For step-by-step directions, and general gallery information, visit the Gallery FAQ .
Q. I'm trying to upload to the gallery, and it says the upload is complete, but there's nothing there?
There are two common reasons for uploads to fail....first reason, your file is larger than the system will accept....the maximum dimensions 1000x1000 pixels. The second reason is that your file is within the parameters, but is large enough that it isn't being fully uploaded within the time the system allows.....this is *quite* often the case if you're on a dial-up connection.
In either case, you need to make your image smaller with your preferred graphics software. Directions are available in our Resources area for several popular programs:

You may also need to delete cookies and temporary internet files from your internet browser:
For Internet Explorer - go to Tools, Internet options, and click on the Delete Files and Delete Cookies buttons. Deleting files can take a bit - be patient!
For Mozilla - go to Tools, Options, and click on the Privacy icon. Click on Clear next to Cookies and Cache. Again, this can take a bit.
Q. I'm trying to upload to the gallery, and it's not finishing - it just hangs up.
Review the above info on resizing your picture.
Q. Help! I uploaded my layout, and there are duplicates! How do I get rid of the extras?
Duplicate layouts are easy to fix, although it's not obvious.
First, go to the duplicate layout you would like to delete. Click on Edit Image - it's below the picture, towards the center.
Partway down the screen, you'll see a checkbox for: If you want to delete this image completely, check this box. Check the box, and click on Submit Changes at the bottom.
If the layouts are true duplicates, this will delete the thumbnail and possibly additional views for the "other" copies. In that case, go to the layout that remains, and click on Edit Image. Towards the middle of the page, you'll see a Browse button. Click on this, find the file on your computer, and click on it then click OK. Again, Submit Changes.
