Creating an Image Set

To create a multiple-view Image Set, you need images that show an item from different points of view or show different aspects of the same item. The goal is to present viewers with images of an item so they get a solid idea of what an item looks like or does.

When you create a set, the Publish after save option affects the set and set members in the following ways:
“Publish after save” option selected before saving?
State of set after saving
State of set members after saving
Yes
Published
Published
No
Unpublished
Set members retain their published or unpublished state.
