Project : MyArtProfile

MyArtProfile was a social networking site for Artists. I was a developer on this project while at SEM Solutions. The site is bespoke and built from the ground up on an entirely custom object oriented PHP5 engine. A MySQL database is at the heart of the site.

The MyArtProfile homepage

Users of the site can create an online profile and upload images of their artworks to the site and organize them into galleries as they like. Users can comment on the individual artworks and rate them. Like all social networking sites users can add other users to their friends list and it incorporates a private messaging feature.

The site offers features to search and browse for artworks and artists based on a variety of criteria. There is a "Top 100" list of the most popular artists. The site has also been integrated with a popular web-based mailing list manager which is also powered by PHP and MySQL
