Can You Choose A Different File For Each Type Of Product?
Hello to my fellow artists. I'm new to FAA and just uploaded my first image. After viewing the products, I noticed that some items would look better without the white rectangular background showing: t-shirts, pouches, yoga mats for example. There is a change image option next to each item... does that mean I can upload a png file for t-shirts for example while using the jpg format for most of my other items? Hope this makes sense... I would appreciate any help I can get. I thought of trying it to see what would happen, but I don't want to mess up my post if it's not possible.
Jessica (I'm probably wrong) but if you click under the image it just gives you a new upload screen. I do this quite often instead of going to the images screen to select the upload new image. If it works the way you said then I'm in trouble.
Or do you mean from the edit screen, upload from there which replaces the uploaded current image with a new image removing the original image (once the system refreshes)...
I'm just trying to clarify since I have considered the "upload new image" underneath my images to be nothing more than a shortcut to uploading a new image...
If I'm wrong, I will have screwed up a bunch of my images over the past couple of years...
As Jessica and Gill said, you can edit each of the non-print products (cards, shirts, pillows, tapestries etc.). Everywhere you see the button that says "customize product" one of the options after you click that button is to upload a new image.
You don't have to upload every single time. If you have a PNG for instance that you want to apply to multiple products, once you've added it to one product, you'll see it as an option on the other products after. But you can upload a separate image for every product that has that option if you so choose. It won't change the original image you uploaded for art prints, framed prints, etc.
A note if you ever do replace the main image at the top of the screen (unless something has recently changed), then you lose all of the edits you did on the individual products. So you can't replace the main print image without also replacing the rest of them.
Bradford - FYI, you can upload either PNG or JPG for the product images. PNG is probably most likely use, but, for instance, sometimes I crop an image file to 5x7 for the card if I'm having a hard time getting it lined up, etc. I use a JPG for that. Anyway, it can be whichever format suits your purpose.
Here is an example of replacing a JPEG file with a PNG transparent file. The original file is still there. Both files will be listed for all products but you can select which image you want for each product
