Isn't Pixels and Fine Art America one and the same? When I joined many years ago it was with FAA, and then my page got transferred to Pixels. Do I also have a FAA page and do new uploads I put in one show up in the other?

Hi Abbey-
I would like to introduce myself, my name is Gabby Tary.
And actually I'm tickled pink about FAA. First of all I'm honored my name does show up when searching, lol.
I've been a part of FAA for some time, but only recently did I discover the value.
Must admit when you changed the homepage I went crazy happy, I started to investigate further.

However, the reason I'm communicating with you is to ask a few questions about the website I'm building within FAA.
In fact, and I know this is a big favor to ask, if you could look at it.
I want to make sure technically I'm not screwing up the payment part.

Or a link to do's and don't when building a website within FAA.

- The artist on FAA are incredible ,so at first I'm like OMG how can I call myself an artist, but then I
discovered that the products are absolutely great looking with some of my work.

So the problem I have, even when I don't price the product it still shows up and some art isn't meant to be on products..

But then I discovered that I can do a whole lot in that little box with HTML, since I can code
that's great. So I chose the images and then linked it directly to the page where they can buy it.
So I figured that out but I can't figure out how to filter those products out when I click on links that is in FAA .

So is there anyway besides not adding the price to product I can filter out those products which don't look good with the art?

And yes, I agree with you on the article about selling, that's my next step once my website is finished.
And what people don't realize, promotion is hell. And promotion is a full time job.
I've done nothing yet, because I want the website to look good.
Thank you I'm sorry about the long post
Gabby:)

Abbie,

Please consider adding the rules for Group admins to the list.

Also, are there rules for contest creators? Can we limit the emails from contests also?
(I don;t think "voting in two days" and "voting begins today" and "one day left in voting" and "Only 15 hours left in voting" and on, and on are necessary nor productive)

Thanks for your consideration.

Abbie Shores

Hello

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

Search pages (such as particular product searches) take 24 hours after the prices added to be shown

Use DEFAULT SETTINGS to change pricing for future images
Use BULK IMAGE EDIT for existing images or
EDIT IMAGE for singles

It takes a couple of days for the other pages to catch up with changes

Dan

Yes I will add a link to the group guidelines and have a chat with Sean about the contests emails although there are already spamming rules in place that may work.

Abbie Shores

Scarlett, if not on the account that uploaded the art, you paid our price, plus yours. So you'll get your royalties

If logged into the artists account that uploaded the work, you don't get paid the royalties and purchased at a lower price

Hi Abbie, In my FAA gallery's, I need to add the " Featured Images 2020",
but I do not see any way to add a new category to the galleries.
all my images are going to have this problem of this showcasing feature in their galleries.

 

Abbie Shores

4 Years Ago

Why would you showcase features in a collection?

 

Kathy Braud

4 Years Ago

it captured the features in a group - if they were minimally looking for art.

 

Abbie Shores

Customers are not honestly bothered about features.

But to add a new collection, go to that page (collections) and create a collection

Or is that not what you mean?

Abbie Shores

They cannot from what I see... but they are not meant for visitors in actuality

The purpose behind these was for artists to share the link with their special customers, or their own social media.......

A limited amount of specially priced items for sale just for the chosen few.

Hi I am new to this, and there is meny things I do not understand.
When I shall post my image(s) in featured etc in discussions, something goes wrong. I copy the link under the image (cmd c) and paste it in (cmd v) in the
post reply window, but only my profile picture appears.
Why is it easier for customers to see the images by doing this?

Is it all right to use the already set price in the editing site?

How is the best way for customers to see my images on FAA?

I miss an introduction site for newbies!

Michel, huh?



I am sorry but the Facebook app does not work at present.

Facebook’s developer’s blog says that no new apps will be allowed to do this, and existing permissions were to be revoked in August.

-------------

Deprecation:

The publish_actions permission will be deprecated. This permission granted apps access to publish posts to Facebook as the logged in user. Apps created from today onwards will not have access to this permission. Apps created before today that have been previously approved to request publish_actions can continue to do so until August 1, 2018. No further apps will be approved to use publish_actions via app review. Developers currently utilizing publish_actions are encouraged to switch to Facebook's Share dialogs for web, iOS and Android.
(FB Developers blog https://developers.facebook.com/blog/post/2018/04/24/new-facebook-platform-product-changes-policy-updates/ )
-------------

This means they require people to actively share their work manually.

I am not sure what will be happening with our app here as yet. They approved us as a site allowed to add the shop to our FB pages but are still throwing up an error when we try to link them.

You now need to share using the FB button on the image page manually using the FB icon on the right of the image page

You have a button on your Facebook business page under the cover image. You can have that link to your store here direct.

Abbie,

You have links in the opening post for Fine Art America and Pixels. There's no need for both.

By using the 'relative path' link I illustrated above (with HTML code to use), people on Pixels or Fine Art America will both get to the same topic, no matter.

Try it.

Click (or hover over) the link above (from Fine Art America), then try it again (from Pixels).

Magic.

