Exploring the KoolrPix Gallery

There are four types of KoolrPix templates; Editable text, Add your face/image, Animated, and Backgrounds.  We’ll discuss each of these in greater details in another section of the blog.

KoolrPix fanatics, like you, who have created their own Koolrs and saved them as editable Public Templates are also featured in the Shared Gallery and available for you to edit and share.  Editable templates are clearly identified on any Koolr properties page previews.  When you click on an editable template from any Gallery selection, you can also give it a rating by clicking on the hearts.  You can also add it to your favorites making it accessible via your personal Private Profile.

Template_Description

Clicking on a template from the Gallery displays the template properties.  Editable templates display the yellow corner sash.  Locked templates can be accessed by selecting a subscription option that works best for you (Monthly or Annual KoolrPix GOLD Membership).

Creating Your KoolrPix Profile

OK, so you’ve registered an account with KoolrPix and you understand the basics: Content that isn’t free for everyone is clearly identified with a LOCK icon.  Affordable monthly and annual KoolrPix GOLD membership subscriptions are available to instantly unlock all available content.  And, because we’re an ART production studio, members enjoy the full benefits of having unfettered access to ALL NEW CONTENT we publish on KoolrPix through the full term of a selected membership.

Sharing the Koolrs you create with the KoolrPix community enables you to build a fan base and interact with them through your personal profile.  Once you have registered, you can access your private profile by selecting MY KOOLRS from the home page.

You can select the account details you want to share publically.

My Koolr and My Templates

Here’s where things get really Kool!

My Koolrs:  When you edit and save a KoolrPix template, you have the option of saving it as PRIVATE (for your eyes only), or as a PUBLIC Koolr (shared with the KoolrPix community).

My Templates: Templates are Koolrs that you save as EDITABLE.  When you save a template, you can chose to save it as a PRIVATE template (for your eyes only), or as PUBLIC template (shared AND EDITABLE by the KoolrPix community).  Templates you save as PRIVATE can be opened and Koolrized by you again at any time.  All of the layers used in constructing the template can be selected and edited in your new Koolr.  Isn’t that KOOL!  Templates you save as PUBLIC, can be opened and Koolrized by the KoolrPix community, BUT they CANNOT be saved by anyone else again as an EDITABLE template, only as a PUBLIC or PRIVATE Koolr.

When your EDITABLE templates are edited and shared by other KoolrPix members, your original Koolr is always identified as the original source template.  This is how you become a famous KoolrPix artist, and grow your fan base.  Members will visit your profile and browse your personal Gallery of Koolr creations.  They will HEART their favorites (by clicking on the heart icons below the Koolr on the Koolr description page) and help you elevate your artistic standing in the KoolrPix community.

Hearts

My Favorites

Whenever you find a Koolr you love that has been shared by the KoolrPix community, you can add it to your  FAVORITES.  When other members add your Koolrs to their favorites, you accumulate addition points.

Users that Make Me Popular

As you become more popular, the members who have helped you on your path to becoming a Master Koolrizer are also acknowledged.  This works in your favor also whenever you assign HEARTS to other KoolrPix members.  Your avatar appearing on other member’s profile will help others discover you.  The social component in KoolrPix is designed to create a support community for new and emerging KoolrPix artists.

PRIVATE and PUBLIC settings

We’ve already discussed who you designate a new Koolr creation as being PRIVATE or PUBLIC whenever you save your Koolr creations.  So, what do you do after the fact if you want to change this setting?  Don’t worry, we’ve got this covered!  When you select My Koolrs or My Templates, you’ll see that each of the preview thumbnails has an EYE icon.  You can turn on/off the PUBLIC/PRIVATE setting for each Koolr or Template by clicking on the EYE icon.   When you change a PUBLIC/PRIVATE setting, remember to click SAVE when you’re done.  Now, isn’t that Kool!

The “X” will delete your Koolr or Template.  You can designate multiple Koolrs at one time for deletion by clicking the X on each Koolr you want to delete.  Just remember to click SAVE when you’re done.Public_Private

Add Titles and Captions to Your Koolrs

When you create and save a Koolr or a Template, you can add a Title and Caption (description) which can be a simple or as elaborate as you desire.  The words can add context to your Koolr and help you tell a story.

We use these words in the search engine which also makes it easier for other members to discover your artistic creations.  Have fun adding compelling titles and captivating captions to all your Koolrs!

You’ll note that we also give you a handy EYE icon  and delete option directly on each Koolr and Template profile page.

KoolrPix_Options

Saving Your Koolrs

When you save a KoolrPix template that you have edited, you have two options; you can save your Koolr as a PRIVATE image (For Your Eyes Only), or you can make the Koolr PUBLIC and share the image with the KoolrPix community.  By default, all images are stored for PRIVATE viewing only.  You must click the checkbox to make the image PUBLIC.  When you share an image publically, please adhere to the KoolrPix Terms of Use.  All Koolrs shared publically are reviewed for appropriate subject matter and objectionable content.

Save_Options

Saving Your Own Edited Photos and Images

When you load your own photos and images into iKoolr, you can also save the finished Koolrs as PRIVATE or PUBLIC.  You can also designate whether you want to save your creation as an EDITABLE template, allowing the KoolrPix community to edit your original work.

When you choose to allow others to EDIT your Koolr, you are agreeing to allow others to EDIT your template design, but not save it as an editable design.  As the original designer of the template, you are identified as the original artist.  This is a great way for you to enhance your artistic profile in the KoolrPix community and at the same time allow others to benefit from your creativity as they create new Koolrs.

Leaving the save options unchecked, you save the template as a PRIVATE uneditable Koolr (for your eyes only, and not editable—by you or anyone else).
