New Submit: Setting up Prints Tip

Wed Jan 23, 2013, 11:23 AM
With the New Submit Page comes a small change in how prints are uploaded to the site. Below is a screenshot of the new submit page. On the right, you'll see 3 options. I have checked Submit Prints. Below that, a new check box appears, labeled Use recommended defaults.

If that box is checked, you will skip the prints submission page and the sizes closest to the image you have submitted will be selected. If you leave the box unchecked, you will be brought to the prints submission page where you can customize your products to your hearts content.

Keeping the box unchecked is most definitely the best option to choose, in my opinion. I like to have control over every piece to make sure it will look good when someone buys it.

On the flip-side, if you're a photographer and your source file hasn't been cropped at all, there is an excellent chance the 1.5:1 image ratio will work by default. Our system will see that and give you those print sizes already set up. I would still recommend personally looking at them, but in cases like that, it is most likely safe to submit the default settings. No Art Gift products will be selected by default. These include mugs, magnets, and calendars. Those must be manually added.

If you're unsure which you like better, un-check the box and see what prints it gives you. On the prints submission page, what you see as checked are the default sizes. :)

Why can't you edit your prints without resubmitting them?  Or am I missing something?

Hi All, I only joined yesterday and in my excitement to add my images I'm a bit worried I may have made a bit of a blooper! I selected submit and uploaded my high-res photos for each deviant. Last night I spent hours going through more of the FAQs pages and it mentioned a smaller file should have been uploaded first then linked to the larger file. All my images are def uploaded and viewable by the community and I chose the PRINTS option on all. Will I have to undo everything I've done? I couldn't actually find a step-by-step submission guide to help me. Any advice greatly received!

Soo.. just curious on how one gets paid for a sale? I have not seen it ask for any method of payment.. like setting up with Paypal for example? When I purchase something it asks how I want to pay for it, but as a seller, im wondering where I put the information so I receive the money.? Maybe i have just missed that bit somewhere along the way.

Once you have made some sales, you can head to the Earnings page to check them out, plus pull any of the funds.…

There's nothing to set up beforehand. It's solely done once you have the minimum required amount.

Hello - how does the buyer pay the seller?

The buyer will purchase the prints directly through DA and then DA will give you the earnings for the sale.… will show every sale and how much you've earned.
