Have you ever been all set to upload a layout and realize you’ve used papers from 2 designers, elements from another and an alpha from yet another… and you don’t remember which 4 designers it was?
I think we’ll all been there at some point, even when we know that keeping track of product credits is so important.
There are many ways to do keep it all organized, but its up to you to find one that fits your routine. Simple Scrapper offers three options that just might work for YOU.
1. Use a Table of Contents – Create a new Word document and drag your web-ready images into it. Under each image, list the credits as well as where you’ve uploaded the layout.
2. Use Layers – In your PSD or other graphics file, label each layer with the designer and kit name.
3. Tag It – Use an image organization program, like Lightroom or PSE Organizer, to tag your final layouts with the designer and kit name.
What we don’t recommend is relying solely on one gallery to store your layout “metadata”. While big sites do have backups, nothing is foolproof. Make sure YOU have a backup.
It only takes an extra minute for each layout to keep your records up to date. No excuses! How do you keep track?
