Hi Lissa, just wondering if you could explain that all again....I don't get it.

It's very helpful and practical. The bookmark also is convenient. Thanks for your smart idea, Beth.

Hi Beth!
I've been a member of FAA about a year now and am just discovering some of these great discussions! I'm a slow and distracted learner.. Thanks for this discussion! It has some invaluable information that I will continue to refer to. Having a great need to get my art out in the world, (like us all), this really helps me see FAA as a great tool, in multiple ways, to make that happen. Thanks for posting such an infomative and helpful FAQ's1

 

You are very welcome, lady of the MOST excellent name :)

What about about like how to cancel POD if not interesting in 30 day trial?

 

email accounts at fineartamerica.com and they will cancel it. Make sure you let them know what you want cancelled.
If you want to close your account at FAA totally, even the free one, email the same address (subject: account cancellation) and they will take everything off for you.

This is on the actual site FAQ page at http://fineartamerica.com/frequentlyaskedquestions.html which is for all the gallery stuff

Hi Beth,

Thanks for the help. Whenever I get lost at FAA, I always refer to your FAQ.

Good day and Happy Painting always :) Dindin

 

:) Glad it is doing its job

Hi Beth,

Do you know if anyone else has had this problem loading headshots: I delete the current image, no problem there. I can upload the correct photo, everything seems fine, I hit Okay... and the Old Photo appears again! I have gone in and out of the website to make sure I am properly deleting the old photo, but when I upload a different photo, the old one comes back!

 



HEADSHOT IMAGE WONT CHANGE

Yes, it is your cache on your computer.

Here are a couple of quick methods for seeing it imediately...

1. Go off the page and empty your browser cache. When you go back you should see it.
2. Hit F5 a couple of times. You should see it.
3. Right click on the image and View Image, refresh that page, hit your back button and hit refresh. You will definitely now see it.

:)

(Have added this to the Images menu above :) )

I found a number of fineart emails in my spam folder today - and some from people I've talked with before. As I normally just delete that folder every day or two, I cannot go back and check it. It just so happenned today my sister sent something and I finally found it there. If anyone emailed to me and didn't get a response, I apologize. I'll try to fix it.

Thanks for the info re: uploading a headshot!

I was able to upload a new headshot but only the large logo was updated, not the small logo. Any suggestions?

 

Glad it all helped Hollie ;)

 

It is updated, it will show soon.,.. its just your cache not showing it on your computer

don't erase the actual picture, click on it, then you'll see edit, delete, upload new image. i usually do edit and change the image from there. if you delete the image on the page, that page will vanish as well.

Hi! New to FAA so hope this is a good place to post...few questions:

1 - How can I change the activity I see on activity page. I tried clicking the boxes; however, nothing happens
2 - Posting to a discussion most everyone's submissions are showing actual photographs, mine just shows link - what's the secret?!??:)
3 - One of my photographs was made a featured item in a group - I only found this by going back to the group page - is there a way to receive a notification of this?

Thanks so much in advance!:)

Click the link not the box

2 - Posting to a discussion most everyone's submissions are showing actual photographs, mine just shows link - what's the secret?!??:)


Click submit and it will show the image if you are using the proper code from the right side of the image

3 - One of my photographs was made a featured item in a group - I only found this by going back to the group page - is there a way to receive a notification of this?

On your activity you can see the groups that have featured you and, also, you will have an icon under the actual image

Hello guys, newbie here. So, apparently my art didn't show up in the search after i uploading them. Any idea why? thank you

 

Rose Santuci-Sofranko

Adnin, the answer should be in the link to "search" in the opening post here...it takes at least 24 hours after uploading for your stuff to show up in search

OOPS... SOMETHING IS NOT RIGHT Please enter the REGISTRATION FEE as X,XXX.XX

I get this 'OOPS' note above when I try to add there is no fee to the registration fee box when trying to add an event. I started with the word, 'NONE' and received this notice. I have tried multi-times with X,XXX.XX and each time is rejected. I've even tried 'copy and paste' with only the 'OOPS' notice. How can I SUBMIT my event?

 

Did you try not adding ANYthing?

 

Actually Andee, I worked so hard on that one I have not the heart to not use it. Also people ask questions there and I answer there so I am going to keep using it for now and just keep adding to it

I am curious about the 30-day return policy. I had a greeting card sale on 7/12, and then was paid for it on 8/15. On 8/25, it was returned with the comment returned within 30 days. I don't understand the math!

Boo hoo!!!! I just updated my Fine Art America Blog to add a page that would link up to my latest regular blog post ... but when I did, the original FAA blog I created (sole purpose was to direct folks to my regular blog) went off to see the wizard. I had no idea that adding a new page / announcement meant the older page would disappear.

Can the original page be recovered ... and if so ... how do I avoid this in the future?

And oh by the way, as long as I'm trying to self-promote, here's a link to the regular blog: http://1stangel.co.uk/loisbryan/2014/09/13/rapunzel-rapunzel/

thank you kindly ...

I am trying to globally change my prints to include the watermark. It only prints on new uploads. How can I get it on to older images? Please help!

Hello! The social media icons on the profile page under "Following/Follow" - are those customization links to go to the artist personal/business pages? If so, how does one customize them? If not, I'm assuming add links in bio section and use these great instruction http://1stangel.co.uk/make-html-links/

 

Lois

Adding a new blog post here does not cause the old one to go away, it creates a new one...... What you done to it ? ;)

Christy Watermarks are put on at upload and so you would need to reload the image to add or remove. If this is how you want them in future, do not forget to change your DEFAULT SETTINGS

Another Christy? :D they are not to your pages there, they are to like your page here using those medias... it appears on your pages somewhere over there but hidden away *sigh* add your own links and yes, my html cheat sheet is great for that... add to your biography

I think it's actually better to group them. The human brain doesn't work that way, a list like that bores it.
