1. Batch Processing Batch Processing is the fastest way to queue large and varied quantities of Santa Packs orders. Images will appear in a grid format and the pack options can be selected for each image. The free 6x4” print will be set to 1 as a default. The free print will be available as a separate output order separate from the packs. There is no editing function as part of the batch processing module.

For each image, scroll through all the product options and edit, zoom and crop as required. The preview of the final product will be displayed to ensure the output is as expected.

The Individual Items Button allows you to order individual print products as required based on customer requests. Any products that are available as part of the packs including the prints and calendars can be selected and edited as required.
