Preparing Your Image For Online Viewing

Prior to uploading your photo or artwork it is recommended that you resize it to 700 pixels in width. This is optional (but recommended). Your upload should be a .jpg or .gif file.

Software is available (for free) that allows you to open your work, resize it, and save it for online posting.

After you have converted your image click here to post artwork, click here to post a photo, or click here to create a book of work. If the site informs you that the file size is too large save the file again as a .jpg and lower the quality of the image.

The site will prompt you for the image to post. Just follow the on-screen instructions to select it from your computer.
