Basic functionality

The following basic functionality is available without logging in as superuser.

ShutterSnitch is based on the idea that one can get a warning if certain values don't meet criteria that one feels is necessary. To set up these warnings, tap the Options button in the top left corner and choose "Warnings". In the dialog that comes up, you simply tap the green plus-button to add a new rule:

Image

Tap the light blue buttons to change the values. Tap the red minus-button if you want to delete a rule.
Once the images arrive - or while you're browsing them, you'll be warned if any of these rules are broken.
Tap the Done button in the top right corner to save these settings.

To add a new collection tap the plus-sign in the top right corner and give it a name:

Image

Inside a new collection you won't have many options - until you get some images in there.

Image

As you can see, you have a quick shortcut to the warnings-setup if you wish to temporarily turn warnings on or off.
When you enter a collection you will see some "Listening info" in the bottom right corner - this way you're sure that you're connected to the wireless network, which port you're listening on, which IP address you've gotten and if you've set up an Eye-Fi upload key in the Settings app, you will also see if Eye-Fi receiving is enabled. Note that if you're only going to be using an Eye-Fi card then the port and IP address are of no interest. These are only used for FTP transfers.

This listening information disappears after a little while - if you want to see the info again, tap the "Show listening info" button.

You also have the option of importing images from the photo album on your device. If the device has a camera, you can also snap a picture directly from there and import it.

Image

Tap the pictures to import them. Note that importing is just a convenience feature - the way you're going to get images into your collection will of course be wirelessly from your camera - this is covered later on.

Once you have some images in your collection, you'll have a few more options from this button:

Image

Image Overlays lets you pick overlays such as guides, custom logos, or templates.
Image Overlays > Crop Mask lets you pick a crop-overlay, so you can easily check if an image would fit a certain crop ratio.

Image

Image Overlays > Image Mask lets you pick an image as an overlay. Read more about it in the Image Masks post.

Image

Note that you can only add / edit these overlays if you are logged in as superuser.

Slideshow turns your collection into a slideshow. If you connect an external screen, it will show up in this popup as an output option.

Image

If you tap and hold the current photo, you'll be presented with a popup menu, from which you can choose to view the histogram.
Two more options are available if you're logged in as superuser - "Use in coll. overview" which will make the current image the thumbnail for the collection and "Description" which gives you a way of adding a description and byline to the photo.

Image

At the far right you have the star-ratings. Rate by tapping the stars or remove a rating by tapping the blank line at the top.

Image

If you only want to see the rated images, turn on the "Show only tagged images". The "filmstrip" at the bottom will turn a dark blue to signal that it's filtered. The images will be sorted on their ratings. To view all images again, simply tap the star-rating button again and turn the filter off.

Tap and hold any photo in the filmstrip to get a list of options:

Image

Copy will copy the photo to memory.
Open in... shows you a list of apps that have registered as being able to open that kind of photo. Tap the app to open the file in that program.
Print lets you print the photo if you have a Airprint accessible printer.
File information shows you the file information and metadata for the tapped photo.
