I’ve been renewing some content on my Pixels print shop today. In truth, since re-opening the account there in 2020, it hasn’t seen much love — from either me or anyone else. However, as I do see an email from them telling me even my old images on there have been looked at every week, I thought perhaps I’d give it a bit of attention.
I actually like the Pixel image uploading process more than the one at Redbubble. Once I’ve set my defaults on Pixel, I don’t have to remember to go down through disabling the products I don’t want my pictures to be on. If I forget that part of it on the Redbubble uploader, my shop on there ends up offering my pictures on shower curtains, socks and tank tops, amongst other things, and I very much do not want them on that sort of product.
However, I do allow them both to put the pictures on things like greeting cards, they make a great way of gifting a little bit of art for not much cash.
Balanced against that is the fact that Pixels, being a part of Fine Art America, haven’t heard of metric measurements — not even offering an option to have them — but inch measurements are probably more familiar in the photographic print context anyway, given that a well-known format like a 10 x 8 print comes out at 25.4 x 20.3cm in metric, for example. They also capitalise my titles when I deliberately haven’t — some ‘land of the free’… sorry, ‘Land of the Free’ they’ve got over there.
Anyway, the shop is here if you want to have a look.
You may notice the first image on the screenshot is a new one I’ve added, so I’ll post that here to try to make up for the thinly disguised advert above…
As usual, you can get a bigger picture by clicking on it. And that way, you may be able to pick out the dog running on the beach too.
