Relaunch: New Lab (upload tool) and Homes (your gallery)

Some days ago we kindly asked for some test users to try out our new Lab. We got great feedback from you - positive and constructive. This helped us a lot to improve everything and now the time has come to launch it for all of you. Bear in mind that it's not completely finished yet, some features will be worked in over the coming weeks. Even so, we are more than happy to hear your feedback.

A shot from the Lab & Homes newsletter photo shoot

Some of the main features of the new Lab:

  • Use tags to describe your images
  • Link images with a location
  • Upload multiple shots at the same time
  • No need to resize your images any more
  • Tell people the film as well as the camera you used

So if you’ve already activated your beta account, please give it a try at beta.lomography.com/lab – if you haven’t made the move yet, please do so at beta.lomography.com/signup. Read a tutorial on how to use the Lab here!

But what use is the Lab with nowhere to display your images? Homes are your personal little corner of Lomography. We’ve been hard at work on them too. Not all features are up-and-running yet. Right now Homes on beta are for image presentation only – but look out for the new social features that will be coming up soon! Visit Homes at beta.lomography.com/homes

  • Receive comments from other users
  • Search by tags, cameras, films and locations

And don’t worry – your old Lomohome and its images and albums are safe on lomography.com! Everything will be integrated on the new site once it’s finished.

Let us know what you think and please report any bugs you stumple across. Thanks again to you and especially to the team behind beta (as this is said all too rarely).

    soooo when I upload images via the new lab those images/albums are visible in my new home and my old lomohome?! But the albums of my old lomohome are not yet in my new one...am I getting this right?

    The images you upload in the new Lab will only show up in the new Homes. There will be the possibility to migrate old albums and images from your old lomohomes, but not the other way around.

    That all seemed pretty straightforward! Much improved now that resizing is done automatically. The buttons where you click to add the camera/film info were a bit sluggish though.

    sooo, my home will bit by bit be transferred to my new home - or at least the albums I want to have in my new home....but I don't have to upload all my images again through the new lab?!?

    why are people saying that we have to transfers all our images ourselves? i thought lsi would do that.
    "Everything will be integrated on the new site once it’s finished." what does this mean?

    is it just a gallery now like flickr? no more lomowalls? i liked those randomly arranged lomowalls when i upload albums in my old lomohome, and the profile wall that i can customize.

    dear all! this is still not the final version. right now the homes are a gallery for your uploaded shots - but no worries, features like the lomowall will come, too...

    50 images a day? well it would help if there is a running clock and calendar on the site so people from other countries will know when they can upload again

    @babybath I guess with 50 being such a high limit it's more a soft limit. Did you already try uploading more than 50?

    It would be nice if the username would be listed in a caption below each image in the "most recent galleries" and "most recent user uploads" like on the old site. Yes all for the lomowall.
    I'll probably begin uploading my first 30+ rolls since January when the site begins to come along a little further.

    @babybath: If one reaches the limit a count down appears which shows the time until the reset. The upload limit is probably only temporary - we added it because we wanted to have some control over the server load after the launch.

    @graefin: You will be able to choose the albums you want to migrate to your new home.

    Also other information from the old homes - like the guestbook entries - can be transfered.

    @smarts: You can select multiple albums in the Albums view with CTRL/Cmd/Shift click; after switching to the selection view they can be arranged to your wishes.

    Well, I guess i´m too stupid to use this thing. Yesterday I could upload 2 in a newly created album. I can´t seem to get another photo in my only album since then. So switching between albums is not my problem.This is like higher science and therefor not useable for me, I guess. I realise your still developing. I'm using Vista and FF, but IE doesn't do the trick either. Good luck on developing!

    @tomk32: yup now im in the process of uploading 14 rolls of film O_o
    I noticed the count of how many i've uploaded for the day. Right now I already reached the limit. I guess I just have to be patient. Its ok no biggies :-)

    ah, forgot to come back here yesterday. was a bit fiddly first but I caught on fast. nice work with the shift and ctrl moves~
    I'm liking the tag pop-up suggestion thingie but I guessit could be optimized with prioritizing tags that already have been used by the user. so use that tip, or just take a break and drink some juice. hahaha~ cheers!

    The upload thingy is neat!! When do you expect to be done with the betas? I don't feel comfortable working on two sites.

    Sorry.. just posted twice. I was confused because I expected the newer comments to be on top and not down here. Also, you should be able to edit/delete your own comment.. in case somebody screws up like I did.

    i wish that there was a way, like with the flickr uploader, to be able to tag your images before you upload them (like in the metadata of the image, for example in adobe lightroom you can do this, and i spend hours doing it so i don't have to type my tags twice) is there any hope of an uploader such as this?

    i LOVE that we can comment on individual pics, and i LOVE the ease of uploading compared to the old lomohome!!

    and i would LOVE it even more if there was a way to view the other thumbnails of images in an album while you are titling an image so you can go directly to that image you want to do next rather than having to go back, and then click the image :)

    you guys are making things leaps and bounds easier!!! i can't wait to see what's next!!!

    When will you migrate the World Archive into the new site? As it is now I have to upload my images to both the old and new home if I want to submit images to LWA (and the World Browser)...

    Secondly, is there any possibility that you could help me change my username on the beta site...? When I migrated my account I got an error trying to use my old nick-name "Anarchy", so I came up with a new name. I just recently realized that it could have to do with the capital "A"... Apparently there's an inactive user on the old site with the name "anarchy" and I have the name "Anarchy". Anyway, what I want is to change the name "lomodocteur" into "anarchy" on the new beta site...

    Last, but not least, all the new features are looking very promising, great job!!
