Media on homepage of store

I'd like to not have these media files on my store front, but I cannot find an option to remove them anywhere. Does anyone know how to do this? Thanks!

Hey Anne!

May I ask what media files you're referring to? : )

They're the images on the right-hand side under Media (keep sharp, David! Grin ) and that we have to create to complete our store profile.

Above the media window is a link called "manage media"

if you click that it takes you to the media page where there is an "edit" button at top right and next to the "upload button" if you click on edit it takes you to another page where you can select which images you want to delete.

Hope that helps.

Careful though. Inasmuch as Media files are required for store completion, Zazzle must consider them important. If you delete them all, I think your Z-rank might just fall. (I know I had underestimated their role and had my store at 95% done for the longest time. Once I added them, I rose a Z-rank point overnight. And, you want at least a 4 and a 5 is even better for exposure.)

Colorwash, Shelli and Saints_Aplenty, thank you for your further explanations. That was exactly what I was referring to. So if you can't delete them, I would like an option to hide them. Decluttering the store :-)

Anne, unless you have a lot of links out there to your store, maybe it isn't worth being concerned over since customers don't generally and deliberately go to a designer's store.

On the other hand, what's the value of the media? A shopper has to wander to the storefront, and once there, has to click on miscellaneous pictures because...why? If an image is clicked, they see a larger version of it that's connected to no products. If I were the customer, I'd think, "Huh?"

I have seen some designers use media in a better way that I have, mine basically just shows my range of styles. but I saw one designer that made and uploaded you tube videos telling about herself and art work methods. So if you use it right (and I don't) it could be very helpful.

I never could get any videos to upload for some reason. I had a couple of me painting some of the pieces that I use and thought that would be a fun addition. For now I have a few work in progress pictures and a couple that have some products from my store in real life.

I wonder why uploading media is required. The ability to do so is nice for those who want to use it, but making it a necessity? Strange.
