Help Pages: Using Closet Couture [ category topics ]
What are the albums for?
My Albums are photo albums every member has on their page. We give you 3 standard ones: My Looks, Looks for Me and Party Pictures.
- My Looks is where you can save looks you create in the dressing room. You can also upload photos of yourself from anywhere – it is a big photo album for where you can see how you looked. Use it as an archive, use it to plan ahead, whatever you want.
- Looks for Me is the album where other people who make outfits for you (stylists, friends, retailers) save those outfits. By default when someone who shares your closet makes you an outfit, it will be saved in that album…so if you are looking for an outfit your friend made you, it will be in there.
- Party Pictures is…yup, you guessed it… where you can save all your fun photos from parties or anything that gets you out and about. Have your friends rate your looks, rate theirs and generally send them kudos on their rockin' look.
Can I make more albums?
Yes, we give you unlimited albums – because we know you are busy people with different interests and activities. If you look at my albums (which are all public) you can see some of my wedding pictures, a travel album and more.
How do I upload photos into My Albums?
Go to the My Albums area on your Homepage, and click on any album. Then, Click on UPLOAD IMAGE and browse for the image you'd like to upload.
How do I make a new album?
Follow the steps above, and when you get to pick which album you'd like to save your image in, choose the last option in the drop-down menu which is New Album. Then, you can name your new album what you'd like and then select that to be where your photos upload.
How does the background remover work? It looks scary and wonderful!
The background remover, AKA Sheldon's Magical Background Remover, works with contrast technology. The magical remover captures a piece of a corner of the photo, looks at what color is there, and takes away everything in a similar hue. Cool, huh?
I want to do more editing to my image - can I?
Yes, you can. Upload the image with out using the background remover. Just upload it plain and simple. Then, save it in the category of your choice, and name it, etc. Go into the My Closet section and find the item and double click on it. You will see a tab in the pop-up box that says "Image Tools". There you have a choice to crop out the background or use the background remover with more control, or both.
More advanced editing tools will be coming soon. For the time being you may want to use Flickr, Picnik, Photoshop or a graphics program outside of Closet Couture and then import the image into your closet exactly as you like it.)
