First thing’s first: if you wish to create a collection on SolSea, make sure you create it before you start minting the NFTs that are part of that collection. Read more about how to create a collection in the section “Collections: create and edit”.
Create a profile on the platform (if you don’t already have one) and make sure your connected wallet has SOL on it. Before you can start minting, make sure that you have enabled the feature Do you want to be creator? on your profile. You can do so by going to My Profile > Edit Profile.
Once that’s set up, go to Create NFT on the left sidebar, and follow the steps described in the form. After you mint an NFT, don't forget to click the “⟳ Reload” button in your wallet to sync the data - you'll see the newly minted NFT appear in your wallet!
Note that once an NFT is minted, it cannot be edited! So keep an eye out for spelling and typing mistakes.
Is there a size or file limit when minting NFTs on SolSea?
Every NFT must have a main file (currently SolSea supports: .jpeg, .png, .gif, .mp4, .mov, .mp3, .wav, .ogg, .m4a, .pdf) and the size limit is 40 MB. This file is required for minting an NFT.
Along with the main file, there is a static preview and an animated preview (the size limit for both is 10MB). The static preview (image or gif are both accepted) is currently required for minting NFTs as well.
Does SolSea support audio and video NFTs?
Yes, SolSea supports both video files (.mp4 and .mov) and audio files (.mp3, .wav, .ogg and .m4a), on top of image files (.jpeg, .png and .gif), as well as PDFs!
What are the transaction fees for minting NFTs on SolSea?
No, editing NFTs is impossible as the information is written on the blockchain the moment an NFT is minted. Please make sure all the details are correct before you click "mint". If you mint an NFT that you are unhappy with and wish to edit, the only option is to burn it and mint it anew.
Can I create multiple NFTs per each art piece?
At the moment, it’s not possible to create multi-edition NFTs.
