Thanks. I just wish that I had something to sell now. I've been so busy working outside employment I don't even get on my computer until almost bedtime. :(

I can't get through! I post my art and then it starts the upload and that's it! I'm sure there's a lot of cyber congestion. I'll keep trying.:mad:

I just read in their official postings that they've had problems throughout the evening with image uploads. Also, when I check the gallery option, they say that I didn't pick an image for it, and I know good and well that I did. I made sure of it.

UGh! Sorry about the gallery upload! Were you able to fix it? I was NOT able to get things put up today at all. Ah well. Such is life. =) Hope you get yours figured out!

I got 5 listings uploaded and when I checked them....the pictures were not there! I had done everything I was supposed to do. I think I'll try to create a page on my website and link to there for a picture. That's all I know to do. I just won't link it to the rest of my website. I don't know if I can get away with it or not, but it's worth a try.

If you have an online site where you can store jpg images....they don't have to be on a website page to link to them. They just need to be uploaded to your files.

I have a lot of images uploaded to my ArtistNation site...but they are not linked to a webpage at all. All you need to do is just do an <img src>link to the location of the file.

Also, I always use my own images in the description area and then use the free ebay pic service for the last image. You never know when one source won't be working!

I also meant to say Phooey on EBay! I didn't get the message for the free listing day until late on the 20th! and some people didn't get it at all!!

I received the free listing notice from ebay the day after! Thank goodness for ebsq! They sent me a notice and so I put up some prints and relisted a couple of paintings. So far I've got 5 bids on the prints.

I didn't have any trouble putting images on my auctions, but then I did it almost at the end of the day. Probably not as busy at that time.

Hope you all have a very Merry Christmas!
