How to Organize Your Artwork Into Collections

Now that you’ve uploaded several of your artwork images to FASO, you may want to organize them into different collections.  Read on for step by step instructions for organizing your artwork into collections.


1.  Log into your FASO account.

2.  This will bring you to the FASO Control Panel screen, from which you manage everything on your FASO website. The Control Panel is made up of different sections, including the Header Menu, Main Menu, and Side Menu.


3.  Click on the “Artwork” button in the FASO Header Menu.


4.  This will bring you to your FASO Artwork Portfolio, which will have all your uploaded artwork images displayed. Click on the “Add/Edit Collections” link.


5.  This will bring you to the Collections page. Click on the Add New button.


6.  This will bring you to the Add New Collection page. Click on the Collection Name textbox and enter a name for your new collection.


7.  Click on the Description textbox and enter a description for your new collection.


8.  Click on the Collection Picture dropdown field and select an artwork image to associate with this collection. This artwork image will appear as a thumbnail image on your Works page and serve as a visual example of the artwork in this collection.


9.  Click on the Add and Save Now button.


10.  This will bring you back to the Collections page. Click on the Artwork icon in the FASO Main Menu.


11.  This will bring you to the FASO Artwork page. Click on “Edit” link for any one of the artworks listed on this page.


12.  This will bring you to the Edit Artwork page. Click on the Collections dropdown field and select the collection that you just created.


13.  Click on the Save Changes button at the bottom of the page.


14.  This will return you to the Artworks page. Note that the artwork that you just edited is now associated with your new collection. Click on the Preview Icon in the FASO Main Menu. A preview of your website will appear in a new tab in your browser.


15.  Click on the Works (Or Portfolio - depending on what you named it) Menu Item on your website’s Main Menu.


16.  This will bring you to the Works page of your FASO website. Note how the new collection that you just created appears on your Works page along with the thumbnail image that you selected for your collection.


Please note that once you've created a collection, until you assign images to that collection, if you try to view it on your site, it'll return an error. Once an image is assigned, the error will disappear.

Congratulations! You’ve just learned how to create a collection in FASO and are on your way to organize your artwork for your collectors to enjoy.  Remember that if you have any questions about organizing your artwork into collections, please feel to reach out to our support team.  We are here to help you make the most of your FASO website.

Are you kidding? I couldn't make it halfway through the process.

Thanks Carrie,
The instructions were clear and simple to follow. It was exactly what I did when I made my collections. Perhaps you could add the instructions for how to change or add new items to the details when you click on Edit in your Artwork/collections, like how to add another type of substrate or style.
Of course I am very computer literate (I'm a geek artist) so it was nice to see someone went to the trouble of capturing screen shots and adding dialogue boxes with instructions in them.

Thank you so much!

I'll add your thoughts about editing the individual pieces of information for an artwork to my list of future topics.

I would like to add the same artwork to more than one collection. I think this would be more convenient for collectors and seems to be a standard on websites everywhere. How do you do this? Thanks

At this time, there's not a way to assign an image to more than one collection.

The developers are aware of a need for this and have it on their list, but I do not know when this option will be made available.

I can't find instructions about how to change the name of a collection. Is this action possible without deleting the name and building the collection again.
