Article summary

To see all the methods for uploading images to projects, go to Upload Images.

You can upload photos from your phone into a project in LandingLens. You can either select existing photos, or take new ones. 

To upload photos, LandingLens generates a QR code that is unique to the project. You then scan the QR code to open the LandingLens app in your phone browser. From there, you can take a photo or select one from your phone. The app uploads the selected photos directly to your project.

You can also share the QR code with your colleagues, so that you can all collaborate on uploading images.

For security reasons, each QR code expires in 24 hours. After that, you can generate a new one. You can also deactivate a QR code at any time.

Deactivate a QR Code

You can deactivate the QR code for uploading images at any time by clicking Turn It Off on the QR code pop-up window. When the QR code is deactivated, no one with the QR code can use it to upload images to your project.

Deactivate the QR Code

Deactivating the QR code can be useful in multiple situations. For example, you can deactivate it if you have a time-bound project, and don't want to add more data after the end of the project.

To reactivate a QR code, simply follow the procedure in Upload Images from Your Phone to a Project.

Expired QR Code

A QR code expires 24 hours after it's generated. To create a new one, click the Refresh icon or Get New QR Code.
