by S. Pimental Do you want to sell your art on the web but don’t know how to begin? Do you already sell your art on the internet but have no sales? I did a Google search for “sell your art on the internet” and I came up with 295 million instances. I have written this post to share my experience with Fineartamerica. You can upload a file from your art on this site and for $30 a year you get unlimited uploads. The beauty of this site is it gets a lot of traffic. Traffic is what you need if you want to sell on a regular basis. The site offers to format your art and sell it as greeting cards as well as canvas and plain paper prints. Anyone that purchases prints from this site can also mat and frame the art as well. Another feature I like about this site is it shows you what has sold that day from other artists.
This should be enough motivation to inspire even the most skeptic artist. The trick to knowing how to upload an image to this site is simply to have a high resolution image file created from your art. You can either take a digital photo of your art if it is large, or you can place it on a scanner bed. When scanning on the bed, set your scanning to allow for high resolution setting. When taking a digital photo, set the camera for high resolution as well. Details for setting the camera can be found on the cameras menu button. If you don't have a scanner, may I suggest an Epson V330 or similar. This equipment is inexpensive and takes beautiful scans as well. I had purchased an all-in-one copier thinking I could get the whole deal, but I was disappointed. Not all scanners are created equal. I compared both scans from both the Epson and the Canon all in one and the Epson shows the crispness and detail I want. If you just want to try Fine art america you can upload images for free and then add a link to your website or eBay store where customers can buy more art you have to offer. So, don't waste anymore more time, upload some great art you have made and let the world see it! Posted by author S. Pimental
