Breakroom image panel
Create opportunities for user interaction by branding your event with engaging signage and imagery. Read on for more information about installing and setting up the Breakroom image panel.

Overview

Breakroom's image panel allows you to upload still images -- including your company logo, informational signage, and event branding or advertising -- and display them almost anywhere in your world. You can also create clickable image panels that will direct users to a website of your choice.
In your inventory, you'll see the video player represented by this icon:
To get started, you'll need to place an image panel in your region by using the Room Editor. Once you've closed the Room Editor, you can then choose the image you want to display and adjust the image panel settings. Finally, you'll return to the Room Editor to resize and move your finished image panels into position.

Image panel administration

The image panel administration menu is only accessible to the object owner and region Administrators. To access it, just click on the image panel and then click the button that says "Open Admin."
When an owner or region Admin clicks on an image panel, the above menu appears.
When lay users click on a web-enabled image panel, they will also see a button marked "Open URL." Clicking this will open the image panel's associated URL in an external browser tab on their own computer.
The administration menu allows you to select the image you want to display and configure the image panel's URL settings.

    The Breakroom image panel will automatically adjust its dimensions to match the aspect ratio of the image displayed on it. As a result, you may find that a finished image panel cuts through the floor of your region, or is otherwise too large or small for its intended purpose. Luckily, the Room Editor allows you to adjust the scale, rotation, and position of the image panel at will.
Best practice tip: To resize an image panel while maintaining the proper aspect ratio, hold down the Shift key while dragging the scale gizmo. This will allow you to make the image panel larger or smaller without distorting the image.
