View Full Version : Artist's Nation and Art Agent

What is the best way to get work on Artist's nation. I have a scanner which I can't get working. Can I just send slides?, or do I have to get them transferred to a disk?
Don't have cash enough to get a new camera, which lets out a digital camera at this time.

I'd like to know the answer to this myself. I have two scanners that i've yet to get working! I get easily frustrated with that stuff!! (no patience...) I have had photos put on a cd & they turned out fairly well. can these be used to post? Cheryl
Cheapest way would be to get your scanner working, Most likely problem is a conflict with either the IRQ or DMA address numbers,
check your instruction book and see if you can change to new setting,Control device manager will give you irq's numbers in use,

Another note on the CD's or floppies from your photos....they will need to be resized from the original that comes on the disks.
The file will be rather large...sometimes creating an image 22x17 or larger.
You will need to use a software program to alter the size and sometimes the contrast/color. You can also trim off unwanted edges around your artwork to show it off to the best advantage online.
The CD's usually come with a software program included and sometimes the floppies will have this also...sometimes not. Then you need to be sure your files are .jpg format for uploading.
At first it all sounds a bit complicated, but actually after a couple of tries, it will be a simple procedure!
You can have your slides or negitives transfered to disk or CD and upload them to Artist Nation. Cost for a roll of film to disk runs about $5 and CD about $10 at the time the film is developed. Not sure if the price is the same at a later time. Call around to different places that develop film like Walmart or local Grocery stores. If you take it to a Film lab or professional camera store the cost will be higher but the results will usually be better. Costs there will run $25 and up for the first image. If you have several photos you might get a price break.

Thanks all. I think I can do it now. We'll see.
