Great compilation Abbie. However, one thing that is missing is sharpening. My understanding is yu should do your creative sharpening ((e.g. using the details tab in Lightroom), but don't do output sharpening (or just do sharpening for screen?). The amount of output sharpening (which is in the Print Menu, or export dialog box in lightroom) is dependent on the media (glossy or matte) and the size of the print.

 

Always learning something new.

You only do the sharpening you need artistically. Don't Sharpen if it's not necessary artistically

Very useful presentation. Looks like it will serve as a great resource for all. I put it at the top of my bookmarks for FAA/Pixels.

Hi Abbie,

How do we access any customer information, such as their email address for our own email list? Currently, I can only see the city and country when a customer makes a purchase.

Although we understand artists need to thank customers, or to make lists, we will not give out our customers details. If you read our Privacy Policy, http://fineartamerica.com/termsofuse.html?document=privacypolicy it says.......

Fine Art America takes precautions to ensure that member account information is kept private. We use reasonable measures to protect member information that is stored within our database, and we restrict access to member information to those employees who need access to perform their job functions, such as our customer service personnel and technical staff.

As you can see, it would be against the privacy promise we give you, yourself, to give out any other members details.

They can contact you at any time on your page, or subscribe to your newsletters

Can you have more than one domain name point to a premium site? Have one and would like to add an earlier registered domain that I lost my host for to also point and go to my premiums site on FAA.

Currently it appears you can only have one custom domain inputted?


You may only ‘point’ one. That is using the Custom Domain settings.

However you can also forward as many as you like. Log into your domain host and look for FORWARD or FORWARDING and then put in your pixels address

What are the rules for selling photos with brands in them? For example, say I have a shot of McDonald's golden arches or maybe a macro shot of my iphone. Is listing these kinds of shots for sale a no-no? I know stock photo sites prohibit it, but that's for commercial use, so not sure if there's a difference.

Second, what's a "normal" markup to add to the base prices? I just left everything at the defaults for now. Thanks for the tips!

Hey, I didn't see. What is the deal with selling away? I notice that some artists will say "Contact me to buy the original" or words to that effect.

Is FAA in for a cut of that?

And what about digital sales? If I wanted to sell a Micro Sd card with a selection of images. Is there a process to do that here? And if not, am I stepping on toes if I offer them? Do I owe FAA a piece for like a "finders fee?"

Lastly. Is it possible to sell a private portfolio collection? Say Mr. Jones has a Google stick that allows him to web surf on his TV. Can I set up a collection and provide him with the password so that ONLY he can then display those images on his tv?

Thank you.

 

Maybe I missed it in those links, but I'm still confused how to get ALL of my pieces available on ALL products, phone case, pillows etc.

I've tried multiple times with no success, so I would nee a DETAILED step by step tutorial. :(

I can't access any of the links. Either everything is in a foreign language or it says site insecure. Unfortunately, that means none of this is very helpful. :(

I am new here, so sorry for that, but I can't find any guide or Faq in this thread. How does that work?

I don't remember how to enter a URL in a discussion post and have it show up as a link. Can somebody refresh my memory? Thanks!

 

Abbie Shores

Just add the link

In discussion area that's all you need

However, if you add it in an edit, it won't link

It has to be in the original

Hello

You should enter your details before uploading .You need the admin area which we call Behind The Scenes

Go to DEFAULT SETTINGS and put in what you want there. That is called your markup area and what you add is what you would earn on a sale
Go to PAYMENT INFORMATION and fill out that (Paypal email) and if in the USA, TAX INFORMATION

Then upload work and never leave the page before clicking SUBMIT

See your name top right and click for the drop down. find your Behind the Scenes All your tools are in that area. I always suggest taking a while to just look around and see what you can do. Instructions are on each page.

See your images page on your profile
UPLOAD IMAGE is there

There are several instructions on that page if you scroll down before uploading

Or,on a premium page, go to your administrator page.
See images
Upload New Image is at the bottom of the site

Hi Abbie,

Sorry, I do not understand your answers in this thread. Apparently there are several persons looking for your "New (one year ago ?!) Faq - Tips and Links You Need", but none of us can find that link. So could you tell us where to find it ?

Thank you very much for your answer and kind regards,
Lyl

There are descriptions on most pages

I've not had time to update this thread as I meant to. I'll try to do so as soon as I can...

Please just ask in the forum by starting a new discussion, and someone will help you.

If on FAA, https://fineartamerica.com/posttopic.php?newtopic=true

If on PIXELS, https://pixels.com/posttopic.php?newtopic=true

I'm sure there is a simple answer to this question and probably has been asked before..so forgive me if this is repetitious.

I have a client who is interested in my painting an image for them.
I thought I could put it on Fine Art America so only they could see the finished product and purchase what thy wanted.
Is that possible? Please fill me in on logistics.

Much appreciate your responses.

If you'd prefer that some images and products not appear for sale on FAA / Pixels, you can hide your images by putting them in a password-protected collection. To do this:

1. Log into your account on either Fine Art America or Pixels.com (it doesn't matter which)
2. Go to your profile page where you'll see that the word "images" is underlined. The option next to it is "collections". Choose "collections" and from that page, start a new collection
3. Name it whatever you'd like, just remember to password-protect it, move all of your images into it, and click the blue "submit" arrow to save it.

Remember that whenever you add new images through our app or on our site, if you want those to be hidden as well, you'll need to add them to your password-protected collection. Note that when you're logged into your own account on our sites, you'll be able to see your images, but no one who isn't logged into your account will be able to see them as long as they remain in your password-protected collection.

Thanks for the quick response on this.

clarification: I would give the password to the customer and they would order on their own.
Proceeds would come to me as usual?
thanks
