Table of Contents
In the “Images” section, you manage images 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 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 huge resolutions can slow down the player.
On the other hand, our latest 4K Yodeck player can decode 4K images so, feel free to upload any 4K images to your account and display them on your 4K TV screen.
Adding an Image
To add a single image, you click on the ”Add Image ” button found at the images list’s bottom.
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 storage or use the Import from URL option to import an Image file hosted in the cloud.
You can hold [Ctrl] or [Shift] to select multiple files at once.
After successfully uploading an image file you can:
- type in the Name of the image
- an optional Description
- add Tags to the uploaded image
- set the Default Duration of the image if you decide to add it to a playlist
- in 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.
- click Save to finally upload the image
