I keep seeing members uploading their albums (portfolios) to the main page -- how do I do that?

Good morning, Georgette! When a member creates a new portfolio (album), it appears in the "Latest Activity" section on the home page.

To move an image to an existing portfolio:

  1. If the portfolio already exists, click on the portfolio
  2. Click on "Options" in the upper right
  3. Click on "Edit Portfolio"
  4. Scroll down a little and you'll see 2 boxes. The box on the left contains thumbnails of all the art you've uploaded. The box on the right contains thumbnails of the art in that specific portfolio.
  5. Find the image you want to move in the box on the left (click "Older Artwork" if you need to) and when you find the image, click on it and drag it into the box on the right.
  6. When you are done, click the orange "Save" button at the bottom. This is important or else the changes won't take effect.
  7. (The artwork will show in the Latest Activity section but will not be shown as a "portfolio", it will just appear as if you added new art.)

To create a new portfolio to add a posted image:

  1. Go to your profile page and click on "Portfolios"
  2. Click "+Add" in the upper right
  3. Fill in the portfolio title and description
  4. Click on an image that you want to use as the portfolio cover and drag it to the box that says "Drag portfolio cover here"
  5. To add images to the portfolio, follow the steps for 5 and 6 as described above.
  6. (The artwork will show in the Latest Activity as "So-and-So posted an album" with a thumbnail of the cover image).

* When you upload new art, you also have the option to add it to a portfolio.

Hope this helps, and let us know if you have any more questions!