The Top Travel Pics Group on FAA / Pixels link below will also work from both Fine Art America and Pixels.

I recently created a premium website through Fine Art America. I have a general question. I post blogs on my premium website and they automatically post on my Fine Art America profile too.

So my question is which one ranks better on Google?

I want visitors to go to my premium website and not my Fine Art America profile. How does this work?

 

Cheryl Rhodes

I am new to Fine Art America but been on for about 3 months now. Paid for premium. When I put my name Cheryl Rhodes Art in the top search bar there are no matches. I tried every way to search, keyword + artist, artist alone etc. I am really confused and frustrated. How do people find me if it doesn't even recognize my name? Any advice? I have joined a few groups, participated in some of the posting art and liking works of others streams. But not many yet, just haven't been on long enough. Not sure what is wrong. Would welcome any advice others have. Thanks!

I have been absent from FAA for a couple of years but recently updated my paid membership.

After uploading new images I noticed that while my art is available on pillows, and mugs and such, there are no prices for regular prints of any kind...ie, paper, canvas, framed or not...

Where can I go to see how to edit the prices for such?

Thanks in advance.

Hi Abbie,

I haven't received a parcel that has evidently been lost in the post. I've already contacted Customer Service, but haven't heard back since 15 May.

I looked at the FAQs, but couldn't find an answer to my question:

At what point in a failed delivery will the order be re-processed or reimbursed?

I ordered my cushion print a month ago, but the wood print part of the same order was delivered successfully two weeks ago.

Thanks for all the great info here, it really is helpful.

 

Derek Goldberg

Hi Abbie,

I have a question about selling "limited edition" photographic prints. I don't see this topic covered and when I search for it I only get "limited time" hits which is another topic altogether.

I was wondering if you have a feature on the FAA site and search engine to list or show "limited edition prints." As the prices on these will be higher than open series prints, I would want it to be clear to prospective buyers that they are being offered limited edition prints. How would one go about trying to list limited edition prints on your profile page and could prospective buyers search specifically for limited edition prints? I'm assuming not because I tried it and did not get relevant hits in my text search? But maybe I'm just not doing it correctly, so thought I'd ask. Thanks in advance. Derek

Thanks, Derek

Four boxes below your art descrition, you'll recognize the box saying embed.
Just left click in that box with your mouse and it will select the image; right click your mouse to copy;
then,
Paste into the discusion for that group!

or highlight the embed code;
press ctrl c to copy; then ctrl v to paste
either way does the trick!

Best to you,

Hi Deborah Grems! Go to the page where you have the image, then scroll down where you can see the details about that image: "Title", "Artist", "Medium", etc. After "Colors" you will see "Embed". Copy the link and paste it to the group discussion.

Is there a list of the base print prices that FAA sets? I see the base price for the products but not for the prints. This would be so helpful for me to figure out how to price? Thanks for your help!

 

Abbie Shores

3 Years Ago

No

All markups are input in USD.

You can add your markup for $10 for an 8.0" x 6.4" ... $25 for a 12.0" x 9.6"... or $199 etc Whatever you want.. We charge for our products and add your markup for the licensing of that image at that size

The final prices are a collaboration of

1. What you put in your markup. That is what you will actually earn for a sale.
2. If your markup is $50 or under, we add $5. If your markup is over $50 we add $5 + 10%
3. Plus Our Printing costs

All of our wall decor is custom priced and produced based on your unique image sizes. So the easiest way to figure out base costs for your unique image sizes is to set all of your print markups for that image to $1. Then just see the resulting retail prices by size, and subtract your $1 markup by size to figure out our base costs for each.

Because our ship prices are also specific to your custom image sizes, the easiest way to figure out shipping charges is to add one of your images as a canvas print (or any other wall decor option that you want to figure out ship costs for) to a cart on our FAA or Pixels.com site, enter a US or international shipping address representative of where your customers are likely to be shipping your orders to, and see the ship price that our site shows you.

The Price and Dimensions area should be totally ignored if you are not selling original sculptures, paintings etc. We do not charge or take commissions on these.

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

You cannot choose between canvas OR paper prints etc. Only the products or all the prints. You are not selling the products, we are. So we price the product and you price your image which you are licensing to us to use on all prints

I’m confused. I see references to discount programs that don’t include “the accessory commission” from Zenfolio on sales. But I can’t find any info on the accessory commission on the site. Does it still exist? Is it a commission on frames, etc?

Hi Abbie,

Thanks for your helpful links.

I'm new to FAA, and I've joined the "PROMOTE YOUR WORK" group...Where I've given comments to each of the 3 links the artist just before me posted. Now it's my turn. How do I find the correct links in my profile like Angelo has posted of:
https://fineartamerica.com/featured/tropical-tulips-angelo-marcialis.html?

When I manually attempt to find a similar digital URL for one of my fav pieces so i can post as one of 3 links in that group, i come up with:
https://fineartamerica/featured/rainbow-swimmer-gary-wohlman.html

Yet that link doesn't work.

