Hi Friends and Fellow Artists

When uploading your artwork here, please place your images upright. There are many uploads that do not make it because e.g. your landscape is 90 degrees instead of portrait (upright). You can't have people placed (one painting of a lady walking vertically up the wall will not cut it)

Honestly, I do not have the time to edit all the artwork that comes in and neither has my 2 staff members and so the sad part is they do not get published.

There are free pixel editing tools you can use to manipulate your images. If you have photoshop, even the old versions, that's all you need. is a no cost pixel software.

Another important point is please CROP your image - crop all the extraneous things in the background. Who want to see washing on the line or a pile of dishes to be washed. All this nonsense detract from your artwork and LESSENS the quality of your work.

Okay, no more gripes today. Notice that if you artwork in not published you've ignored what I've written above.

Thanks for reading,

Best regards, Jon

PS: Here is something you might like to see: it is all about using your camera WITHOUT a filter, just using your DSLR camera. I do not think when you have a look at these images in the link your cell phone might do but I do not think so. Worth a try.

Here's the link to unusual photography which is also inspirational: You might even manage to create an image that goes viral?
