New Set Embellishments and Effects

Spice up your sets with new embellishments and effects! A picture is worth a thousand words, so we’ve included examples below to show you how to add texture and depth to your sets with these new embellishment categories: Effects and Textures, Patterns and Overlays, and Numbers, Arrows, and Symbols.

New Embellishments and Effects




To search for images in these categories, just type them into the search box in the editor. You can apply a transparency effect to images in these categories and color blocks, as well as change the color of images using this tool in the editor:


We can't wait to see how you use these new embellishments and effects in your sets! As always, let us know what you think and feel free to leave us more suggestions in the comment section.

Love,
The Polyvore Team

OMG I could have used the numbers yesterday when I made a set for my blog

Lίndsεy Marίε said...

I love this! It's so exciting to see what's new on Polyvore. :)

MarinaMarry said...

Wow, GREAT job !!!
Color block tool and this one are your best changes on Polyvore, EVER !
Thanks :)

Vania Hefira said...

So cool!!! Yay!

Minnie Romanovich said...

This is most excellent. Thank you so much! :)
Would it be possible, at some point in the future, to enable a search option among our saved items? I know many others have wanted this feature as well.

TwiceCharmed said...

This is great, but will we be able to use our previous effects and embellishments? Ever since the last change none of my textures work at all.

EMILY LIZ said...

Wow thank you so much guys!!!! this is awsome!!!!

My love EmilyLiz

miaka_archie said...

EMILY LIZ said...

Got to tell you I love the "Effects" great ideas you guys ROCK!!!

MinnieSoda said...

WoW!!! So excited to use these new tools! What a treat! :D

sugarcrash said...

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!

I LOVE and ADORE this new feature. I actually had a dorky dream about this, and meant to write to Polyvore to ask whether you might implement an opacity feature, but this is even better! :)

Carly L. said...

It would be awesome if we could resize the overlays, etc. without maintaining the aspect ratio. For example, it would be great to be able to stretch out a pattern into a rectangle!

Anonymous said...

Awesome!

sophisty said...

I've just made my first set using patterns and overlays. What fun! I can think of so many different ways to use these new embellishments. You guys are the BEST!

Susan Rodriguez said...

WOWWW!! Love them! We really neded that! I'm glad that polyvore is improving day by day! Thanx guys! :)

Saralee said...

Very confusing?? Can't figure it out? Don't see any of these catagories?

HB said...

Very Cool! I love using your applications. So easy! Thanks Polyvore.

Amazing changes! Love them!

It's fantastic! I am now even more addicted to this site. But, I think that something is still missing. It woud be great to know who is online! We don't need chat and such things. Just some green thingy next to our names for example... <3

indie girl said...

Cool!!! I noticed this change yesterday and I think it's great new idea! Thanks!

Anonymous said...

I'd like to see how this works(:

Anonymous said...

Great! Finally a change worthed to say thank you :)

Anonymous said...

Sounds great!Finally a change worthed a big thank you :)

Lisa R said...

These are really great but I know I won't remember the category names when I'm looking for them, can the "groups" be added to the embellishments section of the main items tab please. Also as others have mentioned, some items that we used to be able to remove some of the backgrounds on are now just solid images, can these be changed back?
Thanks :-)

lyudmyla said...

This is amazing! ...polyvore just doesn't stop getting better! :)

MagicCrystal said...

that is really cool! can't wait to use them!

Anonymous said...

HEY GREAT NEWS WITH THIS NEW TOOLS IS IT ALREADY AVAILABLE IF YES HOW DOES IT WORK?
THANKS

RG said...

These sound like fabulous ideas. I can't wait to use them! I would love to see a search box and/or color palette in the 'My Items' section. It would make finding what I'm looking for or a number of things in a specific color so much easier. Please, please, please consider this!

lιpѕlιĸeмorpнιne. said...

As cool as they are.

They can't replace the textures you got rid of before.

Please fix the problem.

Though after this update I'm sure you did it on purpose now.

Anonymous said...

these new things are amazing! but i think i speak for a lot of people when i say that the text really needs to be fixed! when you type something and put a space between words, it puts the next word UNDER the previous word instead of next to it. this causes some difficulty because you either have to put underscores instead of spaces and then cover them up, or make each individual word by itself. Fixing this spacing issue would be greatly appreciated! (:

StephanieMarieD said...

cool!! I've been craving transpanency! :)

Elisa @ Globetrotting in Heels said...

