How to get your creations into the new Photos archive…

The exciting thing about Photos is that your pictures get to be seen by many more people than just those who happen to visit your Lomohome. How so? By filling in meta information on your Lomographs in the Lab; like the camera or film you used, the place it was taken or any other kind of tag – you automatically send it into the Lomography online Photos archive. So if you have already completed meta data – congratulations – your Lomographs are already able to be admired by analogue lovers the world over!

Interact

If you like what you see – go on and let it show! On Photos you can now leave a comment or pass on your compliments to its creator by clicking on the “I Like This Photo” button!

Photos Upload Rumble

To get you into the Photos groove we are staging a special a rumble in our Competitions section. Every day for the next week we will be awarding 10 photogenic Piggy Points to the community member who:
1) Uploads the most new photos with the most meta information filled in on them to beta.lomography.com
2) Leaves the most Comments and gives the most Compliments on Photos by clicking on the “I Like This Photo” button.

Go to Photos

So there you have it – uploading and being nice could be the key to Piggy Point prosperity! You know that old saying – you have to give to receive, so give your fellow Lomographers a little sugar and spread some happiness by commenting on and complimenting on Photos.

New Beta features on the Horizon…

Very soon we’ll be able to reveal Homes with some new social features and the Magazine will be giving you even more… and that’s all we’re willing to say, so keep your eyes on beta!

Get started!

Enough chat – time to get clicking! Here is a cloud of the most popular tags, cameras and films and places used. We hope you enjoy what you see!

    "1) Uploads the most new photos with the most meta information filled in on them to beta.lomography.com 2) Leaves the most Comments and gives the most Compliments on Photos by clicking on the “I Like This Photo” button."

    do we have to do all of this? or just 1 of those things?

    Great job LSI!!!

    Great new feature to get lost in an overwhelming stream of pictures! I like this!! And did this "rumble" already begin? Is it for every day of this week or did it start when the news was published in the blog?
    And I saw that the comments on the pics appear in the lomohomes too, but what about the "I like this picture" feature, could we see in our respective homes too how much people liked our pics? And is the list of tags/cameras/films/places the exhaustive one or only the most important???
    Sorry for so much questions at the same time, but I spent a bit time on this new section, found it great and these are the questions that came to my mind... ;)))
    Keep on the great work guys (& girls) from LSI! :))

    So here’s what we’ve been working on: an all new lomography.com

    For the last year we've been working on the next version of Lomography. We based our work on the feedback you’ve given us over the years and we wanted to share it as early as possible with you and can’t wait to hear what you think. Just one warning first: it is still in development and things can break. All the photos, comments, likes, homes and everything else were transferred as of October 16th, 2014. So anything you do on next.lomography.com won't be reflected on www.lomography.com and vice versa. Once we are done with testing, everything you did here will be deleted again. So this is a big playground for you to explore.

    Analogue Archives: The Chakras of Colorsplashing, Revisited

    Chances are you've seen plenty of color-drenched photographs while browsing through the Photos section. Faces painted blue, pets tinted green, and foliage splashed with pink light. It's called "Colorsplashing," one of Lomography's earliest techniques for giving your shots a quick color boost. We dug through the Lomography archives to revisit "The Chakras of Colorsplashing," a special project created by Lomography and Staple Design six years ago.
