Create an Image Set creating-an-image-set

To create a multiple-view Image Set, you need images that show an item from different points of view or show different aspects of the same item. The goal is to present viewers with images of an item so they get a solid idea of what an item looks like or does.

When you create a set, the Publish after save option affects the set and set members in the following ways:

Publish after save option selected before saving?
State of set after saving
State of set members after saving
Yes
Published
Published
No
Unpublished
Set members retain their published or unpublished state.

When you create an Image Set, Adobe recommends the following best practices and enforces the following limits:

Limit type
Best practice
Limit imposed
Number of duplicate assets per set
No duplicates
20‡
Maximum number of images per set
5-10 images per set
1000

‡ Best practice is to not have duplicate assets in a set. The limit is 20 duplicates for a single asset. If you add another duplicate for that asset—within that set—the request either gives an error or ignores the duplicate.

See also Dynamic Media limitations.

To create an Image Set:

  1. Do one of the following:

    • Select the images first - In the Browse Panel, select the images you want for your Image Set, go to Build > Image Sets.

    • Start from the Image Set screen - Go to Build > Image Sets. The Image Set screen opens. Select a folder in the Asset Library and drag the images you want for your Image Set onto the Image Set screen.

  2. To change the order of images, drag the images to new locations.

  3. Near the lower-right corner of the page, ensure that Publish after save is selected (default).

  4. Select Save, select a folder for storing your Image Set, enter a name for the set, and then select Save.

  5. To see your Image Set in the Image Set Viewer, select Preview on the Image Set screen. You can select swatch thumbnails in the Image Set Viewer to see how they behave.

To edit an Image Set:

  1. In the Grid View, browse to an ImageSet, and then below the image, select Edit.

  2. Do any of the following:

    • To add an image (published or unpublished), drag it from a folder in Add Assets onto the Image Set’s Views page.
    • To remove an image, select it, and then select Delete on the toolbar.
    • To reorder images, drag an image to a new position.
  3. When you are finished editing the set, near the lower-right corner of the page, ensure that Publish after save is selected (default).

  4. Select Save, select a storage folder for your set, enter a name for the set, and then select Save.

Delete an Image Set

When you delete a set, the set itself is moved to the Trash. However, the members (or “children”) within that set are not affected; instead, they each retain their existing published or unpublished state.

To delete an Image Set:

  1. In the Grid View, List View, or Details View, select one Image Set or more.
  2. On the Global Navigation Bar, go to File > Delete > Delete.
