How to Hide or Delete Photos
From time-to-time there may be photos that have uploaded to the gallery that you do not want to be visible, due to them being test shots, unusable due to poor weather, photos uploaded during site maintenance etc.
Hiding these photos will prevent them from showing up on the Gallery, in your LiveLapse, and will also prevent them from being included in any time lapse videos that you might generate using our Time Lapse Generator.
Follow the steps below to hide photos:
- Login to Control Hub
- Select your installation from the search field
- Navigate to the Photo Management tab
- Select the image(s) that you want to hide, either individually or by using the Select All button if hiding an entire page (Tip: If you want to hide a range of photos, use the Date range function to limit the results. You can also use the Items function to increase or decrease the number of results included on each page.)
- Click the Actions drop-down and then click the Hide Selected option
This will effectively ‘delete’ the photos from view; however, they will still be present on our server. Hidden photos can then only be viewed as a thumbnail on the Photo Management page.
If it is not sufficient just to have the images hidden from all gallery and video views and they need to be deleted, you will need to delete the installation and create a new one. Steps for doing this can be found on our Knowledge Base articles titled ‘How to Conclude an Installation’ and ‘How to Create an Installation’.
