I am new to Instagram and just learning how to use it. I see that Carol Marine and some other DPW artists are posting pics of their auction paintings. They are using # s to link to the auctions. They post something like this:
HTTPS://www.dailypaintworks.com/buy/auction/ 00000 (the number of the auction)
Where does one find the auction number??
I have quite a few auctions up, but I can’t find any auction numbers for them.
Ahah! I found it. If anyone else is interested… Look on your Art Tracking and BUY URL. Click on it to the the Auction number. You only find a number if the painting is in an auction.
I too found the only way to upload a photo was to email a photo as an attachment to myself from my laptop computer and open it on my iPad. Open the email and save it to your library. Then you can post it in Instagram. One has to learn all these tricks. It will be interesting to see if this brings in more views / sales to my DPW. Here is hoping.
Ok now I really feel like a dunce. You can get the link to any DPW painting, auction or not. And I discovered I can open a DPW image of mine, holding down my finger on my image and copy or save it to my iPad library, However, for Instagram the image is not too clear and it is too big (if it is not square). The images I emailed to myself from my laptop were much clearer when posted to Instagram. Still exploring… still learning. Life is a challenge. … but worth it.
