    Just wanted to say Hello and ask a question.

    Hi, I'm new to Designer Digitals and just posted my first photo today. Everyone has been so nice. I've enjoyed looking at everyones's pages and buying supplies in the DD store. I do have a question. I tried to upload a second page, and it looks like it's going to load, but it doesn't show up. I've done this several times, and am so afraid it's going to show up like 15 times, and I would be so embarrassed. What am I doing wrong? Thanks for any help. I look forward to being a part of this community. Pam O'Neal

    Hi Pam,
    Welcome to DD
    If you would like to upload a second page you just need to do a separate post.
    (I did the same thing when I started out )

    Sometimes I accidentally try to upload a very large file - like my original photoshop file. That starts uploading and takes too long. Your image you upload only needs to be 700x700 pixels. I resize it for web in Photoshop before uploading (it's in the file menu)
    Camera: Canon 7D, Olympus OM-D E-M5, Olympus TG2 (point and shoot)
    Lenses (for the 7D): Tamron F2.8 28-75mm, Tamron 70-300mm f/4-5.6 and Sigma 50mm f/1.4
    Software: CS6.0, LightRoom 5, ACDSee 14
    Platform: PC

    yes, what esther said! if it seems to take forever you most likely tried to upload too large of a file. You should save a copy of your layout [not the original] and resize to 72dpi 700 pixels x 700 pixels and save as a .jpg. HTH!