Any ideas how to create 3 links each one matching the uRL of my art as Angelo has created his, please? Appreciating a bit of hand-holding as I'm new to this site, thanks so much. Grateful, Gary

Hi,
I hope you can help me with this or point me to the people who can. I just had to change my password again. This happens quite often, the login refuses my password and I have to create a new one. Sometimes it won't even accept my email in order to GET a new password. Is there some way to fix this?

Aloha,

Jade Moon

Hi Jade,

I cannot assist with your password - Abbie should be along to help you with that.

Just in case - do not forget each time you log in - log in as an ARTIST and not a gallery or collector.

That sometimes happens and will fail to log you in -


If this is not the problem - you can always go to the bottom of any page and click Contact Us - send your issue to Technical Support

David Dehner, thank you. I have done that (contact us) several times and haven't received any answers, except for a form email saying someone will contact me, which still hasn't happened and it's been over a week. And I also am very careful to log in as Artist. Do you think it might have something to do with having separate log-ins for pixels and FAA?
It happened again just a few minutes ago. I'm logged in here but couldn't get into my Pixels account.
Mahalo for responding.

PS-- I just tried the "Contact Us" email again and will hope for a reply.

 

David Dehner

3 Years Ago

Hi Jade,

I think you found the answer to your own question..

Your log-in is the same for FAA and Pixels. If it is the same account it cannot have two different log-ins.

When you change it on FAA - the next time you try to log-in to Pixels it will fail because you changed it on FAA

Same site - Same log-in.. Pixels and FAA is the same site - they need the same log-in.

Hi everyone....I'm having two problems

Firstly - I am a member of 33 groups but in the expanded list in Behind the Scenes only 26 show. I know that I can get to the others via image edit but don't understand why they are not all listed in the Group Activity area.
Secondly - I am missing 23 images. From my total of 1090 only 1067 are present on FAA. I think a lot of these are all one type and I know that I haven't deleted them. Can FAA reinstate them along with Descriptions, keywords and comments/features? I did have one image go missing a month or two back and I had to re-upload it...these might have gone missing at the same time, I have no way to tell!

I'd be grateful for any help/solutions that you can offer.
Thanks
Wendy

 

Abbie Shores

If all one type then it's probably a DMCA was issued against them. I see Harley D on your page so that would make sense. Companies like that will make us remove their trademarked content.

Hi Abbie, I have now had time to go through my records so many thanks - it has helped me get to the bottom of all but one missing image. I think that I now have to go through over 1000 images if I want to find which one is missing unless FAA keeps a list/record? The image that FAA removed a couple of months ago was not sorted out and I spent some time finding it before uploading again. Could I suggest that if FAA have to remove images they let the contributors know in advance in order that we can get our records straight and not just find out by chance.
I understand about the groups.....should all of them appear in the Group list in Behind in Scenes?

Many thanks in advance
Wendy

Hi everyone!
I just joined and have a question....I am not the most technically advanced soul!

I do not want my images on all these other products. Can someone help me with how to do that?
Is it possible?
Thanks so much.

 

Wendy Wilton

3 Years Ago

Hi Melissa
I too am technically challenged.....but I think you'll find that if you go in to edit the image and don't put a mark-up for the items you don't want to sell then they shouldn't appear as available. If that doesn't work perhaps someone else will be able to help. Good luck, Wendy

 

David Dehner

3 Years Ago

Hi Melissa - Wendy is correct - here is how to do it so your present image and all future images are priced the way you want them.

1st
While signed into your account

Hover over the blue line below your name (Upper right hand corner)

On the drop-down menu click on (Behind The Scenes)

Click on (Default Settings)

Scroll down and Set your markup for the products you wish to sell, don’t forget to click (Save Changes)

Note: If you do not wish to sell a certain product (Leave the markup blank) no 0 no dash

This will set prices on all your future images you upload.

2nd
While signed into your account

Hover over the blue line below your name (Upper right hand corner)

On the drop-down menu click on (Behind The Scenes)

Click on (Bulk Edit Prices)

Click on (Show All Images)

Checkmark the square to select all images

Checkmark the square to select all 650 of your images

Click (Edit Checked Images Simultaneously)

Scroll down and Checkmark square to the extreme right of products you want to adjust price

Set the price for your markup, and do not forget to click the (Submit button) when finished

Note: If you do not wish to sell a certain product (Leave the markup blank) no 0 no dash

This will set all your current image prices

Someone mentioned to me that my images should be 300 dpi. But when I read the faq, it says that dpi does not matter. Wondering why it doesn't matter. When I changed my photo from 72 dpi (where it is when I open photoshop) to 300 dpi, the photo is way to large to upload here. Just a little confused. Thanks for the help!

 

David Dehner

3 Years Ago

Hi Sandra,

This is what Abbie wrote about DPI

IMPORTANT NOTE

DPI and PPI mean nothing. You do not need to worry about DPI or PPI at all. You are not looking to change those, or even use those

QUALITY

Before you upload your image you MUST go around that image at 100% view in a photo editor to make sure it is of top quality printability

If you sell an image we will refuse to print if the image shows.......

