Features

If you’re an Artist Member of WindowSight looking for help, get further information by logging in and accessing your Guides.

The Image Manager is the desktop workspace where artists upload their art, set up their Showcase and organize their content. In it, they define and classify each artwork, create Collections and send their submissions to the review team to have them published on the app.

Artworks get published on the app after being reviewed by the WindowSight team.

Artists upload their content through the Image Manager on our website. Once an artwork has been properly defined and classified, the artist sends it to the Queue, where it undergoes a quality check. Once it’s validated, it gets automatically published.

Only Artist Members can publish their art.

Artists get insight into their art’s performance on their private Statistics page, where they also keep track of their earnings and growth on the platform. They get information on who is watching their content, for how long, their scope… Which might help them pick where their next exhibition should be.

WindowSight is a social tool. Artists can share their own preferences in playlists, create different Collections of their art, tag their content so it gets discovered easily and gain notoriety through Compilations.

Revenue

If your art is enjoyed, it’s only fair that you get paid for it. Thus, Artists get paid per views on a monthly basis.

Premium users pay a monthly subscription. If users spend time on your content, you earn the corresponding part of that subscription.

You get paid for the amount of time a user spends on your content.

Artists receive monthly payments from the users that have watched them: Premium users’ membership fees are distributed according to time spent on each artist’s content in relation to the overall time spent displaying content. At the end of each month, artists get the total sum from all the users who have watched them.

Each of an artist’s works is tied to a revenue percentage, usually 50%. The percentage applies to the profit generated by the user: their subscription fee minus the expenses generated by themselves (such as bank charges).
