How to upload a layout to the gallery

0 Comments | Leave a Comment

There are actually two ways you can upload to the gallery, and with this tutorial, we are going to show you how to do both.

Step 1 – Log in or create your Gotta Pixel Forum & Gallery account

The first thing that you have to have is a Gotta Pixel forum account. If you have already registered, go ahead and log into your account and head on over to the Gotta Pixel Gallery. If you haven’t registered yet, here is a quick tutorial on how!

Step 2 – Prepare your digital scrapbooking layouts

First, you want to prepare your layouts to be uploaded to the gallery. Layouts should be 600 x 600 pixels and no more than 200kb in size. Though we can’t give you step by step for every single software on how to resize your layouts, you can always post in the forum and one of our Pixel Praiser team members will know how to resize or at least be able to direct you to where that information is.

Step 3 – Uploading just one Digital Scrapbooking Layout

If you have one layout that you want to upload, we have a quick upload that you can utilize!

On the right side of the gallery, you will find an area that reads”Quick Upload a Layout”.

How to upload to our gallery

  • Pick a category that relates most to your image(s).  If you don’t have a special one needed, just leave it as the default Members Gallery. This will automatically put the layout in your personal gallery!
  • Choose a file from your hard drive.  Digital Scrapbook layouts that you add to your gallery must be 600 x 600 or smaller and under 120K in size.
  • Enter a title
  • Enter a Description.
  • Click Upload/Submit.

You will now be on a second screen that reads “PhotoPost Add Photos” at the top. Here you can do the following:

  • Customize the digital scrapbook title.
  • Customize your description of your layout.
  • Add keywords like the designers name, Gotta Pixel product SKU, colors in the digital scrapbook layout, theme, etc.
  • Add credits for the layout
  • What program you used to create your digital scrapbook layout.
  • What fonts you may have used in your digital scrapbook layout.
  • Add a link the product you used to create your digital scrapbook layout.  Gotta Pixel is an semi-open gallery.  What this means is that any layout you upload must contain at least one current Gotta Pixel designer’s products be in your layout.  Read more about our Gallery Terms of Use here.  Linking to outside websites are not allowed and will be removed by our Praiser team.

When you’re all done customizing this screen, click the Process button and your layouts will upload! You’re all done!

Step 4 – Uploading multiple Digital Scrapbooking Layouts

You can access the featured that allows you to upload multiple digital scrapbook layouts in two different places in the gallery.

The first is in the top navigation bar for the gallery.  This bar includes Home, My Favorites, Search, My Albums, My Profile, My Photos and Upload Photos.

The other is in the right side bar, at the very top.

As soon as you click on one of these methods, it will take you to the upload page.  Pick a category that relates most to your image(s).  If you don’t have a special one needed, just leave it as the default Members Gallery. This will automatically put the layout in your personal gallery!  If you are uploading more than one layout, pick the category that fits the majority of your layouts. You can change the category on the next screen.

After you have picked your category, click the browse button to upload you layout(s). You are allowed to upload 6 images per day to the gallery.

Input the title to the first layout. You can customize the titles for additional layouts in the next screen. The same goes with the description and keywords.

The other two important things to decide on this screen is if you want to be notified by email when other users post a comment to your digital scrapbooking layout. You can set this to yes and an email will be sent to you to let you know. You can also turn off the option for comments all together if you want.

Once you have all these figured out, click the Upload/Submit button!

You will now be on a second screen that reads “PhotoPost Add Photos” at the top. Here you can do the following:

  • Customize the digital scrapbook title.
  • Customize your description of your layout.
  • Add keywords like the designers name, Gotta Pixel product SKU, colors in the digital scrapbook layout, theme, etc.
  • Add credits for the layout
  • What program you used to create your digital scrapbook layout.
  • What fonts you may have used in your digital scrapbook layout.
  • Add a link the product you used to create your digital scrapbook layout.  Gotta Pixel is an semi-open gallery.  What this means is that any layout you upload must contain at least one current Gotta Pixel designer’s products be in your layout.  Read more about our Gallery Terms of Use here.  Linking to outside websites are not allowed and will be removed by our Praiser team.
