Our Snapshot feature is a convenient, flexible tool that allows you to take and share virtual photographs from within the Breakroom viewer itself. Whether you need to capture a virtual moment for use in your company's real world marketing materials, or just want to post a selfie of your avatar on social media, Breakroom makes it easy.
The documentation below is designed to serve as a basic overview of the Snapshot tool. You'll learn how to take, edit, and share photographs, as well as how to collect and display your favorite images within your user profile.
To open the Snapshot window, simply click on the "Snapshot" button in your bottom toolbar. You can also hit Ctrl + ` on your keyboard.
When the Snapshot window is open, it will replace much of the existing UI on your screen. You will see the main Snapshot toolbar centered at the bottom of your screen, and a button in the top right corner that allows you to exit the Snapshot window.
The Snapshot toolbar contains several different tools that allow you to focus your camera, strike a pose, and edit and embellish the photo itself. In the tables below, we'll locate and review each of these functions.

Click the "Upload" button to finalize your choices and complete the photo sharing process. You can also click the "Make Profile Pic" button, which, in addition to finalizing your choices, will showcase your photo in the top header of your user profile. "Retake photo" lets you exit the save menu and start fresh.
After you've saved your photo, you'll be given the option to share the same photo on social media. Click on the relevant button to post your photo on Facebook, Twitter, or LinkedIn.
If you choose to upload a snapshot to your photo library, it will appear under the "Photos" tab in your user profile. This tab and any photos posted on it are visible to the general public. Other users can access your profile, click on your shared photos to enlarge them, and leave comments on them.
To delete a comment another user has left on one of your photos, just follow these steps.

To delete a photo from your library entirely, click on the photo you want to delete. Then click on the trash can icon in the bottom left corner of the user profile window. If you want to delete multiple photos at once, you can check the box inside each photo before clicking the trash can icon.
