Send images with Skype

Top  Previous  Next


CodedColor allows you to share images on-the-fly with over 5 million Skype users worldwide. Not only can you exchange your favourite photos with your friends and family, you can get in contact with other photographers and discuss your snapshots or photo locations in the chat window or during a free voice conversation.


There are 3 locations in CodedColor, from where you can send an image to a Skype user: the Explorer the Screenshow (Fullscreen)

3.        in the Image Editor


The Skye dialog allows you to compress (resize) an image, in order to save bandwidth, and to add a watermark title to the image. The compression is useful for slow connections over intermediate relay servers, which occur when one of the users is behind a firewall. Also, Skype reserves most bandwidth for phone conversations, so file transfer can be slow.


Another very useful feature of the Skype dialog is the intuitive crop feature. By zooming and panning (moving) the image, you can crop away unwanted parts. Make sure to also enable compression, when you select only a very small area of the photo, so that the image can be blown up to the desired width.


Shared images are stored in the Organizer Conversions folder, if you compressed, cropped or watermarked the image. Original images are not cached in this folder but sent directly.
