: I'm having trouble posting my layout(s) in the Shabby Shoppe Gallery. The process seems to complete, but my layout does not show up in the gallery - what am I doing wrong?
Answer : First, THANK YOU so much for your interest in the Shabby Shoppe’s gallery - we really appreciate it and look forward to seeing your pages :o)
Second...this is generally an easy 'fix' and has everything to do with FILE SIZE :o) Anytime anyone has had issues uploading to our gallery – it is because of size of the file/page being uploaded. We have our gallery upload size set to a max of 2mb (which is quite large by gallery/industry standards)…so, if your file is larger than that, it will not complete the upload process . For posting to online galleries, most will REDUCE their layouts to about 600×600 pixels at 72dpi (screen resolution) and save as a JPG file. Most of the layouts that we upload are under 400k – so I think you’ll see that it will be quite easy to get it under the 2mb limit :o) It’s just a preventive measure to ensure that no one maliciously uploads very large files to eat up our drive space :o). If you would, please double check your layout file size. If over the 2 meg limit, you would just need to re-size it until you get below the threshold (which we will probably be changing to 1mb in the near future)!
Also, SP created a tutorial for resizing your layouts for web:

We hope this helps to answer any uploading questions you may have...GOOD LUCK and again, thanks for posting to the Shoppe's Gallery - we LOOOOOVE seeing what you guys create :o)
