To import images captured by drone:
1. Click Images to select several images or click Import folder to import a complete folder at once.
2. Select the images or folder and click Open.
3. In PIX4Dfields, projects with RGB, multispectral or thermal images can be created.
4. The Processing options menu appears. To find out more information about these settings please go Processing options. After selecting the desired Processing options, click Apply
5. Click Import images or Import folder in case more images need to be added.

To process the images and create an orthomosaic:
1. To begin the process click Start processing.
2. The import and image stitching processes begin, the layer will read Orthomosaic (processing...).
3. The progress bar will display the messages "Importing images...", "Bundle adjustment...", and "Stitching images..." and the progress percentage showing the current process.
4. (optional) Click the STOP PROCESSING icon at the bottom right corner to stop the stitching images process.
