It’s important to take high-quality photographs that accurately represent the appearance of your artwork in real life:

  1. Use a diffuse natural or artificial lighting to light the entire artwork thoroughly, without shadows or harsh reflections; 
  2. Use a plain white background that contrasts with the artwork. For artworks that are white use a neutral-coloured backdrop to provide some contrast. 
  3. Photos should be:
  • big enough to show details clearly and fill the whole frame when appropriate;
  • multiple if you want to show as much detail as possible;
  • with artwork details of any flaws, stains, wear and tear, or any other damage so buyers know exactly what to expect;
  • set the camera to a medium or higher resolution (for example 1024x768 pixels or larger) to produce good quality photos;

   4. Do not use:

  • pictures copy from another seller, website, retailer, manufacturer or anyone else without their permission;
  • the flash on your camera if your artwork is reflective like glass on a framed artwork or if it has a mirror; use it only to supplement other significant light sources.ù

If the appearance of your work has changed, please rephotograph the work and contact our support team at support@artupia.com to change your artwork image.
