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, SVG, and GIF (including light animations). Images are not resized automatically, they are delivered and played back exactly as you have uploaded them.
If you are not using our latest 4K Yodeck player and you are using a previous version of it, like the RPi 3B+, it will be wise to resize your images to Full HD 1920×1080 before uploading them to your Yodeck account. If you do not do that, images with very big resolutions can slow down the player.
On the other hand, our latest 4K Yodeck player is able to decode 4K images so, feel free to upload any 4K images at your account and display them on your 4K TV screen.
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 "Edit" button.
|Duplicate||Create a copy of the Image.|
Delete a single image. The image will be removed from any Playlists or Layouts where it was previously used, and it will not be available in the portal for future use.
Delete multiple images. Select the images you want to delete and press the Bulk Delete button at the bottom of the listing.
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 select photos from the vast range of free stock images you'll find in our Gallery.
You can Upload an Image from your local store or use the Import from URL option to import an Image file hosted in the cloud.
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 layout 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, use "Ctrl" or "Shift" to select multiple files. 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.
Adding an Image(s) 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.
