Q: What is a Cultural Partner?
A: theArtsweb.com defines a "cultural partner" as a community and/or non-profit organization such as art museums, theaters, ballets, operas, festivals, arts councils, etc. theArtsweb.com reserves the right to deny membership to ArtShowcase by any entity, individual, business or organization that does not fit this criteria. ArtShowcase excludes individual artists and/or businesses. Cultural Partners can display work up to 10 listings. Annual membership is free.

 

Q: Who holds the copyright for the work I display on ArtSale?
A: You do. theArtsweb.com wants you to be successful, so you retain full ownership and copyright of your Original artwork. By participating in ArtSale, however, you will be asked to agree to grant to theArtsweb.com a non-exclusive and royalty-free worldwide license to use your artwork, titles and logos as theArtsweb.com deems appropriate to advertise, market and promote the ArtSale program.

 

Q: Is displaying my Original work online safe? Can't someone steal my artwork?
A: theArtsweb.com suggest you impress a distinguishing 'watermark' on all images showcased in ArtSale, which makes it impossible to print a good quality reproduction of the work directly from the site. Watermarks protect you from unauthorized use of your copyrighted images.

 

Q: What happens if someone wants to buy a piece of my artwork? Does theArtsweb.com call me?
A: No. Prospective buyers are provided with a link that connects them directly to you via email in the event they’re interested in purchasing one of your works. To protect your privacy, your actual email address is not revealed to them until you decide to share it with them. This process of connecting you directly with the buyer enables you to control the sale of your work.

 

Q: What is theArtsweb.com's commission on the sale of my Originals?
A: Nothing. You keep 100% of the proceeds from any sale of your Original work.

 

Q: What do you mean by "digital images" of my Artwork?
A: Digital representations or images are electronic snapshots taken of a scene or scanned from documents, such as photographs, manuscripts, printed texts, and artwork. The digital image is sampled and mapped as a grid of dots or picture elements (pixels). Each pixel is assigned a tonal value (black, white, shades of gray or color), which is represented in binary code (zeros and ones). The binary digits ("bits") for each pixel are stored in a sequence by a computer and often reduced to a mathematical representation (compressed). The bits are then interpreted and read by the computer to produce an analog version for display or printing. In order to upload images of your artwork to the theArtsweb.com site, they must be in JPEG (jpg) format and must be less than 100K in size.

 

Q: What is JPEG (jpg) format?
A: JPEG image format (Joint Photographic Experts Group) is the predominant format used by digital cameras. Even professional cameras have a JPEG mode and despite its lossy compression it has become the de facto image format for electronic storage of photographic images. The reason for this is the JPEG compression algorithm's ability to reduce an image file size by 8 or 10 to 1 without any degradation in image quality (to the human eye at normal viewing magnification). JPEG is supported by most browsers and is simple to use because it offers millions of colors, but does not require any manipulation of the color table.

 

Q: Why is 60K the maximum file size allowed on the theArtsweb.com ArtSale site?
A: In order to offer the theArtsweb.com Artist services for free, it is critical for theArtsweb.com to manage the cost of image storage, processing and transmission effectively. Limiting file sizes to 60K ensures that consumers are able to view and appreciate Artist's images in an on-demand, always available internet environment.

 

Q: What is a Pixel?
A: A Pixel is a "picture element", the dimensions of which are the horizontal and vertical measurements of an image expressed in pixels. The pixel dimensions may be determined by multiplying both the width and the height by the dpi. A digital camera will also have pixel dimensions, expressed as the number of pixels horizontally and vertically that define its resolution (e.g., 2,048 by 3,072).

 

Q: Who determines the price of my work?
A: You do.

 

Q: Can I sell my work directly online through PayPal?
A: ArtSale Manager is easily interfaced with PayPal. It is your responsibility to open and maintain the PayPal account independent of theArtsweb.com. However, we do require you notify theArtsweb.com that you are interfacing your ArtSale site with PayPal and you make clear to PayPal that you are working within the ArtSale environment prior to installation. It is up to you to configure your PayPal buy buttons following the instructions provided by PayPal. theArtsweb.com is not a mediator between you and PayPal. Further instructions on PayPal interface is included on the ArtSale Manager instructional manual.
