FACEBOOK

Facebook is a pain in the bleep bleep proverbial

The thing is that they demand all your apps refresh and resubmit approval every so often. That means us artists setups just stop working

and because everyone puts them on at different times, they are all kicked off at different times, and there is absolutely NO way to let people know, because FAA don't know

If you delete and replace as per my instructions, it DOES work unless Facebook are just having one of their 'we aint going to post anyone's art at present because too many people have already' days

If they just give you a number, I CAN SORT THAT yayyyy... just give me the number

Otherwise you just have to wait patiently til they take the lock off

TO KICK

Please log into FAA and disable both FAA apps

Then, remove the app from your Facebook Pages

FACEBOOK PROFILE

Go to your main homepage and see APPS on the left menu.
Delete the FINE ART AMERICA APP

FACEBOOK PAGE

On your FACEBOOK page, go to EDIT PAGE
On the edit page see the tab for APPS
Delete the FINE ART AMERICA APP

YOUR SITE HERE

Then, Make sure you are logged into Facebook as you, not as your page, and come back to your BEHIND THE SCENES | Facebook Application and enable the application again, Middle one (FB personal profile) and then the right one (FB page) If it does not popup, use a different browser and make sure your popup blocker is not enabled, or any ad blockers

The profile side must be enabled as well as the page but, you may turn off postings to that page in your default settings, once the application is all working

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

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

 

Isabella Abbie Shores

6 Years Ago

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,

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!

 

Isabella Abbie Shores

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.

I don't see this in the list above and I don't know where else to ask about including a message with the item ordered - like 'Happy Birthday' etc. when ordering a pillow or bag.
It doesn't look like it can be done. Any chance we can have this option?

Is there any way to customize how your main page displays? This is what I would like to do...

================================================================================
Gallery #1 Name
Gallery #1 Description
Image #1 - Image #2 - Image #3 - Image #4 - Image #5
================================================================================
Gallery #2 Name
Gallery #2 Description
Image #1 - Image #2 - Image #3 - Image #4 - Image #5
================================================================================
Gallery #3 Name
Gallery #3 Description
Image #1 - Image #2 - Image #3 - Image #4 - Image #5
================================================================================
etc...
================================================================================

I feel this would be the best setup for the type of work I have. But I guess this might be a bit much right now...

Nice listing. Thanks for this!

Not sure this is the right place to ask or not, but...

I have been looking for (and maybe I'm just missing it) a stat that tells you how many sales of each print you've had. I can find the views, but not sales. Is there a reason this isn't available? Thank you!

 

Isabella Abbie Shores

2 Months Ago

No Matt sorry X

Behind the scenes / sales

But it's under the sales not the amount per image

 

Nancy Anderson

I've seen l/f/v in comments on images. Is the following correct? - L means you like it (nothing to do there). F means you check the box to make it a favorite. How do you V and image when it's not in a contest?

Thanks for your help.

If yes, How do I do that?

I am not able to understand how paintings are arranged in fine art America ? Means if I'll go to FAA homepage and click to paintings where did I will find mine and how those paintings are arranged ... How can I get my paintings in starting page??

 

Isabella Abbie Shores

16 Days Ago

Ashish, you can order the paintings on your profile, but not in searches

Searches are, most sold first, and then 24 other criteria we do not share.

Just share your profile page and make sure to market your work. Some good links at the top of the top post

Can anyone explain to me what the pay rate is on FAA? I found the page explaining the premium membership and the extra 5%, but I don't see how we get charged when we sell a photo. Thanks!

 

That's because you don't pay anything. Put what you want to earn and that's what you earn
