JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – We’ve added a new category to StormPins, our photo and video sharing tool on The Weather Authority app and on News4Jax.com. We know people will be trying to catch a glimpse of the first launch of the first human space flight from U.S. soil since 2011.
Whether you step outside from home or catch the launch from the beach, we’d love to see your photos and videos on StormPins and also feature some of them on air.
To upload your photos or videos, launch The Weather Authority app on your phone or tablet, and click on the camera icon labeled “Pins” in the bottom, left-hand corner of the screen. From here, you can select the red circle on the bottom left that says “Drop Pin” to add a photo or video. Or go to news4jax.com/pins on our website and drop a pin.
That will pull up two options, a camera icon and a photos icon. If you haven’t taken the photo yet, choose the camera icon to take the photo. If you have already taken the photo, select the photos icon to choose which photo or video to upload.
Choose the photo, then it gives you the option to zoom in or crop the image, when you are done with that select “Choose” in the bottom right hand corner.
On the next screen, select the area in the middle of the screen that says “Select pin type” which will bring up a long list of categories, scroll almost all the way down to select “Space”.
That will take you back to the photo edit screen, where you can type a caption into the text box under the words “Tell your story”. Once you are done with that, select the words “Drop Pin” at the top right hand corner of the screen.
If you don’t have the WJXT Weather Authority app with StormPins, it is free to download to your mobile devices
