[Mobile] Uploading and Tagging Photos

Thao Nguyen Updated by Thao Nguyen

On the mobile app, there are many different places where you can upload photos, which is available across all departments. Just look for a Camera Icon or (+) Add Photo button which are displayed on various pages throughout the app. 

While you are uploading photos, you can add tags that will help you find your photos easier. If you don’t want to tag photos during the upload process, no worries! You can always tag the photos later.

Pro Tip: You must give SyncOnSet permission to access your mobile device’s camera roll and camera in order to take and upload photos.

Uploading Photos

To upload photos:

  1. Tap a Camera Icon or an (+) Add Photos button:
  2. Select the photos you’d like to upload from your camera roll or take a picture directly from the mobile app.
  3. Tap Next. 
  4. If desired, add a description and tags. Depending on what page you are uploading photos from, some tags will be added by default. Tap (+) Add Tags to add more.
  5. Tap Save.

Once the photos are uploaded, you can find them in the various Galleries available on the mobile app (e.g. Character Gallery, Scene Gallery, etc.) The tags assigned to your photos determine what Gallery the photos appear in.

Pro Tip: You can also upload photos by tapping on the Pencil icon anywhere in the app. This icon takes you to an Edit Form where you can tap (+) Add Photo to upload photos that will automatically be tagged to the applicable entities.

Tagging Photos

Tagging photos indicates what Character, Item, Prop, Set Piece, Change, Scene, and/or Set your photos are assigned to. Photos can either be tagged individually or in bulk and can be tagged as "Research" if they are research photos. If photos are not tagged during the initial upload, you can always add additional tags at any time.

Pro Tip: Tagging photos is particularly beneficial when you’re ready to generate Reports, such as the continuity book.

To tag an individual photo:

  1. Tap Gallery in the top navigation bar of the Scene, Character, Set, Change, or Look View page you’re in, or tap into the Inventory View page of any Item.
  2. Tap the photo you want to add tags to. 
  3. Tap Add Tags.
  4. Use the search bar at the top or select one of the categories to find additional tags.

Note: The photos you want to tag will only exist in their respective Galleries if the photos have already been tagged to them. If they haven't been tagged at all, you'll find them in the Untagged Photos tab in the Main Menu.
