Cropping is an important part of your composition. By trimming your image to include only the artwork (and the frame, in some cases), viewers can focus on what is most important, the artwork.
Distracting elements, such as hands, feet, tables, tile or any other elements not intrinsic to your work, will have a negative impact from your viewers. It sends a message to viewers that you don't care about how your work is perceived and if you don't care, why should anyone else.
WE CANNOT STRESS ENOUGH HOW IMPORTANT CROPPING IMAGES OF YOUR ARTWORK WILL BE TO YOUR SUCCESS.
Cropping can mean the difference between selling your work or getting a job. Plus, it's so simple to do on Artrepreneur. When you upload your work, use the edit button, as shown below, to find the cropping tool.
