Your ix2 has multiple ways to manage your pictures.
Your ix2 can:
Stream pictures that are in Shares with media sharing enabled
Display pictures on the Home Page in a slideshow
Automatically resize pictures
Transfer pictures from your digital camera
Upload pictures to social media sites like Flickr or Facebook
The ix2has a built-in media server that, when turned on, can scan for pictures in specific folders that have
media sharing enabled. Any pictures contained in these specific folders will then be accessible to any user
on your network with a media player. For information on enabling a folder as a media folder, refer to
on page 24.
Scanning for Pictures
The Media Server automatically scans for media content on a regular basis. However, you can click Scan
now at any time to force the media server to perform an immediate scan for pictures. This is especially
useful after you have created new folders with media sharing enabled and copied a large amount of media
content to them.
Creating a Slideshow on the Device Home Page
Your ix2 can display a slideshow on its home page.
On the Home Page Settings feature page, check Display slideshows to display picture slideshows from
folders on the ix2. Click Manage slideshows to configure any slideshows you want to display. The
slideshow location can be any folder attached to the ix2, including a USB drive or DFS location.
Automatically Resizing Your Photos
A Photo Resize Active Folder automatically changes the size of photos in that Share to a set size. You
can choose to keep the original photos added to this Share, while a resized copy is created. The resized
photos are saved to a folder on the Share named by the photo size you choose, such as 800x600. To
configure a Share as a Photo Resize Active Folder, access Shares from the ix2 Management Console,
select a Share, and expand the Active Folders section to enable and configure it.
Configuring a Photo Resize Active Folder
From the ix2 Management Console, click Shares.
Select a Share to use as a Photo Resize Active Folder, and click to expand the Active Folder
on page 24 for more information on managing Shares and Active Folders.
