When you select assets in the main FotoWeb interface, the action bar shows all the things you can do with the selected assets.
The options that are available will depend on how your system administrator has configured the archive. Below is a list of all the functionality that is available with links to the relevant topics that describe the individual features.
Add metadata to the current selection of assets.
Add to album
Add the selected assets to an album. You can create private collections or share them with others.
Use as poster
Use the selected image as the poster for your archives on the home page and the Archives page. This can help users identify the content of the archive. This option is only available when a single asset is selected.
Move the selected assets to another archive or folder.
Copy the selected assets to another archive or folder.
Rename the selected assets. You can even rename a whole selection of assets and add incremental numbering to the filenames.
Set the current status of the selected assets. This can for example be used as a visual indicator of the asset's workflow state.
Rate the selected assets. Rating helps you rank the value of your digital assets. It also affects how search hits are sorted in the Office plugin - higher ranked assets are shown first.
Add a note to an asset. An asset with a note applied gets a yellow, clickable marker in the top right corner so other users can identify the note.
Delete an asset or a whole selection. Use this function with care.
Export an asset for embedding in a CMS system. Only available when a single asset is selected.
If a video or audio file fails to transcode correctly, or if for some reason there is a need to initiate a new transcoding of the original asset, use the Re-Transcode button. This option is only available to Site Administrators.
The archive may also have been configured in such a way that some of the actions have been added as buttons on the action bar with a custom color, icon and label.
