Image Viewer

When you click on an image that has been uploaded to Glip, either from the stream, right pane or the Files app, it is displayed in Glip's Image Viewer. The image is displayed as large as will fit in your browser window, up its original size, so that you get a great view of your digital media.

Left/Right arrows at the bottom allow you to move back and forth through all of the images in the current conversation. The Up/Down arrows allow you to move between different versions of a given image.

Buttons at the bottom-right allow you to perform the following actions:

  • Upload a new version
  • Download the original image
  • Open the original in a new browser tab
  • View the original post in the conversation stream
  • Like
  • Favorite
  • Share to another conversation
  • Move to another conversation
  • Edit the image's filename
  • Delete

Replies / Image Annotation

As with other content types on Glip, you can reply to images that have been shared. These replies are attached to specific points on the image, essentially allowing you to do image annotation. 

You can imagine how this comes in handy when you are collaborating on some digital media. Want this shade of blue to be darker? Need this corner rounded more? Need some copy changed? Reduce the back-and-forth by having your feedback directly connected to the spot on the image that you’re referencing. You can upload a file as a reply (e.g., “Here’s an example of the color I’d like to see here.”) or even post a task to make sure your requested changes actually get done.

When you click on an image on Glip it is opened in the Image Viewer, where you can simply click anywhere to add a reply. Click on the "+" button to the left of the compose box to reply with a task or a file.

The pins on the image represent previous replies. Just click on a pin to see the replies. If there are any incomplete tasks associated with a given pin, the icon in the pin will be an unchecked task box. When all of the tasks associated with a pin are completed, the icon changes to a checked task box.

As with all messages posted to Glip, the replies appear right in the conversation stream, with a reference to the image itself.

Click on the "Proof_Flyer.jpeg" link and it will open the image in the Image Viewer with the pin corresponding to this reply already selected.

    How one can move or delete a misplaced pin?

    Hi Tamas - At the moment, you need to exit the image viewer and then delete the comment from the stream.

    Ideally, the viewer wouldn't have the footer over any of the enlarged image. Currently it's overlapping slightly, which often covers important areas of an image, making viewing it difficult (i.e., don't touch the mouse, wait a few seconds for that stinking footer to disappear...). If the viewer could simply shrink slightly to prevent that overlap, we'd be in better shape -- no need to wait for the footer to disappear. Thanks!


    (that said, if any users out there use a browser add-on like Stylebot to fix their Glip session, you can do what I just did, which works well:  add this style for glip: 

    .photo_viewer .options {opacity: 0.5 !important;}

    I also update the "likes" tooltip so it allows line-breaks, so you can see everyone's names: 

    [data-balloon]:after {white-space: normal;width: 200px;}

    Is there any plan to enable a zoom in/pan functionality?
