I\'m a watercolor artist and a recent new member just beginning to upload some pictures for sale. What I\'ve noticed is that when I post high resolution images of my smallish paintings they end up being available in much larger sizes than the originals. Is there a reasonably easy way to make sure to maintain the quality without having them offered in oversize versions?
For example: This image is an approximate 9\"x12\" painting but at 1908x2801 uploaded pixels will allow prints of 20\"x30\".
Perhaps this isn\'t even a problem but I\'d appreciate hearing any thoughts you might have.
Thanks in advance.
I have run in to issues as far as print quality when selling a print that was larger than the original, and have almost lost a sale, so now I too try not to sell prints larger than the original just to be safe. As Beth said, FAA will only sell image sizes that you have provided your mark-up price on. If you leave the price blank on larger sizes when uploading, those sizes will not be offered.
Welcome to FAA hope you like it here as much as I do!!
Margaret and Shana,
Thanks to you both for responding to my question. I posted a couple of pictures so I could order cards to send out to friends. They turned out nice enough that I've become interested in joining FAA as a seller but the idea that someone might actually buy an enormous print of a small painting scared me. Thanks so much for letting me know that doesn't have to happen and also that I don't have to be fiddling with file sizes here at home. I love to draw and paint but tech is absolutely not my thing.
