Choosing a cover image for an archive

A poster image is used on the tile that represents the archive on the home screen in the FotoWeb main interface and helps users identify the contents of the archive.

Note: You can only set a poster image for an archive if you have been given certain administrative privileges.

Choosing a poster image

After logging in, click on the archive you would like to open and browse. If logging in takes you directly to the Pro interface, click on the Fotoware logo to go to the regular FotoWeb user interface.

Now, either search or browse to find an asset that you believe reflects the contents of the archive and select it by clicking on the checkmark next to its filename.

Finally, choose Use as poster on the action bar.

You can also set a poster image on the home screen or the Archives screen. Simply hover over the archive and click on the little image icon that appears in the top left. This opens up the selection window where you can choose a picture from any archive, album or your pinned items. You can even upload a new picture and use that as the archive's poster image.
