Welcome to the iProle PhotoGrabber. The PhotoGrabber is an easy way to submit photos, comments, and job site information to iProle.
Online Help is divided into the following topics:
The PhotoGrabber is a way to send photos, along with their notes/comments, to iProle for processing. Photos are grouped by "Job Site" and submitted to iProle. The basic process goes like this:
And that's basically it!
You can also swap one photo for another, delete a photo, rotate photos left or right, revise notes for a photo, edit the details of a Job Site, or edit your personal profile.
If you're reading this, then you've probably already logged in, however....
To log into the PhotoGrabber, click the PhotoGrabber link from the iProle main website, and enter your email address and your password, and click the Login button.
iProle assigns logins and passwords to you - there is no way to create a new account from the PhotoGrabber directly. Contact iProle for a PhotoGrabber account if you don't have one.
If you've forgotten your password, click the Forgot My Password link and enter your email address and click the Send Password button. Your password will arrive in your email Inbox shortly (check your SPAM filters if it doesn't arrive within 5 minutes).
Photos are organized by Job Sites. If, for example, you have 5 photos of an installation at "Al's Toy Barn," you must first create a Job Site called "Al's Toy Barn." If there's already an "Al's Toy Barn" Job Site listed, you can add more photos to that Job Site.
To create a new Job Site, click the Add/View/Edit Job Sites link on the Main Menu to get to the Manage Job Sites screen, then click the Add Job Site link, and then fill out the form and click the Save New Site button. The form has fields for: Job Site Name, Job Site Contact, Job Site Project, Job Site Location, and Job Site Date of Install. You must type data into all of these fields when creating a new Job Site.
To edit a Job Site (that is, to rename it or change the Contact, Project, Location, or Date of Install), click the Add/View/Edit Job Sites link on the Main Menu, then click on the name of the Job Site you want to edit in the Manage Job Sites screen. For example, to edit the Al's Toy Barn Job site, click the Al's Toy Barn link.
To delete a Job Site, just click the Delete link next to a Job Site's name. Click OK on the confirmation window if you really want to delete the Job Site. Otherwise, click Cancel.
Once there's a Job Site for your photos (either one you've created, or an existing Job Site), you can upload photos into it.
First, click the Upload Photos link on the Main Menu -- the Upload Images screen appears. Next, select a Job Site from the Choose job site pop-up menu. Then, click the Browse button next to each Filename; a File Upload dialog box appears. Select the photo file on your system you want to upload and click Open or OK. Continue clicking subsequent Browse buttons to add more images. When you've chosen all your images, click the Upload Images button. A pop-up window displays the progress of the upload.
To add more photos to a Job Site, return to the Upload Images screen, select the same Job Site again from the Choose Job Site pop-up menu, and continue adding more photos.
When the PhotoGrabber finishes uploading images, you must add a note or comment to each photo. Simply type your note or comment for each photo in the Note field next to each photo. When you have added a note to each photo, click the Add Text button. The system confirms that you've added a note for each photo, and provides a link back to the Main Menu.
When adding more photos to an existing Job Site, it can be helpful to see what photos are already there.
Start by clicking the View/Edit Photos link on the Main Menu, then click the desired Job Site link. If a Job Site has no photos, the system says so, and provides a link to return to the Main Menu. Otherwise, each of the photos is listed, along with the Notes and other information related to each photo. You can also click on any of the photos to view a full-size version of it in a separate window.
If you don't want to change any of the images or notes, click the Main Menu link on the bottom of the page to return to the Main Menu.
To replace, delete, or alter any of the photos or related information, see the Editing Existing Images and Image Notes section, below.
You can easily edit many aspects of photos. You can delete a photo, change its notes, move a photo from one Job Site to another, and rotate or flip images to that the "right side is up."
All these actions start by viewing the photos in a Job Site, so start by clicking the View/Edit Photos link on the Main Menu, then click the desired Job Site link. Each of the photos is listed, along with the Notes and other information related to each photo.
To delete a photo, click the Delete This Image link beneath it. The system will pop-up a confirmation dialog box: click OK on the confirmation window if you really want to delete the photo. Otherwise, click Cancel.
To change a photo's notes or comments, click the Edit Parameters link beneath the photo. On the new page that appears, type the new notes into the Notes field, and then click the Update Fields button.
To replace an existing photo with another photo on your computer, click the Edit Parameters link beneath the photo. On the new page that appears, near Replace Current File With, click the Browse button; a File Upload dialog box appears. Select the photo file on your system you want to upload and click Open or OK. A pop-up window displays the progress of the upload.
To move a photo from one Job Site to another, click the Edit Parameters link beneath the photo. On the new page that appears, click the Job Site pop-up menu, and choose the job site you want to move the photo to.
To rotate or flip a photo, click the Adjust Image link beneath the photo. On the new page that appears, click either the Rotate Clockwise, Rotate Counter Clockwise, Flip Vertical, or Flip Horizontal buttons. The system may take a few seconds to update the image, so only click each of these buttons one-at-a-time. Click the Main Menu link when you are finished rotating the image.
You can easily change your password and other account information by clicking the Profile link in the Main Menu. This opens the Profile Page, where you can change your First Name, Last Name, Email Address, and Password. Click the Save Changes button to save your changes.
Note that if you change your email addresses, you must use this new address to log into the PhotoGrabber the next time you log in.
