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.

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.

I ordered one of my own prints just so that I could see the quality (which is nice), however I did not log into my retail account. Will I still get my commission on the print?

 

AWAY - Abbie Shores

1 Year Ago

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

Abbie!
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.

I can put that on my diary now to close on 11/20/2021 for you?

If you forget but are within the 30 days then I can refund that for you

Abbie, you can put in your diary that date. If by the day before at least one "nice thing" doesn’t happen to me, then I’ll "yell at you" not to close the premium :-))) Fingers crossed! ;-)

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

25 Days 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

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


----Mike Savad

thank you so much Mike :)
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

25 Days 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.

What percentage of a sale does Fine Art America take and what percentage does the seller get once an item is sold?

We do not deal with percentages

You add what YOU want to earn if we sell one of our products and have your image on it

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.

 

Mike Savad

File names can't use colons. You can use a comma or maybe a pipe. If they still have that on keyboards.

Hi there. Im sure youve heard that many people have signed in to paypal, and get notified theyve been banned for life.

I can get no explanation, no customer service to discuss with me.

I have no idea what happened.

My question is -

Are there alternate options for FAA to pay me?

It says they dont pay by check anymore

 

David Dehner

10 Days Ago

Hi Susan,

There is no other way to receive your markups from FAA.

I know there were instances that someone could not open a PayPal account and they used a family member or close friends PayPal account. Just a thought..
