I have received an email and I am not sure if it’s from PicDrop

You have received an email and you are not sure if it was really sent by PicDrop?

Here you will find everything you need to know and steps on how best to proceed:

  1. Please check the sender of the email first. Is it the same sender that you typically receive PicDrop notifications and news from? Our emails always come from hello@picdrop.com or no-reply@picdrop.com. Please be careful that it’s not an unusual email address that you haven’t seen before.
  2. Are you prompted to enter your PicDrop login details? We will never ask you to enter your login information on any site other than https://www.picdrop.de or https://www.picdrop.com.
  3. Are you still unsure? Please contact our support at hello@picdrop.com, we can assure you which emails we have sent and which we have not.

Why should I even doubt emails that look like PicDrop?

On November 2018, PicDrop became aware of emails and a fake website trying to pick up user data on our behalf. These were so-called phishing emails.

What are phishing emails?

With phishing, users are lured to fake websites by receiving emails that are often confusingly similar to emails from well-known providers. On these pages, which usually have exactly the same look as the pages and emails they are supposed to imitate, login data is queried. This serves the purpose of “fishing” this data so that the perpetrator can then use it elsewhere. Hence the term “phishing”.

Which characters does PicDrop support in gallery names?

The operation of PicDrop is simple and intuitive, as is the naming of your galleries. However, in some special cases it may be helpful to know which characters PicDrop supports when naming your galleries.

You can use the following characters in your PicDrop gallery names without any problems:

  • A-Z (lower & uppercase)
  • äöü (lower & upper case)
  • 0-9
  • _ – ( ) .
  • As well as spaces if they are not at the beginning or end of the gallery name

The following characters are automatically converted or reduced by PicDrop into your gallery name:

You enter: & or +        PicDrop changes to: und
You enter in: ß           PicDrop changes to: ss
You enter: á               PicDrop changes to: a (letters with diacritical characters are reduced to the basic letters if possible – with the exception of German umlauts)

All other special characters in the gallery name are not supported by PicDrop and will be removed from your gallery name.

Please note, errors may occur with RAW formats of newly released cameras, as the camera manufacturers do not publish their RAW “recipes”. However, we try to keep up as fast as possible and display the pictures reasonably correctly. Feel free to write us! (hello@picdrop.com)

*We recommend to deactivate the alpha channels so PicDrop is able to show a clean picture preview.

Can I sell pictures or order prints via PicDrop?

No. With PicDrop we want to offer a lean, perfect service for the selection and transfer of image data. Selling images and ordering prints is a very large, complex area that other vendors are already doing well and is not on our agenda.
