Normally, creating a large collection of NFTs generated from layers and layers of traits takes an in-house developer team and costs an expensive amount of money. With Kairos, you can launch your generative NFT collection, with a custom, beautifully designed minting website, all without writing a single line of code. And, it's free until you decide to launch your collection.
Export your files from your favorite program like Photoshop, Illustrator, or Figma. The layers should be the same size to maintain positioning when layered on top of each other. For the highest quality, we recommend the layers to be at least 2000px x 2000px. For a walkthrough on how to export your layers from these different programs, see our batch exporting guide.
Organize your layers into folders. Each folder will be a single trait, like background, base, eyes, hair, accessories, etc. In each folder should be the different options for a single trait.
On the Kairos Creator dashboard, create a new collection, name it, and enter your artwork canvas size.
Drag in your folders to upload them. You can drag multiple folders at once. Once it’s uploaded, you can see your trait folders and layers on the left and a preview of your generated NFT on the right.
Kairos’s editor has some powerful functionality to customize your collection:
Specify how many NFTs you want to generate and click on the gear icon to generate your collection.
Re-generate an NFT: If there’s an NFT that you don’t like, hover over the NFT and click the re-generate button to generate a different NFT. The single NFT will be generated based on the same rarity trait and rules you had set in the editor.
Reserve an NFT: Click on the wallet icon to reserve a generated NFT. The NFT will be reserved and stored in your wallet when your collection goes live. This is a great to save NFTs to use for a giveaway or to airdrop to early supporters and influencers.
