Upon opening PhotoXchange for the first time, you will be asked to create a user account. This is a requirement to using PhotoXchange as your account will be used to backup photos to the PhotoXchange, you get 250mb for free, and use the pXc site to share your photos.

On the main screen of PhotoXchange you’ll be able to access your photo library, import photos via wi-fi or the camera connection kit, access and edit your profile, and view settings such as IP addresses and FTP settings.
From the Library you’ll see all of the albums that are on your device, PhotoXchange pulls in the albums created in the Photos app. Selecting an album will show you all of the contents of that album and allow you to pick photos to preview before uploading and/or sharing. Once you’ve picked all of the photos that you’d like to preview tap on Show in the top right corner of your device and you will be brought to the Image Details page. At the Image details page, you can swipe through all of the photos you selected and if you’re happy with them you can then tap the Share button in the top right corner to proceed. In the share dialog, you can share your photos with Facebook, Twitter, Dropbox, Google+, Pinterest, Email, and your pXc Webpage. Choosing to share with the pXc Webpage will allow you to select up to 10 photos at a time to upload to a folder on your pXc FTP account. You’ll then be able to access them from the pXc website by signing in with your username.

The Settings of PhotoXchange will give you access to your device’s IP address, your pXc FTP domain, FTP username, FTP password, as well as the Home Path, FTP Root Directory, and the App Version. All of the IP and FTP access will need to be done in an FTP specific app on your iPad or a web browser from your PC. In these directories, you can access any of the photos that you’ve uploaded to your pXc account and then share them from the web.
