View Full Version : How to add a link in a thread to your layout in the gallery

02-12-2008, 07:01 AM
Hi! Many times you may find the need to add a link in a forum thread to something you uploaded to our gallery. Most often, you might want to do this to show participation in a challenge or contest.

So we've created a video to walk you step by step how to do it!


If you have any troubles doing this, just post in this thread and we'll be happy to help!

On a side note, we do not allow linking to pages or layouts or anything to other digiscrapping sites, so please only link to layouts in our Gallery.

Great idea on the videos. Sometimes having a visual really gives you an "ah ha" moment as opposed to just reading words. I know when I first started, things were so overwhelming, I was afraid to hit a button in case I did the wrong thing. This should go a long way to helping "newbies".

Yes, this is really informative... I remember trying to figure this out too and think videos are so helpful!

Thanks! I haven't scrapped in a year and I'm rusty. This was a great refresher!

I am new at this and am trying to show the layout prompt but cannot seem to find where the "properties are. Each time I right click on my layout there is no option for properties. I tried to copy and paste it but I do not see it on the page with the other submissions. This looks so simple that I must be missing something. I've reviewed the video several times and am still stuck. Any suggestions would be appreciated.:no: Thank You

What options do you get when you right click?

It depends on what version of Internet Explorer you are using, or if you are on a Mac, it would be different too.

Do you get "Copy Image Location". If you do, click that. It is a simplified method to the step in the video.

I'm working from google Chrome and not explorer.. this video doesn't help me because I don't have properties when I right click on my picture.. I have the following options only..
Copy Image URL
Copy Image
Copy Link Address
Can someone help me out please? I have no problem posting it to the gallery, but when I try to put it in the challenge thread itself, it doesn't work :(

Have two windows open... your picture in your gallery and the thread you are posting to.
Right click on your picture and "copy URL" than go to the thread and click on the "picture frame" icon and choose from URL (un-click the retrieve remote file and reference locally box) than paste your URL there. Now go back to your gallery and up top in the address bar copy that URL. Go back to the thread and highlight the picture than click on the "globe with link" and paste the address there. (This links the picture to the gallery so we could leave love.)

Hope that answers your question.

And welcome to GDS!!!
