I think I will play along, I have my photos picked now off to find a couple papers! I always loved these before I was a WC member so why not??? I just won't peek ahead at the tasks and it will still be super FUN and I will get more layouts done this month!

I'm new to posting at SG and need a bit of clarification on this game. Do we just post the finished layouts each week or do we post each step? Where do I find the posting rules? Is the maximum size 600x600 pixels in 72 ppi? Do we need to post store codes for the products used or just the designers and their products? I know I'm being rather lazy about this since I can go look and see what others have done.

Hi Xana

 

There will be certain days you have to post a screenshot of you layout or if the instructions say REQUIREMENT. You post those in this thread. No need to post the products until you upload you layout to the gallery.

This will be how you post your layout while working on it if it is required:

 

 

Be sure you have saved your layout at a PSD file, then save as a JPEG and upload as an attachment to your post in this thread as follows:

1. Save your images at 4 x 4 inches, (288 x 288 pixels) at 72 dpi

2. In full editor, click in the box under "Attachments", navigate to your layout image on your computer, then upload and click on "Attach This File"

3. Then click the "add to post" button.

Whew, task 2 done! All of a sudden I couldn't find the photos I wanted to use, but I must have skipped by them when I looked in the photo album.

I had my papers and photos ready, but my pc is down. Some kind of read/write or harddrive thing. So until I can get another one, it looks as if I'm out for the game.good luck, everyone.

I started yesterday with papers and picked the photos when my PC said "out of memory". Have a bit of "cleaning" to do when I get home tonight. Much of my stuff is supposed to be on the EHD, not the PC...

As long as you have two visible papers, two photos, and both photos are framed somehow, it's okay... ;)

I'm with you Dot! I'm having commitment problems here, I'm so used to getting three quarters of the way through a layout only to realise that it's exactly what I don't want! In any case Step 3 is completed.
