Modes
A good painting to me has always been like a friend. It keeps me company, comforts and inspires.

Because PortraitBoard™ is an intimate part of your home or workplace, we built it to adapt to your needs and environment. We call these modes.

This is the default view. It begins with your images and we layer over real-time information that you choose to display.

Data is updated throughout the day.

Notifications are also layered on and can be dismissed at anytime,

Pretty self-explanatory - this mode displays only the background image for unaltered enjoyment.

Images scroll throughout the day. The default is once per hour; however, you can change it to what suits you best.

Did you notice those left and right arrows halfway down? Click on those to either advance to the next image or back to the previous one.

For those times when you want to "dim the lights", Dark Mode is there for you.

By removing the background image and dimming the content, you can still stay informed without straining your eyes.

All content is still present and notifications will display as normal.

Floating content is when you want to temporarily bring content or a control panel onto the screen.

Content can be dragged with your finger to position anywhere on the screen.

When you are done with it, just click the close button.

Floating content can come in handy. For example, if one wanted to enlarge one of your camera streams, you would just touch the camera image and it would automatically open a large image in a floating tab.

The example here is actually showing an Instagram feed. The calendar has been hidden.

Quiet Mode may look a lot like Night Mode, but with one big difference: instead of your content, we basically turn PortraitBoard™ into one big wall clock. (It doesn't have to be a clock - it can be whatever you choose.)

Sometimes you might just want to "quiet" the display for personal downtime (or that romantic moment, perhaps!)

Quiet Mode allows PortraitBoard™ to add a personal touch to the ambiance without the need to draw any attention to it.

Overlay Mode is when you want to take over the full screen with your own custom content.

In this example, we are displaying real-time traffic information. (Very handy to check just prior to leaving the house.)

Fullscreen mode is accessed usually through a menu option or by clicking content from the main screen.

You can always return to the home screen by clicking the exit button.

Okay, so a screenshot may not be totally necessary here since Standby Mode means the screen is off; however, there are a few things to know about standby mode:
Stacks Image 157624
Just touch the screen to resume
Content is still active - just not seen
The screen is completely dark - no backlight is present
PortraitBoard™ can be put into Standby Mode through a simple click from the menu at anytime

PortraitBoard™ powers on when you want and turns off at the times you set.

There are no buttons to press -PortraitBoard™ comes on and shuts down everyday according to your preferences.

There is even a nice feature we call Vacation Mode, which allows you to set PortraitBoard™ to automatically go into Standby when you are on vacation or away from the office.
