Getting Started: Artists
This page is designed to help Artists get their site up and going.
1. Manage your "Site Title"
The Site Title is is comprised of the artist's first name, last name, and a title for their site gallery. The Site Title appears at the top of web browsers on both the artist's Community Site and Independent Site. On the artist's Community Site, the Site Title also appears on the silver bar beneath the FineArtWorld.com yellow menu bar (Some artist packages do not include a community site). On the artist's Independent Site, the Site Title also appears within the header bar.
How to Edit the Site Title:
2. Upload an "Artist Photo"
The Aritst Photo has multiple locations. On the Community Site, the artist photo is located in the left hand column on the home page, biography page, and other informational pages. On the Independent websites, the location of the Photo ID varies depending on the layout.

3. "Community Site Featured Space"
The Community Site Featured Space is not available for "Artist Basic Members" since this package does not include a Community Site. Artist Basic Members do have an Independent Site Featured Space.
The Community Site Featured Space is the main area located on your Fine Art World Community Site home page. Fine Art World allows artists to upload one image for this space. During the uploading process, Fine Art World automatically reformats the image according to the Image Size the artist selects. If the artist selects the 450 Pixel Wide size then they can enter a title and description for the piece.
For advanced users, the aritst can upload an "swf" file or "flash" file into their Featured Space. Creating flash requires the program Flash and a knowlege on how to use it. Fine Art World can create a flash file for artists, but feels may apply. Contact Fine Art World for more information.
