  • Once all the photographs are uploaded you will be given the option to EDIT UPLOAD PHOTOGRAPHS
  • TITLE – Delete any digital-camera generated numbers or file names and replace with a NAME for your Mosaic
  • DESCRIPTION – List the dimensions of the mosaic and if you wish - a short description of the background to you creating this mosaic
  • TAGS – words describing the mosaic, i.e. landscape, mirror, cross, abstract etc. and also materials. Separate each tag word with a comma. Write double words as one eg. stainedglass.  We would like to feature different themes of mosaics and instead of scrolling through all photographs; we could just sort them on the TAGS. If you do not “TAG” your photo’s they will not be included in the feature.

When you have finished the descriptions of each of the photo’s you have loaded you will find an option to CREATE AN ALBUM at the bottom of the page

  • This option is most handy to “group” your photographs together as in “My early work” or “Functional Mosaics”
  • Complete the Description of the Album or add the photographs to a previous album you may have created.
  • We tend to feature ALBUMS on the front page of the network instead of individual photographs which gives viewers a greater variety to view instead of 6/8 photo’s from the same artist.
  • Click SAVE to ensure all your hard work is uploaded and ready to be viewed.
