Project Center Tenth Edition Help  


Project Images Activity Center

Use this activity center to easily access and browse the image files that are used in the current Project Center project. Project Center automatically adds image  files to this activity center from the Project Files activity center. When image files are added to the project, Project Center automatically adds them here.

From this activity center, you can open image files in the Newforma Viewer, send image files via email, transfer files via Info Exchange, locate the files in Windows Explorer, compare files, view images in a slideshow, and add the files as supporting documents to other Project center items.

1   Project Center uses Windows permissions to govern access to image files.

Drag and drop

You can drag-and-drop image files from your camera or Windows Explorer into this activity center. For example:

  • You can drag files into this activity center to quickly copy them from other locations such as your desktop, and email message, a camera, or another network location.

  • You can drag and drop files from this activity center to your desktop, a local drive, or into Microsoft Outlook as an email attachment.

File type filter drop-down list

Use the filter drop-down list to select the image file types to display from the project. Normally, all image types are displayed. Select a filter to narrow down the list of files by selecting which type to display. For example, if you only want to list video files, select Video (.AVI,  .MOV, .MPG, .WMV) from the drop-down list.

Filter All Columns

You can filter by any text that appears in any of the Items columns. For example, if you know the name (or part of the name) of the file that you are searching for (or the size, type, etc.), enter at least part of the text in this field. The Items list updates automatically as you type. For example, if the file you are searching for has the number 30 somewhere in one of the columns, enter 30 in this field. The list will be narrowed down to only files that have the number 30 somewhere in one of the columns.

Click to toggle between showing and hiding the column filter fields.
