FTD Online Portfolio
After you submit your online application to NC State, you will be provided a link to the portfolio and essay submission portal.
All images, including patterns, designs, photographs, and drawings, must be uploaded in .JPG format. Most cameras are able to take pictures in . JPG format.
Here are some tips for taking quality photos of your work:
- Have good lighting when you take a pictures of your work. Taking it on a sunny day outside is a good idea as long as you aren’t getting shadows or direct sun in the images. Inside pictures without good lighting can appear grainy.
- Your work should be the main focal point of the picture and should not be surrounded by a lot of background.
- The reviewer should be able to see your work in full frame.
Review your files carefully before uploading them to the submission portal.
Please DO NOT email any portfolio images to anyone in the Wilson College of Textiles or in the Office of Undergraduate Admissions.