Pixellation
Blockiness
Noise
Bad cropping
Blurriness not in keeping with the image (ie not meant to be there)
normal font signature (Arial, Times New Roman etc)
signature cropped half off the image
large watermarks
noticeable camera flash
Upsized images

We do not do quality control until you sell so, it is your responsibility to quality control your images carefully before uploading.

The only time FAA remove images is if they’ve had a DMCA notice

If there was one removed apart from that then it was a glitch. In that case we would not have known or been able to tell you.

Hello everyone,

I went out for merely one day and came back to my PC to find -Goodness Gracious! 87 emails!

There in no possibility of reading them, much less answering a single one of them, because I would have to read all of them to catch the thread.

I dont know how you do it. My initial intention was to socialize and exchange impressions. No way this way,

I am sorry.

Just one question: Is there a possibility of regulating the amount of emails reaching me?

Thanks.

Sarah,

No you do not need a business license the customers belong to FAA and FAA pays you the markup

You'll have to check to see if you need to pay taxes on the markup that you received from FAA

Since you live in the USA you'll need to go behind the scenes to accounting and fill in the tax information

Thank you, so helpful. I feel really stupid in asking this but English is not my first language, and I'm having trouble understanding about posting fan art you create with celebrities in them. I read the link with the rules but I don’t understand if its allowed, like do you need permission from the person who is in the art?. How do you even get that if that is what you need. I did post some but worried about getting into trouble I posted of celebrities that there are a lot of fan art on the site, but not sure if you can post about any celebrity or only dead people or how it works. Really feeling embarrassed to ask but hoping someone can explain to me about this. I understand English but wow they use some hardcore langue in the rules of the site page.

Dear Abbie, thanks for your answer. I know it`s fineartamerica.com that`s selling the products, not me, so I don`t have to make my website meet the European requierments (cookies, privacy policy etc), even if I use my own domain name? Or I still have to?

My second question is: is VAT included in the sum I get from fineartamerica/pixels after selling the products? And what is the purpose of payment you choose? My German tax advisor needs this information.

Thank you

 

Abbie Shores

3 Years Ago

We pay in USD and your responsible for all your earnings taxes.

Vat has nothing to do with what we pay you. Sales tax is for customers only

A domain pointed here is fine, you do nothing

If you've your own site and are just using us as a drop in cart, or linking to us, your site would need to be legal and you're responsible for that

If using our premium site with your own domain, you don't need to do anything

I have a question. I just noticed that the website is discounting some of my images up to 73% off, but then I look at it from another browser and it doesn't show any discount at all. I am really confused. What is the 73% off about??? What am I missing?

 

Abbie Shores

3 Years Ago

There are three discount types

1. You are logged in, so you see your markup removed. it shows as a discount. Only you see that part.

2. Our online advertising (e.g. Google Shopping ads, Facebook ads, Instagram ads, etc.) is new part of what we offer to artists. When a sale results from one of our ads, we reduce your commission by 50% just like we do for Designer Prints.

We also do the same thing when we run sitewide discount codes (e.g. 20% off phone cases). Your commission will be reduced by that same discount percentage (e.g. 20%). Anyone who wishes to be a part of these discounts can opt in or, if not, opt out.

As always - You may opt out of these programmes whenever you want to. https://pixels.com/controlpanel/discountsettings.html (You have to be logged in to view)

You cannot advertise these as they show randomly and to only a few customers

3. HOLIDAY PROMOTION which are shareable by the artists on social media etc. We give you an email to let you know, and we will let you know in here (discussions)

I am new to this. Any advice welcome. Novice photographer here!

 

David Dehner

3 Years Ago

Hi Michelle,

Here are a few important items you must have.

TITLE – Give it a short but descriptive title – “A Beautiful Scene” will not tell perceptive buyers that your image is actually a Butterfly on wildflowers in Central Park.

KEYWORDS – Very important – you can use up to 500 characters, use them all if you can. Note: they must relate to the image. Do not use words or phrases that have nothing to do with the image you are uploading.

DESCRIPTION - Just like your biography when you're uploading art into your gallery, use the "Description" field to tell the story behind the art. Google loves a good story and that can help you in searches. Tell what is it, where it is, why you painted it or photographed it.


Check out this link - https://fineartamerica.com/blogs/just-joined-fine-art-america-now-what-do-i-do.html

And don't forget to open the FAQ sticky at the top of the discussions page

Welcome to FAA and good luck to you..

What does it take to be a featured artist? I look from time to time and it’s the same people being featured. I don’t see a particular pattern as to why they were chosen.


It would be nice if when one’s image is featured in a group that they would automatically add it as part of the description. I see it currently displayed but it seems to have a limit of 3 features per image.

there are no hidden fees, if you want to upload more than 25 images then its $30 a year. you add your mark up, then get your mark up.

Alice,

The only time I see it headless is in the thumbnail image on the shop page

If you move it to beyond position number 6 in that collection it won't show up as that small of a thumbnail on the shop page

I hope that makes sense to you

Hi Abbie & Fellow Members,
When selecting an image size for purchase, is there a way to add a custom size? If so, how? I think I read somewhere and now can’t find it that that is possible. Wondering as it seems like most sizing here is for custom framing and I would like for both my customers and I to have the ability to choose a different size which would not require that. Thanks!

