    Thanks so much, the instructions were so easy to follow, well explained!! I do have one question though, I’ve noticed that some people have added pictures to their description that are on an angle, do you know how to do this?

  • Those images were most likely created using Photo software,
    using 2 layers,1 for the background and 1 for the image with the background image larger than the image to be rotated “Rotate the image layer” flatten image upload to RB and use the link to that image.I made one awhile ago

    Thank you for this tutorial! Till now I always found the same stuff I knew already, but never got answers to my questions; here it goes a bit further. Does this markup language have a name? Can I find the complete instructions somewhere on the web?

  • I believe it is called textile, but not all of it is accepted on redbubble.
    For my redbubble tutorials I used this site here mostly for reference. I’ve been through all the different formatting listed there to create the two tutorials that are about formatting on RB.
