As with anything new we expect there to be a lot of questions. Here are a few FAQ's that may help you out. If you still have any questions feel free to leave them in the comments below and I'll respond to each of them! I'd also love to hear your feedback on the new section. Will you be checking it out for Inspiration and/or adding your projects?
How do I submit a photo?
Please login to your Blitsy account and visit the Discover tab at the top of the website. On the right hand side of the page there is a SUBMIT button that you will need to click on. After clicking this button, a pop-up will appear with all the necessary information for you to submit your photo.
How do I get my submission accepted?
All photos must have good lighting, sharpness, cropping and be at least 500px x 500px. Each photo must also link to an accompanying blog post that goes into more detail about the project / photo. No submission can link to another commerce website. Photos must not include any text or watermarks. Lastly, all photos must be related to crafting.
Why has my submission been rejected?
The following is a list of reasons that your submission may have been rejected:
1. The lighting in your photo is a little too dim.
2. The photo quality is too low.
3. Your description is not accurate or contains spelling mistakes.
4. The project is not consistent with Blitsy community content.
5. The link you provided is not correct or is linked to commerce.
How will I know if my submission has been accepted or rejected?
You will receive an email notification if your submission has been accepted or rejected. If your submission has been rejected, we will provide a reason why. You may also view accepted, pending, and rejected submissions directly from the website.
Can I resubmit a rejected submission?
Yes, we encourage you to take our feedback regarding your submission and make the necessary improvements before resubmitting for approval.
Why do I see red lines when attempting to upload a photo?
This means this particular section of your submission is incomplete. An error message indicating what is missing or incomplete will be displayed.
How long is your approval process?
We typically moderate submissions within 24-48 hours.
How large should my photos be?
All photos must be at least 500px x 500px.
What is a tag?
A tag is a keyword that helps describe your photo. It is highly encouraged that you tag each photo as it provides a searchable reference to your photo from our site. This will help more users find your photos and drive more traffic directly to your blog.
How do I change my Display Name?
All you need to do is visit the Profile section from within the My Account section. Here you will be able to edit your Display Name by simply changing the characters and hitting save.
How do i learn more about a photo that I'm interested in?
Click on a photo and you will be taken to a pop-up with more information. Once in the pop-up, you can click on the larger version of the photo and be taken directly to the blogger's original post. The original post will include a much more detailed explanation of the project displayed in the photo.
