Q. Does my client need a login to access Hue & Stripe?

A. No! We've made it as simple as possible for clients to access their online wardrobes. All they need is the link that you send them using the paper airplane button in the Closet sidebar. That link is a permalink that never changes - no matter how many times you update their Finds or Closet items.

They can open that link on any device. We recommend you have them bookmark it on their computer and add it to their smartphone home screen for fast access.

Q. Can I search by more than 1 color?

A. Indeed, you can! (In fact, we recommend it. The more colors you select, the more results you'll see.) Click the button below to watch a quick demo of how to do a multi-color search on the apparel search page:

Simply click on any of the colors you are looking for in the color grid, and then click the 'Search Now' button.

To clear your selections and start over, simply click 'Clear Selections' underneath the 'Search Now' button.

Q. My image uploads are going slowly. How can I speed things up?

A: If your images are uploading slowly, then it is likely due to one or both of these factors:

  1. Slow internet connection speeds
  2. Large filesizes

Photos taken from high-end mobile phones can weigh in at over 6MB each! (Way too large for web use.) While Hue & Stripe automatically resizes your photos once they're uploaded, the upload itself can be very slow if you have 50 photos at 5-6MB each (that's 300MB!).

We recommend resizing your photos before upload if you would like to speed up your upload process:

For Windows users, we recommend downloading the appropriate image resizing script for your operating system above. You will then be able to shrink the photos for web upload.

Windows: Photo Resize Script » Download this script!

For Mac users, 'Preview' (a free program already included in Mac OS X) can do the job. Follow the tutorial above!

Mac: Photo Resize Tutorial » Follow this tutorial!

We recommend resizing your photos between 800px - 1300px or 250kb in size.

Q. Can I add things from around the web to a 'Finds' section?

A: Yes you can, using the Hue & Stripe bookmarklet!

Simply drag this link:

✂ Clip It! Drag this button onto your bookmarks toolbar (or favorites toolbar)

to your browser's bookmarks bar. Then click the bookmark that is created when you are on a page you'd like to link to from your client's or Catalog's 'Finds' section. Voila!
