What can you use the app for?

Pictte is an art based website that allows users to give and get feedback on their creative work. The user can post their artwork to Pictte. This is done by trading in points. A new user is given enough points to post a total of two works. To earn points, users must be active on the website. This includes providing feedback and critiques to other users who post their art. Users are encouraged to supply constructive, helpful feedback that will allow others to grow and become better artists. Through the site, the user can showcase their work and grow their artistic talents and skills as well as learn more about how to be a good artist. Users can participate in critique discussions and submit art revisions. Users also earn karma on the site. Th karma rating determines how much of a point bonus the user will receive. Karma bonuses do not begin until the user has earned at least five karma votes in their favor.

How does the web app look and feel to use?

The Pictte website uses a calm blue and white color scheme offset by a solid black footer bar at the bottom of the site. The top is grace din a blue, lightly textured header that features the website logo in white hovering over a gently waving line. Six links are found across the top of the page as well as the search tool bar that allows users to seek out specific art pieces by keyword. The homepage features thumbnail images of artwork which fades out to reveal the artist and name when the user mouses over the image.

How does the registration process work?

A new user can join the Pictte community by clicking the white “Register” link in the upper, right hand corner (to the left of the search bar). The short form appears on the following page and asks the user to provide a username, password and email address. The user can click the light green “Register” button at the bottom of the form to submit their information.

What does it cost to use the application?

Pictte offers access to all users for free. There are no subscription fees or other charges for accessing the site. This is definitely a good choice that will encourage more users to participate. The more artists that are active within the Pictte community, the more value there will be for each user who is searching for honest feedback.