Hi Alice,

You already have that ability.

Open one of your images - select Wall Art - select Art Print - on the right hand side where it says Shape / Natural Open the Drop Down Menu and you can select Horizontal, Vertical or Square - They are all sizes set for average popular frames.

You can select these for all Wall Art except Tapestries

Is there any way we can find out the specifics of the paper being used for prints? I am thinking of weight, brightness, if it is acid free, archival and whether or not it has OBAd. Also, anyway to view the difference via photos online and/or receive samples? I know FAA has different locations for printers so, I guess it would be on a location basis.?

Also on each print are details

Thanks for all of your help Abbie & David!! One more question, when I go in to edit my images to add a common between my keywords, I have noticed that the likes on that particular image then disappear. Is there a way to prevent that from happening or is it something Sean would need to address?

 

David Dehner

Hi Alice,

If you go in each image to edit the tags/keywords - that should not affect the likes or comments at all.

Are you - opening your image - clicking EDIT under your open image - adding commas to your keywords - and then hitting SUBMIT ?

New question: where do you find results for past contests? I received a comment that one image came in third. Yay! Would like to see the ones that came in first and second and the total number of photographs submitted. I went to search for contest but can’t find it. Thoughts?

Just received a print that I wanted to frame myself a it came out beautifully with 2 exceptions. First, my signature was on the bottom left and about half of it got cut off and secondly, it has a 1” boarder making it too large for frame I chose without having to trim it myself.

It did come flat instead of in a tube so that is another positive.

 

David Dehner

3 Years Ago

Hi Alice,

Since you are going to frame it yourself you probably ordered a common size in Horizontal or Vertical instead of natural - when you order prints that way they are cropped to that size from the center out - so you will loose some of the edge.

All art prints come with a 1" border and your order page would have stated the size that you ordered and the total size including the border

Hi Jessica,

Those are Bots or Web Crawlers, They are good things

Web crawlers go by many names, including spiders, robots, and bots, and these descriptive names sum up what they do. They crawl across the World Wide Web to index pages for search engines.

Search engines don’t magically know what websites exist on the Internet. The programs have to crawl and index them before they can deliver the right pages for keywords and phrases, or the words people use to find a useful page.

Hi! I have a noob question... What are we supposed to do when we come across a HUGE gallery full of a lot of different people’s works, from not so well known to museum type ? And offering to sell prints!
I think it casts a super bad light on this website ☹️ I wanted to upload my own paintings but... not so much now.
Is there any control at all?

 

Mike Savad

3 Years Ago

@skylan - it really depends, it may be that museum selling it. it may be in the public domain. if you know for a fact its theft of someone else's work, you can report it to the site, abbie has the Stites address, i always mess it up, though i think its dmca@stites.com. but generally the artist of the work has to complain.

generally its best not to get directly involved because it could be their work and they may be able to sell it. just because its in a museum, doesn't mean the content is protected if its old enough. and some of the people here are stock sites.

you can upload your own work, they can't get the small image. but there is always a risk that people will steal stuff. its just how it is. you can hire an online lawyer, you can do a reverse search to track people, and have stuff taken down.

@tony - there is no way to share to instagram. since there are no link backs in instagram, and its why i don't use it. as far as i know you can only log in directly using a phone or a PC app to make it look like a phone. its too much of a pain to work with that site that i get no hits back from.

Thing is, it is a gallery here, on this website and not only she sells prints of Alan Lee, Mucha, Dante Gabriele Rossetti, and many many others along her 270 pages! 😂 but .. She even has Marvel and DC logos available if you want 😂
That is not serious at all. Alan Lee, Ted Nasmith, John Howe are all very warry of those thieves... If the website can’t at least manage what is on display, this is doomed to fail.

 

Mike Savad

3 Years Ago

that stuff has been here for years. and they are cracking down, the site isn't failing. best you can do is report it to the site. eventually these people get caught one way or another, and sometimes with lawyers.

i don't know if they have a license or if they are using that person as an agent to sell the work. that's why its not ideal to get involved. if you see something report it to tech support or the legal address.

its impossible to view every single thing uploaded to a site, so a lot will get through the cracks, this site has been running for i think 15+ years and seems to be fine right now. i wouldn't worry yourself about other people's stuff, just focus on your own.

If there’s no current way to do this directly from FAA, may I please request it from Sean? I would think there would be a lot of demand for something like this.

I apologize in advance if the answer to this question of mine somehwere already exists. I have been looking in discussions for a long time. If I decide I don’t want to be a premium user anymore who decides which 25 photos are the ones that stay on my profile? Me or the FAA? If the FAA decides which ones remain, do they remove the ones that were loaded first, the ones that were last loaded, from the middle of the gallery or at random. God forbid all that time of uploading photos, editing additional products, choosing titles, tags, descriptions to make everything look as good as possible, promoting by groups and social networks, so that all that work disappears. The year of my life and my torment will be erased. Isn't there really a possibility that these works will remain. I uploaded them to the FAA and not to Pixels and Pixels is paid a Premium. Yes I know the FAA and Pixels are “sisters” but they are not twins so that is not the good answer.

