OMG... This is always an intimidating process for me and on another board I tried to follow what several people were throwing at me to do and was TOTALLY LOST! This is a fantastic tutorial video! THANK YOU SO MUCH for saving me/us from tearing out hair and screaming or giving up totally!
I do not know how long the video is but I am having issues watching it bc my net is really bad this week. Can anyone please tell me how step by step in words. I would love to post my layouts. Thank you to anyone that does and I really appreciate it :3:
If you go to the Gallery, you will see an Upload Photos link near the top and on the right side inside of a green bar. You must be logged in first though. Select this and another window will open that looks like this below:

Here is where you can select multiple galleries to upload to. Fill in all the information in the boxes. If you've used a Go Digital Scrapbooking kit, there's a box for you to put the kit link in there. Hit "Process" and your image will upload. Make sure it's 72 dpi and about 600 x 600 and you should have no problems uploading.
Hope this helps.
THANK you so very much :)
I think I did it correctly but I cannot find the Gallery????
Yeah.....I see your layout in the gallery.

Welcome to GDS!
I uploaded, followed directions, didn't see it come up in "Galleries", like it showed in the video. So where did it go?
Now I have to add, in order to prepare my layout, since I use Corel Draw X4 for creating my scrapbook pages, cards, etc., I also use PSE9, but only for the editing part, as I'm a newbie to this program too. I saved my file as a png, instead of jpg. I found to get it ready for websize, I really had to cut it down in size to get it just a tad under 150kb's using my Corel Draw Photo-Paint program. I know, I need to learn how to do all this in PSE9. Also it took me over an hour to prepare my page (actually a 5x7 card I scrapped) for "web-size".
Any help would be appreciated, thank you.
Oops, "now" I see my card lo in the gallery, guess I didn't wait long enough for it to load there. I would of put this note underneath the note I posted before (few mins ago) but can't find it here, and this is where I posted the previous note. Geez, this is so confusing to me. It's been around 6 years since I joined a forum and lost all knowledge when doing it back then. So, I'm learning all over again.
I finished my last msg, posted it, and it brought me back here, and goodness sakes, here is my previous note! <huge blush> lol. Learn and live.
