How do I upload, edit, and delete artwork?

Below are instructions on how to:


To upload artwork:

There is no limit to the number of artworks you can upload. We invite you to post and sell as many of your artworks as you’d like!

For information on file size restrictions, please see the FAQ - "What are the image file requirements?"

Step 1 – Hover over your name from the main menu and select Upload Art (see below). You’ll be directed to the Upload Art page.

 Or, if you're looking at your profile, select Upload Art in the top right corner, below your name.

Step 2 – Click the Select File blue button at top left (see below) and browse for the image file you’d like to upload. (For information on file size restrictions, please see the FAQ - "What are the image file requirements?") 

Once your work has been uploaded, select the blue button on the lower right corner to proceed to the next step.

Next, select the subject of your artwork from the drop-down menu selection.


Next, select the category of your artwork by clicking one of the 9 thumbnail options.

Next, select the year you have created the artwork, if you would like to sell the original artwork, if you would like to sell Open Edition Prints, and if you are the copyright owner of the image. (Note: that you must be the owner of the copyright to proceed with uploading the artwork.)


Next, throughout the site, your artwork will be displayed as smaller thumbnails which users can click on to be taken to the full-sized version. If desired, you can adjust the appearance of your artwork's thumbnails by clicking and dragging the image within the specified size windows.  



Next, provide the mediums, materials, and the style of your artwork. Then, provide at least 5 keywords that relate to you or the artwork. They can any word that is relative to your creative process and/or the artwork itself. Press "enter" after each word.



Next, provide the accurate size of your artwork. Be certain to note your account's preferred measurement (Imperial/IN or Metric/CM).

If your work is a flat work on paper, we recommend to provide .1 as the depth.


Next, provide the title of your artwork. If you are selling a Limited Edition Print, you will be prompted to provide the total number of editions your printed series.


The art description needs to be at least 50 characters. Feel free to write as much information as you wish to describe your artwork and your creative process. Please also note how you intend to ship the artwork. Your customers will appreciate your explanation so they know how it will arrive to them!


Next, select the method that you will ship the artwork to your customer.



Next, provide the total shipping weight of your artwork. We will provide a tip to help guide you.



Note that you must factor in the weight of the artwork itself as well as the weight of the packaging. For larger artworks that need to be packaged into a wood crate, be certain to note the total size for a large wood crate can be up to 50 KG.


Next, provide your pick up location. This is where we will send the courier to come to pick up the packaged artwork.


Next, provide the price of your artwork. IMPORTANT: The cost of packaging is the responsibility of the artist. You must factor in the cost of packaging materials into your artwork price. For more tips on pricing, see here.


We will show you the commission amount you will make on your sale as well as the total price for shipping & handling. Note that the shipping & handling will be factored into the final price as seen by your customer.





Lastly, select SUBMIT

You will then be taken to the Artwork Detail page as it is now within your portfolio.



To EDIT details of previously uploaded artwork:
Step 1 – When looking at your artworks, mouseover the thumbnail of the work you would like to edit and click the Pencil (edit) icon to go to the artwork's edit page.


From the artwork detail page, click the Edit link beneath the artwork's image (within the Manage Your Art section.)

Step 2 – Make your desired edits in the appropriate fields.
Step 3 – Click Save Changes.






To DELETE artwork:
Step 1 – Click on the thumbnail of the work you would like to delete.
Step 2 – In the Manage Your Art section below the image, click Delete.

Step 3 – You’ll be given the choice to Cancel your decision to delete the image and edit the artwork details instead. If the artwork has been sold outside of Saatchi Art, we encourage you to keep the image in your portfolio--but on the condition that you edit the artwork details by: 1) adding the word "SOLD" to the artwork's title and 2) making the work unavailable for purchase. (For details, please refer to "I sold a work elsewhere! How do I update my Saatchi Art portfolio?") If you’re certain you’d like to delete the work from your profile entirely, click Delete My Artwork Anyway.
