This guide will walk you through the basics of managing your account settings in CMS.
Your Account tab is where all you manage the core settings of your gallery profile, including vital public and private information.
This page is accessed on the toolbar on the left-hand side of the page. When you hover your mouse over the Account tab, a dropdown menu appears. Click on the first option, “Settings.”
Here you can:
- Change publicly visible information like your bio and gallery name in the Gallery Info section of the page (more below)
- Manage your gallery locations in the Locations tab.
- Manage how information about your gallery is displayed in the Preferences tab.
- Change your Billing information.
- Manage your gallery contacts in the Contacts tab.
Editing your “Gallery Info”
In this section of the page, you can update all the core information about your gallery, including
- Email address
- Website URL
- Gallery Bio and Gallery Bio (Mobile)
- Profile and cover image.
To do so, click “Edit” on the right side of your screen in this section. Be sure to click “Save changes” when you’re done.
Use the “Gallery Bio (Mobile)” to provide a short overview of your program for Artsy users. The text entered here will be displayed on the Artsy mobile apps. Use the "Gallery Bio" to offer a fuller picture of your program; this will be displayed on your profile page. These two fields will never appear side by side (because of the different devices) so you may have the same information for each field.
To upload a profile icon, click “Upload Icon” and select a profile picture. Profile icons are generally your gallery logo. The icon should be square-formatted and at least 140 x 140px in size. This icon will be visible on your profile page.
Upload a cover image by clicking “Upload Cover Image.” The cover image will be used to represent your gallery/institution through the Artsy site. Cover images are often installation images.
Changing your Account preferences
Click on the Preferences tab at the top of the page. This tab allows you to manage plan-specific profile page options as well as your default dimension metric, price visibility, and currency preferences. These preferences will apply whenever you upload new artworks.
Depending on your plan type, you will see additional fields to manage preferences on their gallery profile page. Navigate to the desired display options, and click “Save Changes” when you are done.
