Your images are now online and cast are completing their approvals – hooray! If they aren’t, head back here to learn what to do.

These next steps will guide you through what you need to do to have your final set of approved images ready to use.

Step 1 – Checking status & downloading report

Check out this video to see how to see how your cast are getting on, what to do when they have marked themselves as done, and a handy little bonus feature that lets you highlight your preferred images.


Step 2 – Creating lists

So you don’t have to manually cross-reference your reports and pull out all of your approved RAW images, we can give you a software script to run that will do this for you. All you need to do is let it know which images are killed and approved…

Extra points to note:

Create your lists using Notepad if on Windows and Text Editor if on Mac.


Step 3a – Running the Script (Windows)

If you are using a Mac, skip to Step 3b.

If you have a lot of images, it may take a long time for the script to run. We therefore recommend leaving it running over night or over a period of time when you can otherwise leave your computer churning away at it.


Step 3b – Running the Script (Mac)

If you have a lot of images, it may take a long time for the script to run. We therefore recommend leaving it running over night or over a period of time when you can otherwise leave your computer churning away at it.

Extra points to note:

In case you missed any of the code details, here is this bit again in writing:

Step 1
Copy and paste the script you are using, into the production folder which contains all of the image folders.

Right click the folder the script is contained in, then hold the option key until you see the option to “copy folder pathname”

Step 2 – The Terminal
Open the Terminal and type cd followed by a space, then paste the pathname you have just copied.

If the pathname contains any spaces, use your keypad arrows to navigate back through the pathname and add a backslash ( \ ) before any spaces.

Now press the enter/return key.

Next, type ls followed by a space then -l and hit return.

You will now see a list of everything inside your selected folder and you can easily copy the filename of the .sh file you want to run.

Next, type sh followed by a space then a period and a forward slash ( ./ ) then paste the script’s filename and hit enter. The script will now run.


Step 4 – Creating high res JPGS

Now you have your approved images, you may wish to create high res JPGS of them. Here’s a quick 2 minute video explaining how to do this.


Approvals complete!

And there you have it – your approvals are complete and your images are neatly organised and easy to find!

The more you go through this process the easier and quicker it will come. If you find that it is a little more work than you would like, or if your computer doesn’t quite have the processing power to run through this quickly and smoothly, then you can always send your stills to us and we can take care of all of this for you.

If you would like us to handle this for your next project, just get in touch and let us know!
