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. :)

Doesn't the watermark stay?

Do you mean will the watermark be on the actual print? It won't. Only the small preview images will have a watermark on it.

You will need to enable the watermark separately for the deviation and print files, however. That setting does not carry over from one to the other.

Is it a good idea to put watermark?

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?
Thanks

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

I like Devianart. But there are a lot of things that I don´t understand. I have uploaded 5 artworks and still  none one of them is now  selling like a print. They are in JPG file format, RGB color, 72 ppi resolution. The system always says: "Your file size is not enough longer for sell like a print". I have made longer one,  but after the system says:"Is not enough longer work". Besides what mean: "Your file D is processing"? And whatever it is how many time it takes? I am tired of to wait.
Besides, please explain me what mean "upload a print".The process is very confused and tangled.
And my last question, I do oil paintings, can I do sell oil canvas in Devianart? Thanks!!

Looks like I'll be leaving DeviantART before I really got started.  I'm unable to submit artwork for print because my png and jpg file formats no longer work.  I've never heard of an RGB file format, and googled it... apparently it's a file format I can't or don't know how to create.  That's too bad, and I'm going to have to ask to cancel my subscription and get my money and artwork back.  I feel like I've just been kicked. :(

If you're using photoshop, at the top of the photoshop window there's a drop down menu called "Image". Select that. From the list of options that become available choose "Mode". When you choose "Mode" a list of different file formats will be shown. Choose "RGB Color" from that list.

I am not using photoshop ... so ??? Also, the information you provided is not only irrelevant but incomplete.  Choosing RGB Color will do what, precisely? I have a frequently asked question!

Well first of all, what program are you using then? You tell me my information is incomplete but you don't provide any insight into how you're creating these images or what tools you're using. I think since Photoshop is the most widely used program it's just assumed that that's what people either use or have access to. Web pages are based on an RGB color scheme because of the way computer screens are made. You have to use an RGB image to make the image web compatible. CMYK is generally used for print because CMYK color cartridges are what most printers use. Generally when an image is converted to a jpeg, it's also automatically converted to RGB but certain programs don't do that. It would help to know what program you're using to create your images otherwise I can't help you figure out how to create the proper file type.

Forgive me for expressing my opinion while asking a question that I'm sure obviously states that I need further explanation and more of it.  The question I asked is:  Choosing RGB Color will do what, precisely? and you don't need to know what program I'm using to give me an answer.  I'm clearly not claiming to be a know-it-all... and I have to think you work for Da or are you another user?  I'm not sure now what is going on.

At this point I believe I no longer need your help, but thank you for your reply.  Da is perhaps not the place for me to be asking for information, or to ASS-ume that it takes it's users who pay to be here and use this site as a go to.. perhaps I'm wrong for assuming you'd be able to see my profile which states what I use, since I'm not using any programs, only free online tools, and I am very new to Da.  Apparently, I expected you'd know and that expectation is probably so far out of the universe as to be unknown. lol  I suppose I expect too much, and I'm sorry for that.

I am old, so I still somehow believe the things websites disclose to prospective users... the promises of help, questions answered - need anything, have a problem, print group is the go to friendly helpful people who know.  If you're a user, I am apologetic for asking you technical information as though you're professional and would know and perceive that I'm a little frustrated, and just needed a little patience and information.  

Henceforth, I will not presume to believe I'll get a positive from a negative, and this experience has left me flat.  If you're feeling the same... my humble apology is yours.

No I don't work for DA. I'm just another user. RGB stands for Red Green Blue. Those are the colors that computer monitors use to display images. CMYK stands for Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, and Black. Those are the colors that printers use to print images. The reason the images have to be in RGB is because this is a website and will be viewed on a monitor and since monitors display in RGB that's the file type that's necessary.

I needed to know how the RGB factor helps an image become a higher resolution image.  If I am creating with RGB settings, which I believe I am, my reason for asking the question in the first place is that, I keep getting a message when I submit a print that says I need to submit a higher resolution image.  I'm trying to achieve a higher resolution but printing is not satisfied and I'm perplexed.  I want PRINT HELP ... nothing more.  I am sure you cannot help me, and there is no reason for further contact between us, as I am leaving DA asap.

What does " Your print _____ was processed?"

renonevada Featured By Owner Jun 30, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
When submitting a deviation, you have the option to submit prints as well. Once they are in our shop you are notified that the prints have successfully processed and show in the shop.

If you do not wish to submit prints, make sure the Submit Prints checkbox is unchecked when submitting a deviation.

If you would like to deactivate prints, you may do so by clicking the "Edit" button on any deviation that has a Print enabled. On the deviation edit page, uncheck the "Sell Prints" checkbox and and click the “Update" button. Once you click "Update" your Print will no longer be available in the deviantART Prints Shop.

PNG's can definitely be uploaded as a print. I would suggest removing any transparent elements, if there are any, to ensure that the image processes correctly when being formatted for each of our product sizes. :)
