8.1. Android Mobile Image Uploader

Overview:

SSB has an image uploader app available for Android devices. The app is free and only requires you have an active SSB account.

Download App:

The app is currently unavailable on the Google Play Store, as we are updating it to meet their new requirements.

Although the old version of our SSB Uploader (Version 1.0.5) is no longer on the Google Play Store, it may still be used. You can click on the following link to download the old version's APK file:

Once the APK file is downloaded to your phone, all you need to do is use your phone's file explorer to locate it, and tap on the file to "open" it. Your phone should ask if you wish to install the APK file, and the app installation will begin if you agree.

[!] If your phone does not allow you to download or install the file, please check our APK File Installation FAQ. If you are still unable to install the app, please contact SSB Support for further assistance.

If you change your mind about an image, simply tap it again to deselect it. You can also tap Cancel to deselect everything and return to the main page without uploading anything. Once your images are selected, tap OK, and your selected images will begin uploading.

Upload From Camera: Tap this option to take a new photo. Your phone's camera app should open. (If it does not, check your phone settings to make sure that SSB Uploader has permission to use your phone's camera.) Take the photo. If it didn't come out right, tap Retry and take the photo again. Otherwise, tap OK, and the photo you took will automatically begin uploading.

A progress bar for your uploading image(s) will be shown. When it reaches 100%, and your upload is complete, you will be returned to the main page.

Settings:

If you tap the 3-dot menu icon in the top right of the Main Page, a menu will open with three options: learn About the app's current version, move to the Settings page, or Email support.

IMAGE SETTINGS:

Here, you can set the Width and Quality you want your photos to have when uploaded to our server. Tap Category to choose an Image Manager category, or create a new one by choosing the Custom Category option, entering a name, and tapping Ok. (Note: Custom Category is the first option in the Category list, above Uncategorized. You may need to scroll up to see it.) The new custom category will be shown on the Settings page preceded by "Custom:" (for example: "Custom:Flowers").

If you have a Watermark established in your web account, you have the option of watermarking your images. Checkmark the checkbox to use a watermark, or un-check it to leave it out. (If you do not have a watermark, no watermark will be added, regardless of whether the box is checked or not.)
