Can anyone help me with this
I’m completely new to this so I’m desperate for finding help

Uploading the NFT metadata to Solana will cost a certain amount of SOL, and this message is saying that you don’t have enough.

I would recommend testing on the Devnet if possible before deploying to the Solana mainnet, just to see how much it cost and whether or not you can afford the fees.

This failed instruction is saying that it requires 16.7274 SOL, which is currently worth $2,445. And that might not be the only fees, though it is probably the majority of it.
