    Our Artist in Residence answers your questions
    Q: Debbie asks: "I know I can edit and change text in my posts in my Gallery but I wondered: is it possible to swap out a picture for a new one, or is the only option to delete the original post and repost everything?"
    A: You can swap out a photo very easily! Open your gallery entry. Beneath the photo you'll see the box containing your card description. In the bottom right corner of that box, click "Edit Photo". A new screen will open, showing a thumbnail of your card, and the fields that you entered when you uploaded. Below the thumbnail, you'll read "Select new image or leave blank to use current one." In the column to the right is a button you can click to choose a new file from your device. Save your changes, and you're done! It may take up to 15 minutes for the new image to sync, but you can make sure it's changed over by peeking into the edit screen again. If you see the new thumbnail there, you're golden!
    Feedback From Past Tutorials
    Taneka is ready to tackle the Contact Paper Transfer technique: "I have just recently started doing stained glass and was looking for another way to make reusable patterns; I currently print them onto my Cricut, but this will be a life saver! Thanks!!"
