How to share layouts in the forums

Right click on the image of your layout and choose "copy image URL."

Paste this link into the image button on your forum post.

Don't forget to adjust the width and height so that it's not too big for the forum. Anything under 700px will fit.

Don't forget to add the link too! In order to do this, while on your layout page highlight the link to your layout page at the top:

Back in your new forum comment highlight the image info you just inserted and click on the link button:
800x

Click on the insert/edit link button and in the url box paste the link to your page and click OK:

Now your layout will show in the forum comment and be linked to your gallery page.

oohhhh so easy peasy!!! smiley thanks for the mini tut

Thanks for the tutorial.

can we upload our layut in the gallery ??? and how???? i don't see a download button

Mariscrap: They're still working on the gallery... It's still in the Beta stages, so I'm sure at some point they will start adding all of us. There is a post (I think in the support forum) that you could add your name to if you want to be in the beta run. They were asking for volunteers several days ago. smiley

Mariscrap: I'm sorry... it was actually in the site updates & announcements forum. Here is the direct link to the post I was talking about, so you don't have to look for it too hard. smiley http://www.pixelscrapper.com/forum/site-updates-and-feedback/gallery-now-open-limited-users
Hope that helps!

@Shawna- you are becoming my go to person for help smiley
I followed the directions to post in the Bedouin Nights challenge and my pic came up really tiny....is that OK, know of an easy fix?

@Jodi: It doesn't look that tiny to me, but maybe you have already found your answer... You should have access to the gallery now, according to Marisa's post to you here. If you don't have access, please post here in the support forum so Jordan will see it quicker and fix yours.

I'm giving you links to the other two tutorials on things Marisa mentioned in the same post above that you would need to do to have your's included in the challenge competition. smiley

Here is a tutorial on How to Post Your Layout to the gallery, full step by step, pictures included tutorial.

Here is a tutorial on How to Tag Your Layout too... So everyone can see your submission to the challenge.

Hope this helps! Let us know if you need anything else.

oooohh...this is really helpful! and now i'll go back and fix my post!! ;D

Thanks so much for all your great tuts!! I just uploaded my first one, although it's too big (1200 pixels) so next time I'll try resizing first to about 900 or 1000. smiley

Thanks...or I would have no clue how to post... smiley

@Marisa: It won't let me edit a sticky post: smiley
but we might want to update this "How to upload images" to add this.

Right click on the image of your layout and choose "copy image URL."

Paste this link into the image button on your forum post.

Don't forget to paste the link too!

The end result will be, here's my layout:

eta to this tutorial:
One thing I realized in helping someone out with this recently is that there is some step info left out that might assist a little better. {Don't forget to paste the link too!} In order to do this, while on your layout page --

highlight the link to your layout page at the top:

come back to your post and highlight the image info you just inserted in Marisa's steps above:
800x
click on the insert/edit link button:

in the url box paste the link to your page and click OK:

And this would be your final image "linked" directly to your gallery page. smiley

Thanks Shawna! I added it in.

@Marisa: Maybe add a tiny screendump with the image url and width/height adjustment? That still stumbs a lot of newbies.

Thanks, that's sounds easy enough.

Thanks for this ... great for those not used to being involved in forums already.

Oh, wow! That's amazingly simple. Thanks for showing us.

haha, may be amazingly simple, but it worked for my first upload but not my second.
I have two links in my forum post that show my layout when you click on them, but the pic of the layout refuses to come up. Seeing as I did it right the other day - I guess I am just holding my mouth wrong LOL!

So simple - thank for the tutorial! I can't wait to enter my very first challenge

Thanks, this looks a lot easier than I thought it would be! smiley

Oh thank you, just what I was looking for! I'll give it another go!

Thank you for sharing this info.

Thank you didn't have an idea how to do this. But was so easy.
