A Different Visualization of One's Likes in the LomoHomes

2012-01-04 52

In 2011 exactly 9,184,059 different items were liked on Lomography, a majority of those being photos and articles. Right now, you can see a person’s photo likes in their LomoHomes, but what if you wanted to see which articles you have liked? Or someone else’s? So, we thought about a different visualization of one’s likes.

One of my liked photos – it’s by filby and has nothing to do with this article really…

So wanna see how it looks like? Right now it’s only unlocked for me, just wanted to get some feedback of you before we roll it out! You can find it at www.lomography.com/homes/recurving/likes – let us know in the comments what you think of this!

    Like it, it's very "artistic" :)

    love it. You know i love a pinboard! ;)

    Super. Articles should come with a tiny preview pic too I think. Would make it more visual and clickable.

    I like it! sometimes I want to look for an article I liked but it´s very difficult to find it. With this it´s going to be easier.

    Love it! It does indeed look more like pinboard. Very strong.

    A really nice idea and I like the layout, but it would be nice to also have an option to categorise it by article type, or maybe camera or film, similar to the tag clouds you get on some of the photo pages.

    I like, this is indeed handy for searching for an article you liked, and I think it looks better too.

    That looks cool! Looking forward to when it comes to all of us! :D

    very cool! i agree with @simonh82 that some categorizing options would be helpful, like an option to ee liked photos, blogs, tipsters, or walls

  14. vgzalez

    I'm with @traaaart and @simonh82, would be great if we could apply filters or perform searches. I love the pinboard design. Quite "Pinteresting". :)

  15. vicuna

    Cool! But would be great to have the choice between different options of presentation with filters...?

  16. civcivli

    me likey! i wonder when will it be available for us.

  17. kneehigh85

  18. twinklecat

    I agree with @webo29 and @simonh82 and @vicuna. How would the user's profile and photos be displayed?

  19. trw

    Very nice!

  20. adam_g2000
    adam_g2000 ·

    Like @traaaart I think it would only be useful if you could filter it. I agree with @vicuna also. I would want to see it perhaps as a leader filterable by photos and articles. I would be upset if the current basic view of photos was removed as it allows you to see those you've liked very quickly with no/little scrolling.

    Looks like a good idea; I'd like to see all the different things broken up into different tabs. Oh are we going to get a Blog ticker tab on our home face page? Like were Completeness percentage is and all that.

    Like the photos but not too sure about the articles, maybe they need more of a border or something? Kinda reminds me of a big lomo-wall of likes!

    I love this feature! I had been wondering why I could access all my liked photos in the Likes section but not my liked articles. I also love how we now have a complete view of all the photos instead of just thumbnails

    It's awesome! I was only thinking this morning I would love a way to see all the articles I liked, sometimes you read a few, like them, and forget some of them or can't find them :( Some more filtering would be good. I hope it's available for everyone soon!

    A Color Remix

    It's human nature to be restless and imaginative. The real may be interpreted as what one sees or how one sees something. For the daydreamer, a scene from nature transforms into a canvas. Suddenly a field makes room for chemical coloring, all those anachronistic streaks that somehow look right. Or else, those beautiful colors amplified or subdued to their most pictorial shades. All in the world of trial-and-process film photography.

    How to Develop Photos on Stone in a Darkroom

    I have always loved the idea of seeing my photos on stone and other natural materials. So, a few months ago, I began googling how it could be done. This is how I discovered (and fell in love with) liquid emulsion. Liquid emulsion is photographic emulsion which you can melt down and paint on any surface. You can then expose an image and develop it using traditional darkroom chemicals. In this article, I would like to explain the process a little, so that if you are also interested in giving this fun process a go, you can!
