Editing Your Portrait Database

If you need to make an edit to your portrait database after you’ve already uploaded it, go into the Photos menu and click Manage My Photos down below.

Select Portrait Database.

Pictavo offers quite a few tools to help make edits quick and easy. 

A: Select the photo you’d like you modify. You’ll notice a blue outline around your selection.
B: The information of the portrait you’ve selected will show up here, including name, grade and classifications. Once you’re finished editing, click OK.
C: If you’d like to use this picture in your candids, click Copy to Candids.
D: If you’d like to see a larger preview of this portrait, click on the Preview icon.
E: Should you need to move this portrait to a different category, select the Move arrow and move it accordingly.
F: To duplicate this portrait to another group, choose your second group from the dropdown menu here and click Duplicate.

If you need to edit multiple portraits, click or tap on each photo to select it.

In the event that you select a portrait that wasn't supposed to be selected, just click or tap again to deselect. The blue "selection" outline and check box will be gone when the photo is deselected.

With multiple photos selected, you’re not able to modify names, but you can change grade, group or role. You can also copy to candids, move and delete if needed.

You may see a small green number on the top right of a portrait. This indicates what page this particular photo has been used on. If you click on the page number, Pictavo will take you directly to that page.

To add a person to the database, make sure you don’t have anyone selected, then click the Add a Person icon.

Select Change Portrait to navigate to an image to use for the new person and fill in the portrait information needed so Pictavo will know where to flow the new portrait.

By default, Pictavo will offer up No Photo Available options. By selecting Upload, you have the option of navigating to the photo on your computer. Once you’ve located it, click the Choose Photo button to confirm.

Always remember to look at existing portrait flows to ensure nothing unexpected has changed!