LOVE it! I have been wishing for the transparency effect for background images, thank you!

Anonymous said...

What about texture problems???!!! we are waiting already a month!

Anonymous said...

SKFLDJFD THIS IS AWESOME!

Nenaki said...

Flora said...

I love this new improvements! I just wish there'd be more contests for everyone, lately it seems that all of them are only open to US residents.

Textures SOS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Pay attention to us please!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Jilbert said...

I'm confused ... I don't see any new categories under Embellishments ... all I see is Background, Text, Music, Colors, and Frames & Borders. I have dumped my cache in all my browsers (all 3) and still don't see anything.

yoyinicus-gloria uribe said...

Wonderful new aid to improve our set.What is absent is still the tool that helps us to apply a transparency or change color.How do I put this tool?

Anonymous said...

I can't figure it out.. :(
Ugh! I love this affect though!

Anonymous said...

Great, even if it would be much more easier to use if you make for them a separete category as it was done for frame and background.^^

prettypinkponies said...

i love the added textures.

thecleveridiot said...

Would it be possible to have a 'move to the very back/front' button? That way if you have a set with lots of items in it already & you decide to add another, you can just move it straight to the back rather than having to continuously press the back button! Thank you! =]

Anii said...

I think this is a really awesome idea and plan on using it a lot! But I have one question: Could you guys possibly put it on the All Items Home Page in the Editor under Embellishments? That would make these awesome tools much easier to find for all polyvore users.
Thanks for being so awesome!

fantastic:) <3!!!!

EMILY LIZ said...

I like the idea of having a tool bar in polyvore. Kinda like on facebook that says "whats on ur mind". Maybe put the tool bar in the poly members profile.

That be fun to see whats people are say in groups and what our contact friends are says. I'd like people to see what I say.

Just a new idea that i thought of a few days ago.

I like our general comment to come out on the left, where we get our group announcements. =)

Gothic_Pheonix said...

How do I get the transparency? I can't find it, no matter what I do. Do I have to upgrade my browser in order to get it?

Anonymous said...

Is this set up yet? My editor doesn't have these new things..

Anonymous said...

this is wonderful! i love it! thanks!

Anonymous said...

my computer didn't get that... how can I get it?

Anonymous said...

I don't see any of these categories :( I want to use it for my set but I can't find it :( HEEEEELP! :(

gillian said...

Will these be added as an Embellishments category with an icon?

So it won't be necessary to keyboard in the name in the search engine?

Sheree Burlington said...

Please give us icons on the menu page. Having to search for them is a pain. BTW - from an art expression designer, a huge thanks for giving us some some seriously cool tools. Can you say Awesome?

You'd be proud to the see quality of work happening just down the hall from fashion. We rock over there. http://www.polyvore.com/cgi/set?id=32636980 A little above the fold coverage would be very validating. Oh, and a number of us are sharing our work on pinterest.com, leading the curious right back to our favorite place, Polyvore.

EMILY LIZ said...

Hey, whats the difference between
"SOMEONE" adding you as a contact
and
A fan added you as a contact

does anyone know ???

Anonymous said...

It isn't working for me.

Gorgeous news!!! Thank you Polyvore Team. I can't get the transparency tool yet, but I've just used change of colors in patterns and effects... it works! Amazing! bye bye. Martina Bonoris

insomniatic stars said...

This? This stuff was ok.

With this new homepage? "i mean dashboard."

REALLY? WHAT THE ACTUAL HECK WERE YOU THINKING?

AS IF WE WEREN'T PISSED ABOUT THE LAST CHANGE? NO, GUYS! DON'T YOU UNDERSTAND THAT WE LOVE POLYVORE AS IT WAS!!!! THIS NEW STUFF JUST CAUSES MORE UNNEEDED DRAMA AND CRAP.

STOP WITH THIS.

DO YOU REALIZE HOW MANY PEOPLE ARE MAD?

ME!!!! AND LIKE 800 OTHERS. AT LEAST.

CHANGE IT BACK.

idha said...

i've made a set using these new features. it was fab. but can you categorise them under 'Embellishments' ? some user didn't recognize the new feature and were wondering
