Very cool, RB!! Thanks!

I just uploaded a new work, and after it loaded, I was suprised to notice a format I hadn’t seen before… It looks a lot more like a shopfront!

It shows your artwork (with a larger-than-ever-before preview if you click on it!) and then underneath, instead of the description and comments, there is a row of large thumbnail views of your portfolio plus rows of thumbnails showing any collections that your artwork is in. (The thumbnail images show up according to whatever you’ve chosen as the default order, which you can access via your profile page. Hover over the ‘cover’ of each collection and you’ll see a little cog/gear show up. If you want to fully customise the order, choose “Custom”, then go into the collection and drag-and-reorder your images).

You can also choose the Default order of your Portfolio “Carousel” by clicking on your Portfolio tab (up the top of the page) and then over on the top right, clicking on the red “Edit” arrow which gives you the option of clicking on “Display Settings”. You can choose from “Recent,” “All Time Popular” and “Top Selling.”

And it hides the comments and description… making it more about the image itself (which I know others might not like so much, but I think it’s great!!).

Have a look for yourself… Click on any of your works, and look at the address bar. Make sure it ends with the title of your work. You should see the rows of thumbails.

If not, check the address bar, and if there’s anything after the title (eg “#comment-52656689”) delete that. If you can still see comments, then look just underneath your artwork, over to the right – see the three options?
- More Work
- Description
- Comments

Click on “More Work”.

What do you think? Thumbs up from me, RB!!!

    I can see the people who put a lot of effort into their descriptions are going to be shitty again…LOL

  • I know. But hey, you can never please everyone. Besides, I like it!!!
    =D
    A lot less words, a lot more colour!!! :) :) :)

    My first thought was that I could not comment anymore,yes I agree it looks nicer now

  • I was thinking that way too, Hans – every time there is a change, it does become a lot more complicated and harder to find things. It’s becoming so customise-able that I wonder if any newbies will ever be able to find anything… but overall, I like it!

  • I think it’s great for the buyers, but more complicated for the artists.

    Thats nice, good job RB!
    Although for “More work” I preffer random collection rather that top selling, so it change all the time and brings up the long time burried collection :)

  • I think you can change that.. let me check…

    – Mieke Boynton

  • Hmmm… unless I’m missing something, you can’t change the order of the portfolio thumbnails (they seem to be permanently stuck on “all time popular”, but with your collections, it shows up according to your custom order, which you can change from within the collections (by dragging images around).

    – Mieke Boynton

  • Nope! I’m wrong. You need to select which is the default view on your Profile Page. If you choose the default view as “Custom”, the thumbnails will show up in your custom order. If you select “Recent” as the default view on your Profile page, they’ll show up in that order. Does that make sense?

    Okay, another change, one with both pros and cons, but has some definite merits – if only I could work out the how to get more than all the portfolio under the ‘other works’ – how do you ‘custom’ each one for it to appear?

  • On your Activity Feed page, over on the left, underneath the heading “Portfolio” there’s an option “Public Portfolio and Collections”. Click on that. It will take you to your collections. Click on the one you want to re-order. Try dragging the images around. If it comes up with a red message saying you need to be in Custom View to re-order, go to Custom View. Reorder your photos. Save. All done!

    yes def like it better… looks much cleaner and presented so much better.. like it too that they have seperated everything.. when I click on description it gives me the full description without scrolling, and their profile to the left.. and all the comments and banners are now on their own comments page… they snuck this one in.. but it all thumbs up from me :-)

  • :) :) I’m liking it more and more!! :) :)

    Thanks Mieke
    I guess thats fine now.
    And at least we have a big preview. The cons is more appealing to be copied :)

  • I know. But no different to any other website really…

    Its now much easier to view an artists work via the films strips.. I don’t like the little advert strips that pop up but!

  • Advert strips??
