It's so frustrating to post a photo. I think I did the same thing as I did the last time, however, this time the photo appears small and can't be enlarged. I notice this sometimes happens when someone else posts a photo. What's the correct procedure to have a photo of a garment posted?

I'm not up on the techno terms, but when I bring in only the picture itself, it comes in small. When I bring in the entire "address" so that all my Flickr pics are seen, it can be enlarged...I don't know why...

I looked at your last review and it seems to me you may have added a 'thumbnail' photo but not a 'finished garment' photo. Be aware that when you write a review there are two types of photos that you need to add. The thumbnail photo is the small photo that is seen in the gallery - you add this straight from your own computer and the PR site stores a thumbnail size copy. The second photo is your 'finished garment' photo and this is the one where you add the /http: link to wherever your photos are stored on the web.

It can be a bit confusing at first because the thumbnail photo is the one you see when you look at a review in the gallery, but when you are reading a review and click to enlarge the photo the one you see is the finished garment photo.

If you add only a thumbnail photo it will never enlarge. If you add only a finished garment photo then your review won't show in the Review Gallery, only in the list of reviews that you find under Sewing Patterns.

I would suggest you go back and edit your review, look carefully at the first part of the review and check that you have added both a thumbnail photo AND a finished garment photo. Hope this helps....I am a newbie too and it took me a couple of goes to realize this is how it works!

Edit: when you are writing your review, the finished garment photo is the one you come to first and is immediately below 'fabric used'. The thumbnail photo is next and is just below the pattern URL box.
