Download the FAE App:

To get started, download the FAE App by opening FineArtEstates.com on an iPhone or iPad. Go to the footer and select the Mobile App button and Click Download FAE App Now and follow the links. The app can also be accessed through the Apple App Store.

After downloading, log into the FAE App, using your FAE account ID and password; they are synched automatically.



The FAE App is divided into two main sections:

Live View:

Using an iPhone or iPad, by placing a Live View Target on any wall of a home or office, users are able to view artworks from ArtTracker superimposed in real time over the Target, in proper scale and perspective. Users can also name and save the View to My Views on the FAE site and share it with others.

My Rooms:

By placing a leveled* Rooms Target on a wall of a home or office, users can incorporate the Target into an image of the room taken with a leveled iPhone or iPad. The image of the room can be named, assigned to a Project, and then upload to My Rooms on the FAE website. It can then be combined with ArtTracker images to create editable Views in My Views for presentations to clients or shared with others.



Live View: (Designed to use with an iPhone or iPad)
  • Be sure there is at least one artwork in ArtTracker.
  • Print the FAE Live View Target. This Target should measure 7 inches on each side or 177.8mm. If it does not print within a tolerance of 1/16 of an inch, try printing at 100% with the printer’s “scale to fit” or “fit to page” option unchecked.
  • Tape the leveled Target flat to a wall where the artwork will hang.
    (Although Post-it® notes or painter’s tape work well on most surfaces, FAE recommends testing the tape before applying it to prevent marring a wall.)
    • From the App’s Live View mode, click on Choose Art from ArtTracker
    • Choose an Artwork from the list
    • Click Live View
    • Hold the iPhone or iPad so the Target appears in its view screen. The chosen artwork should appear on the screen over the Target closely scaled and in approximate perspective to the targeted wall. If it does not appear, try tilting the iOS device so the Target is out of the view screen and then tilt it back to reacquire it. If the artwork image still does not appear, move closer to the target and try again. Once the program recognizes the target and the image appears, cautiously move back to get a broader view of the room.
    • Once the room and artwork images harmonize, a View can be created by pressing the “Take Picture” button. It can then be named, shared, and saved to My Views on the FAE Website.
    • To try a different artwork, return to the ArtTracker list and repeat the process.
Upload Rooms: (Designed to work most efficiently on a Desktop)
  • Print the FAE Rooms Target: This Target should measure 6 inches on each side or 152.4mm. If it does not print within a tolerance of 1/16 of an inch, try printing at 100% with the printer’s “scale to fit” or “fit to page” option unchecked.
  • Tape the leveled* Target flat to a wall where the artwork will hang.
    (Although Post-it® notes or painter’s tape work well on most surfaces, FAE recommends testing the tape before applying it to prevent marring a wall.)


Although JPEG room images that incorporate the FAE Rooms Target can be taken with any digital camera and uploaded to the website, the FAE iOS App streamlines the process with two options.

App Option 1: Take a Room photo and immediately upload it to the FAE site using an iPhone or iPad

  • Using the FAE “Upload Rooms” App; select “Take and Upload Room Photos”
  • With a level camera, take a room image with the FAE Rooms Target clearly visible and in sharp focus
  • Accept, name the image, and assign to a Project
  • Upload the room image to My Rooms on the FAE site

App Option 2: Upload an existing Room photo from the camera roll

  • Take multiple room images that incorporate a level and sharply focused FAE Rooms Target with a level iPhone or iPad
  • Using the FAE Upload Rooms App, choose “Upload Existing Room Photos” and select a Room image from the camera roll
  • Accept, name the image, and assign it to a Project
  • Upload the room image to My Rooms on the FAE site


For Best Results, follow these Important Tips:
  • It is important that both the Target and the camera are level when taking a Room image. To ensure that the camera is level, line up both sides of the camera’s image viewer with a wall junction, a bookcase edge, the side of a window or any other vertical room element. When all vertical lines in the room and the sides of the image viewer are parallel, the camera is level.
  • It is important that the Target is in sharp focus. After framing the intended shot, tap the FAE Target where it appears on the screen of an iPhone or iPad. A smaller focus box will appear around it. This focuses the camera in on the area of the Target. If the larger center focus box reappears, focus on the Target may be lost so tap the Target again to reset it.
  • Do not photograph the Target head on. The View creation app in My Views works best when the Target is photographed from an angle off axis from the perpendicular.
  • Take multiple images of each Targeted wall from different locations in the room. This is insurance against an out of focus Target or a camera that was not level when an image was taken.


* Creating a Simple Level

If a level is not available, a quick and easy make-shift level can be devised using:

  • A small piece of clear magic tape
  • A 14-inch length of thread
  • A small paper clip, washer, safety pen or any item that can be used to weight one end of the thread
  • Tie one end of the thread to the weight.
  • Tape the other end of the thread to the upper left or upper right side of the paper edge.
  • Place the Target on the wall and rotate it until the edge of the Target and the thread are parallel.
  • Tape the corners of Target down so it is flat to the wall.
    (Although Post-it® notes or painter’s tape work well on most surfaces, FAE recommends testing the tape before applying it to prevent marring a wall.)
