FACEBOOK

Facebook is a pain in the bleep bleep proverbial

The thing is that they demand all your apps refresh and resubmit approval every so often. That means us artists setups just stop working

and because everyone puts them on at different times, they are all kicked off at different times, and there is absolutely NO way to let people know, because FAA don't know

If you delete and replace as per my instructions, it DOES work unless Facebook are just having one of their 'we aint going to post anyone's art at present because too many people have already' days

If they just give you a number, I CAN SORT THAT yayyyy... just give me the number

Otherwise you just have to wait patiently til they take the lock off

TO KICK

Please log into FAA and disable both FAA apps

Then, remove the app from your Facebook Pages

FACEBOOK PROFILE

Go to your main homepage and see APPS on the left menu.
Delete the FINE ART AMERICA APP

FACEBOOK PAGE

On your FACEBOOK page, go to EDIT PAGE
On the edit page see the tab for APPS
Delete the FINE ART AMERICA APP

YOUR SITE HERE

Then, Make sure you are logged into Facebook as you, not as your page, and come back to your BEHIND THE SCENES | Facebook Application and enable the application again, Middle one (FB personal profile) and then the right one (FB page) If it does not popup, use a different browser and make sure your popup blocker is not enabled, or any ad blockers

The profile side must be enabled as well as the page but, you may turn off postings to that page in your default settings, once the application is all working

Crikey :-) I am so glad it helps!! Terry...no I dont mind one little bit LOL Thank you :-)

 

Added Tips from Christine on resizing of images, or choice of software.
Software found to be good at reducing large digital images for use on FAA without losing clarity,
what is the best image format to start off with before reduction, jpg , png, tiff etc.

 

Thank you :-)

Added the great post 'Questions for professional Oil Painters'

 

Add the How to transport artwork thread

 

I have added pastel painting protection

 

ah well, with your help we can keep this near :-)

 

Sure is, and hopefully this will help stop the double posting we get so that the discussions are scattered :-)

 
 

Added the post about titles and using symbols (the original one not the new one)

 

Added about RAW files. Will be sectioning this into better categories soon so people can find things easier.

 

Bump Added Greeting Cards

Ok....

People are always asking the same questions again and again, so I am making this post and perhaps regulars would bookmark it to send new members to? Would .......................

What about about like how to cancel POD if not interesting in 30 day trial?

 

email accounts at fineartamerica.com and they will cancel it. Make sure you let them know what you want cancelled.
If you want to close your account at FAA totally, even the free one, email the same address (subject: account cancellation) and they will take everything off for you.

This is on the actual site FAQ page at http://fineartamerica.com/frequentlyaskedquestions.html which is for all the gallery stuff

Recently I decided to add the FAA watermark. I set it in the default and when I submit new work, the watermark is showing up. Today as I was submitting images to different groups, I clicked on the box to add the watermark and then hitting submit. The watermark is not showing up. I have cleared my cache and have hit F5 several times and nothing.

For a long time I check the graphs 1 hour. My photos are never shown there, although they have in an hour 30-60 visitors. What can that be. I have checked this over several days, but never a photo of me is shown there. The following link has an audience of 60 visitors.

Do you have to sell all products ? I don't want to sell on t-shirts . Is there anyway to remove t-shirts ?

 

No, leave the markup areas blank. Nothing, not even a space.

I have an issue with emails.

I am on both Pixels & FAA. All my emails come through from FAA when I am logged onto Pixels, the email links all point to FAA and thus don't work as I am not logged in on FAA.

Is there a way to get all my email notifications from Pixels instead of FAA?

Thanks in advance for any help.

Hi Isabella------Just a thought about the coffee mugs (by the way I love them) ---some of my images, especially flowers, would work well if used horizontal instead of my vertical posting. Since the customer has that option on the phone cases. I thought it might be possible to have the same option for the mugs.
Thanks for all your hard work!!!!! Phyllis :)

Hi,

Regarding the excellent FAQ for New Members, i.e. "New Members - Links To Frequently Asked Questions And Help" - I thought that post was possibly edited with new material added on occasion - is that correct? If so. is there any way to highlight or date the newly-added material? Thanks, Marty V.

This is FB. It is always better to upload a small copy of the work manually and add your link.

What does "L/F/T" or any combination of these mean when people add it to their comments?

 

Gene Healy

13 Days Ago

@ Shawn Einerson: L = Like; F = Favourite; T likely means shared to Twitter which is sometimes indicated as Tw. P would be Pinterest & G+ would be Google+.

Hope that helps.

How do I edit a Gallery - I want to change the image that is appearing as the 'front' image? So long since I set them up I have forgotten how to do it.

It's OK. I found it - silly me
