Working on Collection Update!

posted on 13th of april, 2010

After some time of having my Best Of... collection, that was created last July & with over 2300 views now, I found my self in a small trouble as the collection has started to be so big and with out being updated!

I really didn't want to delete any of the chosen images as most were chosen by me & some were selected by some photographers in a previous blog.

So I thought of two solutions:
Dividing the collection into 3, which are:

Babies & Kids, that was created by me before the Best of but was limited on my baby illustrations, now I moved all the babies & kids from the Best Of to it!

Best Of... ANIMAL, newly created one where I moved all the animals photos & illustrations...

Best Of..., let me call the Classic one, with the rest of the best & favorites!

From here I can tell you my second solution that comes with your effort to help me if you kindly want! :)

PLEASE tell me what is YOUR favorite image from your portfolio for me to add it to my collection... Obviously if it's about children & animals it will be placed on the right collection!

It took me some time to add the images to the new collections & deleting from the Best Of... (Maybe DT could help us in the future to have check boxes for multiple selections to move or delete!!)... I'll leave this as a request ;)

I'm doing this because I really believe if you want a collection to keep successful you should update it regularly!
I still remember some images there had started with none or few downloads, now they have passed to other levels!

Ought to see your favorites guys! Cheers :)

Great idea Maen :-) My portfolio is still so small and I am not sure one of my photos could be a "best of" :-)

Hi Maen,
Keeping busy as always! Is your little praying angel the one that you thought might be taken as FR rather than assignment? Very cute.
I've got quite a few babies and kids, hard for me to choose my favourites, but here are some ID numbers. 13445898 12413022 11811212 10983759 10842457 13745981 12770342 12543093 ... If it's too much let for you to check it all let me know and I'll trim it!
I've also got some animals 10842414 13744784 12422514
