  2. Click on Specify File button
  3. Choose the location of the file
  4. Click Save
  5. Enter the project name and description

Third, Tagging....the important part!

  1. Click on Select Tags button - a window will open
  2. Check each tag that applies to your project, then click OK
  3. Those tags will populate in the tags box
  4. Add any additional tags you think best describes the project
  5. Preview your project if you'd like, then
  6. Click on Save if you're done
  7. Click on Save and Upload More if you're planning to add multiple projects

Congratulations! Now your images are part of your gallery, and can also be searched in the Idea Galleries.


Searching the Galleries
