New Feature: The Selected Page

18

We’ve got a brand new feature for the photo section – On the Selected page, we’ll regularly update you with our favorite analogue photos from the community – Check it out and see if one of your photos is one of our first selected!

Von: werriston

We’d all love to spend our days browsing photos on the Lomography website – But unfortunately there’s often just not enough time. That’s where the Selected page comes in! Every day we’ll scour the Lomography site, from all-time classic shots to great new uploads, and present you with the best shots as chosen by the Lomography team jury. It gives you the opportunity to grab a quick fix of the freshest and tastiest analogue shots and we’ll be regularly updating the page with other photos we love!

But the Selected page is also a great feature if you’ve got a little more time on your hands – You can go endlessly back in our selections of the best photos and explore this ever-growing archive of awesomeness! You can also choose to just view the photos or click on the ‘Show more information’ tab to see the title, description, and metadata from each shot.

    Great! I only think you should put a like button under each photo.

    So... it's an amazing gallery and thank you for choosing my pic. But lately I get the feeling I'm always seeing the same pictures here. So, it feels like more of the same. I think I would prefer something like "Amazing picture no one noticed"... Is anyone feeling the same? I hope no one gets offended, as I said, they're AMAZING pictures. Lomo on! :)

    Great feature! And it's cool that we can "like" them directly without leaving the page :)

    @ariannapaloma and @saidseni, you may find what you're looking for on the Homes main page at www.lomography.de/homes . The 'Community Activity' section at the bottom is where we showcase new photos (uploaded within the last 48 hours) with a lot of likes and comments. We are only displaying photos which already have lots of activity, so if you want to be someone who is discovering the coolest photos first and making them popular, check out the 'Most recent uploads' at www.lomography.de/photos . Happy photo hunting!

    Also @ariannapaloma, the selected photos are updated throughout the day, so expect around one new page per day ( ~30 photos), handpicked by us at the LSI!

    @jamesco: Thank you for your reply but that's not exactly what I suggested - it seems to me (correct me if I'm wrong) that's the last uploaded pictures without any selection (New Photos), the entire albums in a row, not the "Amazing pictures...". So, at this moment, I can only see there @fotoglove pictures because it was the last user uploading (I love the portraits!). Also, the "Community Activity" is more or less the "Popular Photo Section" and that is, more or less, the "Selected Pictures". Popularity is tricky. ;) Thank you and lomo on!
