In reading the instructions for uploads, reference is made to the tags and the "hints" link does not work. Also, is there a 'rule' for tags? Do you always have to use tags? Thank you!
Im sorry that link isnt working! This was written back in '09, and since then, I think that page has been removed. We use tags to help us and our members find certain stamp sets. There are 'rules' or rather tags we use consistently, such as 'gkd' for gina k designs and each challenge has a specific tag to use. Also, we use the name of the stamp set, for example lets say you used the stamp set Beyond Baskets by Melanie Muenchinger...the tag would look like this: beyondbaskets, melanie, gkd The name of the stamp sets should be all lowercase and smooshed together, no spaces, and have the name of the illustrator. I could have sworn we had a discussion for tags specifically...Ill go look and see if I can find...and if not, will get one wrote up!
Thank you so much! Just gonna have to make me an example and have it right by my 'puter.

Hi Joaquina! Welcome to STampTV! This discussion is only for instructions of how to upload your creations...if you read these instructions that Donna has posted, you should be able to get your creations uploaded to our gallery!

Does it matter which Gallery you pick to upload your photo for the challenges? Thanks.
Cheryl....the galleries are actually only sorted by the tags and keywords.....we copied and pasted the links into a drop down menu but the actual sorting is only done thru the tagging. So you can upload the Mixed Gallery or the GKD gallery if you used only GKD stamps or just thru your own photo gallery and the tags will determine where the card shows up. I hope that made sense! LOL
I am having the most ridiculous time trying to upload my photo's to the appropriate challenges. I followed the requirements to get there, but I am not seeing my photo on the challenge gallery if there is one.
The challeng I am going for is the Color challenge 'Cssalumnihop'. Can you show me an easier way to do this. Plus, I am not sure how to put myself on the list for this challenge either. I have a hard time understanding how to upload to certain challenges. I understand by visual learning.
Can You Help Me??

Hi Sofia! If you have uploaded your card into the gallery and used the challenge keyword then you are just fine! The only way our galleries are actually separate are by using the keywords. Then when you click on that keyword or type it in the search box in the gallery all of the cards for that challenge will show up. I hope that helps!
Do you have any photography tips for taking good pictures of our cards? Staging, background, etc. I see that the ones that are displayed on the main page are usually on a white background. Any suggestions would be helpful.
