Featured photos are subject photos that used in flyers and gallery thumbnails for private galleries. They can also be used as the primary photo to make anything from ID badges, to yearbooks. These options are, of course, Service Items Files and PSPA Formatted files.
So, how does PhotoDay determine which photo to use?
When you've uploaded your subject photos into your job's photo section, navigate to Subject Overview. You'll be greeted by a pop-up that will ask you how you'd like PhotoDay to feature your photos:
If you don't see the pop-up, you can access it again by clicking the star:
PhotoDay can feature photos by:
First Captured - PhotoDay will use the photo's exif data to determine the first photo captured for a specific subject.
Last Captured - PhotoDay will use the photo's exif data to determine the last photo captured for a specific subject.
First by File Name - PhotoDay will use the first photo of the subject based on file name.
Last by File Name - PhotoDay will use the last photo of the subject based on file name.
Contains Specific Word - Type a set of alpha/numeric characters you've used in the filename to specify each of your subject's featured photo and PhotoDay will automatically use those photos.
To manually set a featured photo, simply select a subject from the Subject's list and select the star icon on the photo you wish to feature.
PhotoDay can also use the subject's photo you've featured as their primary photo for exports. In Exports, simply select the "Featured" option and PhotoDay will use photos you've featured as the subject's primary photo.
