This guide will explain the various functions of the Photo Moderation Tab.

If you are familiar with the Photo Moderation Tab and would like to know more about how to use it with Hashtags, please click here.

The Photo Moderation Tab utilizes the Waiting and Watched Folder. Here is where you can do moderation of photos and determining which image gets to be placed on the live digital mosaic.

1. Image Selection: There are two display windows within this section from which images can be selected and moved from. On the left, it displays images that are in the hashtag folder. On the right of the hashtag folder is the waiting room folder panel, it displays images that are in the waiting folder. To move images from the waiting room folder on the left to the watched folder on the right, simply drag and drops them from the left to the right. If you check the option "Ask for move confirmation", when you drag an image from the hashtag folder/waiting room folder to the watched folder, the software will prompt you for confirmation before moving it to the watched folder.

2. File Types: This section allows you to specify what type of images can be used in the live digital mosaic. 

3. Watched Folder Options: This section has three features: Include Subfolders, Show Placed Images, and Ask for move confirmation. If you check the "Include Subfolders" option, any subfolder of images located within the watched folder will also be used in the build-up of the live mosaic activation. "Show Placed Images" will refresh the watched folder display in the Image Selection section, showing a checkbox with a checkmark next to each image that has been placed onto the live digital mosaic. If you check the "Ask for move confirmation" whenever the images are moved from the "Waiting Room Folder" there will be a notification box asking if that is the number of images that you want to move into the "Watched Folder".

4. Waiting Folder: If you want to moderate images coming into the waiting folder, you'll need to place your images in the waiting folder in order for them to show up in the Waiting section. We do not recommend the use of directly syncing the waiting folder for where your images will come in from.
