Starting your image service fulfillment workflow
You can download the image service orders you need to fulfill using one of three methods:
- Use the checkbox to select all or specific image service orders to download.
- Use the Download All button to download all incomplete image service orders.
- Use the AutoProcess toggle to automatically download (and automatically upload) image service orders.
Once downloaded, you can begin performing the ordered image service. The images will download into separate folders in your download directory named after the image option ordered. The image files will also be named after their corresponding value in the column Image ID, providing easy lookup and order reference when needed.
Finishing your image service fulfillment workflow
When you're finished performing the image service, save the file in your specified upload directory to wrap up your image service. Blueprint looks inside your upload folder and processes replacements only if the filename remains unchanged from when it was downloaded.
Once they've been saved to the folder and Blueprint recognizes the file, you'll be prompted to sync in Blueprint. With AutoProcess on, new images will automatically upload every 5 minutes.
***IMPORTANT: You can save the processed images directly into the root of your specified upload folder. No need to add in any subfolders.
