View Full Version : Gallery Guidelines?

06-06-2009, 09:46 PM
Sorry to jump right in with a newbie question. I've looked around a bit and I haven't managed to find the gallery guidelines. I'm sure they are somewhere obvious and I'm just missing them. Can anyone link me up? Or summarize? What are the filesize limits and any other rules regarding LOs. Can I post pages using products made by designers at other stores? How about linking?

Thanks in advance, I appreciate it!

Someone please correct me if I'm wrong... But,

Size your photos to 600x600 (I'm not positive on MB size though)

If your posting layouts that don't use GingerScraps products, there is a section in the gallery for non-gingerscraps layouts.

While proper credits are always required and appreciated, I don't believe that GingerScraps allows for outside product links.

Gotcha. Thanks so much!

LOs must be less than 150kb

well unless something has changed, it even states on the non ginger scraps gallery info: Post your Non-GingerScraps Layouts here- Make sure to give proper credits- Links OK
so to me that is saying that links are ok to post for outside stores as long as they are in that specific gallery.. if thats not the case, i would think that someone needs to take that little tidbit out of there, because that seems a bit confusing, telling people you can post links and then saying you cant..

Ryan - Jillian wasn't sure, that's why she said "correct me if I'm wrong" - She didn't say you can't post links. She said "I don't believe that Gingerscraps allows outside links" - it leaves room for correction in case she was mistaken.

Becca,for now, outside links are still allowed.

thanks misty :) thats why i was all confused, i was thinking that i missed something and didnt get the memo.. lol
so when i went and checked and it said it was ok, i was thinking, well maybe they dont anymore but maybe they didnt take down that message or something lol.. thanks again for the clarification!! :)

Ryan - no, thank you for pointing it out :) I didn't even see that Becca asked that. I had just skimmed the post.

Thanks for clearing that up Misty! Now. . . in case anyone checks this thread again. . . can I use outside products for challenges? I hope so, since I already did, but I will take down my page if that's not permitted.

(I know every forum has its own set of rules and I just want to be sure to follow them. I promise I'm not trying to stir up trouble!)

Becca - yes you may :) Ginger has this as an open forum. Just make sure you credit the designers in your description

06-08-2009, 01:49 AM
Yes ma'am! I try to be very careful to always credit the designers properly. Goodness knows I could never create anything half as beautiful and the designers deserve all the credit and more!

Thanks again!

Yes, any designer is just fine. I have all my faves in my gallery along with GS products :)

LOs must be less than 150kb

This is not enforced by the gallery at all. Is it supposed to be? It is currently set without any limit on file size.
