Thread: Dad New To Digital Scrapping

  1. Dad New To Digital Scrapping

    Hello Ladies,

    My name is Bryan and I am new to digital scrapbooking. My main hobby: an avid photographer. My wife has been encouraging me to scrap the view point of my photographs for several years now and I have finally given in. I've been tooling through the gallery, and what inspiration. Not really knowing exactly what to scrap... my wife suggested that I 1) scrap my man things (things that I know, my view point using my dry sense of humor) and 2) start with some challenges to get the process started... so here I am.

    I have two layouts done and have been having trouble uploading them to the galleries... I was wondering if there was someone that could help me. After I upload... I get a screen that says (upload successful) but then as it pops me back to my photos... there is nothing there and it reads (this category does not contain any images). If anyone could suggest any tricks, that would be great.

    First of all - welcome!! Can't wait to see what you've come up with Sounds like the pages might be too big to upload?? Try changing the size of the pages you're trying to share and see if that helps....

    More info about resizing and such here: http://www.designerdigitals.com/digi...-question.html

  3. Welcome! Sounds like Jess has pointed you in the right direction. Looking forward to seeing your pages!

    Great to have you here and looking forward to seeing your layouts in the gallery!

    PS that happens when you forget to resize your layouts to websize (as we have ALL done at some point!) so I think Jess has put you right there :-)

    Welcome Bryan! You join an exclusive group of men who post here occasionally (Bill and Snibber). Any photo that you want to tell a story about is a great subject for a scrap page. I look forward to seeing your images and stories about your "man things" and reading you humorous journaling!

    Hi Bryan! Welcome to DD - can't wait to see your layouts in the gallery - I'm sure the resizing should work for you! We love it when a man joins our community - gives us a chance to see life from a male perspective for a change - Bravo!

    Bryan or Richard, welcome! What also may be happening is that you have reached your daily limit for uploads in a 24 hour period. Not a day, rather 24 hours so you need to keep track of you upload time. Attempts count as well as actual uploads. I ran into this when I was first new and had more than one failed attempt! Way more!

    Katie, am I correct with this??

    Welcome Bryan! Looking forward to seeing your photography/pages in the gallery. I always love to see the perspective from a man's point of view.

    My cousin used to do all the scrapping and his wife would do most of the journaling.... he was the artist in the family....

    Well if your avatar is any indication of things to come, I'm sure we're in for a treat!! Love it!

  28. Good Morning Ladies!!

    Thank you all for such a warm welcome! Looking forward to this new journey! As I told my wife... Now that I am 57, I'm giving up exercising and trying something new! Ok, well in all honesty, I've never been an exerciser... but I think that may be a great subject for a page... a picture of
    'our' (ok really mine) old treadmill stored in the corner of our garage!!

    Thanks for the help regarding uploading... I'll re-size and give it a shot!
