For those that use twitter for marketing, I have a question - how do you get the images to show up in the tweet? Like on FB, if you post the URL of the pixels page for a given image, it automatically displays the image on the facebook post. Twitter doesn't seem to do that - I have to manually upload a photo as an attachment to the tweet.
The only way I am aware of is by doing so within the edit functions by selecting "post to twitter" then hitting "submit". But note this method will announce it as a new image in the post. Using the twitter public button on the image's page doesn't present previews on FAA, pixel or your private account pixel site.Another way, I sometimes create my own posts on twitter by adding a saved smaller version of the original image with a page link in the body of text.
@ Abbie I got everything to this point, "That image is cropped. If you click on the word Preview instead (just above) then you get the uncropped version" I upload to Twitter but I still got the cropped image. Help please
Yes, post and promote your OWN images by making a tiny image either via a screen shot from here or making a small one in Photoshop and going to Twitter and posting that image, include the link from FAA or your Artist Website page right directly on Twitter.
BUT ... and it's a big but ...if you're like me and when you find something you love from another artist that you want to promote for THEM, the twitter button is much more convenient. Mike is right. Hit the Twitter button on the other artist's image page (this is assuming the other artist allows you to promote on Twitter, btw!!!). Now, what happens is the info in the block that comes up will include the main address from Fine Art America first. Take your mouse and highlight the Fine Art America address and hit your delete button (sorry FAA!). That will leave just the address for the art of your friend that you want to promote for them. IF ... if if if ... Twitter is in the mood and the stars and sun and tides align ... the little image that shows up will be the image for the artwork that you want the world to see. For some reason, after about the 3rd promotion in a row, though, Twitter quits letting us see the pretty picture. At least it does that to me.
