In the "Images" section you manage images that can be used for playback on your Players.
Yodeck supports any image file type that can be displayed in a modern browser. These include JPEG, PNG, and GIF (including light animations). Images are not resized automatically, they are delivered and played back exactly as you have uploaded them.
It is not recommended to use images with a resolution higher than 1920×1080, because they can slow down playback. In this case, try to resize them before uploading.
In the "Images" section, you can see a list of the images currently uploaded into your Yodeck account. Image information is organized in the following columns:
- the Name of the Image
- the Timestamp (date and time) that the Image was uploaded
- a Preview (thumbnail) of the actual image
- an Actions column, with 3 buttons for making changes
In this list, you can:
|Preview||Preview the Image by clicking on the thumbnail in the "Preview" column.|
Change the details of an Image by clicking the blue "edit" button.
|Duplicate||Create a copy of the Image.|
|Delete||Delete a single Image. The image will be removed from any Playlists or Shows where it was previously used, and it will not be available in the portal for future use. |
Delete multiple images. Click on the images you want to delete and press on the delete button of just one.
Move to another Workspace
|You can move images to different Workspaces. Choose the Workspace of your choice and click Move. This feature is only available in the Enterprise plan.|
|Search||Search for a specific image using the search tool.|
By clicking on the "Edit" or "Duplicate" option of an Image file, there is a button called under the thumbnail of the Image which leads to a complete Image Editor, where you can modify the way the Image looks (Crop, rotate, resize), add filters, text, stickers and many more.
Adding an Image
To add a single image, you click on the "+ Add a New Image" button found at the bottom of the Images list.
As a next step, you are requested to choose if you want to upload your own photo or choose photos from among many stock images from our Gallery.
You will also find the following fields where you can:
a. see the Source of the image file
b. type in the Name of the Image
c. add an optional Description for it
d. add Tags to the uploaded image
e. set the Default Duration of the image if you decide to add it to a playlist.
f. From the advanced features, you can set the Play From /Play Until parameters. In other words, you can set the expiration date, which means that you can choose the exact date and time that this image will display in your playlist or show or you can set the "Always" and "Forever" setting and the image will never expire.
Clicking "Save" will upload the image.
Adding Multiple Images
To add multiple images at once, click on the "+ Add Multiple Images" button. In the File selection dialog box that appears, keep the Ctrl button on your keyboard pressed to select multiple images. All selected images will be automatically uploaded.
REMEMBER: After making changes in your Account, you need to Push Changes to your Monitors
Adding an Image with the Drag 'n Drop option
You have the option to add a Media by dragging the specific file or files from your PC directly to your Image Library, therefore skipping a few steps and saving you some extra time.
The Drag 'n Drop option is also available in the Folder View.