 

David Dehner

2 Years Ago

Davorka,

If at some point I decided that I want to give up the premium membership - I would slowly and methodically chose the 25 images that I want to keep and delete the rest before I went back to the free membership.

But - If you do not want all your work to be for nothing except for 25 images - You can keep your sanity for only $30.00 a year and just leave your premium membership active.

 

Davorka Gredicak

Often less is actually more. I really need information on how the FAA stands with that so I can prepare. Maybe Abbie can answer that for me, if it's not a secret.

Your work will have the pricing removed down to 25 if a premium account is closed

You can book a premium account to be closed through me if in the future. Just give me the date it's due

 

Davorka Gredicak

It says to me that my NEXT RENEWAL: 11/22/2021. If I understood that date correctly, my account will be renewed unless I cancel it through you. If I am late in reporting by that date that I want my premium account not to be renewed anymore then it is renewed, but the FAA can refund the money 30 days after the renewal? I speak Croatian, so to make sure I understood correctly.

 

Abbie Shores

Hi :)
I have an urgent question from a client. What is the difference between natural shape and vertical shape for acrylic print about vertical artwork?
My client doesn't success to buy the size she wants (40x60") if she chooses vertical shape.
Thank you so much for quickly reply :)

 

Mike Savad

2 Years Ago

Natural is the native pixels you used to make the image.

Vertical often forces the size to fit common frame sizes.

But if your image is too small or the wrong rectangular shape then it may not be able to go as high as 40x60.


----Mike Savad

 

Mike Savad

Looking at some of your work, a lot of it is 4000x3000 and others are 5100, both would be tough at 60"

the client wants this pic:
https://fineartamerica.com/featured/notes-in-the-wailing-wall-yoel-koskas.html?product=acrylic-print
And I don't understand why, for this vertical artwork (3744 pixels x 5616 pixels - ratio 2/3) the site doesn't let me to choose 40x60" with "vertical shape" but only with "natural shape"?

 

David Dehner

2 Years Ago

Hi Yoel,

Vertical, Horizontal and Square are limited but common sizes.

If your client wants the 40 x 60 - tell them to purchase in Natural - That is the way you intended the image to look - cropping the image to Vertical can eliminate portions of the edge of the image.

Forgive me if this is not the right place to ask this. I didn't find it anywhere else, but I'm sure it's been addressed (I admit l didn't search that long forgive me). Is there a reason why you limit the title (file) characters to the basic A-Z? I have a collection with a month of the year and a "colon" then a sub-title. The page doesn't let me use the colon and therefore the title is just a bit off. I put a space to help, but it still looks strange as a title.

There is no minimum balance required.

We get paid on the 15th of each month.

There is a waiting period of 30 days due to the fact that the buyer has 30 days to return the purchase.

So if you have sales on or before the 15th of September you get that money on the 15th of October

David Dehner

2 Years Ago

Hi Marina,

FAA / Pixels search takes into consideration many different factors when determining the sort order of the images.

It takes into consideration:

1. The relevance of your image keywords
2. The number of times an image has been sold
3. The number of times an image has been favorited
4. The number of times an image has been commented on
5. How long an image has been on the site
6. The number of times an image has been featured in a group
etc...

There are more than 25 different criteria that the search engine evaluates.

 

Marina Matkina

Hi David,
Thank you very much for the answer.
That is, if I only sell originals, I have too little chance of being on the front pages.
Faced with a lot of fraud on my images, a lawyer recommended that I put watermarks everywhere. Apparently, this can severely limit my sales here.

Thanks again for the answer.

Interesting topic

 

David Dehner

2 Years Ago

Hi Randall,


Q- How many pics should one have in a collection?

There is no set rule of course – but here is what I think.

If you have 10 or less images in a collection your potential customers will most likely lose interest pretty fast.

If you have 3000 images in a collection it will most likely overwhelm a potential customer.

So somewhere in the middle is the correct answer – lol.

I think – at least 50 images – that will fill the first page of the collection and under 3000 : )


Q – Is it better to have many collections or just a few?

I would say it depends on how many total images you have uploaded. That being said – as many collections that you need to insure your plan is working for you.
Different artists have different thought processes as to how they want their collections to work.

Rule of thumb – If your image meets the requirements to belong to more than one collection that is fine – but if you place the same image in many collections the potential customer is going to think they already seen that collection and will move on.

By the way - you have some beautiful photographs.

Hope this helps

As far as I know as long as she knows you are selling them. And the images are a fine quality it should be fine. If she is trying to make money off of them then it may be best for her to have her own account since everything is reported to the government over a certain amount and it will only get real confusing at the end.

I'm not abbie but a close simulant, all sites are the same thing. Upload it to any of them. But you are better to advertise the pro site.

