ACS: How do Spotlight photos work?

Post by ClowWizardEriol » Tue Aug 23, 2011 7:07 pm

Hi,
I see on my photographer page that there is a Spotlight section, which says I can pick up to 5 photos to show up on my photographer profile page. However, I can't find any way to select photos for the Spotlight in any of my albums. How does this functionality work? Thanks.

First off you go into your album http://www.acparadise.com/acs/tools.php?t=albums

Click into the album you wish to feature, then click into the photo you want to be in spotlight. Scroll down and you should see it as an option

Add to Spotlight (5 slots left)

Just click that and press Go!

Then it should be listed as a spotlight photo/gallery on your front page.

I think my account is bugged. All I see are these three options in an album

Link Cosplayer
Link Event
Remove Photos

To be more specific, you have to go into the actual photo, not just the album. So the exact steps are:

1. Go to Tools
2. Go to My Albums
3. Pick an Album
4. Click on a picture in the album

You'll know you're on the right page when it shows the photo, along with Basic information, Cosplayers Identified, Events Linked, Series Identified on the right hand side. At the bottom, you'll see a white box, "What do you want to do with this Photo?"

Genjitsu,
Thank you for the more detailed instructions. I see the additional options now when I view a specific photo.
