Please provide us with the following images:
- A Showcase Image — this is a single image we can use to introduce your work on our public Instagram and Facebook accounts. If there’s one piece of art that best sums up the kind of artist you are and exemplifies your best work of all time, this is it!
- Your Profile Photo — a clear image of you, the artist If you can edit the image yourself, crop it in a square.
- Cover Image for your profile — This cover image will appear at the top of the profile page in the Artists Directory. A long, narrow horizontal image would be ideal. If you don’t have one, you can send us a larger image that I will crop to make fit. (Sometimes a closeup or detailed view of a painting can work wonders if you don’t paint in landscape format).
- Twelve images for your gallery. We will prepare a gallery for your profile page. For starters, please up to 12 images for that gallery. When you’re ready to manage your own profile, you will be able to upload up to 25 images that you can organize into albums if you wish.
For every image you give us, please add your name to the front of the filename before you email it to us so we can track it more easily? (e.g., johnsmith_myprofile.jpg, or johnsmith_showcase_jpg or johnsmith_coverimage.jpg or johnsmith_image01.jpg)
For every image of your artwork, we will need the following details to build a caption or to write up a post: Title, Medium, Dimensions (height x width in inches), Availability for Sale. If you want us to include the price, we can do that too. Furthermore, a brief description in a sentence or two would be helpful.
If you regularly post on places like Instagram and Facebook, you may have your own favourite set of hashtags that you’d like us to add to the post (e.g., #portraitdrawing, #oilonpanel, #art_empire, etc.). Send them along too.
