As a bonus, I’m adding Flickr, which is not so much an online artists portfolio site as a quick and easy way to get started having your artwork online.
- easily upload photos of your artwork
- easily organize your work into sets
- easily edit title, tag and description information per photo or per batch of photos
- rotate images online
- view the artwork by browsing through sets, view as thumbnails or view in a slideshow
- add your profile
- add friends and contacts with whom to share artwork
- join groups of other artists with whom you can share your work and discussions
- comment on the work of others and add them to your favorites — and receive the same from others
- bookmark a page or a piece to your favorites, an RSS feed, myYahoo and Delicious, and send via email
- limited to only three sets of images (for free)
- no option to add additional pages for such things as resume, bio and statement
- your name is not part of the URL scheme
- not a true portfolio site; does not appear to the viewer as a professional online artwork presence; hence not for the serious artist trying to make contact with shows or galleries
A great place to share photos of your artwork with family, friends and colleagues; a great place to hook up with other artists and share work and discussions; a great resource to be used just to get started or as an addition to a more intentional portfolio site.
