Organize, sort, and filter your own gallery - manually or with tags
I’d like to be able to put some of my better pieces at the top so the ability to reorder my gallery would be amazing.
Please add a folder structure to My Work. One of the main reasons I got pigment was so I could add my own images in and have - series of books based on however I would like to organize the content. A folder for flowers, mandalas, faces, etc, where you just add the images to it.
Currently any uncolored pieces are just randomly showing up in my All Work section. I follow several designers and I grab their designs as soon as I spot them. I have to scroll through to find the ones I have saved for later to color. Also have to scroll down to find a design I haven’t finished.
Pigment are you working on any portion of this? Those of us who use the app daily and have hundreds of entries could really use all or some of these ideas. Even if only for premium members ! Thank you for your consideration. @DrDi

I would like to be able to organize my own work gallery (not published). It would be great if there were “tags” that I could apply to each picture and then sort by those tags. Want to see all your free hands- add that tag and sort! Wanna see all your greyscale - add that tag and sort! Wanna see all pictures that include fruit - add that tag and sort!
I would love to be able to view my gallery and those of others by colored Pigment pages, imports, and freehand drawings. I would also like to arrange my gallery as I see fit, much like an artist at an art fair would do...present my best work (in our own opinions) first. My free hands are much better than some of the colorings I have done and would like those to appear first.
Yes, we definitely need hashtags! And I agree with and vote for everything that Lyric suggested! I have been adding a hashtag to my recent abstracts (#DailyAbstracts) and encouraging others to do the same in the hope of being able to search by hashtags at a future date.

Provide the ability to sort images in your gallery. Number of likes, comments, most recent like or comment etc.
Once you have published a number of images it is difficult to know if anyone has viewed older published images.
The galleries for both Pigment and its customers are barely functional. They display images in LIFO order and allow basic commenting. With thousands of images in Pigment’s galleries and hundreds, if not thousands, in some personal galleries, locating an image literally (true meaning of the word) impossible. It is impossible to locate images from as recent as a few hours ago in some cases. Heaven forbid needing to find a post seen yesterday, last week, or last month.
For an adequate customer experience, galleries need the following options:
1. Sorting (By date, by user, by #hashtag).
2. Filtering (By date range, library, user, #hashtag)
3. Pagination (top, of page, bottom of page, prev, next, last, and page number selection and input).
4. Image resolution selection. There are many who use Pigment whose Internet speeds are godawful slow. The ability to peruse the gallery with low resolution images would be helpful. Hi res could be optional once the desired image is located and selected.
5. #Hashtags!!!!! In the absence of any method for customers to categorize the images we share (challenges, tutorials, thank you, etc.), #hashtag functionality is highly desirable.
What say you, @Pigment?
I don’t think so. I like to see the progression of the colorist. Just repost. I think it is extremely important to see dates of posts.
This would be great!
Allow us to assign a new gallery for the placement of challenge entries, or special,categories. Other apps allowed for this. It would be so much easier and nicer to go to it and see all the pictures in one place instead of having to create long tag lists so the ones interested are shown
The gallery gives us 3 options; Following, Popular, and Recent.
The "popular" option always yields fantastically colored pages ... that I can't download because they were *imported*. All I can do is vote on them.
It's great people can import and show off their work, but I want to see the best coloring pages of books I can get to in the Pigment app with my premium membership account.
My request is to have an additional gallery menu item that puts these imported pages in their own gallery and keeps the Pigment coloring book pages front and center of all galleries. Or, give us the option to see/hide imported pages.

In your published work, to be able to like or heart your favorite pieces so when people are looking at your gallery they can go to your favorites. In case they are too far down in the gallery.

There are times when I see something about a specific picture I like and want to refer to,but I don’t want to follow the person.
