Visjou Parking Lot
Your Visjou “Parking Lot” is a virtual storage area where you have "parked” items you are planning on using in the creation of your Visjou Lookbooks.
“Re-packing” an item - As a Visjou member, you can re-pack items from another member’s Lookbook to use in one of your own creations. To re-pack simply click on the item of desire while viewing the Lookbook and click on the “Pack it” button underneath the URL.
Step 2: Design a Visjou Lookbook
To design a Visjou Lookbook start by clicking on the “Create Lookbooks” button from the Home page, or the Create New button in the My Lookbooks page.
Upon clicking Create New, you will need to answer 3 questions:
- Name of the Lookbook
- Details of the Trip the Lookbook is for
- What activities you experienced or plan on experiencing with this specific trip
Once the Lookbook details are defined, you are ready to start creating within the Visjou Lookbook Editor.
Place your header image by clicking the blue plus sign at the top of the blank Lookbook. Images can be placed from your Visjou Parking Lot, or if preferred you can upload your own image.
Once you have placed a header image (which you can resize and reposition), you are ready to begin adding pages to your Lookbook by clicking on one of the templates provided along the right hand side of the Lookbook Editor.
Complete the page of a Lookbook by placing items from your Parking Lot into each of the page’s frames. To place an image in the frame, simply click on the blue plus sign (you can move and resize the images within each frame).
Repeat the process of adding pages and filling in the frames until your Lookbook is complete.
You can add as many pages to a Lookbook as you like. We recommend a page for each day or activity of your trip.
Once your Lookbook is complete, you can share it by clicking the “Publish” button at the top. If you do not click the publish button, your Lookbook will not be available to be viewed by other members nor will it show up in the browse Lookbooks search results for the community to enjoy.
If you have additional files you’d like to share you can attach them to your Lookbook by clicking on the Packing List, Itinerary, or Budget Plan icons available on the right hand side of the Lookbook Editor.
