Credits for Doubles with someone else


Dear LSI,

please make it possible to add more than one user to a photo when you make doubles! I would love to have the option in the lab to add my double partner(s), so first of all they get the credits, too, very visible below the photo, second all information (like comments, number of likes,…) and you do not have to upload photos twice to the site.
One reason is “my” Photo of the Day – a doubles with tomkiddo
he shot the more visible part of that double exposure and I get the award.

So PLEASE make that possible!

It also gives more attention to new Lomographers, so everybody is fine.

    I am totally agree with you, and probably we also could tag two cameras, and two locations, etc.
    But at the moment I consider film swaps like a present, I give you an exposed roll film and you can do with it whatever you want and I will be happy if you get good results, I don´t bother if you get some prizes, I´ll be proud of my little contribution to it. Have a nice weekend :D

    to add some ideas also out of writing to @deprofundis
    there are two options: having the photos one time on the site in one album that links to both homes OR having the album on both homes but all likes and comments go to both homes.
    it should also be possible to add more than one camera and location for doubles.

    I think it is diffucult to have both credits in the photo, but I think it would be nice to feature both lomographers when a double exposure photo is "POTD". The same happened to me a few days ago, a split swap with dabai was POTD and I thought @lsi could have named him in the description. ;).

    Wow. That's an exciting issue. Making doubles is deep in the foundations and spirit of lomography, and maybe all of us have missed this feature when making doubles. The concept sounds really nice: if you collaborate with another lomographer to make some doubles, having them and all their metadata in both homes would be awesome. Some kind of mirroring the files and their associated info in both lomohomes. Also including more than one camera, city and country. But I guess probably it is not easy to implement, from a technical point of view. Maybe @recurving has any idea about it?

    Great suggestion. Or what @susielomovitz said-- At least mention the other photographer when a double/swap is made photo of the day.

  44. mafiosa

    Agreed. And it would also be nice to add multiple camersas, locations, etc to truly depict those details of the swap doubles. I haven't read the other comments so if this has already been said, let me just reiterate it.
