    Q: How do I group my artworks into Collections?
    How do I group my artworks into different categories (we call them collections)?

    A: Many artists wish to organize their works into distinct groups such as 'wildlife' and 'figurative' or 'New Works' and 'Sold Works.' How can this be accomplished on a website with FineArtStudioOnline.com? It is easy with 'Collections!' You can create an unlimited number of collections in which to group your artwork. This tutorial explains how to create the collections, how to place artwork into each collection, and how to display the collections on your website.

    [NOTE: When you decide to use collections, ALL work needs to be assigned to a collection in order for collections to function properly and have all artwork show on your website.]

    ----------------------
    A. Set Up Your Collections
    ----------------------

    1. Login to your control panel
    2. Click Artwork icon
    3. Click 'Add/Edit Collections'
    4. Click 'Add a New Collection'
    5. In 'CollectionName' field, type in the name of this collection (ie Landscapes, Wildlife, etc).
    6. In the 'CollectionDescription' field, type in a short paragraph to describe the collection. This is NOT mandatory. This can be left blank.
    7. For 'CollectionPicture' option, select a picture to associate with the collection.
    8. Click Add and Save Now

    Repeat steps 4-8 for each collection you wish to add.

    ----------------------
    B. Assign artwork to a collection
    ----------------------

    1. Login to your control panel, click on Artwork icon
    2. Click 'Edit' to the right of the artwork
    3. For the field titled 'Collection', use the drop down arrow to select the correct collection from the list.
    4. Click Save Changes
    5. Repeat for each artwork.

    ----------------------
    C. Display the collections on your website's art work portfolio
    ----------------------

    1. Login to your control panel, click on Artwork icon
    2. Click 'Edit the Works Display'
    3. In the field titled 'Default Portfolio Page', change from 'Default' to 'Collections'
    (This will group your portfolio into your collections)
    (Selecting 'default' displays ALL of your artwork together)
    4. Click 'Save Changes'

    Note - you can change the order in which the collections display in your artwork portfolio by clicking on 'My Artwork Portfolio', clicking 'Add/Edit Collections' and then clicking 'Change the Collections Display Order.'

    ----------------------
    D. Display individual collections as categories on your navigation bar
    ----------------------

    1. Login to your control panel, click 'Edit Navigation Bar'

    2. Pick one of the categories (1-12) and drop down the box. You will see your collections toward the end of the list in the drop down box. Select the one you wish to display on your navigation bar.
    3. Click 'Submit'
