Album Images Sort

The Album Images Sort section provides options that can be used to apply sorting on the images found in an album.

Privacy Settings

The Privacy section permits you to set whether to ask the user to access the geolocation or not.


This section provides the following options: 

  • No image selection after upload 
    • By default, after the first upload to an album, all the images uploaded are selected. After applying the No images selection after upload options, the images will not be selected after the first upload.
  • Download zip
    • The Download zip option enables the user to download the images in a zip file.
  • Salesforce field on sObject SharinPixImage__c with custom image filename for zip download
    • This parameter allows us to download the image with a custom filename. The value of the custom filename should be stored in a Salesforce field on the SharinPixImage__c sObject. 
    • The Salesforce field API name should then be used as the value for the parameter download_custom_filename, for example: download_custom_filename: 'CustomFilename__c', where CustomFilename__c refers to the API name of the Salesforce field storing the value for the custom filename.
  •  Autosave annotations
    • By default, the save button has to be clicked to save annotations on the image. After applying the Autosave annotations option, annotations are saved automatically as they are added.
  •  Handle to duplicate annotations
    • The Handle to duplicate annotations allows duplication of an annotation.
  •  Zoom slider
    • The Zoom slider provides a slider to zoom in and zoom out of the image.
  • Image color adjustment
    • The Image color adjustment option enables the color_adjustment ability which allows the user to adjust the brightness, contrast and saturation.


Global Settings allow the system administrators to choose which features to be made available for every organizational user by default. After that, you can restrict "who sees what" using SharinPix Permission records or SharinPix Permission Parameters.
