What are the steps to setting up a new Art Gallery and adding products?

The Art Main Page is a homepage to all of your Art Galleries. Here you can add new Art galleries, edit your current galleries, modify the style and grid of the page and share it with your audience

In this guide, we will go over how you can create a new Art Gallery and customize the products for your gallery in order to prepare it for your clients.

To get started, select the Art Galleries tab from the main dashboard. 

undefined

Click +New Gallery.

undefined

Creating an Art Gallery

In the Name & Cover tab, you can name your gallery, modify your gallery link, choose the gallery language, upload your cover photo and adjust the focal point for your cover photo if needed. 

undefined

Your cover photo will be displayed as the cover on the Art Main Page only. 

undefined

In the Photos tab, add your photos to the gallery. 

undefined

If you have the Pic-Time Uploader App, you do not need to wait on the Photos tab until your photos are uploaded. 

You can proceed to the Gallery Setup tab. In the Gallery Setup tab, you can add a watermark

undefined

Then, add any SEO Descriptions for your gallery. The SEO tag will help optimize your gallery search potential on various search engines. 

undefined

Then choose the price list for your gallery. It is important that you review and choose a fulfillment lab for your price list before adding the products. When you add products, you will be able to modify the price but you cannot change the lab unless you modify it in your price list. We recommend that you create a separate price list for your Art Galleries and choose your labs. For more information on how you can set-up your fulfillment, click here

Lastly, set the default email package for your emails.

Adding Products

In the Art Gallery tab, you can add products to your Art Gallery. These are the products that you choose to sell through your Art Gallery. Click on + Product and you will be redirected to your store where you can start designing your product.

undefined

Choose a specific product from the store. 

undefined

Design your product. You can choose different aspects of your product like size, covers, print sizes and photo. Each product will have different design options. For example, when designing a frame you can choose the size of the frame, size of the print, frame color and the photo in the frame. Then choose your art photo from the bottom carousel. This is the photo that will be sold in the product. 

undefined

Once you are done designing your product, click Done Editing.

undefined

Now you can customize your product by adding the Art name, image, description and adding a recording. 

undefined

The art name, description, image and recording is located in the gallery where the gallery visitor can view the Art.
undefined

You can mark the item as limited edition and let your client know that this is a limited edition item. This means that you can limit the number of purchases that can be made for this product. 

Set your max amount available for purchase (number of items) and the number of items that have already been purchased (in case you are selling these items outside of Pic-Time). You can also explain your limited edition info. 

undefined

The information for the limited-edition item is displayed at the top of the item description. 

undefined

Now you can add the product specs, such as any additional sizes you would like to offer, specific display name for the variant items and an item description (type of paper, materials, production etc.). Item description is generated from the default description based on the lab you have selected, however you can modify the description to make it your own. Click Apply when you are done. 

undefined

You can also modify the price of the item. For convenience, you can see the cost of the item and the lab. If you wish to change the fulfillment lab of the item, you will need to modify it in your price list

undefined

The information for the product is located in the gallery under the Art name and description.

undefined

Main Page Style & Grid

In the Art Gallery tab, you can customize the style of your gallery, such as background color, font, font size etc. Click on Style to choose a style preset or a custom style.

undefined

You can also customize the grid layout of the galleries. 

undefined

Edit the header or the footer area by hovering over and clicking on edit. You can change the title, text and a photo or a video for your Header. 

undefined

You can also customize the style, grid, footer and header in your Art Main Page. The Art Main Page displays all of your Art Galleries and your personal bio. For a more detailed guide on various style and grid options, click here
