Upload a photo of your crafty make!

I thought this may be of help for new users wanting to upload a picture into the Inspiration Gallery.  This can be done various ways. however, if you click Account at the top right of your screen, various options will appear.  It is worth having a look in all these sections.  It will help you to navigate your way around.

From Account:  Click Create - complete all fields

To upload the photo: 

Click Select > Click Upload (top left) - this will allow you to navigate into your own files to select the appropriate photo.

Click Select (bottom right - green button)

The first picture should now have uploaded...Upload more photos if required.

Click Save

Allow time for the photo to upload, sometimes it is a bit slow.

I hope that helps.

Hi, I think it does that when you rotate your device to take the photo.  They opening it up in a photo editor on a computer and you should be able to see which way the photo is lying.  

Dont worry to much if your photos appear sideways though..we can all turn our heads to look at themπŸ˜…πŸ˜…πŸ˜…
