Default How to upload layout to the Gallery

Before you begin your uploading process, you want to make sure that your layout is sized properly. You want it to be 72dpi and dimensions should be 600x600. (If you scrap using a size of 11x8.5, just make your width 600 and it should proportionately change your height appropriately.) Also... be sure to check that your layout is 250k or lower in size.

If your layout is any larger than the sizes mentioned above, once you click "Process", it will appear as if it is uploading, but once it finishes your layout will seem to disapper and you will not see it in the gallery. This simply means that your layout was too large and you should resize before attempting to upload again.

Once your layout is sized properly, follow these steps:

First............................................. .................................................. .................................




Then.............................................. .................................................. ................................




Scroll down and then.............................................. .................................................. ...........




Next.............................................. .................................................. .................................




Last.............................................. .................................................. .................................




YAAAAAAY!!!!......... you have just posted your layout and it should now appear in the gallery!



You can then click on the thumbnail of your layout to ensure that it looks the way you want it to. If you see a typo in your description...


First............................................. .................................................. ..................................




Then.............................................. .................................................. .................................



That's it!

Choosing a Designer's Gallery
When choosing a specific designer's gallery to post to, only choose one. There is a 5-layout limit per 24 hours, and if you post one layout to 3 different designer's galleries, that will count as 3 layouts. An alternative would be to post it to the designer's gallery whose products are featured most on your layout. Then, under "keywords" you can type in the other designer's names.

If your layout will not post...
If you click submit to post your layout and it seems to just disappear and does not show up in the gallery, this usually means that your layout size is too large. You will need to resize your layout to the following specifications:
-72 dpi
-no larger than 600x600
-make sure the actual size of your file is 200kb or lower.

For more specific instructions on resizing your layouts in Photoshop, you can see #6 in the following tutorial on my blog that includes screenshots for you.
