New and Improved Clipper

Today we launched some big improvements to our Clipper tool which will make bringing items into Polyvore much easier.

Once you install the new Clipper (read instructions for bringing items into Polyvore, and see a demonstration), you'll notice that it works a little differently than it did before.



When browsing another website (such as Net-a-Porter.com or Gap.com, or any site you like), click the "Clip to Polyvore" button to open a dropdown in the upper right hand corner. When you rollover the image you'd like to import, you'll see a green border around it and you can click anywhere on the image to select it. Once you click on the image, a thumbnail of the item will appear in the dropdown - add some tags, hit "Import" and you're done!

The best part is that you can now import several items all at once! Your virtual wardrobe will be bursting :)

Check out the new clipper, and let us know what you think!

the new clipper keeps telling me to sign in, even if I already did. What should I do?

otherwise its good.

I want to clip a image of a set that i made which has 50 items and then finish the set but how can i do that?

I still don't understand this whole clipper thing. it annoys me to death but seriously how do i drag an image onto the clipper? why dont you make a function where we can upload photos from our PC to use instead? When i drag the image onto the 'clipper' nothing happens...sucks

Where's the best place to get help for the tool? I'm trying to load some images from a website I help run. I continually get "You cannot import from this site at this time."

Is there something I can change on my site to allow imports into polyvore?

Thank you