I think If you add a blog, the tab will simply show there. Not sure what a statement is, but there is an ABOUT section.

Is anyone having an issue with changing an image? I have deleted, logged off, added new image, refreshed and the first image keeps showing.
Any ideas?

 

David Dehner

Hi Warren,

Changed Image Not Changing.

When you replace an image with a new upload it can take 24 to 48 hours for the new image to show.
It may take longer for some areas to convert to the new image.

If your patience is wearing thin you can try to Clear Your Cache / History from your browser.

If you don’t mind losing your analytics and breaking any links you posted to social media you can delete the old upload completely and start over – giving the new unloaded image an new title - this will post your new image immediately and prevent any future problems with identical titles on the site.

You should get it automatically. But if you use comcast, aol etc, you might get it randomly. Use a gmail address they don't usually erase our mail. But you don't have to wait for mail, just look under sales or balance.

then you can see it right away.

Carine and Karen,

if you look at an image (any image) that you have up you'll see a lot of stuff on the right. The stuff near the top is the different items that the image is sold on. IF you scroll down further you'll see stats like Number of views, etc. and in that area you'll see a line "EMBED" with some html below it. Below that is a link that says "preview". If you copy the HTML you can paste it into a discussion post.

This may sound like a stupid question but the keywords you use should match the tags after you upload the photo correct?

I noticed on my recent heron with fish photos the last tag shows "Oliver Cromwell" but I have water,dam,rocks,waves,fish,nature,wildlife at the end of my keywords

 

Mike Savad

Curious about sales tax on a purchase.
As a reseller I have never paid sales tax on a purchase here at FAA until today.

I list some of my products from FAA on my own website.
If someone buys off my own website, I order from here and either ship it to them or hand deliver it.
My website charges them my state sales tax which I report and pay every year.
If I pay tax here and then charge my customer sales tax again that is double taxation.

What has changed?

I have a question concerning the return policy - how does that work if someone buys the royalty free image and then decides they want their money back? It's not a product they can simply return. Can they still buy the image and then later say they want their money back? Or does the return policy not apply to a digital download?

I think it only covers physical items that could have defects in which they have to prove it has defects. Downloads wouldn't unless it glitched I guess.

@jan - physically they are there, but they decided that it should only show a couple, we aren't sure why. You should include more words though btw.

I have images submitted to groups, that have ended up ‘rejected’. The only option is to email the administrator, and ask them to change that, and they tell me ‘just resubmit’. I can’t. The only option is to email them. Do they need to do something? One group seemed to accept my images until I had a health hiatus of 6 weeks, and then it dumped over 10 works into ‘rejected’, all had been previously accepted, now I cannot resubmit them.

Help, please?

I originally set up my domain with Google Domains ($12 monthly) and their Workspace ($6 monthly) to edit the website and have access to my custom email.
Since FAA is not a domain host outside of ".pixels", my existing domain has to be hosted somewhere else and linked to FAA a Custom Domain. Correct?

Question/s:
What is everyone using for their hosting? Is there a cheaper way to simply host the domain name than what I am currently doing?

Coming soon means you didn't fill something in. Be sure you use different titles, you have at least 2 the same, and that will mess up the system. They will see something random. Be sure the images have no frames of your own and are large enough to print. And make sure they have keywords or no one will find them.

"I am confused. I have never done this before with AI, as I am fairly new to it, however I have seen it done over and over again way more time than I can count. I have not always noticed whether the artist says AI or not. Not sure it even matters, does it? I mean even if it is a painting, does that matter either without the subject's permission?

Either way, for the first time ever, and only for a contest I posted a movie star using AI. How does FAA allow themselves and the artist to sell without permission? They obviously do, or there would not be SO MANY for sale.

Personally, I don't feel right about it and do not think I will do it again, also I may even delete it.

I am looking for feedback, not only on AI, but the fact that it is anything, or anyone famous done in any form. Because, I don't get it.

Thank you all, I appreciate your opinion."

https://fineartamerica.com/art/buddha
There were 1460 images, quite a few of which had absolutely nothing to do with Buddha, but none of them were mine. I have posted multiple images in the past 10 years that have been clearly tagged as Buddha, so could you please help me understand why none of my images showed up? Am I missing a step somewhere? TIA

 

Ekta Gupta, if you scroll through the pages, you would see your painting somewhere down in the order. Or try sorting in different orders.

I've uploaded new images two days ago that appear when I'm logged into FAA but have not correctly propagated to my own website.

From my own FAA profile, if I go to Collections and click on my City of Dreams collection (using current version of Firefox on Windows 10) I correctly see nine images. From other browsers (I've tested current versions of Chrome and Opera on Windows 10, and Safari on iOS 17.1.1) if I type alexlapidus.pixels.com and click on the City of Dreams collection, I only see the four images that I had uploaded previously, but not the newer five (they also don't appear in other collections I had placed them in).

However there are thumbnails for the new images in the Collections overview of the City of Dreams collection at alexlapidus.pixels.com/collectiongroups , so I know they're in there somewhere, just not accessible.

Thanks for any help you can offer!

