Creating a Photo Stack Display

Overview

Photo Stack Display is a type of Live Display where the assets are arranged in a stack. This shows each of them one at a time and at a certain interval that is configured in the transition settings.

This article explains how to create and configure a Photo Stack Live Display. This article also includes information about Live Displays and some facts about Photo Stack Displays.

 



Information

Live Displays are typically used in live events such as concerts and festivals, and Photo Stack is one of these types. The embed code script is not an option for these types of Displays. Live Displays can only be published as a standalone page.

The Photo Stack Display also shows the asset information such as the image caption, hashtags used, and the username.

It is worth noting though that the images pulled via hashtags from Instagram into your Workflow are now displayed with an anonymous username (instead of the corresponding one), as discussed in the article: Assets Pulled from Instagram Are Displayed with an Anonymous UsernameTwitter images would still show the usernames.

The image below shows a sample Photo Stack Display:
