Bulk Save Workaround

At this time photos must be downloaded individually, not in batches. That said, there is an easy way to hunt down these types of activities to download them much faster. To do this, select your child's profile, then select Feed. From there, you can filter by Photos, and right-click to download each one.


Share to Social Media

In the brightwheel app, student contacts that have been added as a Parent or Family contact type can share photos that the school has posted of the child. Share photos on social media directly from the app or send them via email or text message. All it takes is a tap of a button!

  1. Scroll to the photo that you'd like to share
  2. Tap the Save/Share icon on the top-right on your iOS device (tap on the image to see the Share and Save icons at the bottom on Android)
  3. Select how/where you'd like to share the photo and do so as usual

Please Note: This option is only available on Apple devices at this time. Android users can download the image to share on social media.
