Uploading - A Step by Step Guide

STEP 1. Click on 'UPLOAD' in the header

If you're logged in, this will take you straight to the upload page, if you're not logged in or you're new to the site, this will take you to the Sign In / Sign Up page.






STEP 2. Click 'ADD PICS'

Welcome to the upload page! Here's where you'll add your images, and we give you a quick reminder of the requirements for uploading. Your images must be in JPG format with no personal watermarks or overlaid text, no larger than 30MB, and have a minimum width of 800px.





STEP 3. Find the images you want to upload, select single or multiple files and click 'Choose'

Here's where you navigate to where you've saved the images you wish to upload. You can choose to upload one image at a time, or you can select up to 20 images at a time to add to your upload queue. 





STEP 4. Add a price and info to your images

Before your images are uploaded to your profile, you need to add a price, title, description and a minimum of 5 tags to your images. This is the page where you can add all that info, set a price for all the images you're uploading, or price them one by one. You can even see the price that will be shown to buyers, including Picfair fees, as you update your price. Each field will prompt you for the type of info we're looking for. 






STEP 5. Finishing your images 

Images won't be uploaded until you've completed all the required info. There's a progress bar at the top of each image that will tell you whether the image is 'Finished' or what information it's waiting for. The images are ready for uploading when all the progress bars are green and each image is listed as 'Finished'. 






STEP 6. Authorising and Uploading

Once all your images are finished, the final step is to agree that you're authorised to upload the images in your queue. You'll find the button at the bottom of the page, and clicking it will complete the upload process and add the images to your profile.






STEP 7. Just Uploaded

After clicking 'Yes, Upload them', you'll be taken to the 'Just Uploaded' tab on your profile. Here you'll be able to see the pics you recently uploaded. This tab will disappear soon after uploading, and you'll be able to see your uploaded images at the top of the 'Latest' page on your profile.






STEP 8. Your profile


You're all done!

Now if you go to the 'Latest' tab on your profile, you should see the images you've just uploaded. Whilst the images are visible on your page, and to anyone visiting the URL, they won't appear in search results or be available to license until they've gone through our moderation process (this can take up to 24hrs but we try to keep this as short as possible). We encourage you to share your images and please feel free to get in touch if you're having difficulties or there's anything else we can help with!
