Default help loading cards

I know I've seen this thread before but I can't find it now.
I bet some nice people will help me out...

I'm trying to post some cards. I did one and it said it was accepted, but now I can't find it.
I'm not a dopey computer user, but I'm a little stumped!

Thanks.
Edie

Edie first of all it will be in your gallery...
www.splitcoaststampers.com/go/edie32

is the direct link to your gallery
Secondly, there is nothing there...are you sure it was up on the site? You may need to reupload it...
Also for future use, you can type into the address bar any users name after www.splitcoaststampers.com/go/ and it will give you their gallery...so just add /go/username to the home web address...

I'm very new to posting also! To find my posts, I just go to the gallery page and click on 'my gallery'--it's in the top purple bar--that way you don't have to search in all of the different cattegories to find all of your posts!

Don't know if that helps or not............

I'm sure, but I'll try again.
This is frustrating. Not only didn't it work but I'm nervous to post crafts. Maybe it's a sign that it didn't work???

We're all our worst critics.

Thanks for your help.
I'll go try again.

Hi, Edie - Good pointers already on getting to your gallery!
I've not received any uploads from you yet. Can you try again, please? I'll be waiting!

I do have an error!
It's "not an acceptable format".

Any new suggestions?

1. Give your FILE a unique name BEFORE YOU UPLOAD IT. When you scan or take a picture of your creation, change the file name on your computer to something unique rather than a number like 1.jpg, or scan001.jpg. When files have the same generic name as others (which is the case a LOT lately), they will get removed when we scan for duplicate posts. So. . .try something like your username_petalprints1.jpg and yours won't get deleted!

2. Please CROP your picture to showcase your creation! I've re-done several uploads to focus on the card rather than the white backdrop you get when you scan. It takes a little bit of time, but the end result is that it's easier for people to appreciate the work you've done!

3. Only upload JPG FILES. Anything else will jam up your upload queue, and Daven will have to go in and fix it while you wait.

4. Watch your FILE SIZE. Max size for the gallery is 640x480 pixels, but the gallery software will take care of that for you if you are unsure about reducing yourself. Mainly what you get through doing it yourself is shorter upload time (because the files are smaller when reduced). By tweaking the images yourself you also have to opportunity to do any color correction, cropping etc. that you want.

5. When you upload your creation, PUT THE FILE IN A SPECIFIC GALLERY. Anything you upload will automatically be loaded into your Member Gallery. We have galleries by set, by technique, by type of creation (anything but a card, scrapbooking, events, stampin' spaces, etc). . . and if there is not a gallery that fits, leave it in your member gallery. We'll move it if we see a place for it.

6. Fill out the Stamps, Ink, Paper, Technique, Accessories Fields! The more complete your information the easier it is for others to find your work.

WHEW! If you'd like to read more on how you can make the gallery experience better, read this article http:////www.splitcoaststampers.com/...p?id=7_0_1_0_C

Hope this helps!

make sure it's .jpg (jpeg) format. if your software allows a quality setting when saving, make it 60%.

Can I edit/update the description of the cards after they've been loaded?

I forgot something now that I can see the card online!
