To add an image to one of your existing collections: 

Step 1 - Log in to the site. Mouseover a thumbnail image of the artwork you’d like to add to a collection and click the Add to Collection button (the Plus icon) -or- from the artwork’s page, click Add to Collection to the right of the main image.

This will open the Add to a Collection pop-up. Select the collection you’d like to add artwork to from the list, or use the search box to search your collections by keyword and category, selected from the drop-down menu (either Date Modified, Title, or Date Created).

 

 

To edit the name/description of one of your existing collections:

Step 1 -  Log in to the site. From the main menu, hover over your name on the right of the top navigation menu and select Artworks

Step 2 - From your artworks page, select the Collections tab. Then, select the collection containing the image you’d like to remove. On the left side of the page beneath your profile image and above the collection details (see image below) are buttons allowing you to Edit, Reorder, or Delete the collection.

Step 3 - Click Edit to enter the Edit Collection page. On the left side of the page, edit the details (i.e. the title, description, and type) of your collection. If you’d like to remove images from the collection, click the red “X” on the top right corner of the artwork(s) you’d like to remove.

Step 4 - Once you’re finished editing the collection, click Save.

NOTE: There is no “undo” function once you’ve removed artwork from a collection. If you’d like to re-add artwork you’ve removed from the collection, please search for the artwork and manually add it to the collection again.
