Creating and Editing a Collection

If you have view permissions for a place, you can organize the place's images into collections to share with other place members. You can also select an existing collection and change the filters and sorting.

You need to add images to a place and tag or categorize them before you can create a collection. Collections can be created by filtering by tags or categories. Collections use image tags, categories, and author.
Tip: It's a good idea to tag and categorize your images when you add them so they can be used in collections.

To create a new collection, add images by selecting Images > + Add images. You should see a Filter by Tag, Category or Author field.

To edit an existing collection, select that collection from the Collections library at the top of the page first.

  1. Once you see a few images in the Images page, then click in the Filter by Tag, Category or Author area.

  2. From the menu, you'll need to filter all of the existing images before creating your collection. Select tags, category, and/or author(s) until you've added filters that produce the set of images you want.

    Note: Each collection can have only one category and one author. If you select a new category or author, it will replace the current one.
  3. Remove any existing filters that you don't want.

  4. Collections are sorted by Date uploaded (newest first) by default. If you want, you can select a different sort order from the Sort by drop-down menu.

Share your collection with other community members!

If you are a place owner, you can save your new collection, too.
Tip: If you don't have permission to save a collection, share the collection in a message to yourself to view it later.
