How to get the most out of multiple images
Saatchi Art gives you the option to add multiple images for one work. This feature allows you to share different perspectives of your work with the Saatchi Art community. While the feature is optional, there are countless reasons why additional views of a single work of art are helpful to viewers and potential collectors.
Whether it is a stunning close-up detail of a painting or see what a sculpture looks like from different angles, multiple images of an artwork will change your art buying experience for the better. Here’s a breakdown of how they can be used.
Offer viewers a look at your art in a specific situation

One of the challenges of buying art online is to visually translate the image from flat to functional. While our View in a Room feature gives a good sense of size and appearance, adding an image of your work can work wonders in a given situation. To do this, hang the work in your home or Photoshop it into a stock image (although you should ensure that the image is a fair image). The example above from William LaChance shows its lively summary, integrated into an equally energetic space.

Give a 360° view of dimensional works

With the addition of multiple images, it is now much easier for viewers to visualize the sculptures in Saatchi Art. Instead of having to upload multiple images in an artist’s portfolio to view the sculpture from different angles, artists can now upload supporting images on the main art details page for the work. Paintings can also benefit by showing the edges of the work.
Multiple images also make viewing a two-dimensional work easier. (Picture: midnight garden from Sandy Dooley)

Sometimes, as they say, it’s the details that count. Consider your own online shopping experiences, be it 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, how best to capture every aspect of what you’re looking at will aid in decision-making.
In art in particular, the brushstrokes or finely crafted details that you have spent a lot of time perfecting give a sense of the work that went into it. Attention collectors!
For both artists and collectors, adding multiple images makes it much easier to find artwork you like.
