Do credits expire?
No. Credits do not expire. However, once a credit is used to post a job, that job will expire after 30 days on the site.

The image should be at least 657 pixels wide and 260 pixels tall, but the system will automatically resize your file to fit as long as long as it’s wide enough and less than 2 MB. The image should be 72-dpi in a GIF, JPG or PNG file.
