How to Prevent Artwork Uploads from Sending New Art Alerts to Your Followers

The New Art Alerts feature is a fabulous no-brainer marketing tool but what if you want to upload older art or add a collection of Prints, for example, and do not want a New Art Alerts email to be sent to your followers?

Here is the process that will prevent those images from being included in a New Art Alerts email.

  • upload images as non art images
  • wait until the next day to move uploaded images to Artwork Portfolio and into any appropriate Collection

The Automated Get New Artwork Alerts runs at Midnight Central Time Zone, USA, so you are safe moving the images as long as it is after midnight CT USA.

Detailed Steps

To upload images to the Images folder:

  • from FASO account Control Panel
  • click on Images icon (upper row)
  • click Add a New Non-Art Image
  • follow the prompts
  • click Next
  • click Continue

from FAQ: How do I upload and edit non-art images?

The next day, move image(s) from Images folder to Artwork Portfolio:

  • from FASO account Control Panel:
  • click on Images icon (upper row)
  • click on the image or the word Edit to open editing screen
  • click on Move this image into your artwork portfolio

from FAQ: How to Move Images from Artwork to Images Folder or Vice Versa

Edit Image Info

  • title your image
    use a descriptive title
    Do NOT include quotation marks or dimensions
  • assign to the correct collection (if you're using Collections)
  • add Vertical Size and Horizontal Size to the dimension fields
    ( If you want to add the inches symbol as quotes [ " ] the quote mark character must be typed directly into the field or copied and pasted from a Plain Text document. For full info, see our FAQ Abbreviating Inches / Using the Quote Mark. )
  • add medium, etc.
  • add retail price to RetailPrice field (especially if using PayPal)

New Art Alerts will not be sent when artwork images are uploaded to Images Folder and moved to Portfolio the following day.
