Here's a few things I'd like to see on lomography.com. I think these functions would enhance the site a lot.
1. Better search options.
Searching the entire database of pictures works pretty well I think. Searching by tag, color, camera, film, etc. All great. But what would really help me, is a better way to search just my own pictures. When you’re writing an article and need, I don’t know, that one picture of a boat you took two years ago, it would be great to actualy find it without having to click through 20 pages of pictures. Or through 60 albums only to discover it’s not actually in an album…
In theory, you can search your own pictures by tag in the lab, but than you don’t see the id number of the picture that you need to put it in an article or blog post. Plus, the lab search doesn’t work all that great, for some reason it doesn’t pick up every picture with the same tag.
I would love to be able to bookmark favourite articles, tipsters etc. Of course, I could bookmark them in my browser, but a list in my home would be nice.
3. More technical information on the camera’s in the shop.
What kind of lens does the sprocket rocket have? Plastic? Glass? What is the exact size of the Diana mini? How far does the lense of la Sardina protrude? How much do they weigh? What is the standard shutter time of the Diana? The aperture of the colorsplash?
4. Save option when writing blog posts or articles
Sometimes I start writing an article or blogpost, and can’t finish it right away. It would be great if you could save without publishing, so you can start something, and finish later.
I’m interested in other peoples wishes to make this site even better that it already is.
