Have you ever wanted to created a cool post on Tumblr that features MORE than one image?
That’s what we would call a collection post. Maybe it’s a cool outfit that you’d like to talk about, or pairs of shoes that you might buy, or heck, it could just be cute pictures of puppies or kitties.
Sometimes, you just want to include more than one image in a Tumblr post and you don’t want to corral a graphic designer to do so.
Now you don’t have to.
All you have to do is create a Rately question from the images that you would like to use - and then you can post that collection image directly to your Tumblr blog.
Here’s how it all works.
First, find the collection of stuff (in image form) that you would like to use to create a really cool “collection post” on Tumblr.
Here’s an easy example - a page of cool stuff on a store. Say you’re looking to create a post with some beautiful rings - and you would like to pull items from the selection at Neiman Marcus.
So, here’s a page of turquoise rings on Neiman Marcus.
Now that you’ve found a great selection of rings, launch the Rately bookmarklet (that you read about at http://rately.com/about).
You’ll see a screen that looks like this, where you can choose up to 9 rings and then ask a question.
Now, all you have to do is click through to your newly created question (click on the link that says - Your question has been posted).
You’ll see your new question in all of its glory. It will look like this:
Just choose the Tumblr button on your question, follow the usual directions for posting to Tumblr.
When you’re done, you’ll see that you have a new Tumblr post that looks like this:
You’ll be the envy of all of tumblr-land.
