http://f1.pg.photos.yahoo.com/ph/jerome_sherrod/detail?.dir=/5e40&.dnm=e1b3.jpg

I also did this one at 12 years old
http://f1.pg.photos.yahoo.com/ph/jerome_sherrod/detail?.dir=/5e40&.dnm=3f74.jpg

Hello Jerome- try this:

See the blue bar up top with My WC!. WC Marketplace, and all on it? Click the one that says "Quick Links". In the drop down menu, click "Image Uploader" and navigate to the file you wish to upload. Copy the url given, and then close and come back here anad paste it in the reply window. When you post, it will show as an image to everyone- but there are restrictions:

The image has to be no larger than 600 x 500 pixels. So make sure you resize at 72dpi to those dimensions.

Looking forward to your work, and if'n your nice, I'll have Preston holler at you for me via phone...

Hi Jerome - I seem to be late to the welcoming party - but WELCOME Jerome!

Jerome, you upload your photos to Wet Canvas - underneath this description box, there is a "Additional Options" menu - click on the "Manage Attachments" button and it will instruct you what to do from there. Before you try to upload, you will have to resize your photos to WC's size restrictions - 600 pixels on the longest side, with a resolution of 72.

If you need more help, holler at Preston - :evil:

I can't get to your pictures on Yahoo, Jerome... so try using the uploader--or go down below and under 'attach files' just click on Manage Attachments. Either will work...

LOL, I always cringe when we're trying to show newbies how to upload their work...took me forever to find everything and get my pics the right size, etc. even tho I've done web work for years! It's easy enough once you use it awhile, but....
