Finding my photos
What is an access code?
An access code is essentially the password to your photo gallery. It is set by the photographer and given out exclusively to the school, organization, and parents of the subjects of the photos.
There are 2 Ways to Access Your Gallery:
- Visit galleries.photoday.io on your mobile or desktop web browser and enter your access code: TOCDMON2023 (Downingtown) TOCDFRI2023 (Broomall)
- Text your access codes to 90738
How do I find my access code?
On or prior to Picture Day, your photographer should have supplied you with an access code so you can view and buy your photos. You can text this code to 90738 and stay up to date with picture day communication and specials, or enter it at galleries.photoday.io.
If you’re unsure of your access code, try searching your emails for a message from email@example.com and/or contacting your organization.
When I text the Access Code TOCDMON2023 (Downingtown) TOCDFRI2023 (Broomall) to 90738, I get a message "There doesn't seem to be a gallery with that access code. Please contact the organization or your photographer."
First, make sure you're texting the correct access code TOCDMON2023 (Downingtown) TOCDFRI2023 (Broomall) to 90738—double check your spelling and make sure there are no unnecessary spaces. The access code must be made active by your photographer for this to work properly. It is important to note the access code is not the same as the verification code. Verification codes are 6 digit numerical codes that are sent when you create a new PhotoDay account and/or purchase an AdvancePay credit.
I receive a "service unavailable" or "service access denied" message when sending a text to 90738.
Contact your mobile carrier and make sure you have a shortcode service enabled with your plan.
Make sure you have a cell signal.
Double-check that you are texting the correct shortcode: 90738
You can always access your gallery by going to galleries.photoday.io on any computer or mobile web browser.
What is a verification code?
Verification codes are 6 digit numerical codes that are sent to your mobile phone when you create a new PhotoDay account and/or purchase an AdvancePay credit. They are used to confirm that it’s really you logging into your PhotoDay account. It’s an extra security measure just to make sure you and your financial information are protected. PhotoDay associates your account with your phone number, so when you attempt to view your shopping cart while being logged out, we might prompt you to enter a verification code to help identify you.
I'm trying to purchase an AdvancePay credit, but I cannot receive a verification code.
AdvancePay credits are mobile verified. This means you will need a mobile/cell number to purchase and redeem the credit. You'll sign in with the same mobile number to access the credit, and you'll receive a 6 digit verification code via text so PhotoDay can be certain it is really you.
If you are not receiving a verification code, first double-check you're entering the correct mobile number. If you still do not receive the verification code, this may be your cellular service provider blocking the PhotoDay shortcode. You can contact your provider and ask them to turn on shortcode texting.
I am viewing my gallery, but I don't see my AdvancePay credit.
Make sure you are signed into PhotoDay so you can access your AdvancePay credit. You can also sign in and apply your AdvancePay credit during Step 3 of the checkout process.
When I visit my gallery, I see "Wait for Greatness." Where are my photos?
This message occurs when your photographer has not yet published the photos for you to view and purchase. You can text the access code to 90738, and PhotoDay will send you a text message when the photos are published.
What is my access code?
On or prior to Picture Day, your photographer should have supplied you with an access code so you can view and buy your photos. You can text this code to 90738 and stay up to date with picture day communication and specials or enter it at galleries.photoday.io. If you don’t have your access code, try reaching out to your photographer and/or organization to receive it.
I have multiple children and want to check out in one transaction.
If your children are located in the same gallery, and you used one access code to find them, you can mix and match in packages and products any way you'd like. However, if you have multiple codes for the same gallery, follow these instructions to checkout and save on shipping.Note: Sometimes you cannot combine access codes into one order. In this rare case, the photographer has created multiple galleries. Try reaching out directly to your photographer for help.
The photo will not fit into the product I am trying to order.
Sometimes images are created to be ordered a specific size. If your image contains graphics or text and it is being cut off while trying to order a specific print size, reach out to your photographer for help. They may be able to adjust the images/text so you can order the sizes you desire accordingly.
The checkout button is greyed out.
If this happens, it could be a few things. First, try to re-confirm the products by opening each item in your cart and ensuring the crop and images are confirmed. Next, you can try using another web browser as sometimes extensions or plug-ins can interfere with the security of PhotoDay (for example: if you’re using Chrome, try using Safari. Or if you’re using a mobile phone, try using a computer). If you still need help, reach out to the PhotoDay Customer Success Team by opening the orange bubble in the bottom right corner of your screen.

I ordered a high-resolution download, but the printing service I am trying to use is telling me it is not large enough.
PhotoDay compresses downloads to help save storage space on devices. The image that is downloaded is the same resolution your photographer previously uploaded to PhotoDay for sale. Some web-to-print retailers will not recognize this compression. You can re-open the file on a desktop and re-save it to bypass the compression or contact your photographer to retrieve another file.
What can I do with a social sharing download?
Social Sharing Downloads are not high enough resolution to be printed and do not contain a print release to do so. They are meant to be shared via email, text, and/or social media with friends and family.

How many costumes can we photograph?
You can photograph one costume per timeslot. We have 5 minutes to capture their photo(s). If you like multiple costumes photographed, you will have to sign up for multiple slots.
Can we do "Best Friend" photos too?
We can photograph any combination within the 5 minutes timeslot. You can do sibling photos, individuals, difficult jumps, but we only have 5 minutes for one timeslot.
Can we buy digital or printed photos?
Yes, the photos from the entire session will be available in an online gallery and will be shared with you. You will be able to order digital or printed photos directly online. Prices and fees for dance team sessions are only valid for a limited time and different than regular sessions. It will take up to 4 weeks to receive the private link to the gallery. Once you selected your photos, it will take up to 2 weeks to deliver the photos to your home.
How much experience do you have?
I photographed many events for local dance studios and companies like Beat Addikts United, TOCD, Shannon Cooper's Academy of dance, 313 dance Company, Reverb Dance Collective, Feet first, Fierce Dance Company and Padua Dance Team. I also have photographed dancers for the cover of Delaware today magazine.
Can I, as a parent, be at the session?
We follow the TOCD rules and regulations for photo day.
We prefer to have only one parent present at the session. That way your dancer can focus on the camera and the photgrapher.
I still have more questions

I'm trying to find my photos with FaceFind, and it's not working.
First, make sure the photo you've selected is clear and has only one face. If you still cannot find your photos, it is possible the photographer has not uploaded them to the gallery. In this case, make sure to reach out directly to your photographer by tapping Contact from the PhotoDay gallery.
I'm trying to view and order photos, but my gallery is expired.

Hi, I’m Sandrien!
As a portrait photographer, I have plenty of experience photographing dancers. I shoot editorial-style photos that capture real emotions and body language, so you get photos that look natural.
