problem editing images?

Has anyone else noticed that since the weekend if you try to edit some images there is a message “we can’t load the image. Please try and replace it”?
All I was trying to do was add an image to a new group, but this doesn’t seem to be possible any more. I just want to know if this is a common problem of just me. I seems to be affecting most if not all my images.

Less a "shop", more a "jumble sale"

I don’t have a problem with making changes that could improve sales, BUT, I would have to say the latest modification by RedBubble to put the “shop” on top of the portfolio page is the worst change they have implemented since I joined in 2008. For some time now, there has been a steady dimunution of the features to allow visitors to focus on an individual artists portfolio (e.g. the very annoying removal of the scroll buttons). There has also been a bloating of pages (such as the pages of “features” above the activity feed, which we are now forced to scroll through). And now the ugly, clunky “shop”. All that work setting up collections and presenting our work in what we believe is the best sequence is now obscured by rows of “products” that don’t necessarily show off our work in the best …

Exhibition of my work, Impressioni del Lago Trasimeno

Impressioni del Lago Trasimeno is an exhibition of my work at Palazzo Baldeschi, Paciano (PG), Umbria, Italy from 25th June to 25th September 2016

The exhibition features photographs from the beautiful Lago Trasimeno area in Umbria. They are my impressions of the places, people and nature of this paradise on Earth. This opening will be staged as part of a series of events in Paciano that weekend to celebrate “borghi romantici”.

If you are in the area, please drop by. Click on the image below to go to the event FaceBook page:

The exhibition features a slideshow, which can be previewed by clicking on the image below:

Some work from the exhibition is available on RedBubble in a collection, which can be seen by clicking on the link below:

Scrolling arrows removed

You may, or may not, have noticed, but 2 days ago RedBubble removed the scrolling navigation arrows from your product previews (without telling anyone as far as I’m aware). They confirmed this to me by email this morning after a previous email implied it was my browser that was at fault.…

These arrows were unobtrusive and intuitive in use. They allowed you to scroll through the body of an artist’s work from any point without having to return to the profile page. The “more work” section at the bottom of the page is of course RedBubble’s selection and is not necessarily in sequence. If the work has many comments (which the better work may have) then you have to scroll through all of those to get to the “more work” option, which is a complete pain. To go back to the profile page means you ei

scroll buttons

Has anyone else noticed that the scroll buttons (left and right) of an individual image are missing? If so, I think this is bad news as it will make it more difficult for a visitor to stay on your work and scroll through. What do you think?

Sale!

Many thanks to the kind customer who bought some cards of Street tease featuring the model Radka today.

Much appreciated
