a Trend: Navigate to the Trends portion of our website, by clicking Trends in the top navigation. Click into a trend, and select the Pics icon underneath the main image. From there, scroll down and click Add a Pic then move onto step four.
Uploading to a Product Page: Find the product you wish to add a pic to. Scroll down on the page to where you’ll find the FP Me content. Here you’ll see the Add a Pic icon.
Upload a Pic: Select ‘upload a new pic’ or ‘upload from Instagram’. It’s important to note, you can only upload from Instagram if you’ve linked your account to your FP Me profile. More on how to do that later. For now, hit Choose File and select the photo that you would like to upload. To finalize your pic, click Add a Pic and then I’m Done Show Me My Pic.
Tag Your Photo with Product: Once you’ve uploaded your photo, click back into it and select Add an Item. Search by sku number or product name to find what you’re looking for.
