The photo gallery button is available in all maps except widgets, and can be used to display all photos which are stored with any geography visible within the frame of the map. The photo gallery will only look at active (visible) layers.
In the above screenshot, issues, site visits, and site uses are all displayed, which means the photo gallery will display photos associated with all past site visits, issues, or site issues. You could also activate the baseline layer to see photos stored with baseline report assets.
The photo gallery automatically filters based on the frame of the map, so zooming/panning the map changes what's displayed:
Clicking on a photo thumbnail opens the photo editor window. You can navigate to the next/previous available photo by using the left and right arrow buttons or they left/right arrows on your keyboard.
Select a photo by clicking on the check mark to see some additional options. You can download the selected photos by clicking on the cloud icon. Selecting the filter icon will show only those photos in the gallery, allowing you to toggle easily through a narrower selection of photos. Clear the selection by clicking the 'x'.
Viewing the gallery in an expanded map can be useful if you'd like to see more on the map:
Photo Galleries and Views
The photo gallery button is also available in view maps, which can be useful for reviewing a larger selection of photos. For example, if you'd like to see all of the photos taken on site visits within the last month, you could make a view query like this:
Then select 'view as map':
When the map is displayed, select the gallery button to see all the photos taken within the past month. You can hover over the photo thumbnails to see where they're taken, or zoom/pan around the map to see the photos taken at various sites.
Using the Photo Gallery to find 'hidden' photopoints.
Occasionally two or more photopoints may overlap so exactly that the underlying photopoints cannot be easily accessed, since the same one is always displayed on top. This usually becomes apparent when, after editing photopoint names and photo descriptions in a site visit, some 'mystery photos' appear in the report whose location cannot be found. By utilizing the gallery button on your site visit map, you can find the photos, click on them, change the descriptions if you need to, or navigate to the parent photopoint by clicking on the 'back' button from the photo editor window:
Once the points have been found, you can merge them or separate them on the map so they can be distinguished.
