WGSN Boutique - User guide: Using WGSN images

WGSN has an unrivalled fashion image repository, containing more than 10 million images and dating back to 1998. To help you view and use these images in a number of flexible ways, we have built some unique tools into our technology. Here’s how to use them.

Viewing image galleries

Many of our images are organised into galleries, such as our catwalk shows. These can be viewed as easily scrollable pages by clicking on the back and forward arrows beneath the gallery. The gallery size has been designed to fit the window of most standard browser sizes. Should you wish to view all images in a gallery on one page, simply click the ‘view all’ function next to the arrows.

Saving images to My WGSN

Any image on our site can be saved to your personal workspace, My WGSN, where you can organise them into folders or ‘collections’. To save an image, simply roll over it and a heart icon will appear. Click on the heart to save the image. Alternatively, open the image viewer (you can also view image galleries picture-by-picture from this function) and click on the heart in the top-left corner.

Zoom and crop

Our power zoom and crop functionality enables you to home in on minute image details and save that particular detail of an image. As soon as you open an image, this function is enabled. Your mouse acts as a crop tool, so simply roll it over the image, right click and drag to highlight the area of interest. Once you’re happy, simply click the heart and that part of the image will be saved to My WGSN.

Downloading images

You can download images to your desktop for use in presentations, look books and even your website. All WGSN catwalk, street shot and trade show images are yours to use. Other images may be subject to copyright. To download an image, open it and click on the arrow icon at the top left. To choose a different resolution, click on the ‘i’ icon and select your preferred resolution from the links shown.
