Maybe you’re looking for the perfect image to match the design on your website, or maybe you just aren’t sure which photos you want to showcase. Whatever the case may be, you now have the ability to place photos from Unsplash directly onto your Joy website and app. You can choose from Unsplash’s beautiful and diverse selection of photos simply by searching for what you want within Joy’s Photos page. Here’s some step-by-step instructions to show you how to do this!
First, head over to your Photos page from your admin dashboard. Once you are there, you will see the + button on the page, which you should click on in order to add photos to your website:
A box will open up, and you’ll see the options to upload photos from various sources (from your device, from Facebook, Instagram, Google Drive, etc, etc) and you will also see the Unsplash option on the top when you hover over it, (below “My Device”) as seen below:
Click on “Unsplash” and another box will open up where you can enter the search terms for the type of images you want to find; for example, ‘abstract art,’ ‘beaches,’ or ‘floral’ etc etc:
Click on the blue “search icon” and various images will appear, which you can scroll through, and select the ones you would like to upload to your Joy site:
Once you have clicked on and selected the images you want to upload, a blue check mark will appear on the photos, and a blue “View/Edit Selected” button will also appear on the bottom right side of the box. You will also be able to see how many photos you have selected. Click on the “View/Edit Selected” button when you’re ready to move forward.
The next box will allow you to edit the images before uploading them, or you can also remove any images you may have decided not to upload. Click on the “Edit” button to the right of the image to edit, or click on the “X” to remove the image:
For editing, you can crop, circle or rotate your image. (“Circle” means the image will be cropped into a circle):
For each of your desired changes, be sure to click on “Save” to keep your changes. (You can also click on “Reset” if you want to reset the photo back to the original version). Once you’ve saved your changes, you can use another editing tool, or you can click “Done” if you are done editing.
You’ll be brought back to the box where you can preview all the images you are about to upload, revert images back to the original state (if you don’t want to keep the changes that you made to them), remove any photos that you don’t want, or upload more photos. When you are ready to upload the selected photos, simply click the blue “Upload” button and your photos will start uploading to your Photos page!
And that’s pretty much it! Once your new images are uploaded you can assign them to be the cover photo(s) for any of the pages on your site. And of course, you can always come back to your Photos page at any point to repeat the process if you need a new image for your site, or even if you want to incorporate a new image into one of your emails.
Enjoy uploading and editing photos to your heart’s content!
