In Topic: Uploading layouts?

06 November 2016 - 08:26 AM

Ooh, one more tip for posting LOs...designers love to see how their products are being used. Most of us search the Gallery for these LOs by searching for our last name and our product initials...this is a combination of the first letter of the designer's first name, followed by the first two letters in the designer's last name. (In my case, I search for JZI.)


This only works if the designer's name or initials appears in the description part of the layout. Products listed in EXIF properties don't show up in searches.

You can use Belle's technique, above. That way, you're credits are viewable in the EXIF properties when someone looks at your layout. Or, you could list them in the box when you upload your LO.


Here's how to upload a LO to the Gallery:

Click "Upload New Image" on the Gallery main page. You can choose to start a new album, or select an album you already have. These will be created if you select "Start New Album," and you can just create one album for all of your LOs, or you can create categories for your LOs. Or you can upload it to a category (like a challenge gallery, if your LO is for a challenge), or a general Gallery folder under a specific theme -- like Weddings, Kids & Families, etc.


After you make your selection, you will get to step 2, which is where you locate your image on your computer, select it, and hit OK. Then you will want to select "Review and Publish," not just "Upload." This will take you to the final screen where you can give your LO a title, add tags if you want (this is not necessary), and add a description. In the description box is where you can list your supplies, background information on your LO (if you want), and/or input any journaling you have on your LO. This also is not necessary, but I appreciate this because often the print on the LO is too small to read, and journaling helps tell your story.


Once you finish this, you can select "Finish & Publish," and you're done!


I look forward to seeing your creations in the gallery!

It is often nice to list supplies in case someone likes something you used, but isn't strictly required. It does make it easier to find those products in the store. You may link your ScrapGirls products right to the boutique if you want, or you can just list them. It is OK to use products from other designers, but linking to other stores is not OK. You can list the kit name and designer in cases like that.

Congratulations on your new grandson! I really like this layout. Like Carla, I would suggest making the flowers a bit smaller and maybe clustering the flowers closer together in the upper right corner. You could balance this off by putting a ribbon and two tiny accent flowers under/over the flower in the lower left. Or, leave it. Lovely page!! L)
