ART GALORE ART GALLERY FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
MAY I SUBMIT DIGITIZED IMAGES?
Yes. Use JPEG format, and submit by standard diskette or as attachments to e-mail. The charge for installing digitized images is the same as for photos or slides. The advantage is the colors will appear exactly as you send them.
MAY SEVERAL ARTISTS SHARE THE SAME HOME PAGE?
Yes. Agents, gallery owners, Internet Circles, artists' organizations, or any pair or group of artists may have a single
home page and show examples of each artist's work on that page. Each image would also show in
the appropriate gallery. One individual must be responsible for all submissions and payments.
WHAT SAFEGUARDS DO YOU HAVE TO PREVENT MY IMAGES FROM BEING STOLEN?
The images we display are purposely kept too small for quality print reproduction. They look great on your monitor screen, but they lack the resolution to be enlarged to the size of commercial prints.
Work that we display online is similar in resolution to the images in a magazine ad or catalog. You can't prevent someone from photographing those printed images, either. But they would have little
use for commercial exploitation. Also, artists automatically have the copyright to their original work, so you have legal recourse if you discover someone is selling your images.
HOW MANY HITS WILL I GET?
This depends on how popular your subject topics are, how much you promote your Art Galore site, and many other factors. The average Art Galore artist receives about 1000 hits per month.
HOW WILL I KNOW HOW MANY HITS I AM GETTING?
Every month, Art Galore sends each artist a statistical summary that gives this information and more.
MAY I SHOW MORE OR FEWER THAN FIVE IMAGES?
You may show as many as you like. If you show fewer than five, however, you
must pay for 12 months in advance, that is $12 for each image.
HOW MUCH ADVERTISING DOES ART GALORE DO?
The growing popularity of this online gallery is due to the concept that each artist will promote his own Art
Galore site. The cumulative effect of many artists, each doing a little promotion with business cards,
brochures, etc., adds up to a lot of advertising.
HOW MANY SALES DO ART GALORE ARTISTS MAKE?
The visitor is referred directly to the artists for purchases. Therefore, Art Galore has no statistics on sales.
WILL ART GALORE REGISTER MY PAGE WITH THE SEARCH ENGINES?
No. Most search companies employ "spiders" that constantly roam the Web. They will find and record your site within a few weeks whether you register with them or not. You are welcome to register your own Art Galore home page with any search company. Just go to their Web site and follow directions.
WHAT WILL BE THE ADDRESS OF MY ART GALORE HOME PAGE?
Unless it has already been assigned, your address will be based on your name. For example, if your name is John Smith, your address will be www.b17.com/smith. If this name had already been assigned to artist Betty Smith, your address would be www.b17.com/jsmith. We use only lower case letters, and so must
you when you give out your address.
HOW CAN I GET A BETTER POSITION FOR MY WORK WITHIN THE GALLERIES?
Just wait. Some of the subject galleries go on for several pages, and the images on the first page will naturally get more hits than those on the last page. In fairness to all the artists, the order of
presentation of the images is determined by random draw, and the order is changed every few weeks. The date of the last shuffle is shown at the bottom of each page in the gallery.
IN HOW MANY PLACES IS A GIVEN IMAGE SHOWN?
Three: your home page, a gallery determined by the image category, and in a gallery devoted to items of the same approximate price.
MAY I SHOW THE SAME IMAGE IN TWO OR MORE CATEGORIES?
If you request it, we will show any of your images in more than one gallery,
and we will bill you another $1 per month for each additional category.
MAY I USE MY EXISTING HOME PAGE INSTEAD OF THE PAGE YOU WILL CONSTRUCT?
Yes. Simply request it, and we will
make your Art Galore home page a threshold to your
personal home page by having a link labeled,
"More work by this artist."
