Exporting photos, thumbnails and meta-data for issues
What type of photo files are used when exporting issues to PDF?
When you're exporting issues to PDF, you can export their associated photos as either thumbnails or HD photos. Depending on the options you've chosen for photos and issues count, the exported PDF is then downloaded to your desktop or uploaded into Docs Register/Temporary files.
The PDF file is downloaded to your desktop if you have an export of:
- 1000 or fewer issues, with the photo thumbnail option selected
- 200 or fewer issues, with the high resolution photos option selected
In all other cases, the export files are uploaded into Docs Register/Temporary files.You'll be notified by email once the upload is complete. The email will include a link to download the exported file.
HD photos option
Each of the four most recent HD photos exported:
- will be high-resolution
- have a width of 240 pixels,
- will maintain the aspect ratio for height
- are optimized for PDF down- and upload.
If you want to export more than four photos per issue, these can only be exported as thumbnails of 120 pixels.
This includes the:
- associated issue status
- details of the user/organization uploading the photo
- timestamp of the upload.
The examples below show the difference between the thumbnail and high-resolution photos.
Exporting and messaging
To make it easier to find files, you can enter a custom file name in the File Name field when exporting an issue via the Export options window.
When you run an export, you can choose between All thumbnails or High-resolution.
If you’re making large numbers of exports, you’ll see messages with updates about progress and export times.
