Nimbus display requirements for artwork:
Nimbus gives you control of how your work is presented on the frames. Artists get to set up the images with cropping details for landscape and portrait displays, and more. This allows you to make sure your art is presented in the best possible way (currently all Nimbus Frames are in a 16×9 aspect ratio and can be mounted in portrait or landscape orientation).
This is a sample of an image upload. The artist would Modify their art to present well on the frame, add key words, category and description to allow customers to find their works in the search browsers and set a price. There is a toggle yes/no to turn on and off an image’s availability for sale (life of the account viewing) for any need to remove an image from a collection or studio. Be sure to hit the Save button. After uploading multiple images, the artist can create collections that can be offered for monthly subscriptions. Just click the Collections tab, name a collection and add art to it. Or hover over a picture, an edit icon and a collections icon appear. Click on the collections icon and create or add to a collection.
