Easy to create and edit in a few simple steps from your Picfair account, the best way to organize your images is to place them into albums.
Albums are fantastic for showcasing images in a specific order, as themed collections and for displaying a curated collection of images on your Store’s homepage.
How to create albums
To showcase albums in your Store, you first need to create them. You can do this directly from your Picfair Profile Page.
To add an image to an album go to your profile page and select the image by hovering over it with your mouse and selecting the ‘+’ icon, you can repeat this process to select several images:
Once you have selected the images you would like to add to an album, go to Actions > Add to Album.
From here a new window will appear. In the text box Create a New Album you can make an album by inputting a name for your new album and then clicking Save to Album:
Your images will now be saved in the new album, and you can view and edit this album by going to your Albums dashboard:
How to edit your albums
You can edit and organise the albums you have created from your Albums dashboard which can be accessed from your profile page under View Albums or from the drop-down menu when clicking on your username and selecting Albums'
To change the order of albums as they appear on the albums page and also on your Store, click on Change Order and drag and drop albums to the order you prefer.
To change the order of images in the album, click into the album and drag and drop images using the arrow icon, visible when hovering over the image, to place images in the desired order.
When hovering over any image, you can also choose to make this the header image of your album by selecting Make Header. A header image is an image that is displayed at the front of your album along with the album title. For each album, we recommend you use your best image for your header image - as this will be the first image viewers see before clicking through to the album!
To delete images in your album, select images using the ‘+’ icon when hovering over an image, go to Actions and click on Remove Selection from Album.
To delete an entire album, click on the album and go to Actions > Delete Album.
How to move images between albums
In order to move images from one album to another, first navigate to the album with the images you would like to move, and select them by using the orange plus (+) symbol in the top right-hand corner of each image thumbnail (you'll see an orange outline around all the images you've selected). Once you've selected the images, click the blue Actions button just above the images select Add images to album which will bring up a pop-up of your album options:
You'll then need to go back to the original album to remove these images. Repeat the process of selecting images but this time, select Remove images from album to delete them from that album. Only if you select an image and click ‘Delete’ will the image be removed from your whole profile:
How to display images and albums on your Store
The way images and albums are displayed on your Store can be configured under the Content & Organisation section of your Store dashboard with different display options. You can choose more than one option for your Store:
Here you can choose to display all the albums you have created on your Store. Note: if you wish to display an edited selection of images only with albums, this will turn off the in-Store search functionality.
Here you can set one of your albums to be a ‘Featured Album’, which will have its own dedicated link on your Store menu. This is ideal for displaying a curated selection of images on your Store homepage, so your images will appear exactly how you want them to look, and you can select either your 'Albums' or your 'Featured Album' to appear on your homepage. Here's an example of a featured album displayed on the homepage of a Picfair Store:
