After you upload your artwork, you will need to turn ON the works to show in the Portfolio. You cannot upload artwork or option the artwork to show in your portfolio from the Edit Portfolio page. Follow these steps to add artwork to your portfolio:
There are two versions of your Portfolio: Edit Mode & Live.
Edit Mode. You are able to work on your Portfolio (Edit Mode) in private. You have an Edit Panel that overlays the bottom of your portfolio, giving you the ability to modify your portfolio’s presentation & options. As you are editing your portfolio, it is automatically saving. There is no Save Button!
Live Mode. Once you are done editing and ready to make your portfolio live, you can click on ‘Publish’ to make your Portfolio Live. You can always edit your portfolio and publish to live at any time and as many times as you want. The only public access is to your Live portfolio which will be at your ‘username’.myfolio.com.
Additionally, you have the ability to Revert your Portfolio. When you revert, you take your Live Portfolio to your Edit Portfolio stage, essentially going back 1 version of your portfolio. In case you are editing your Portfolio and at some point decide that your original Live Portfolio better suits your needs, you can use the Revert button. Any time you Publish or Revert, your Portfolios will be in sync.
Note: In your settings page, you can Turn On or Off your (live) portfolio at any time.
There are many powerful tools & features that give you a range of control over your portfolios presentation and options. Start off by going to Edit Portfolio. You will find at the bottom of your portfolio the Edit Panel; an overlay editor that controls your Portfolio’s settings. As you are editing your portfolio, it is automatically saving your changes. There is no ‘save’ button. You can edit your portfolio, leave the site, and come back again at any time & continue editing your portfolio.
The Edit Panel contains the following tools to manage your Portfolio:
Layout There are 6 layout options to choose from. 3 of them are 1 column, and the other 3 are 2 columns. Each layout (except for 2) will give the user the ability to switch from seeing large posters of your artwork and thumbnails. When Thumbnails are selected, all of your artwork (in thumbnails) are displayed in the same page, letting a visitor see an overall view of your artwork and galleries:
Background – You can choose any background color through our color picker. In addition, you can choose to upload a background and position/tile it in several formats. You can also choose for the background image to be static or to move when a visitor scrolls down your page.
Page Colors – Choose the Page, Text & Link colors. Additionally, there are pre-selected color combinations that you can choose from.
Art Options – There are a few additional options for portfolio artwork:
Personal Information – Provide any (optional) information about you & your works. If you’ve chosen a 1 column layout, all of your personal information would be provided in the top of your portfolio, followed by your artwork (if you’ve selected the 1 column layout, its best to provide less information than if you’ve chosen a 2 column layout). In a 2 column layout, your information will show in the right column.
Custom HTML – Add your own custom html code such as google analytics, widgets.com apps, or any other items. You have 3 seperate custom html boxes that you can put your code into and can sort these items in your portfolio as well.
