Rule Number 9 - Afterwards either.
Rule Number 10 – Don’t worry about any rules.

    I can't see all of my Lab images in the Submit options, so I can't select the one I wanted for Number 3. Weird. Also, I cant see all of the ones I've already uploaded, nor can I remember which ones I already have. Lomo website = infinite frustrations, always, I've noticed.

    Ok - another instance of Lomo site frustration. I spent two hours and made myself LATE to the family Easter brunch just so that I could make sure I got all of the tags added to my photos, but I just checked on them in the pool - NO tags appear!

    I added the tags in the lab. Was I supposed to do something differently? The camera info is there, but the tags seem to have poofed!
