    Q: Kathie Ann asked: "Can I upload to other company galleries? When I've uploaded in the past, I only have the option to upload into SU! galleries?"

    A: Company galleries are all about the keywords. To find out which keywords we use, go to the company gallery and check the top of the screen (see screen shot below). You will find the keywords listed there. Now upload your image into your member gallery. Add one of the keywords for the company to the keyword section along with any other keywords for holidays or occasions, and then finish your upload as usual.

    A good rule of thumb for keywords is to omit any spaces or punctuation from company names. For instance, the keyword for Crafty Secrets would be craftysecrets.

    Ginger has a suggestion for Flower Soft: "My friend/mentor/ enabler used her Copic air-brush system to color the ivory Flower Soft. I bought cheap Christmas cards at Dollar Tree and mixed the two greens and covered the trees with it and used Stickles for the garland. It made beautiful cards."
