Selecting that media type will minimise this popup menu allowing you to then take/record the media. Once a media item has been captured, a preview will be shown at the bottom left of the application. You are able to take muiltiple photos etc but the last taken media item will be shown in the very bottom left of the application..

Clicking the small preview will take you to the editing area for captured media. You are able to swipe left and right between each media item.

Audio clips and video clips are playable, whereas with pictures you are able to edit them further by clicking the following icon at the bottom left of the preview window.

This will open up the photo editor. Here you are able to download packs in order to add stickers, frames, effects, or even just write on the image.

Once you have made the desired changes to the photo click the "Done" button at the top right to be taken back to the media preview window.

Once you're happy with the captured media, when viewing the preview window you are able to navigate to the upload screen by clicking the bottom central button.

 

Sending Media to FrogLearn Sites/Timelines

When you are viewing the uploader screen you will see the media you have taken at the top of the application in a small thumbnail preview. By default only the last media item is selected, as indicated by a green tick in the bottom right of the preview. To select more than one item to upload simply single left click more previews to turn them from grey to green.

Please Note: You are only available to upload three media items at one time.

 

s18.png

 

By default the area under the media previews in the "Add To" section has "FrogDrive" selected. This means if you were to hit the green bottom upload button that the selected captured media would upload to your users My Documents area in the FrogDrive application.

What you may wish to do is send this media directly to a site that contains a site timeline or photo stream widget. In order to do this click where it says "sites". The number beneath this displays the number of sites you as the logged in usert, have access to upload media to.

Please Note: Users must have Can Contribute or Can Edit & Manage permissions to a site to upload media items.

After clicking "Sites" you will be presented with a list in alphabetical order of all the sites you have access to upload media to, simply single left click a site from this list to select it.

 

s19.png

 

Once a site has been selected you will have returned to the uploader window where you can add a description for the media item and keywords.

 

s20.png

 

Adding a description simply means there will be a description of the media if uploaded to a site within a site timeline.

Adding tags allows you to send a media item to a particular site timeline. You may have a site with multiple site timeline widgets present so by specifying tags in a site timeline widget you are able to add the same tag as a keyword through FrogSnap to ensure media is displayed where desired.

When you are ready to upload your media, click the bottom central green upload button.

 

s21.png

 

You will be shown a progress bar of the percentage of media items that have been uploaded. Once the media has finished uploading you will be presented with a screen similar to the following screenshot, indicating the upload has been succesfull.
