Streamline your image workflow

Snapshot provides a suite of device/browser tools for capturing images, from webcams, from screengrabs and by drag and drop. These tools can be attached to buttons in the dashboard toolbar, for example, for use by Administrators. Each tool is also available through an associated block for use on your site pages by any user with permission.

Captured images can be edited, annotated and imported directly into the concrete5 File Manager.

  •   Use a device camera or attached Webcam to snap images. Try It
  •   Capture Screengrabs from the web page or any screen or window. Try It
  •   Drag and drop upload for files and images (many enhancements over core uploader)Try It

With an image captured, you can then add a title and description and even edit or annotate the image itself before uploading to the File Manager.

Flexible uploading rules provide complete control of how files are named and which folders and filesets they are uploaded to. Each upload can be a new file or replace an existing file.

For example, the screengrab here was captured with the Snapshot Screengrab tool as this content was being added to c5magic.co.uk.

A screengrab of editing the Snapshot page, taken and annotated with the Snapshot Screengrab tool.

For each image capture tool Snapshot provides:

  • A dashboard toolbar button that is configured through an associated dashboard page.
  • A block to add a button directly into a page.

Some use-cases:

  • Enable users to update mugshot images or avatars from their webcam.
  • Use a mobile device camera to take photographs and import directly to the File Manager.
  • Quickly add screengrabs to your documentation (as above).
  • Enable users to upload screengrabs for support requests.
  • A more front-end user focussed workflow for any image or file upload.

Full documentation and examples are available at https://c5magic.co.uk/addons/snapshot

The snapshot tools use web APIs for image capture, so may not be available on older browsers that do not support the APIs. Links to browser support matrices are provided from the Snapshot Tools page.

In the support pages sidebar are each of the snapshot tool blocks. Uploading images is disabled, so feel free to have a play with each of the tools and think about how your web sites can benefit from them!

Requires php7+.
