I suggest you ...

Make some family viewers only

Can you invite family that you want to view your content but not be able to comment on it?

        Why do I have to share my photos in order for lifecake to open? Is that new? I just noticed it after I uploaded my phones software. I just want to look at my granddaughters pics, not upload any of my photos I can see where people would get upset if others uploaded pics to their accounts. There definitely should be restrictions and I don't see why you need access to my pics when I'm never going to post any. Should I be sending an email to lifecake or do they reply to these comments?

      • Jessica commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Agreed. As the admin/parent I'd like to be the only person posting the pictures. It would be great if there was an option to restrict the other users from uploading pictures

      • Kelly Reark Borza commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I would like to be able to allow invited persons to VIEW my photos but NOT DOWNLOAD, UPLOAD, SHARE or do anything else to them!!

      • Amber commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I need this too, I don't wa t comments at all, it will cause too much distress between family who do not speak to each other, the whole point if an app like this is I don't want to have to send 3 or 4 separate emails of my child's day, 1 simple upload to multiple (invisible recipients) please!

        Please get a grip of this... it's your top comment but was made in 2013 and has not been actioned.

        I now have to have an awkward conversation with a lunatic member of my family who is adding terrible photos of my children to the account. Please provide a setting where they can view but not upload/comment.

        Agree...may of us use LifeCake to share, catalogue, and to keep our kids off of social media. I agree that we should have the ability to turn on/off the following functions for each user:
        V IEW (obviously the default)
        EDIT (such as title and rotate)
        ADD/UPLOAD
        COMMENT
        SHARE (I don't want someone else putting pictures of my kids on Facebook)
        DOWNLOAD

        I agree with this idea. If the parents wanted to post their children on social media they would already have done it and others don't have the right to do it without their permission. Sure the children's pics are cute, but let the parents share them. Pictures can go viral and you have no control over who might see them on social media. Lifecake is great because the parents choose the viewers, but if the viewers think they can go pasting a child's picture everywhere then the parents lose that control.

      • Seré Altebrando commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Yes please. I would like to control who can have what level of access as far as downloading and uploading. If I could also share some pictures with certain groups that'd be great.

        Please add a function to limit family members ability to upload photos.

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I'm more concerned about limiting the ability to upload/download, but I think limiting the ability to comment should also be possible.

        There are many other services/social media platforms which offer fine grained permissions - why not be able to tick a box for each user re viewing, downloading, uploading, commenting, loving, and sharing on social media?

        I love lifecake, but this issue is really holding me back from sharing it more widely...

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        This would be so great. I appreciate the drive for simplicity but I think here flexibility wins out over a little extra complexity - facebook has multiple permission levels very successfully.

        This is really holding me back sharing our baby's lifecake more widely. I want to 'curate' the stream, to make it concise and appealing for people to flick through rather than full of lots of overlaps, duplicates etc. At the moment I have to have this conversation with everyone I invite, it would be so much easier (and more reliable!) if there was a standard permission level to just view and comment.

        If people who are given this privacy setting click on the '+' button, they could just see a message asking them to email their photos to the parent perhaps?

        Thumbs up also to the idea of limiting sharing to social media - one of the main reasons we're using lifecake is because we don't want photos of our baby all over social media..

        We have a family member who makes inappropriate comments regularly (mostly about our parenting as "jokes"), but it would cause major strife for us to make it so she couldn't comment at all. I'd like to be able to delete comments when necessary. Yup, not confronting the problem, we confront enough with this person all ready.

        I want family to be able to see the photos but not to be able to upload them to social media...it would be great if we could select permissions...
