    Here is this week's new tip! 

    Attaching videos

    You can now add pictures and videos directly from your phone. You can upload up to 100MB with a 30 seconds timeout. Use the lowest resolution while filming to keep the video files to a manageable size.  

    Inviting other Pros

    You can invite other potential Pros on DoF by clicking the link located at the top of the homepage, then you simply enter the person's email address to send out the invitation.
