Uploading Your Creation - Tips and Tricks
Below you can find information on how to upload your creations to our website.
We prefer that you upload your own videos to YouTube, and then send us the link so that we can embed your video on our site. The following are some articles that should help get you started on YouTube:
- Getting Started With YouTube
- Need help setting up a YouTube account?
- Uploading Videos
- Editing and Managing your Videos
Once your video is on YouTube, to submit it to our site you'll need to copy the link to your video and paste it into our form. You can find this in the address bar at the top of your browser while viewing your video. It should be in this format: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xxxxxxxx, where xxxxxxxx is your own unique video ID.
Visual Art / Photos
For any images, all you need to do is make sure that they are either in JPG or PNG format, and preferably no larger than 2MB, although it shouldn't need to be any larger than 200KB. Need to resize your image? Why not use Pixlr...
For a poem, ideally you would supply both a PDF of the poem and the raw text. To create a PDF, first create a word document with your poem in it, select Save As, and then set PDF as the filetype.
To share your music creations on this website, you'll first need a Soundcloud account. Why Soundcloud? It has become the industry standard for sharing music. Don't fret though! It is easy to use and hopefully these articles will help you get set up:
When sharing your Soundcloud track with us, we need a very specific bit of code that is really easy to find.
- Go to your track
- Click on 'Share'
- Copy the 'Embed Code' (it's the second option)
Paste this into our form (it should start with <iframe...), and away you go!
You can upload a file in the following formats: doc, docx, htm, html, pdf, ppt, pptx, png, txt, jpg.
