Collections and Carousels... how to edit the settings.

I just bmailed a friend [who I won’t name and shame!!] who had asked for help in changing settings in his Collections (so that they will show up as Carousels under his photos).

I thought this might be of benefit to others (and he agreed), so I’m including it here:

How to create and re-order your Collections.

Go to your Profile Page.
Click on your “Portfolio” tab (second tab from the left, under your Avatar).
You’ll see a list of your collections on the left of the page. From here you can re-order the collections (Drag and drop) or add new ones (click “New Collection” at the bottom of the list).

How to Delete a Collection

Go to your Profile Page.
Click on your “Portfolio” tab (second tab from the left, under your Avatar).
Click on the Collection you want to delete. Then look at the top right of the page where it has the word “Edit” in red. Click on the arrow down and the option “Delete Collection” will show up. Click that.

How to Change the Order of Works within the Collection (and therefore, the Carousel)

To change the order of works that show up in your Carousel, you have to choose the Default order of your Collections.

Go to your “Profile” page.
As you hover over each collection “cover”, a symbol of a wheel/cog/gear will appear. Click on that and choose the default view – you have 4 options. “Top Selling”, “All time Popular”, “Recent” and “Custom”. If you choose any of the first 3 options, they’ll show up in your carousel in that order.

If you want to choose the order yourself, select “Custom”. Then once you’ve done that, you have to put them in the order you want them to show up in. To do that you need to go back to the Portfolio View (Click “Portfolio” under your Avatar) and then click on the Collection you want to put in order.

Within the collection, try to drag and drop stuff around. If it’s in “Custom” view, it’ll “stick”. If not, it’ll ask whether you want to go to Custom View so do that. Your newest works always show up at the bottom of the page (presumably so it doesn’t muck up the order you set before). If you want your most recent works to show up first, you’ll need to drag them all the way to the top of the page. MAKE SURE YOU SAVE THE ORDER at the bottom of the page when you’re done.

How to remove a photo/artwork you accidentally put in the wrong Collection.

Go to your Profile Page.
Click on your “Portfolio” tab (second tab from the left, under your Avatar).
Click on the Collection that has the errant image in it.
Find the misplaced image and drag it to the very bottom of the page. A red bar will appear with “Remove” inside it and the thumbnail of your photo. Over on the right you will see a button that says “Remove 1 work and save order.” Click on the button.
If you moved it there accidentally, there’s also a small red “Cancel” just above the bar on the right. Just click “Cancel” and it will go back to where it was before.

Hope that’s helpful!

Mieke.
