How to Put Your Photos on Redbubble

A great friend of mine has just joined RB and is having problems uploading his first photo. I had a quick look round to see if I could find him a ‘How to do it’ and could not track one down – So……

….. I have set out my step-by-step guide for anyone who needs a hand with their first upload – please feel free to let me know if the information is already available – and do shout up if I’ve got it wrong in any way – I’m just fresh on ‘the bubble’ myself! x


Log in (and Sign in) on the Redbubble My Bubble Sign-in page. (You will need to have signed up for your own free account before you can do this).

This takes you into your own overview page – where it says “Welcome ‘Your Name’”.

On the right-hand side near the top there is a list of ‘Things you can do’.

The second one down is ‘Upload your Work’ – Click on this.

This brings you to the ‘Upload & Sell Your Work’ page.

Click on ‘Add an Image’

You are now on the ‘Add Your Image to Redbubble’ page.

Right under the words ‘Choose a JPG, GIF or PNG image from your computer’ – there is a blank box with the word ‘Browse’ in a box next to it.

Click on Browse

This will take you into a list of the files on your computer – find your photo file from where it is stored on you computer (probably will be in the ‘My Pictures’ Folder unless you use another Photo Editing/Storage Program).

Click on the photo file so it shows in the File Name box at the bottom of the list – then on the word ‘Open’ in the box next to it.

You should see that the blank box next to ‘Browse’ now has a file name in it (usually starts with C:\ ).

Next go down to the blank box below ‘Title’ – give your photo a name if you wish.

You can also fill in the big box below ‘Description’ if you want to put more information on about the photo.

The blank box below the word ‘Tags’ can be filled in to help people find you photo when they are searching on Redbubble – so if it is a cat photo for example, you could just put the word Cat there – you can leave this blank if you are unsure what to put.

Next you can add you photo to the group you belong to – i.e. Cat Love – just tick the box next to Cat Love on the list.

Next there is the ‘Set Product options’ – it is set on ‘This work is not for sale’ – you can change it to ‘Make this work available to purchase’ – this will then bring up a list of types of ways you can sell your photo as – if you are in doubt you can tick them all – Redbubble will sort out which types of items they are suitable to make.

Finally there is ‘Set publication options’
This lets you decide who can see your photo – so leave it on ‘Allow anyone to view’ – the last box ‘This content is not safe for workplace viewing’ needs to be ticked if your phot contains anything unsuitable for family viewing.

Last – click on the ‘Add Image to Redbubble’ box and you are done. It may take some time to upload – depends on your internet connection speed and how busy Redbubble is.

Now you should see your photo on a new page – it is on ‘the bubble’ for everyone to enjoy!

Don’t forget you can also go into ‘Edit’ at anytime and change the title, description, or choose to make it available for sale if you haven’t already. If you do make any changes though – don’t forget to click the ‘Save Changes’ button at the bottom of the page.

I hope this helps! x
