University Image Portfolios

If you've used any of the University Image Services Collections, like the AAEL Digital Images, then you've probably seen the "add to portfolio" button. You can use this option to create private or public image collections for classes or personal use.

There are two ways to start a new portfolio:
1.) Check several images on the thumbnails page, and then hit the "Add checked to portfolio" button
2.) On the individual record page, simply hit "add to portfolio"

This will take you to the Portfolios site where you will be asked to create a new portfolio or whether you'd like the image to be put into an existing portfolio.

From the portfolios page, you can browse other public portfolios or choose to edit the authors and public/private status of your own portfolio. You can also download entire portfolios of images.

For more tips, check the help page, and if you need more help downloading portfolios check the Export More Help page.
