Price Variations : How to edit

Zetsy supports price variations.  A column called “variation” denotes whether a listing has variations or not.   In addition, on the left side when variations are available a plus sign will appear.   Clicking on this plus sign will open a drop down where the variations for that listing can be observed.   Pricing changes function as they do without variations EXCEPT now all variation options prices are changed now too.

For complete details on price changes please see the topic on running a sale.

Adding and Removing Headlines to Images

 

Headlines used in Sales

This topic is linked to Setting up a Sale.  As part of a Sale set-up the user can request image changes to go along with the sale.  These image changes add and subtract Image Headlines (abbreviated HL).  Headlines are placed at the top of the image and added to the image.  No loss in resolution of the main image occurs.   Through the Image Headlines one can set-up specific sale images and changes the size, color, and font of the sale.

Editing and uploading Images requires that Zetsy has authorization.  Authorization is shown by the appearance of a key and the words “Priv Access” at the bottom left of the main menu.  How to set-up authorization can be found here.  To edit images, the FULL Images need to be downloaded.  This can be easily accomplished by clicking the Image button under choose additional.

 Add / Subtract Headlines

A short video showing the capability of the oprogram is shown below.  All of this can be set-up automatically in the setting up of a sale.

From the Main Menu, choose the edit Image functions.  This will bring up the following form.  Adding watermarks has already been covered in another blog topic.   Any settings changed here will be kept locally, you will NOT have to keep doing this for each sale.  Choose <Headline> from the list of functions on the left side.  As with watermarks you can choose the text, the font, the font color, and the font size.  In addition to the items used for watermarks you can select the size of the headline and whether you wish to add a sale image.  The size of the headline is in percent of the original image.   For instance setting this to 10 means a headline the size of 10% of the original image size will be added.   To add a sale image, choose from the drop down box <Add Promo Image>.   A few choices exist now, more will be coming.   If you want something special be sure to convo us with your request..    The addition of a sale image headline is shown below.

Note that if you hover the mouse a handy help menu will show up for many of these functions.

When you are ready to add the headline text now, simply hover over the shown image and right click the mouse.  The Image will change and the headline will be added to the top.   If the image is acceptable, click the check button on the image controller immediately above the image  (this control is the one used to scroll through the images).  Click the upload button and the changed image with headline is added to your Etsy shop.

Important:  For Sales there is NO NEED to upload the changed images as this is don automatically by the Sale Price Change feature.   The Setup of the Headline is still done here.

HEADLINE REMOVAL

To REMOVE a headline, the Image function selection should be on Remove HL.  As with the addition of a headline, click the image with the left mouse button once.  The headline is now removed.  The removed image can also be uploaded to your Etsy shop.    Be sure to remember the headline size you originally entered as you ccan start removing portions of the image if you are not careful.   Specifics about image locations and the Zetsy database can be found here.
