so I discovered iRave for photo sharing from my friends and family, but since it’s in beta and doesn’t have a lot of info onthe site, I figure I’ll ask around here and see if anyone else has used iRave and if you can answer my questions.
First, is there a limit to the uploads? Is there a memory limit? Do they resize the pictures or can we download the pictures at the original, high quality? Do you like using it? And if anyone would be ok sharing their iRave albums, that would be great too!

I’m preparing little reminders to share photos tucked into my wedding favors. I went to check the site today, and it’s down. Is this permanent or temporary? 🙁

I set up a account and have been trying to upload pictures myself to test it before sending it out to guests. It keeps crashing on me!!!
I’m giving up and going to other options!

Dear Future Brides,
Be very wary when using iRave. There was another thread dedicated to this topic, but right now, it’s down. The latest comment on that thread sufficiently summed up my experiences:
“Author: PComment:After reading Mrs. lemon’s post and carefully selecting iRave amongst all the other website, it turns out that iRave is a complete joke. My wedding was in October, and since then, only 2 people have been able to upload their pictures to me. Seriously, 2 guests out of 225 were able to upload their photos??? Despite emailing their customer service MULTIPLE times and calling them MULTIPLE times, they have yet to return my message and/or resolve the issue. I printed a ton of photosharing cards for our wedding, and our guests are unable to even send their photos to us.
I recommend NOT going with iRave. You won’t get your pictures, and you won’t get a damn response from their customer support either.”
I, too, was taken by Mrs. Lemon’s initial review of the website (hey, where did that go?); it was great in theory. However, three months ago, when the site was down for what I assumed was beta testing, I emailed customer support to no avail. I also printed out photosharing cards that were distributed at my wedding. Several guests, tech-savvy and not, have told me that they couldn’t upload to the website. I myself have tried to email pictures to it, but they wouldn’t take. The site has been randomly unavailable, which could induce panic if this is the only place where your guests are uploading.
Unlike other photo sharing sites, there’s no guarantee that your photos will still be around. If you are currently usng iRave, pay up and download your wedding photos ASAP. If you’re trying to save yourself a few dollars, using the iRave photo sharing site is not the way to go.
