I know it's been asked for many times over but now is critical
Posted: Thursday, March 07, 2019 1:22:47 PM
So when Z comes out with a new product we spend WAY more time in our image folders than usual. If I'm doing the new stickers for example I am using one particular image folder at a time and I systematically use the images from this folder, then move onto the next relevant folder...

without access to that last used image folder it's taking me a lot of wasted time having to navigate back and forth.

So please please please can you put a link back to our last used image folder (even if it's nothing more than a bread crumb link) as a priority in your daily bucket list of things to get done. I don't think anyone can underestimate how important this is to us when we are designing a newly introduced product.

Thank you for listening.

Agree,

I know Scott said it was being worked on and I appreciate that but we need it yesterday.

I agree but it doesn't impact me as much as I had imagined since I mostly use the search. The preview on the side bugs me more because often I don't see enough of the design to know which is which. Add delete is just as much annoying as is walking down the link tree over and over and over and over and over and over ... etc ... and over again.

BTW magical mystery titles are a bad habit and has your fellow forum guests click threads they wouldn't have if they had known about the subject. Put the meat of your content in form of a catch phrase in the title. A generic question has similar effects. It produces unproductive unnecessary click.

Thank you for your input. Search has it's limits since who can really memorize every image in an image folder? or example I have an image folder with sports images in it. Sure I can search basketball, baseball, football etc. but there are fringe sports I don't even remember are in that folder and other graphics that borderline sports and fishing lets say and when I created the file I'm not sure if I titled it fishing or sports. There are so many variations on sports I can't remember them all so I go back to the folder, page by page seeking out images I feel are relevant to the product I'm producing. In addition when I first started out I was not as smart about the naming convention I used to create my image titles so I would miss out on images that are not so obvious to search for.

And since we have no link back to the last image folder for me this means trip after trip after trip navigating back to that folder till I am done seeking out the images I want to use.

On the subject title: you are absolutely right. Please accept my apologies there. I'll do better next time.

Edit: regarding the folder titles on the left side navigation area
The space is so crowded/ narrow that is it difficult to reach folder titles at times because they appear crunched into the space.

Have a great selling day

Me too!

The worst is creating a new invitation or something with multiple images so you need to go in several times while you futz around to perfect it.

I was looking to see if someone had already posted this.. yes for designers who create sets of products that match or products with layers of images - this is very important.. going back to the beginning each and every time is such a waste of time and drives me crazy.. I am spending far to much time fooling with the images files.

+1 and I would repeat it another 1000 times if I had even a hint it would help move this to the top of the to do list!!!!

Just thought of an alternative means to getting us back to the last image folder....

maybe you can supply a search box for image folder name?
This might bypass the need to do any special coding work beyond returning the resulting / requested image folder link or direct entrance into the landing page for the folder.

Just a thought

That would certainly be better than what we have now.

I think this is now "FIXED"

I have tried several edits, going back and forth from layers to UPLOAD, to text, to Upload and my last selection (searched for cats) remained!!!Idea Idea Idea

Thanks Zazzle.

I haven't found a way to search for the FOLDER name though.

Sorry I don't think so. I've been designing for hours and still have to keep navigating back to the same last folder to seek out the images I want to use.
If I memorized the filename for every image I've uploaded I could search for them but until then.... please give us access to the last folder used.

It is still working for me.

On left navigator UPLOADS
I don't have to open the full image browser page.
I search cats - select image - do some editing - go back to UPLOADS and cats are still there.

NOTE: tagging your images with specific words is possible. In IMAGE BROWSER find the image, click on (i) in lower right corner. Under description type in some key words for that image. The navigator image search looks at these words.

OK
- I did same method for opening FULL IMAGE BROWSER and that doesn't seem to have been fixed yet.

The sidebar search is fairly useless on occasions



These black squares are linking to labels with various proportions and different corner styles, but there is no way for me to tell which is which. So I either insert & delete until I have the one I want or I have to climb down the link tree or enter the search term new each time. I have this peeve with other search terms, where the preview in the sidebar fails to tell me, which is which and I have total magic mystery previews. I'd rather have the sidebar improved before the link tree climb down is addressed, because the sidebar is far more convenient for the design process than opening the full image browser.

Thank you for your input. Yes going back to a search may work in the smaller browse window but....

In this thread post we are asking for a way back to the last image folder used. Totally different thing. I can not express how frustrating it is to go into a folder to grab an image. Then minutes later realize I need another image from that folder and have to navigate back to that folder... again.

And with the left browser folder view condensed so much it makes it hard to find them sometimes because if a folder name has more than one word, the folder name is split into two lines and things are feeling crowded that way.

From above "And with the left browser folder view condensed so much it makes it hard to find them sometimes because if a folder name has more than one word, the folder name is split into two lines and things are feeling crowded that way."

I see that Z has "fixed" the problem of tuncated file names by removing them completely.

If the Browse screen on the left was linked to the full browser screen and the search in the latter was retained (i.e. showing contents of the folder in the Left browse screen). That would negate having to locate the folder each time.

Better yet would be for the FULL BROWSE to remember searches and the "Upload" button on the design navigater would automatically open the Full Browser screen in a new window (so we could see the designer AND move about the folder/s at the same time).

For those of you wanting a semi-fix, sort of, to having your images "easier" to find. Here's a fix I found for myself that works pretty good, while we wait for a better fix from Zazzle.

Here's what I do. To make my album right at the top, I put either brackets or parentheses around the name of my album. It brings it to the top of your list.

I believe the filing is alphabetical, so you can also put an "A, B, etc. order". But, I find that the parentheses or bracket system does better for temporary applications, and the alphabetical way does best for always something I use consistently.

Hope that helps someone.

You're very welcome!

Further to that, the fix I use when working with the same products repeatedly is to "edit" the images I'm working on. It forces them to the top of "all images" so that they're at the front when you open images.

Usually I just add them to the album they're already in. Sometimes it takes you doing it about 3 times, but it's quick.

So far this has worked like a charm. I've been doing it successfully for several months.

Thank you for the tip / s.

The problem many of us are having is not needing access to the same image repeatedly, but the same image folder. Example. Tonight I was designing the new contour stickers. I was working my folder with animals in it because the sticker shapes lend themselves well to cute animals, especially for kids.

So I grab a rabbit. Then I have to navigate back to the folder to find the next relevant animal. Then once again I have to navigate back to the folder to find a cow, then back to find a frog, etc. etc. It's adding wasted time.

I hear ya. It's so frustrating.
