This article will review Artsy's view-in-room feature. The view-in-room feature is just one of the many Artsy tools designed to help collectors evaluate artworks for purchases on our website's desktop version at the artwork level.
The recently improved view-in-room feature allows collectors to visualize the scale of an artwork by placing it in a museum context with a standard 8" museum bench. This feature is available on all two-dimensional artworks, just below the image on the artwork page, and it’s yet another great reason to remember to add correct dimensions to all your artworks.
In order for the view-in-room feature to be available to a collector, height and width dimensions need to be entered for the artwork in CMS.
As the view-in-room feature is only enabled for two-dimensional works, a collector is not able to click on it for three-dimensional works. A reminder that the view-in-room feature only works for artworks with height and width dimensions. Works with a diameter or depth dimension cannot be seen in the view-in-room feature.
Note: When uploading images on 2D works, Artsy will enable a view-in-room feature to users on desktop. Only upload cropped images so they may be supported in view-in-room.
