Ready to increase your online art sales? Present your work beautifully by sharing the impact and scale of artwork with potential collectors through the use of in situ images. Offering room views enhances the shopping experience, and increases customer confidence. Creating these images doesn’t require Photoshop or even a high level of technical ability. Check out the tools below and start showcasing your own art in virtual rooms!


This site offers a paid service that ranges from $11 – $59 per month, and serves a variety of clients, including artists, galleries and art consultants. Place your artwork in an uploaded image of a collector’s wall to give them a preview. Or, design and create an entire exhibition of work on a virtual gallery wall or exhibition booth.


This option is a smartphone app that superimposes your work on a selection of interiors. Room settings are updated frequently, and different colored walls are available. Select frames to suggest hanging options, and easily share your images. ArtRooms has a high customer satisfaction rating. Try it for the first month at $3.99, then pay a monthly fee of $7.99.


This cool site lets you customize a mockup right in your browser with an easy drag and drop feature. Use a pre-made template or build it yourself on a “blank canvas” and place your art in the setting. They offer flexible pricing so you can pay for only what you need, ranging from $5 for a single download to $69 for unlimited annual use.


A smartphone app, iArtView is useful for artists as well as trade professionals. Show artwork at scale in a selection from their collection of interior photos. Choose a frame option if desired. Adjust the lighting, select a wall color, edit, save and share easily. Very handy at a fair! Pricing options start at free.


Powered by OhMyPrints.com, their drag-and-drop tool allows you to place artwork or photography in a variety of room setting options, clicking through to choose your favorite, or uploading a room of your choice to customize it. Although you cannot set it “at scale” you can change the size of the art image within the background to your estimated size. This tool is free to use. A small watermark will show up on the final image.

  1. I have about 5 years of experience in art. I do art pretty well but I couldn’t find any good website or tools to sell my art. Thank you so much for sharing the tools with us. I think lots of artists benefited from these tools.

  2. Thank you so much for this great list of resources, I had been thinking this must exist on the internet, and here I found this article with tons of information!! I appreciate your time!

  3. Thanks for this. It’s great. I am wondering if there is something similar for sculpture. I cannot seem to find anything for that

  4. Kathryn Lavelle says

    is there any app that could display my handmade ceramic lights in the same way???

    • Kathryn, see my reply to Marijo about 3D sculpture. If your ceramic lights are not hung on a wall and need to be seen from different angles, you may want to check out the provider I recommended to her.

    Do you know of any programme that will place sculpture in a landscape/on a photograph that isnt 3D? I need to place maquettes in lanscapes so they look bigger!
