How to Edit Categories

Categories are useful for organizing your captures to make them easier to search and find. To create or edit your categories you would do the following:

Click on your name icon in the upper right hand part of your screen. Then click Account.


You will be brought into your account settings page. On the left hand side of the screen click Edit Categories.


Upon clicking on the Edit Categories you will see, in the upper right hand part of the screen, Add Category, click on it.


Clicking Add Category will bring you to a page where you will see Category Name and Category Options.


You will want to fill in the information. In the next picture you will see some ideas of what to use. The idea here is to come up with a category name that helps describe the assets to be placed in this category. The category options further refine the assets in to specific types of things in the category. Fill in the information with things, perhaps, like this:


Having filled in the information for your category name and options you will want to click Save Changes. This will save the work you have just done and will create your new category.


Clicking near the top of the screen on the Aperture Platform title will bring you back out to the main gallery and you will now be able to see your new category just underneath the search bar.


This new category will also be visible if you were to click on an asset in the main gallery. You will be take to that asset's gallery page. Click on Product Info and scroll down. On the right hand side of the page you will see:


There you have it. You have created a new category by which you can organize your assets.
