Choose Camera

Select the camera that is used for snapping faces. You can choose between front and back camera.

Snap Interval

Limits the maximum rate at which photos are captured. After each capture, FaceSnap waits for the selected time until it will capture images again.


Choose the number of images to capture each time a face is detected.

Best of

If activated, FaceSnap will save only the best image of the series and not all images. Blurred images for example are discarded.

Only new faces

If activated, FaceSnap will remember faces and capture them only once. However, if a face leaves and reenters the camera view, it is always considered a new face.

Flash Mode

Select how to use the camera’s flash. You can choose between automatic, always on and always off.

Search Mode

Choose between five search strategies: In ’slow pan‘ mode Galileo will slowly rotate around the pan area. ‚Fast pan‘ will do the same but at faster speed. ‚Step pan‘ rotates step by step and waits for a while between each step. ‚Random‘ positions Galileo randomly in the pan area. In ‚fixed position‘ mode Galileo returns always to the same starting position, when no face is detected.

Positioning Interval

Sets how long Galileo will pause moving after each positioning step.

Tilt Range

Sets the range Galileo will rotate around the tilt axis. The pan range is configured directly with the slider on the main camera view.


Shows ‚Connected‘ when your device is correctly attached to a Galileo platform.
