1. You will need to create a free gmail account from Google for Picture-Alert to function. If you already have a gmail account feel free to use it. Please visit www.google.com and create your new gmail account. It’s a very good idea to have a separate email account for an application like this. This prevents harmful content being sent to a work email address, where most work emails are monitored.
