Posting the Artworks on Internet
So have you finished some artworks that you want
to show off to people out there? The internet is best place to post
your artworks for anyone to look at, and hopefully get any feedback and
helpful criticisms. There are some things you need to learn to understand
about posting the artworks on the internet.
Everything over the internet are made up of memory bytes and each byte is a line of 1's and 0's code like 10101010110. Different combinations of 1s and 0s will make different things like how a red color will have a different code from the blue one. Right now, websites and galleries are using the units of Kilobytes (KB) and Megabytes (MB) and Gigabytes (GB).
1 GB = 1000 MB and 1 MB = 1000 KB and 1 KB = 1000 bytes.
When you explore the art galleries and website hosts
and check on the posting rules, they will specify the memory limits in
MB or GBs which are like this question: how much stuff can you put in your
assigned place? They will also specify the limit of Bandwidth
which measures the transfer of memory bits over internet like how many
visitors that can visit your assigned place. Exceeding the Bandwidth
Limit is like getting too exhausted from hosting too much visitors. The
bandwidths cost a great deal of money and electricity, and that's why many
website hosts and art galleries tend to set the limits on how much artworks
you can post there. If they want to have more visitors or host more artworks,
they would have to pay more, and that is why it's best to be most economical
(be cheap!) as possible when posting your artworks or running a website.
Let's say you want to know how big is your artwork in memory size (for Windows that is). Open a window where your artworks are, and highlight an artwork. There should be a number with "KB" on the bottom of the window (see picture below)
Let's move to learn about the tools used to post the artworks on the internet.
