Client Ledger

The client ledger is the central starting point for Studio Pro. The top row holds the listing of all clients you've created while the lower area shows a summary of each order for the selected client. The most recent order is shown first. From this screen you can add and edit clients, add orders, and also configure much of the app.

You can enter configuration mode for the app by tapping the button at the top left corner. Once you do the interface will fade out, showing the interface lock, central app help, imperial/metrics units toggle, and global settings on the left. On the right will be some informational views, and in the center will be each of the main configuration sections.

Configuration Sections

Studio Pro's configuration in divided into a number of sections designed to make overall management and setup as quick as possible.

Interface Lock

The interface lock locks out all management portions of the app, such as those related to configuring products, price lists, and so on. The passcode can be any four-character sequence and is required for unlocking the interface.

Central Help

While much of the app contains section-specific help, the central help panel contains the full user manual in addition to the support contact form. If you have bug reports, feature requests, or otherwise need help, please use this form to contact the support line as it provides information on which version of Studio Pro you're using, which model iPad, which iOS version, and can also provide screenshots to help debug any problems.

Units Selection

While most of Studio Pro is locale-agnostic, certain aspects need to know whether you're using imperial (based in inches) or metric (based in centimeters) units to best present the photos. These include paper sizes, mats, finishings, screen calibrations, and room displays.

Global Settings

The global settings panel currently contains two options: the cache controls and the setting of whether or not to allow the iPad to sleep when it's connected to a secondary screen.

Products

Products are the individual sizes and items offered for sale. These can include virtually any type of item, including specifically sized items (e.g., a 16x20), fixed items (e.g., a disc of all photos), or non-tangible items (e.g., a session fee or shipping). All price list entries are made up of a product combined with a finishing type and a price. See the Products help section for more information.

Finishings

Finishings are used to define how a product appears. By default a product is considered a "Print", but finishings for gallery wraps, frames, discs, and other options can be added and configured specifically for your lab's product lineup. See the Finishings help section for more information.

Price Lists

Price lists define the rates used to place any order. Each order has a single price list assigned to it, and from that it determines which products to display in the ordering panel within the viewing mode. See the Price Lists help section for more information.

Collections

Collections define a grouping of products that can all be ordered for a single price. Collections are added to a price list much like products and layouts are. See the Collections help section for more information.

Layouts

A layout defines a grouping of fixed-size openings that you can place photos in. These are most commonly used to preview and order a pre-made print collection or lay out a a pre-made product such as a senior folio. See the Layouts help section for more information.

Rooms

A room is used to preview any number photos or layouts to scale in a photo of the actual room. For example, if your client wants to order something for above the couch in their living room, you can use a room to figure out the sizes or layouts that best fit in that spot. See the Rooms help section for more information.

Slideshows

Slideshows have a variety of settings that can be set to customize playback. The Slideshows panel allows you to configure any number of presets for these settings. See the Slideshows help section for more information.

Financial

The Financial panel is the central point for configuring any tax, invoice, or payment-related customizations for the app. See the Sales Tax, Card Processor, and Invoice Template help sections for more information.

Screens

Studio Pro is capable of displaying photo sizes equal to or smaller than the screen to scale. Screen calibrations define the size and other attributes of the screen that make this possible. See the External Screens help section for more information.
