What is a Job?
Think of a Job like a folder that contains all of the Images, Orders, and Subject Data for a specific shoot or event. Everything else built and configured in Blueprint is used as the building blocks for a new job. Any local changes made in a Job can be synced back to the ImageQuix Cloud and be made available on every device with the app.
Getting started with Jobs
Click on the Jobs button to access the Jobs List. This is where you'll see all jobs your studio has created along with attributes like Sync/Status, Image Count, and Type. Click on any Job Title to open a Job.
Use the big, green, + New button to create a new one using the New Job Wizard.
Pro Tip: Made changes to a Job but aren't seeing them on a different device? Try clicking on Refresh to pull down the latest data from your account.
Creating a Job using the New Job Wizard
There are multiple pages with options to configure in the New Job Wizard, but this guide will only go through the minimum requirements needed to create a job. Check out our intermediate guides for a complete breakdown of Job Creation.
Once you've opened the New Job Wizard, you'll be prompted to enter the following:
Make sure to make this something easily identifiable for both the studio and your clients. They'll be able to see the title (or name) when they visit their gallery or browsing for it using Keywords.
Select the appropriate Job Type for accurate reporting, job filtering, applying Job Specific Discount Codes, and more.
Here you will find several options for configuring your job:
- Subject - Learn the difference between a Subject and Standard Job
Most commonly used for school jobs. Each individual has a unique online code assigned and this will be used as their password to access images online.
NOTE: This option is checked by default. Uncheck this option to create a Standard Job. This option is locked once the job is created.
This option enables pre-ordering on a gallery. Make sure to associate a Custom Form to collect subject data if you weren’t provided any by the school!
- Green Screen
One of the most unique and powerful features of Blueprint, the Green Screen feature allows your clients to see their pose(s) render in real time with backgrounds. To use this feature, you must have backgrounds added to your price sheet.
NOTE: This option is locked once the job is created.
The hidden feature removes the job from your Studio's Gallery Landing Page within our system. Customers will only be able to access the gallery with a direct link copied from the Job List.
This section determines the image size and quality that is uploaded to the ImageQuix cloud. You can choose between a Large Format (recommended selection; up to 6000 ppi) for the best lab quality available or Standard Format (up to 3200 ppi) for faster uploads in exchange for lesser quality.
You can also only allow the subject's primary image to appear in the online gallery and disable face detection. Disabling face detection will provide a faster import of images by disabling the Auto-Headsizing feature in Smart Tag and Image Editing.
NOTE: Disabling Face Detection is locked once images are added to the job.
Assign the appropriate Price Sheet to the job. You can choose from the drop-down list of all Price Sheets created in your studio's account or by typing in the textbox to search for a specific one.
Assign the appropriate Cart Template to the job. You can choose from the drop-down list of all Cart Templates created in your studio's account or by typing in the textbox to search for a specific one
Create or Continue
Once you're finished, click on the green Create button in the top-right corner to finish creating your Job. Once created, you'll be taken to the Subjects tab inside your newly created Job.
Pro Tip: Click the checkbox at the top to automatically enter the Import Wizard after creating your new Job.
