Hi and my apologies I am very new to this site!
I wish to enter an LO into the Swirly Hues Challenge, but have not idea how to do it. I've been through the Technical Forum posts, but haven't picked up any clues there apart from making sure my picture is 600 x 600. I have hovered around in the gallery wondering if something would be obvious. I am not even sure how to set up my own gallery.
Can someone explain how to to do this please
PS This is such a great site and I am leaing so much!September 28, 2011 at 7:14 pm #137862
Hi Jennie! Thanks so much for entering the challenge!
The first thing you have to do is log into the gallery. If you have not done this before you will need to register. this can be done in the gallery.
One you get logged in you will want to upload your photo.
Once you click on Upload File you will be able to choose and album. You will choose SwirlyHues.
If you are still having problems please let me know!! Can't wait to see your page!! 🙂September 28, 2011 at 7:22 pm #137863
I have tried to login to the gallery, but it does not recognise my useame and password. Is this the same useame and password I have set up in settings? I tried to register again, but it tells me that I am already registered, so I've obviously done something right!

LOL I love it when I find that I did something right!
Try clearing your inteet cache and then go back to the gallery and log in. My gallery log in is actually different from from forum log in. I don't remember why it is different, or if it even makes a difference.
Try clearing your cache first. If that doesn't work I would register using a different user name and see if that works. Oh, I forgot to ask you…..do you use Google Chrome? We find that users who use Google Chrome have more problems with the forum and the gallery.September 28, 2011 at 8:02 pm #137865
Sorry Lisa, still not working.
I've cleared my inteet cache and tried to log in but no joy. I tried to register under another name, but it won't accept it as another user is already using the email address – presumably me! So I tried the link forgot passowrd but when I type my email address it says I am unrecognised?
I also made sure I had activated my account. Do I have to wait to be accepted? I wonder if that is the problem?
I am using Google Chrome, as unfortunately I had alot of problems accessing other sites and have had to change to Google Chrome to correct those problems.
Can you think of any other way of getting around this?

I will email Krissy and see if she can see if anything is going on. I can't see what is going on behind the scenes.
Have you tried Firefox/Mozilla? That is what I use and *knocking on wood* have had few issues. I'll get back to you as soon as I can after I hear from Krissy.
I'm so bummed that you are having so many problems. 🙁September 28, 2011 at 10:28 pm #137867
Hi Jennie, It looks as though the activation email that was sent to you when you first registered was never opened? There is an activation link inside that email that activates your account. I went in and manually activated it, so please try to log in again and let me know if you're able! Thanks so much!September 29, 2011 at 7:59 am #137868September 29, 2011 at 10:32 am #137869
YAY!!!!!!! Thanks Krissy!
Can't wait to jump over and see your page Jennie! Tanks for hanging in there with us. 🙂 ((hugs))September 30, 2011 at 3:36 pm #137870
Well I think I have put my picture in the right gallery, but I can't seem to locate it when I access the Swirlyhues Gallery, although if I click on my name it is an uploaded file and someone has commented, so perhaps others can see it and not me. ????
I don't seem to manage to be able to get my profile picture to show up either, but again perhaps I don't see it but others do ?
(Told you I was new to this …………….!!!!!)September 30, 2011 at 3:46 pm #137871
LOL Try hitting the refresh button. We have a very quirky gallery and it likes for you to hit refresh…a lot.September 30, 2011 at 5:13 pm #137872
