Uploading a Layout to the Gallery (Written version) Updated Oct'21


Vicki Robinson has created a fabulous video to cover this topic if you would prefer to watch that HERE.

This a written version for those that would prefer to print out and refer back to it when needed. :)

1. On the Gallery screen click the Add Layout button (top right corner) or the link on the Navigation toolbar.


Go ahead and select the gallery you want to use first and then click the Add Layout button.

--> Please note that at the moment you can only upload to ONE gallery.<--

2. Select the gallery you want to upload to (if you haven’t done this already).

-- By default your layout will always appear in “Your content” no matter what other gallery/category you select to upload your layout to. --

If your layout is for a monthly challenge, then select the relevant challenge # gallery ie. Challenge 1, 2 or 3 etc. Or if it is for a Designer’s challenge then select the relevant Designer’s gallery.


3. Click the Upload File button on the next screen. Find your layout on your computer and select it. *Max dimensions for a layout to upload to the gallery is: 600px x 600px and 1Mb in size - your layout needs to be resized in your software before uploading to the gallery.


4. Then click the Save button.

5. On the next screen you need to enter:
a. - The Title field; is automatically filled out using the layout name, but you can change it here by highlighting and then typing in your layout name.
b. - Description field; this area can be used to comment about why you created the layout or if it was made for a challenge, or even to share a summary of the steps you took to create it.
c. - Credits list; your credits can go in this area, please always credit the products you have used along with the designer’s name, including non Oscraps products and designers.

**If you copy and paste the Oscraps product link from the store into this area, the program will automatically insert the name of the product and designer, however, the linking is entirely optional for our members.**


When filled out it will look similar to this:


6. Click the Save button to complete your upload.

In the gallery your layout will now look similar to this example with all the information you entered shown below your layout image:


*Note: Our designers are gradually switching out coded page titles to be more SEO friendly - meaning they are more likely to come up when people search in Google or Bing. So, for now you will see a mixture of Product Name links and Product Name links that also display the shop category, the product name and the designer name.

Once you have uploaded your layout you can edit it by using the Edit link at the bottom of your gallery post.

Click on your layout to open, then use the Edit link below your post. You will return to the original upload screen where you can edit your text, add links etc. When the multiple categories/galleries function is up and running soon you will also be able to add your layout to other galleries if you wish to, we will let you know when this function is available.

Use the Delete link to delete your layout if you need to.


PLEASE NOTE: Entering a product store link is entirely optional, but it does help our fellow scrappy friends to find products more easily and quickly.

1. Open the store in another tab and open the product/s you used for your layout.

2. For each product, click on the URL link at the top of your browser and copy.


3. Go back to your Credits list for your layout and paste the link.

As always, if you have any questions about this guide, then please feel free to ask here in this thread.
