Will Scanning Original Art and Selling as an NFT really work?


 I have been asked this question multiple times and my answer still remains the same. Yes. You can indeed scan an original artwork (that is yours) and sell it as an NFT art. However, there are some things you need to take into consideration before scanning your artwork and selling it as an NFT art on an NFT marketplace of your choice.


#1. Picture Quality:

The picture quality of your artwork may be drastically compromised when you scan it, especially if the artwork itself is not in the best shape or image quality. However, there are really cool scanning apps that can help smoothing out rough images.


#2. Size of Image File:

Many NFT marketplaces like Rarible, and OpenSea have an image file limit. In the case of Rarible you cannot upload images with a size of more than 10 MB. You can compress the size of your scanned image using apps or Web-based file converters like tinypng.com.


#3. Image Format:

Most NFT marketplaces will accept image file uploads in .png, .jpg or .gif format. So before you upload your image file to an NFT marketplace make sure it is in the right format.


#4. Ownership of Artwork:

Make sure the artwork you intend selling on an NFT marketplace is truly yours. Copyright infringement is a serious issue, so do not claim someone else’s artwork.


In Closing 

You can scan your original artwork and sell it as an NFT art provided it is formatted in jpg, png or gif and the file size meets the criteria of the NFT marketplace. Also, do not forget to check your image quality before creating an NFT art and paying a GAS fee. If you need more information on this, please visit https://www.digital-art-nft.com.
