Where to find Final Selection
To perform Final Selection in Gamma you must browse to the top menu "Task" and click on the submenu "Final Selection".
Here you will find a kanban view with 3 columns "To do", "Doing" and "Done".
In "To do" you can pick and start the tasks you want to work on and they will move to "doing" once they are started.
Only Account Owner and Admin users are able to release the assigned tasks.
Final Selection on a generic pre-selection
If the workflow is asking the photographer to upload a generic suite of images you will as an Art Director have to drag the final images to the position in the Style Guide provided for the product. If the photography team has added star ratings to the images, you can use these to narrow the range of images displayed in the film-strip view.
You can view and rate the images and drag them to the right position to ensure that everything that is needed is sent to Post-Production.
When you have filled in all the images required for the style guide you can hit the "Continue" button in the top right corner and move on to the next task.
Final Selection on pre-selection by position
If the workflow is asking the photographer to upload a suite of images by each position in the Style Guide you will as an Art Director perform the final selection by each position.
You can view the image in full screen by using the spacebar, hit 'S' on your keyboard to select until you have the correct suit of images for all positions - once you have that you can click the "Continue" button in the top right corner.

If you apply star ratings / select images for positions, Creative Force will store this data for 7 days.
How to add instructions and markings
Creative Force allows you to leave notes and markings on the images for the Post-Production team. Please note that you won't be able to add instruction notes if your workflow doesn't involve a post-production step.
First, you need to select an image or multiple images by holding Ctrl or Cmd. Next, you can either hold "ALT + I" or right-click on the image or click the three-dot menu and select "Mark for instructions". When you have marked all the required images, you can select "Continue".
If you have a post-production step after Final Selection, when you click "Continue", you will be prompted to the mark-up screen to leave your instruction similarly when you click 'Reject'.
After completing the instructions, click "Continue" and you are done.
