To Manage Bibs (i.e., remove bib tags for specific numbers or ranges)

Note: You will need to update bib management for each location in use. For more information please take a look at our Photo Bib Management blog post: https://runsignup.wordpress.com/2016/08/23/photo-bib-management/
To Add Photos nearby:
Dashboard -> Photos -> Location -> Setup Finish Line Photos
Note: You have to have results in RunSignup for this. What this does is automatically aligns the finish time with the time that is put onto each photo.
1. You will need to click the link to Set Up Finish Line Photos
2. Then you will want to select your event you would like.
3. Lastly, you will need to click the link to Process Photos. Then a Near You Finish on a participant’s photos page.
To Add or Remove Bib Tags by Individual Photo:
Dashboard -> Photos -> View -> Advanced Mode
Note: You can edit bib tags from either view; Advanced Mode is just easier
To switch over to the Advanced Mode there is a link in the top right corner.
Then you will need to select the image you would like to edit the bib tags on. The tags can be deleted by clicking the “X” next to the bib number. To add tags, you will just need to type the bib number you want to add.
To Add or Remove a Race or Sponsor Logo: Clear Photos and Watermarks
Dashboard -> Photos -> Setup
Simply choose to apply a sponsor watermark in either the lower left or right corners of your race photos as shown on the right.
Clear Photos and Watermarks
This is done a per photo location basis (this allows for multiple sponsors for different photo locations like the halfway point and the finish line).
To View Photos (Runner View):
Race Website -> Photos
Or, if you are using RunSignUp Results...
Race Website -> Results -> Search for Runner -> View Photos
And a few best practices...
* To limit errors in Google Vision tagging, use 4-digit bib numbers (1000+), and exclude tagging of numbers under 1,000
* When uploading Finish Line photos from multiple cameras, keep them in separate sets so that the timestamps are consistent throughout the set
