Posting onto the site/or to a client (commission)
Download all photographs to PC | Sort through around 150 to find nine or ten good ones | Crop and resize images to a predetermined size and rename to relevant image titles | Run images through a JPEG optimizer to reduce file sizes.
Choose three room settings to place examples in and process through Photoshop | Open website Content Management screen | Create new Portfolio Item | Insert all images | Put additional images into a small gallery | Place all ALT tags on images | Embed copyright watermarks | Insert titles, tags and SEO meta data | Write engaging and descriptive content (typically 500 words) | Finalize price and publish.
For commissioned paintings I crop and resize around 15 images and post to Dropbox | I then compose an email and send secure links for viewing by the client. This process is repeated for each canvas variation.
I need to find a home for the new painting in the Gallery and this may require a re-hang of many others | I print off a gallery information board for the clip-frame | Then when I’m ready I post to Twitter, Facebook and Google Plus | Review the order of the new painting in relation to the others in the Art For Sale section.
