To create a collection, you’ll need to have some work in your portfolio. If you haven’t already, check out our Uploading Work article.
You can have 30 collections per profile and each collection can hold 100 images.
- Head to your Manage Portfolio page by clicking on your avatar in the top right corner and hitting ‘Manage Portfolio’.
- Once on this page, select the works you want to put in a Collection. You can do so by marking the checkbox on each of the works you want to add.
- From here, a new set of buttons will appear near the top. Click on the ‘Collections’ drop-down menu.
- In the textbox, type in the name of your new collection.
- Click the plus sign to create the collection.
- You’ll see that the collection name appears in the drop-down menu. To include the designs you picked, select the new collection and hit ‘Add’.
|Keep in mind you can only add designs that are set to public. Private designs cannot be added to collections.|
From the Manage Portfolio page, click on the ‘Collections’ button at the top. This is where all the tools for managing collections are located.
- To edit a collection, click the cogwheel on the corner of that Collection.
- Hit ‘Edit’. This will take you to your Manage Collection page.

- Default View: You can control the way your images are organized in your collection. The default is set to Custom, giving you free rein to sort work as you see fit.
