Happy 2022! We’re back with a handful of new product updates. Thanks to everyone who provided feedback in the past few months - your input is incredibly helpful for us to improve the experience for everyone.  

Here’s what’s new:

  • Skip duplicate uploads. By default, the upload process will skip uploading an image if an image with the same filename has already been uploaded to the same deployment. You can disable this option by unchecking the box "Don't upload duplicate images".

  • Faster image loading with web-optimized images. Wildlife Insights displays a web-optimized image by default to speed up image load times. 

  • Option to view full resolution images. The web-optimized image reduces image quality and in some cases obscures hard to see objects of interest. You can now choose to view either the web-optimized version or a full resolution image by clicking on the Expand button on the right side of the image preview.

  • Sequence projects. We released a new type of project (sequence projects) a few months ago. Sequence projects  are a great way to review groups of images and usage has taken off with the help of Snapshot USA and Snapshot Euro. Thanks to all the sequence projects, we’ve built out these updates

  • An option for users to regenerate a sequence

  • Ability to highlight a single image within a sequence

  • Summary statistics are updated every 24 hours

  • Edit timestamps for sequences

  • Exact filename search. We updated the filename search to remove wildcard characters, so now the search will return exactly what you’re looking for

  • Increased image upload limits. The limit is increased to 20mb per file. 

  • Projects can belong to multiple initiatives. Adding your project to multiple initiatives gives you more flexibility to share and collaborate with partners.

  • Taxonomy filter limited to species & IDs found on the Identify page / Catalogued page. The taxonomy filter is available on both the Identify and Catalogued tabs. The filter has been updated to return only the species that appear on that page.
