Acceptable Digital Photo File Types

If you do not have access to the digital Photo Center but you do have access to email, you can email your photos to us and we will make them available in your account.

The Digital Photo Center can only accept emails with the following types of attached files:

  • JPEG (.jpg, .jpeg, .jpe)
  • Zip files (.zip) - must contain JPEGs only
  • 3gp video files

Any digital photo you upload must have an ending that matches one of the above file types (e.g., niagarafalls.jpg, weddingpics.zip).

Emailing From a Computer

To email us your photos from your computer, follow these steps:

  1. Email your photos as attachments to save@photos.walmart.com; we'll send you a confirmation message that includes a link to the Walmart Digital Photo Center website.
  2. Sign in to the Digital Photo Center website.
  3. At the top of the Photo Center home page, you should see a message alerting you that you have photos waiting to be added to your account. Click the message to add these photos to your account.
  4. Important: If you don't see this alert, you may have sent the photos from an email address that we do not yet associate with your account. To add this address to your account, go to your Account page and click "Edit Preferences." Add this email address as an "Associated Address." When you return to your home page, you will be able to access your photos.

  5. You'll be taken to a page containing the photos you emailed. Check the box next to each photo you'd like to add to your account.
  6. Click "Add To My Account."

We hold emailed photos for 30 days after we receive them (or for 60 days if we have the email address on file). If you do not sign in to the Photo Center website within that time period, you will need to send the pictures again.
