The Explore Page
The Explore page is the first tab in the Aurasma Studio's central dashboard. It offers thumbnails of Auras and campaigns currently featured, popular, or recently created on the Aurasma platform. This Explore section offers an amazing opportunity to see what others are creating on the platform, follow their content, and also gain exposure for your own Auras internationally!
You will notice that all the thumbnails have list or menu icons on the bottom right - by clicking on these you can get the option either to open the Trigger Image to view the Aura, or to see thumbnails for every Aura in that whole campaign:
Clicking to view the Aura will open up a larger version of the Trigger Image, and you can then view the Aura on your mobile device. The key point here is that you are logged into the Aurasma app with the exact same login credentials you have used to log into Studio - this way your Studio and app accounts will be linked together, and you will automatically be following in app the Auras you have clicked to view in Studio and the Explore area.
All this means your own content can receive similar exposure from inside the Aurasma Studio - all you need to do is make sure you have shared your Auras publically. For more on how to do this, check out this article or video!
The Assets Tab
The Assets section of your account is where your assets are stored: these are the Trigger Images you have uploaded for our technology to recognise, and the digital Overlays you want to launch on a mobile device's screen on those images being recognised. Trigger Images and Overlays are stored under their respective headings: notice the Triggers / Overlays options at the top left of the page in the Assets section. It is also in this section where you can upload new assets - see the 'Create new Trigger / Overlay' button available on the top right...
Under My Auras you will find thumbnails showing all the Auras you have created in your account. Remember, Auras are what we call augmented reality experiences - the link between real world images and objects, and a digital experience on the screen of your mobile device. Under my Auras you have the ability to find Auras to edit, duplicate, or delete, simply by highlighting the relevant Aura and clicking the buttons to the right hand side of the screen. Note the option to create new Auras is always available in the Aurasma Studio as a button in the top-right section of the screen.
