What benefits are there from using GalleryinaBox?

With our websites you can make all the changes yourself with no technical experience necessary, and therefore do not need to employ any web programmer or third-party company to change your website. This allows your website to be far more responsive to your users, ensuring information is always up-to-date. The maintenance screens in GalleryinaBox are very easy to use and the setting up of a new exhibition is a quick and simple task. With GalleryinaBox, you will be able to allow users to download catalogues, view your latest exhibitions, works of art and Gallery events

Can you help me sell items over the internet?

GalleryinaBox has a built-in secure online shop, and payment processing facility, which you can use, or we can integrate your current set-up into your website.

Will I be able to load my data directly from a database?

Yes - you can save considerable time and effort by exporting your data directly in a few seconds from our partner, the ArtScene Gallery Management System. Within the ArtScene system, you simply select the records you wish to export and press just one button. Your data is validated and then uploaded into your website. If you do not have the ArtScene system, you can acquire this with a discount when purchasing GalleryinaBox, or at a competitive price any time in the future.
You can of course enter all the details quickly through our user friendly maintenance screens if you do not have Artscene in your gallery.
To export approximately 500 records from ArtScene takes just one second and a few minutes to upload onto the website - compare this to the amount of time (probably a few days) it would take to manually enter the information.

Can my visitors download my latest catalogues?

Yes, GalleryinaBox supports multiple file formats, enabling you to publish your catalogues online for download. They can be linked into online exhibitions and further information.

How many images can I show on my website?

You can have approximately 30,000 to 40,000 images, depending on size. We do recommend restricting the dimensions of each image to a reasonable size so that web pages are loaded quickly, maximising the user enjoyment of your website

Can I show more than one image relating to the same work of art?

Yes, GalleryinaBox supports an unlimited number of images for each work of art.

Will changes that I make to my website be published online instantly?

Yes, all changes to your data and images on the GalleryinaBox system are active immediately. This allows you to keep your information completely up to date. For example, once a work of art has been sold, you can remove it from your website in a few seconds, or update it with a SOLD note. You can add new works of art just as quickly.
The entire process of placing a work of art on your website will take you just a few seconds.

Do I need any special equipment to run my new website and content management system?

No, the website can be viewed and updated from any computer with an internet connection.

Will I need to change my current domain name or email addresses?
