| A number of ZAPP shows are requiring prices as part of the image
description and ZAPP has added it as a required field. But for a lot of
artists, the required field came too late as they've already had their
images uploaded and have applied to multiple shows. When completing an
application, the images become committed and can't be modified (have their
descriptions changed) unless the show you've applied to frees up the
application, making it incomplete. The problem is that one show may free
up the application but the images remain committed because you've also
applied to a different show with the same images. This also applies to a
show asking you to add any image descriptions or sizes that were
omitted prior to applying.
There are two workarounds.
The first is to upload a second set of images and fill in all the details
and use that second set to complete the application for the show that
requires the prices.
| The second (and easier) workaround is to "Duplicate" the images and
add the required information and then switch the images in the application
to the ones with the proper details (prices) that the show requires.
| I've created the following 4 screen captures to help artists duplicate
their images and add the correct details to complete their application.
| After saving the changes in the last step, go back to the application and
under "apply to this show", you will see your chosen images with checks in
the boxes next to them. Switch the checks to the duplicates and click on
the link to complete the application.
| Another tip.
To make sure you know which is the new duplicated image with the correct
descriptive information. On the fourth step where you enter the
information for the image, Add something to the name of the image so it
stands out in the list of images to pick from to complete the application.
For example, I could have changed my image name from "01 Tulips in Crystal Vase"
to "01 Tulips in Crystal Vase - dupe". Anything to make the name of the
new image stand out from the name of the old image so you don't pick the
wrong image to complete your application.
| What you can do.
To not run into this problem, make sure to add the descriptions, prices
and dimensions to each of the images in your profile prior to applying to
a show. You need to be aware of this, especially if you've hired someone
to prepare and upload your images because the minimum amount of
information necessary to get your images to upload is not enough to
satisfy the shows you'll be applying to. For example, I've uploaded images
for hundreds of artists and have always added the number "1" to each
required field, the minimum amount of information to allow the image to
upload. Then I e-mail the artist a link with username and password giving
them specific instructions on how to add the required information.
Under manage images, click on the "duplicate" link (red
arrow) to create an exact copy of the image that needs to have information
You will receive a warning asking if you want to
duplicate the image.
Next you will see an enlarged version of the duplicate.
Click on "Modify" (red arrow #1) to add the price (red arrow #2).
Enter the price (red arrow #1) and click on the "Modify
Image" button to save your modifications (red arrow #2).
