Vidigami March Release – What’s New?
We’ve made 3 changes related to working with media in Vidigami.
- Users can choose a file size when downloading images.
- Increased visibility for private groups in the Group Directory.
- Users can Batch-add context tags, watermarks and copyright holders to multiple files.
Here’s a summary of what’s new:
1 – What is the best file size to download (web only)
Users with the Download Media Permission now have two options available. The default image that can be downloaded from the Lightbox is optimized for online display or web quality. Users may choose to download original quality images.
Note: All images downloaded from the Vidigami mobile app are original images as they are captured in full-resolution. Similarly, batch downloaded images are original images. There is no option to batch download reduced resolution images.
2 – Private groups at a glance
Setting a group to be Private via the Group Settings (or upon creating a new group from the Group Directory) displays a ‘locked’ indicator on the group icon, meaning that it is now private and only members can access it.
Note: You may want to set internal groups for Faculty & Staff, Administration, Yearbook, and Marketing as Private. This will ensure that content ‘in-the-works’, publication photography, and team-based group sets used for administrative purposes are not made public to other members of your school year!

3 – Batch-add Metadata
Users with the following permissions may now batch-apply new metadata to images:
- Manage Tags: Users have access to the batch add function from the batch-select bar
- Apply Tags: Users can Batch-add context tags to multiple photos or videos.
- Manage Albums: User can designate a common Copyright holder, or, replace a current Copyright holder with a new one. (Because multiple files may contain a combination of metadata - some with watermarks, different context tags and copyright holders - this feature only enables you to batch-add new information, not remove existing information.)
- Manage Watermark: Users batch apply a watermark to multiple image files.
See: Batch-add Metadata
These actions enable users to protect the rights of multiple files and manage the tags for each media so it is searchable and relevant to the right people. All the permissions above are enabled by default for Admins and Managers.
In order to edit the data for individual media, users can open the media via the Lightbox, and access the more info option to add, remove or modify the context tags, copyright holder, and whether or not (the image) requires a watermark.
