The following defines technical specifications for artist asset submissions and gallery space specifications. Contact us about any information not covered here.
- PIXELS: Image files at 2000 pixels wide jpgs at 72dpi with 75% compression based on the scale of your software.
Example: 8 or 9 on a scale of 12 jpeg compression or 70 / 100 (7 / 10) in others. Otherwise, consider use PNG file type if the artwork contains text that can become pixelated or blurry when using jpeg compression.
- FORMAT: Square image dimensions generally preferred for ease of use across thumbnail display and full-size for optimal view on more devices and web page layouts. Otherwise, landscape or portrait (horizontal or vertical) orientation as appropriate for the artwork is fine.
- COVERAGE: A single image is usually adequate for 2D art; 2 or more maybe required for 3D sculpture. One or close-up detailed images are useful depending on the artwork.
- FILENAMES: Artwork image filenames should contain the following text: Artwork Title-Artist Name-Media-Dimensions.
Example: jpeg filename for an image of a painting is: Still Life-Jane Doe-oil on canvas-3ftx2ftx1in.jpg (size here is 3 feet wide v 2 feet high x 1 inch deep).
- ZIP ARCHIVE: Multiple images and other files are best zipped into a single archive file before sending (see how). After archiving images, change the zip filename to your name before sending. Example: JaneDoe.zip.
- TRANSIT: Email is usually fine for sending files that are less than 10MB. Consider using a service like Dropbox, iCloud, Google Drive, or WeTransfer to deposit large files first then send the link via email.
Note that, for security purposes, we avoid offering forms for uploading files. Please coordinate with a gallery representative to determine the best route to transmitting files
