Pond5 artist profiles have a number of all-new features that aim to enhance the artist experience onsite. These features not only enable you to make your profile more aesthetically pleasing, but also easier to navigate. Artists can now set a cover photo, highlight up to five collections on their profiles, and add descriptions. In addition, buyers can now search within an artist’s portfolio, thanks to a new search bar.
Watch the video below and read on to learn how to use each of these new features.
Profile Cover Images
You can now easily update your profile’s cover image. This serves as the background image that sits at the top of your profile (similar to what you might find on Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn). Just hover your mouse over the area where the cover image goes, select “Change Cover Picture” and then upload your image.
Collection Cover Images
Updating the cover image for each of your Collections follows the same process. Simply hover over the top portion where your cover image goes on the collection page, and select “Change Cover Picture,” then upload your image. (Note: make sure that the image you upload is at least 1500 pixels wide.)
Updating Your Collection Descriptions
Collection descriptions are important because they help online search engines find your collections and content. Create and edit descriptions by clicking on the “Edit” link below your title. This will open a new window that will allow you to type in a description.
Search Within Profiles
This feature has been added for ease and functionality, so that buyers can find whatever they need from you, the artists they love. Buyers can now search for specific keywords and media right within your collection.
We built all of these new features to help you better expose your content as a Pond5 artist. We hope you like them, and we look forward to continuing to roll out more updates that empower you to reach your full creative potential.
