I want to make sure that I'm giving appropriate credit. I watched the video on the keyword and store item web address part so I know to do that, but should I also list that same info under the photo description and credit section? It's seems a bit redundant (sp?), but I want to do it properly. Also, do I need to do an accumulative listing when I post Step 2, 3, etc? How do you all keep track of this? Again, I want to give proper credit where I should....and what about the non-GDS stuff? How should I list that and where?
Sorry, sooooo many questions....
For the purpose of this challenge, I would just list the credits on the finished layout. If there are a lot of them, and not from GDS designers, it's ok to list the credits in the description, just no links to outside sites ie: paper 2 from kit Blah by XYZ, glitter swirl from kit Blah by ABC. If using a kit from a GDS designer, that's where you'd use the information from the videos on this site.
There is a place within your program (PS or PSE) under properties to list things. Another way to do it is to put a layer at the bottom of your layer stack and name it credits.. then list the credits there and just keep it invisible until you need to add things to it. Then just copy and paste it when you need it. :) I'm sure there are heaps of other handy suggestions others have too. Pick one you like and have fun! :)
Just a Tweek on Bright Eyes comment re: progressive rules.. it states "Use of at least 50% GDS Designer products is encouraged and very much appreciated!" ... it doesn't say you *have to*.
