How to Group your Artwork into Collections (before 11/2018)

To organize your artwork into groups such as Landscape and Figurative or Oil and Watercolor, you can easily set up Collections.

The following info will guide you through the steps on creating collections, assigning artwork to the collections and display the collections on your website.

When you decide to use collections, all work needs to be assigned to a collection in order to be displayed live on your site. A piece that is not assigned to a collection will not show.


  • login to your FASO account Control Panel
  • click Artwork icon (upper row)
  • click Add/Edit Collections
  • click Create Collection

  • type in your collection name
  • Save changes

  • click Add Artwork
  • click on one image to select the image
  • repeat for each additional image
  • click Save when done

NOTE: You can not assign one image to more than one collection. If an image is already assigned to a collection, say Landscapes and you then assign the image to Recent Works, the image will ONLY show in the Recent Works collection.


To remove an image from the collection:

  • click the Minus icon (below image)
  • click Save when done

To select the Cover Image that represents the collection:

  • click Enable image selection button

  • click the Star icon, bottom right corner of an image
  • Save


To rearrange the listing order of the Images in the Collection:

  • drag and drop the images in the Artworks in this Collection section
  • click Save when done

To rearrange the listing order of the Collections:

  • click on the up and down arrow icon to the left of the collection (gray bar, far left column)
  • hold cursor/mouse down
  • drag collection up or down the screen
  • release cursor when you have it in the correct order
