INTRODUCTION
------------

This module integrates with Slack, and imports images posted to a specified
Slack channel into Drupal as File entities.

A new file type called 'Slack Image' and a new display called 'Slack Image
Display' will be added.

Images get uploaded to Drupal during a Drupal cron job or with
`drush import-slack-images` command.  Once images are uploaded you can approve
or delete them at: admin/config/services/slack_to_drupal/approve.

Slack Images will be available every place File Entities were available before.

Check out this great example from Zoomdata.com:
http://www.zoomdata.com/careers/#zoomagram

Employees of Zoomdata can upload images to a specific channel in the company's
Slack highlighting events, acheivements and general awesomeness.  Once approved
we display the images using the Views, Masonry Views, Colorbox, and GD infinite
scroll plugin modules.
