Avoiding Art Theft From Online Galleries

With the huge growth in online galleries has come a huge growth in theft (or illegal/unauthorized use) of online images. A new 3D flash gallery concept provides 'security' for online images, protecting the artwork and photographic images of artists from around the world.

(PRWEB) August 24, 2005 -- Have you ever wanted to display your work or photos to the world on an online gallery but have been a bit concerned about having your images stolen? Gogofrog’s 3d Web galleries let you display your pictures spectacularly without having to worry about them being downloaded.

Despite the shadow of online music “swapping” still hanging over the Web, the internet has seen a dramatic increase in photo and video gallery sites, both professional and personal. One of the issues with conventional Websites is the propensity that many site visitors have of simply clicking and stealing the images then using them for themselves. Because they are Flash based sites, scores of professional artist around the world are now using Gogofrogs’s 3d Web Space service to display their work with the knowledge that their creations are not being copied by site visitors. Apart from this feature, the 3d format of the sites creates a unique sensory feeling for the viewer. It really feels like you are a visitor observing pictures at an art gallery rather then viewing them in two dimensions on the internet.

Below are some of the amazing 3d Websites created by professional artists and designers. They will give you an idea of the unique design possibilities that this innovative technology creates.

While Gogofrog may lack the grunt of Flickr, it compensates this by putting the artist’s or photographer’s work into a virtual gallery space. According to Gogofrog CEO, the current Webspaces are just a glimpse of the potential that Gogofrog sites can provide for artists and photographers. He says, “This is just the beginning. We intend to further develop our own photo management tools including enabling Flickr and other tools within our Gogofrog virtual galleries. Together with separately listing all our online galleries, we will be providing visitors literally thousands of virtual galleries of artists and photographers from around the world to wander through at there leisure.”
