Crimson’s Photo Inbox allows you to send files via email from a computer or mobile device straight into your Crimson database so that you can easily add them to your People records later.
Sending Files to your Photo Inbox
To add a file to your Photo Inbox, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org from the email address you have linked to your Crimson account. You should receive a confirmation email from CMDI confirming the photo was received for processing. To add another email address, contact Crimson Customer Support: CrimsonSupport@cmdi.com. You may attach a photo to the email. The subject line of the email will appear as the file’s name within your Photo Inbox.

You can access your Photo Inbox by clicking on the link, which is located on the top right-hand side of your Crimson dashboard.
Once you have opened the Photo Inbox, you can view your photos either in Photo View or List View and you have several action options for the photo file.
