Once you've resized your layout in web quality,
you're ready to upload to the DSP gallery to share with others!
1. Resize Layout
For instructions on Resizing Layouts for the Web,
click to see
these University Quick Classes and find your program.
2. Upload Image
After resizing, visit www.digitalscrapbookplace.com
and click The Place>Gallery. Once you register
for the site, you can log in and click on the Upload Image
option between Logout and Profile, or visit www.digitalscrapbookplace.com/gallery/uploadphoto.php
That will open up the first Upload dialog box.
Choose the appropriate Gallery in the drop down
menu, usually DSP Member Gallery.
Click the Browse button for the first image slot
(you can upload multiple images at once, but do not have to use
all the boxes to just upload one at a time).
The Browse button will open the Choose File dialog
box in your operating system where you will browse to the folder
and select the web quality jpg image. (To view Thumbnails in Windows,
click the drop down menu and choose Thumbnails.)
Click Yes for email notification as often members
leave comments on old layouts long after you originally post them
and wouldn't check otherwise.
Click Upload/Submit to open the final upload
screen where you type all the specific image information.
3. Image Description
In this screen, enter the image information that will appear
beneath it in the gallery. All information is optional, but sharing
a little about your techniques and credits will help others use
your layout for inspiration and help members feel more sense of
community with you as a scrapper. If you ever want to submit layouts
for publication, using these fields to record relevant information
while it's still fresh makes it easily accessible for the publishers'
Category: change this if you chose the wrong
one in the previous screen, or just leave it if correct.
Title: choose something catchy and short, anything
over 22 characters will be truncated by the PhotoPost software.
Description: restrict this to technical and
scrapbooking information. Can add URL links here
Note: Anything you need to add to the
description of the experience depicted in the layout should be
added as journaling to the layout itself! Often scrappers use
the description box to talk about the photo or layout subjects
and don't add that journaling to the page. Especially if journaling
is difficult for you, this is a good way to find out what you'd
like to share about the layout. If needed, go back and add this
precious information to the actual layout, or create a journaling
page to match it.
Keywords: any one word descriptions of the layout
are added here. They become clickable links other scrappers can
use to quickly find other layouts with the same words appearing
in the description or keywords sections.
Program Used: software type and version, and
any added plugins or supplementary software like Eye Candy or
Fonts Used: keep the main layout open to quickly
see what fonts you used as other scrappers need font names and
frequently go download fonts they like on layouts
Credits: any premade elements, inspiration from
other scrappers, or anything to help others recreate your work and ethically
give credit to original work
Click Process Files to complete uploading and
go see your layout in the gallery! The message "No more photos
found" will appear, so go back to the gallery to view the

Congratulations on uploading your layout and sharing your work
with the DSP scrapbooking community!
