Uploading is the first step. Promotion is the next step. Promote your art everywhere you can think of.


I recommend reading this article. It is very informative


Hi! I am also new to this website. Hope I can promote my artworks here 😊

Best to promote your work outside this website!


Continue to build your portfolio. Numbers and presence are important.

Now is the time to copy and paste some URL's out to your social media sites. Stir up interest. Don't be shy because I guarantee you that your competition is not.

Join some of the promotional groups here on FAA. Make sure to read the rules of engagement first.

Have fun.

Good Fortunes to you.

ok here goes

You should really enter your details before uploading. You need the admin area which we call Behind The Scenes. All the tools are in that area. I always suggest taking a while to just look around and see what can be done. Instructions are on each page.

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.

If you choose not to sell something, leave the space for markup totally blank. Not even a space.

You cannot choose between canvas, metal, acrylic, framed or paper prints etc. Only the products or all the prints

PAYMENT INFORMATION and fill out that (Paypal email) and if in the USA,

Then go here https://fineartamerica.com/controlpanel/updateartwork.html?newartwork=true

Do not take too long and NEVER leave the page before finishing and clicking on SUBMIT

You will find this useful https://fineartamerica.com/showmessages.php?messageid=4839599 Easy to read (hopefully) Lots of reading but worth it. Especially if you read it before you start uploading

IMPORTANT - Please note you will not be in the search until you have had a headshot and 10 images put up for a week

When you are pricing the work or editing it you can see non-household items are on https://pixels.com
AND premium Pixels sites only.

Just log in with the same details

A premium account is the best place to be be sending everyone, as it is just yours with no other artists on it

Just choose which you want to share and work on

Uploading images on the site is half of the work. The other half is marketing. the site is a platform for artists and photographers to run their own businesses. The artists that are successful on the site do outside marketing to promote their work and we offer a handful of different marketing tools to help you e.g. Shopping Cart Widget, Email Campaign, etc. So I would definitely take a look at these features (found 'Behind the Scenes') to help get some sort of marketing plan in action.

Being an active member on the site is also a plus - we have a very large community of artists and photographers. 'Favouriting' images, leaving comments, participating in discussion forums, etc., are big ways to get your work noticed! I would also look into uploading more images.

We have over 7 million images listed on the site with any you have loaded, Rachelle and Jason, so if there is no marketing and promotion done on your end, your images will get lost in the mix. If you follow all of these suggestions you will appear higher and more often in the search engine.

We cannot tell why some sell and why some do not so we cannot give that kind of advice. However, here are some great posts on the forum and elsewhere about marketing your work. Please log in to view some of them