I’ve been with FAA since July 2022 and have uploaded over 170 images of my paintings. I also set up my website using the FAA template (ie. the dot pixels). I noticed that when I google my name on the internet a whole bunch of my paintings show up as images (which pleases me). Many of the images of my paintings on the net when I click on them, visit me to my FAA profile page, which is fine. However I also noticed that when I click on other images of my paintings on the net to “visit”, it takes me to the Pixels website directly (not my FAA profile page or my FAA personalized website). When I go to the pixels website, I am able to log in using my regular FAA password, but it says I’ve not uploaded any images yet. That’s not my concern though. My concern is that if someone were to see my painting on the net and visit the pixels website that it is tagged to directly, would they be able to buy from that pixels site directly (by passing me) and I don’t get any money from that sale?

Hi Roger,

When you make a sale on any of the many websites owned by FAA / Pixels - you will receive your markup for that sale.

The three main sites are listed below.



Your Fine Art America site will show all substrates of prints and Home Décor only.
Fineartamerica.com

Your Pixels site will show all substrates of prints and ALL other products.
Pixels.com
This is where you want to send your potential customers if you have not upgraded to premium.

If you have upgraded to Premium your Pixels Premium site will show all substrates of prints and ALL other products.
This will be the site you want to send your potential customers – They will see only your art work with no distractions or links to other artists work.

Your Artist sign-in and password is the same for all three sites.

A question on tagging. FWIW I'm a retired research librarian with experience in digitization and archives. Librarians live and breath Cataloging. Mine was Library Of Congress stuff which mean minutia.

So my question is about the structure of tagging. In library cataloging, keywords or tags can be added as single words followed by a comma or as phrases followed by a comma: wood, work, woodworking, woodworking gift, woodworking birthday present. Barring Boolean phrasing, if I add wood, work that would equal wood, work or woodwork or woodworker or woodworking in the user search query. The suffixes are assumed by the search engine.

But that's in library world stuff. Do those rules apply to FAA/Pixels? Or do I have to add tags as separate items: wood, woodworker, woodworking, etc.?

Hopefully that all makes sense? I don't know what search engine is used here, thus my question.

Question on pricing that I don't see answered in FAQ:

I recently uploaded a new image and compared the pricing of the identical product (print size and frame, etc) on my FAA account and on my Pixels account. I had always presumed the retail would be the same between the two accounts. To my surprise the pricing on my Pixels account was about 28% higher than my FAA account. And I was comparing apples to apples. Why is that?

 

Mike Savad

@david - when your logged into whatever site your in - you see the price you pay, not the price I pay. The more money is the right price. The low money is the one the right price. If you log out of whatever site your in you'll see the prices are the same.


----Mike Savad

 

David T Wilkinson

@Mike - I was comparing apples to apples. I was logged into both when I was comparing them. Then I logged out of both and compared them with the same results - about a 28% difference. When I did the same for one of your images -- comparing both FAA and Pixels -- they were the same pricing. I'm not sure what's going on with my accounts.?!?

Here's an example:
$74 https://fineartamerica.com/featured/picacho-peak-sunset-pano-david-t-wilkinson.html?product=canvas-print

That was the problem. For some reason Pixels had me in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada using Canadian currency! And I live in Sister Bay, Wisconsin. Don't know how that would have happened. I've corrected my location and that solved it.

I'm a paid artist and have another artist friend who has reached out to me with a problem she's having logging in. I'm not finding help for this anywhere. She is a new, paid member and hasn't been able to log into her account. She set some basic things up initially, but would like to dig into it more now and is unable to log in.

She tries to reset her password but never gets the email. She has tried multiple times since September and has checked her Junk folders but is not receiving that reset email for whatever reason. She only uses one email address (a simple one that she wouldn't make an error in). I've tested her email with her and it's fine. One suspicious thing is I sent her a message through the pixels contact button on her artist page and she hasn't received that either.

She uses Chrome and Firefox on Windows on a PC.

She phone and was told to go to the Contact page and fill out the form. She has done that about three times and never gets a response. She has tried everything she can. I've tried to help her from different angles and have ruled out different possible problems. We've run out of options.

Is there any way someone can contact her by phone or manually by email (not through the site platform), verify her identity then reset the password for her to something simple. That way she can log in, change her password and get onto the business of setting up the rest of her account? I don't want to reveal her name and email address in the open here, I can provide it privately. Thanks.

It's very simple... If she's not getting emails, all of which were sent, she's not getting the emails.

A couple of email programmes block us entirely but it's more than likely that all the emails are sitting in her spam folder.

David Dehner

1 Month Ago

Hi Karen,

Your Zebra image is 370 x 462 pixels in size –

Much too small for really anything – Even stickers should be 830 pixels and up.

That is why prints are not showing – FAA will only show prints that your size image will produce.

My suggestion – what ever you are taking pictures with – look for settings and adjust images to the largest available size. Then post those images.

For Instance - A 2000 x 3000 pixels image will allow printing of a 20” x 30” print.


If you are working with digital - start with a large canvas.


Open the link below for more information about size –
