In the Artworks section, click UPLOAD ARTWORKS. You have three options:

  • Click Upload Single Artwork to upload a single artwork.

  • Click Upload Multiple Artworks to upload artworks in bulk.

  • Click Import CSV File to upload many artworks with preconfigured information. 


Upload Single Artwork

You are redirected to the artwork’s edit page, where you can fill out information about the art piece you want to showcase:

  1. Click UPLOAD ARTWORK IMAGE to add an image to your artwork that represents the piece. The maximum file size is 16 MB, and the file type can be JPG, JPEG, PNG, WEBP, and GIF. You can customize the image once you upload it.

  2. Select the type of artwork: 2D Artwork, Video, Sculpture, or Digital Art. Depending on the option, you have different fields to fill out.

  3. Navigate between the Basic Information tab and the Additional Information tab to add information about the artwork.

Note: Some fields in the Basic Information tab are required. Leaving them empty will block you from opening the Additional Information tab.

  1. Click SAVE ARTWORK.


Upload Multiple Artworks

You are redirected to the Upload Multiple Artworks page.

  1. Drag and drop image files or click browse files to open your computer files and select the images you want to upload. Press and hold Ctrl in your keyboard to select multiple files at a time. The maximum file size is 16 MB and the file type can be JPG, JPEG, PNG, WEBP and GIF. You can customize the image after you upload the artwork.

  2. After selecting the first batch of files, you can see them laid out on the page. To add more artworks, click Browse files. To delete all the artworks already selected, click Clear.

  3. To delete an individual artwork, hover over the image and click Delete.

  4. To edit an artwork, hover over the image and click Edit.

To edit an artwork, a popup opens for you to modify and/or add information:

  1. The type of artwork is set to 2D by default. Open the dropdown to modify it. 

  2. You can change the artwork’s title. This field is automatically filled out with the name of the image file.

  3. You can change the artwork’s dimensions. They are set to 30x30 by default.

  4. You can complete the remaining fields with any additional information you want to share about the piece.

  5. Click SAVE CHANGES.

When you finish selecting and editing artworks, click UPLOAD ARTWORKS. Once uploaded, you can browse the Artworks section and edit the artwork to add more information about the piece.


Import Catalog From other Platforms Using a CSV File

This is recommended for large inventories hosted in a storage cloud or online website.

Here you'll find a valid CSV spreadsheet template. Feel free to make a copy from it for your own use. Once you are finished filling out the information, you could download it as a .csv file and use that very same file to import your catalog to ArtPlacer by heading to the Artworks section and following the steps listed below:

  1. Click Browse and select the CSV file from your computer files.

  2. Click NEXT.

  3. The system matches the labels in your file to fields in ArtPlacer to add the data in the columns to the artwork. If there is incorrect matching, and you want to match a piece of data to another field, click a column header and select the correct field. If the file includes data that you want to exclude from the export, select No Mapping.

  4. Click FINALIZE IMPORT. ArtPlacer then indicates the number of artworks that are being imported. Click SUBMIT to confirm. 

ArtPlacer then processes the import and sends you a confirmation email once it is successfully completed. You can edit the artworks after they are uploaded to add more information or modify the imported data.
