Image Areas | Sync From


Image Syncing

Using the Sync From feature, it is possible to automatically apply any uploaded image to several specified Image Areas. This 'synced' image will then be carried through into the artwork generation process.

In this article, we will be looking at a simple 2D Mug Product which has a full wrap Print Area defined - see Figure 1.

Figure 1 

The first step is to create our input Image Area (called 1. Front in this example). This is what the end user will use to upload an image to the product. As such, User Input Enabled should be turned on. See Figure 2.

With the input Image Area configured, we can then create more Image Areas to 'sync' uploaded images to - this time using the Sync From feature in the Image Area settings. In this case, we want to apply any uploaded image from 1. Front to this Image Area - so we select 1. Front from the Sync From dropdown menu (see Figure 3). User Input Enabled has been turned off here so that the end user cannot interact with this synced Image Area directly within the App.

You can create multiple Image Areas to any size or specification, and use the Sync From feature accordingly. The final result can be seen in the Print Test facility - see Figure 4. Any image uploaded to the input Image Area is being 'synced' to the other Image Areas automatically.

Important Note: The Scale, Move and Rotate tools all work with the Image sync feature. To use them for both, make sure that they are enabled on both the input Image Area and the Sync From Image Area.
