VOLUME 18 // ISSUE 1

January 2017




We celebrate the new year with completely new design options.

We have also introduced new Control Panel customization tools. These are very intuitive to use and they give you more options and versatility in showing your work.

We encourage you to test some of the "Florence Themes" on your site, you can easily switch over to a new theme, all of your content and most design elements move seamlessly over...

1.    Go to your Control Panel and click on "Design"
2.    See the variety of dynamic gallery options, including panoramic views, a carousel, a   “masonry” effect as well as classic thumbnails
3.    Choose any new design and customize to suit. 
4.    Name the new design and save it.
5.    Repeat steps 2 and 3 if you are not totally happy.

You can save multiple designs and swap them out any time you want.


Note: switching your design will not affect your artwork, the info entered on your site or design elements like fonts and colors. 

We hope you have fun updating your site and exploring your new design options. Please let us know what you think.
