Happily,  I found while back in EDIT mode, that I could click on "DELETE" as my curser was on the photo.

Accident or what, give it a try.

Help.....Not sure how I got signed up to receive follow up posts, but I don't want to follow up on them, but will read them at my convenience on the site.  How do I get OFF of receiving follow ups to posts?

I did not get a reply indicating that my email sent 9-12-10for the entry in the Artisan Search 2011 was received. I was concerned so i sent the information again in a different format but still, no reply.  Does this mean my entry has not been received?  If so, any tips on how to get the email sent correctly? Only 1.75 hours to the deadline!

SLM523, look at the last follow up post you received, there are unsubscribe directions in grey text at the bottom.

Hi Geoff,

We got your submission. I'm not sure why the email didn't come through. We have heard that some of the reply emails are being caught by spam filters. 

You're all set!

good Luck!

I tried to upload photos for the 2011 Artisan Search following your directions, but they would not attach.  Do you know if the website was experiencing problems?

I too have been unable to upload photos, today.  Unfortunately, time is up.

Double check the size of your photos if they are too large they exceed the file limit. I've been checking the site periodically throughout the day and we don't seem to be having any problems. I just went through the process to double check and it was working.

Make sure to email us your entry today--even if you're still experiencing uploading difficulties. 

I'm guessing the issue is file size, try to make the photos 72 dpi.

Good Luck!

Hi, this is my 1st time goining.....ANYTHING, and I really wanted to enter a challenge, however I am not able to download my work.  My husband is in the I. T. world of computers, so I tried about 3-4 different  P,C's, routers, whatever and still was unable to download, it wouldnt recognize my browser for some reason.  ( I wanted to cry, because I finally got the courage to share my work ) Any suggestions?  I love your web-site and everybody seems to bee super nice.  I hope my work will be shown soon.
