Once you have made your wallet. Go to the OpenSea website and connect your Wallet. we will use the Solana blockchain which is also available on OpenSea and this gives us the option of making a NFT completely Gas-Free. Which basically means no charges at all. You will only pay 2.5% commission to OpenSea but that too when you sell your NFT. Which is fine by me.
In the OpenSea website go to the Resources button in the top. There will be a option called Gas-Free Marketplace, click on that. This will open a new page, where you have to click on the Start Creating button.
Now add your image, video, audio or 3d model which you want to convert into a NFT. Give it a nice name and fill in the description. You can also choose the supply option which means that how many copies of this NFT you want to create. Make sure that Polygon is selected in the blockchain column.
