I signed up several months ago and couldn't download any images. After many hours, I gave up and just decided to try it again. Same problem. How do you download images from your computer. It always tells me image unable to download. My pictures are in the Picasa program on my computer. Any advice would be welcomed. I'd really love to start my Zazzle business! Thanks so much!

Let's get our terminology straight so we're all on the same page, okay? If you're trying to DOWNLOAD images from Zazzle to your hard drive, that's one thing. If you're trying to UPLOAD images from your computer to Zazzle, that's entirely different. I'm going to assume you're talking about UPLOADING images to Zazzle, not vice versa.

The program you're using to create your images may have its own format for saving projects, but what matters is that you're saving them in a format acceptable for Zazzle to use. So if your images are stuck in Picasa (saved in a proprietary format within the program for its use only), you have to figure out how to save them as standard image files. PNG and JPEG files are standard formats that work well at Zazzle. You may need to 'export' your images as PNG or JPEG files, or use 'save as' or something similar. Post again if you need more help!

What browser are you using? Have you tried switching browsers?

You should be able to right click onto the picture and use open with: A image program. I use Paint.net no need to save anywhere else, as those sites are restrictive and many times come with Adware and junk. Also unless private people can swipe your pictures.

Download a graphic image program such as Paint.net then open then with it, and save as a jpg, gif or PNG(transparent) then you can use the Zazzle uploader to tranfer over to your shop. Make sure you resize them before to sizes needed. I download the templaters to a file under my computers "pictures" then open that in Paint and add my design to it and size it.

Paint is pretty straight forward to use. If you have any questions on how to do this write me. I will be happy to explain the basics. There are other programs free but for me Paint was a good start and less complicated than say Gimp
