How to show your DIY project on Reddit
We know Redditors love to show their DIY projects. That's why we developed features that display your project in the best light.
Here is how you do it:
Take photos: Good photos are important. That does not mean at all you need to be a professional photographer, you can just grab your phone and get good results. The Ambytion page is designed to make your project look good in any case. Just make sure your items are reasonably sharp, are centered and stand out against the background.
Describe what you did: Photos are great, but by adding some descriptions to at least some of your photos you'll help people understand what you did. Many people show Howtos and describe each step so other people can follow and create the same object. But others just show their final item from different angles and that is perfectly fine too.
Publish your page: is everything ready? Did you double check the order of photos with the arrange tool? Then it is time to publish your project, simply by pressing the publish button on the toolbar at the right. After a few seconds a notification pops up which gives you the link to your page. Easy!
Pick a subreddit: There are several DIY subreddits out there. The most important ones would be r/woodworking for wood related projects, r/crafts for sewing, knitting etc. r/leathercraft for leather, r/arduino and r/raspberrypi for electronic tinkering projects, and r/DIY of course. You can cross-submit to several subreddits. Here is a more complete list of DIY related subreddits.
