I'm having trouble uploading a project.
Take a look at this video tutorial on how to upload a project. If you are still having trouble, email artistsatwork@MECA.edu.
What format of images do you accept?
You can only upload .jpg .png and .giff files.
What is the maximum image size to upload?
3MB per image.
Why is my image pixelated?
You may have uploaded an image that is too small. Our system is designed to fit images 100% within the project image window. If your project image is smaller than 750px wide, it will get streched to fit within the set image window.
