How does the web app look and feel to use?

The website uses a white background and a few varying fonts to create a look that is unique, but not overwhelming. This works exceptionally well considering the purpose of Art Roof and its intended audience.

How does the registration process work?

A new user can get started by clicking on the black “Try Free” link along the left hand side bar menu. The user is asked to choose their package preference (which is billed after the 30 day free trial is up). Next, the user must enter their desired Art Roof URL, a contact email address and age confirmation (all users must be at least 14 years of age or older). The user must also check a second box that confirms their acceptance of the Art Roof terms of use. After entering the security test code (which is much longer than most for some reason) and clicking the orange “Submit” button, the user is advised that they must check their email for a confirmation message to finish registration.

What does it cost to use the application?

Art Roof provides its users with six diverse packages to choose from. The first is the Art Gallery Sponsored package which includes up to 16 artworks, four website pages, an Art Roof email address, built in search engine, web gallery templates, color editor, web based site builder and email support for around $5 per month or just under $25 per year. Next is the Art Gallery 16 package which upgrades to 16 artworks and no banner advertisements for around $10 per month or $100 per year. The Art Gallery 32 package includes up to 32 artworks and six website pages for around $20 per month or $200 per year. The Art Gallery 64 plan includes up to 64 artworks and eight website pages for around $30 per month or $300 per year. The Art Gallery 128 package upgrades to 128 artworks and 12 website pages for around $40 per month or $400 per year. The most expensive package is the Art Gallery 256 package which includes up to 256 artworks and 20 website pages for around $50 per month or $500 per year.
