Learn how to use filters, bursts, and bulk editing features available in Wildlife Insights to speed up data processing.
Images are sorted by Date taken by default. You can also sort images by the Upload date or Last Modified (the latter is only available in the Catalogued tab).
To change the sort by ascending or descending date, click on the green arrow next to the sort options text.

Filters make it easy to focus on a smaller subset of images, whether by deployment, identification or blanks. You can filter images with these options:
All images reviewed by artificial intelligence will have a gold marker in the top right hand corner of the image.
To review an image, click on the thumbnail preview. A screen will open displaying a larger preview of the image. To the right of the image, you’ll see:
Approving and editing identifications
Adjust the brightness, contrast or saturation of an image
If your images are too dark, too light, or anything in between, you can use the Edit Photo tools to get a clearer picture of what’s in an image. To use these tools:
Favorite, or Highlight an image
When you’re viewing an image in the large preview mode, you can easily flag the image as a favorite so you can quickly access it later! In the identification panel you’ll see a Star icon above the word Highlight. Click on the icon or text to highlight the image for easy access later.
Note: all Highlighted images will be available publicly on the Discover page.
Quickly select multiple images in the thumbnail view by using these common shortcuts:
Each image in your selection will display a white circle in the top left hand corner of the image. Once images are selected in thumbnail view, a green bar will appear at the bottom of the screen. From this green bar you can:
In many instances, groups of images are taken within a short time frame from one another. These sets of images could likely include the same sets of animals or objects. In this case, assigning the same identification to the entire set of images (called bursts in Wildlife Insights) at once could save a lot of time!
You can view images in Burst mode by entering a time interval in the Burst field. Enter any number of seconds from 0-600. The number of seconds refers to the time between an image and a subsequent image. For example, if a Burst selection of 30 seconds is entered, all images that are taken within 30 seconds of each other will be grouped together.
The number of images within a Burst will be displayed in a red circle in the top right hand corner of an image.
Click on a burst group to view the images within that burst. A lightbox will open and display the first image within the burst. You can toggle through the burst by clicking on the arrows at the bottom of the screen. The right hand side of the lightbox will show a summary of all of the identifications (e.g., 3 capybaras, 1 blank). If you select an identification or edit the identification, the selection/edit will be applied to all images in the burst.
Note: If you Highlight an image, the highlight will apply to only the image currently viewed.
