I received a great question from a reader asking for specific directions to set the categories in a Zazzle store using images rather than text. The following steps will explain how to do this. Using images is a great way for your customers to find their favorite design on all the products you offer.
2. You will now be on the ‘Choose Your Content’ page (Ill. 2). Check the boxes as I have done, with special attention to ‘Change store display options’ circled in red. Choose ‘Full grid’ which will allow you to show an image as a category.
3. Next go to your product page (Ill. 3). Choose ‘Add new category’ (circled in red). The ‘Add new category’ box now pops up (Ill. 4). Click ‘Change’ (circled in red) and you will be prompted to choose an image, either from your uploaded images or from images on your computer. Fill in the ‘Category name’ box as well as the ‘Description box’ and click ‘Done’. Your image will show up on your home page with the category name appearing in your sidebar. To insure an appealing and orderly look on your home page, be sure to use images for your image categories that are the same size and shape. I suggest cropping your images into a square shape of 5×5″ at a resolution of 72 before uploading. Repeat this process for each image you wish to represent a category on your home page.
I hope my readers find this article clear and easy to understand. I am always happy to answer questions and look forward to any and all feedback.
