Artist Website Templates And Header Slideshows
Many artists are troubled because they are in the business of presenting visual and physical works in a state of perfection. They can create jaw dropping beauty in stone or haunt any eyes which land even a glance on what they have created with oils and stretched canvass. But they cannot afford the cost of what has become a required digital frame or gallery for their work, and they simply have no idea how to build a website which matches the artistic standards their pieces meet. And even a very simple free artist's website would do the trick. A nice header image, or slideshow header premiering your best work - or what is currently being displayed in a gallery, and a blog with easy to use text editors and picture uploading capability is all you really need. Well, all that plus a descent looking template, but that may be too much to ask. Most good artist website templates out there today are proprietary and have been designed by high cost web developers.
The good news is Doodlekit has a free website building and hosting solution for artists needing a website for the first time. No programming is required, and all of our editors and applications are user friendly and easy to learn. If you have ever worked with any graphic design software packages, presentation builders, or word processing programs, you'll likely find Doodlekit a piece of cake to use. If you even know some of this plus how to surf the web, and you have a number of images of your work already saved to your computer, we bet that you can have your own free artist website up and operational in a matter of hours!
Just to give you a taste of what you can do with your own online gallery, our web building software helps you create headers depicting your own work just by uploading it directly into our header library. You are given a point and click graphical interface that is entirely visual and intuitive. You are given the option of uploading several headers, and then creating a revolving album of it all, which your visitors will see the very instant they first land on your site. Blogging is made easy. Once you've logged into your site, just click a red button titled, "Add Blog Entry," an easy to use text editor pops up, and you type and upload pictures into the editor. Do a little self evident formatting and proofreading, hit "Save," and your first blog is instantaneously published to the world. And last but not least, our template wizard gives you complete control of exactly how your artist website template looks, down to the colors, the fonts, the dimensions and placements of your side margins, footers, and even the main body of your web pages. Not only this, you can opt to have your blogs open to comments or not. You can hide pages you don't want others to see, and you can link all of your social media accounts to your artist website.
