Photo Settings

TOTAL's photo settings affect how TOTAL automatically optimizes and formats your images.

TOTAL's image optimization settings are preset to those which have been tested to return the best results overall.  However, it's possible that you can adjust these settings to achieve better quality for your own images.  To change TOTAL's photo settings:

  1. In TOTAL, click Tools, Configure Settings.
  2. Click the Photos tab on the left.

  3. These settings help you set several options that determine how TOTAL will optimize your images.  The default settings have been shown to work across a broad cross-section of images.  However there are settings you can change if you'd like a different result:
  4. Occasionally, TOTAL will need to add a new photo page to accommodate an image you have inserted.  You can choose what type of photo page to add in the Page Settings drop-down.
  5. Click Apply or Save & Close to save your changes.

QuickPix Importer

The QuickPix Importer section of your photo settings allows you to specify default values for the City, State, Zip, and Neighborhood fields so that when you load your image previews, these fields are automatically populated for you.  Follow the instructions below to set the default values for these fields:

  2. In the QuickPix Importer section, enter the values that you'd like to automatically populate for the City, State, Zip, and/or Neighborhood.  You can enter values for all of the fields, or fill out a single field such as the City or State.

  3. When you're finished, click Save & Close on the lower right.
  4. Once you've saved your changes, click Load Previews again in the QuickPix Importer, or close and reopen the QuickPix Importer for the changes to take effect.
