Hey there, I am aspiring to produce a number of what I think could be rather clever designs for submission to Tee Fury and perhaps other sites like this one. I actually submitted my first design last Sunday August 21, I tried to follow the directions, however, reducing the art to a mere 640 pixel width really took a lot of the magic out of my artwork. When I view the image on a preview page it doesn't seem to do my original piece justice. Are initial submissions by artists merely low res bitmaps intended to give the curators a basic idea? Once a design is chosen, is a request made for a higher quality file? How long should I wait on any given submission before I may attempt to submit that art elsewhere?

    The 640 width is just a preview for the curators to assess the design. They request your original Hi-Res version if accepted.

    If you feel your preview doesn't do it justice, keep a small section at the bottom of the image free for a 'detail' inset.

    Acceptance can be upto 4-5 weeks, you'd usually have heard by the end of the third week. But not always.

    There's nothing stopping you submitting your art elsewhere but watch out because some of those 'elsewheres' have insane terms and conditions. Also only two places I know compete with the sales volume of Teefury and therefore certain places will limit your earnings potential. So don't waste your best designs on the smaller operations unless the big operators pass.

    Thanks for the tips. The detail inset will come in handy I'm sure

    Can anyone tell me an easy trick for posting images in the forum?

    Exchange the box brackets [ ] for angle brackets in the following example...

    [img src="http://www.websitename/imagename.jpg"]

    So whereever your image is located, pop it between the " " marks.

    Well, I managed to get the command right anyway. Guess I should figure out another way to get my images online besides facebook, 'cause that didn't work very well.

    Hey! I'm learning all kinds of new tricks. Thanks Chuffy!

    I have a website now too

    I think you'll have to upload the picture to a site like Photobucket rather than from Facebook. As it is right now, it looks like you're trying to put a link to a page in the html code as an image and that's why it's not working (even though it is a page with an image on it, it's not a direct link to the image).

    To post a link to a web page that's not a picture, like thishref>, do the same thing you would do for an image except instead of typing "img" use "a href". Like this: [a href=https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10150267426187143.327213.553462142&l=dca5f7cf9a&type=1]Whatever you want the clickable text to say[/a href] but replace the [ ] brackets with brackets, the same way you would do for an image, as Chuffy said. Hope this helps :)

    Oops, except you don't have to have the "href" in the second bracket haha!

    that's a good tip too, thanks.

    As it turns out I went and built myself a little google site and linked to the image there. I posted the image I submitted a week ago Sunday.

    Some feedback would be awesome!
