Digital Art
Image for digital art must be the same size as the print size multiplied by 150 and with 150 resolution or DPI.
(Print Lenght x 150) X (Print Width x 150) at 150 DPI
For example, if you want to sell a 12×18 canvas print, the image size should be 1800 pixels (12 x 150) by 2700 pixels (18 x 150) at 150 DPI. Lower than the required size and resolution, it wouldn’t be possible to produce a quality 12×18 print as it will become blurry or pixelated.
To upload a digital artwork, please use the Upload Artwork link on the menu bar as the image of this size will not be accepted in the normal adding of artwork in the Artwork Manager.

To view all your added artworks, go to the “Artwork Manager” in the left menu bar of your dashboard and click “All Artworks“. Your list up artworks will show up along with other information arranged from the latest to the oldest.
