How To Use Multiple Images To Your Best Advantage
At Saatchi Art, you have the ability to add multiple images to one work. This feature can be used to share different views of your work with the Saatchi Art community. Although the feature is optional, there are countless reasons why having additional views of a single artwork is useful to potential browsers and collectors. .

Give viewers a look at your art in situation

One of the challenges that comes with buying art online is translating the image visually from flat to functional. While our “View in a Room” feature does a good job of providing a sense of scale and appearance, adding an image of your work to a situation can do wonders. To do this, hang the work in your own home, or use Photoshop to convert it into a stock image (although you’ll want to make sure the image is fair game). The above example of william lachance features his vibrant abstract incorporated into an equally energetic room.

Adding multiple images means that it is now much easier for viewers to get a feel for the sculptures at Saatchi Art. Instead of requiring multiple image uploads to an artist’s portfolio to view the sculpture from different angles, artists can now upload supporting images to the main artwork details page for the work. Paintings can also benefit from this, by showing the edges of the work.

Sometimes, as they say, it’s all in the details. Consider your own online shopping experiences, whether it’s for shoes or electronics, you want to see the product from as many angles and details as possible. If you can’t physically touch the product, decision making is based on how best to get a feel for every aspect of what you’re looking at.
With art, in particular, the brushstrokes, or finely crafted details that you’ve spent time perfecting, offer an idea of the work that went into it. Collectors take note of this!
For artists and collectors alike, adding multiple images makes it much easier to find the artwork you love.
