What Are Collections?

Collections are a convenient place to drag and drop media files you like, and/or a place to store and categorize groups of your own uploaded files. You can create multiple Collections for different projects or topics of your choosing.

You can add items to a collection directly from the search results page by clicking the "Add to Collection" icon on the clip(s) you would like to add


This will open the collections window, where you can use the text bar at the top of the window to create a new collection or find an existing one. This window will also allow you to view and browse all of your collections.


To create a new collection, simply type your desired name into the search bar and hit the + icon


You will then get a confirmation message at the bottom of the page, and you can view the entire collection from here.


Setting a Default collection

Click on the collection you would like to set as your default collection
