Latest Features and Improvements | March 2022

We’ve got great updates for you!

As we continue to welcome new people to the Arti Community, we’ve received valuable feedback about how you’re using Artifcts in your day-to-day lives and what new features and refinements would help you as you Artifct. We’re excited to share with you a few of the latest updates to your Artifcts experience. 

Options to personalize Artifcts 

Bubbling to the top of recent requests from the Arti Community was the option to add a background image to your personal Artifcts galleries. Some members also wanted to easily share these galleries and some “About me” information. 

Done! Now when you visit My Artifcts you’ll see a pencil icon indicating you can personalize the space. You will be seamlessly redirected to your Account Settings to add a banner and “About me” text. 

In addition, you’ll notice a new icon to access your personal QR code that when scanned leads people to your Artifcts gallery. Add it to a business card, social media profile, certificate of authenticity on your creations, and more! 

To learn more about getting started, visit our FAQs.

Search got an upgrade 

Our new search engine will return even better, more relevant results. You can even now search according to screen names, e.g. searching @heather or @egoody will show you what our founders have Artifcted lately. 

Bonus! When you’re signed in, you’ll see your recent searches and viewed Artifcts directly in the search bar at the top of the website. 

And remember, on any Artifct, click a tag or category to immediately view other Artifcts according to that theme. 

Test it out with this search for #LeaveNoTrace Artifcts that honor our natural national treasures.

New sharing options 

You can now share and manage access to each of your Artifcts directly from the privacy icon displayed on each Artifct. No need to go in and edit your Artifct. 

Want to share an Artifct to social media? You can also now easily toggle the Artifct to Public from the sharing pop up and continue to share as you please! 

For simplicity, you can always grant ‘View’ access to your Artifcts automatically from your Account Settings > Security & Longevity tab. This feature now applies automatically to all of your Artifcts, but you can opt out as you add new people to only give them access to future Artifcts, if you prefer. 

Try sharing one of your Artifcts privately or publicly. Or visit your Account Settings to give someone ‘View’ access to your Artifcts collection automatically! (You can always change your mind!)


Reorder your files to flow with your story 

Make it easier on yourself and others to view the photos, videos, and audio files that go along with your Artifct description or story. Simply click and drag to reorder them as you please!  

Your cover photo does not need to be first. We usually choose a cover photo that’s most beautiful or compelling! 

Try now by editing an Artifct in your collection! Sign in on Artifcts. Or create a new Artifct.

Audio and Video Have Arrived!
We promised we’d “redefine” artifacts with you all because at the end of the day we know that artifacts are truly something, anything meaningful to you. If you want to get technical, here’s how we have redefined artifacts into something of still greater value, an Artifct:
Artifct (noun) /ˈɑː(r)tɪˌfækt/ : something of personal, local, or global relevance as captured by description, category, country of origin, photos, documentation, and audio and/or video media.
Yes! You read that correctly. Artifcts is breaking through the chaos of folders, share drives, and a dizzying collection of subscriptions and services to help you connect the dots and marry the meaning behind the objects in your life with the images, documents, and now also audio and video that bring them to life!
At the CIA Heather and I were “all-source analysts” taking in any and all forms of information to get to the heart of a matter. Artifcts are no different. Grab that photo, memory, and video snippet and preserve something unique, something you can pass down to future generations or simply share with a friend to get a laugh, reminisce, or, dare I say it, know each other a little better than that snapshot of your latest pretty dinner plate allows.
Want to see our new audio-video feature in action? Click to check out any of the Artifcts featured below. And then create one for yourself here from or our app (for  iOS or Android).
Violet's Whistling Coqui Frog from Puerto Rico     Grandma's Daily Biscuits     Sonata Pathetique sheet music
To borrow the rhythm of Shel Silverstein's The Twistable, Turnable Man—at least how Artifcts co-founder Ellen Goodwin reads it—go create those editable, shareable, totally-desirable, exportable, valuable Artifcts of you! 
Happy Artifcting!
