Make Public Week: Share Your Life to the World!


It’s not the time to get (online) stage fright. Throw away your shyness and go out in public in style with all of your migrated photo albums!

Photo By: rendez2k

As of today there are approximately 2.4 million images uploaded in the Photos page. Now that’s a lot! However, with the recent migration of old albums from the old site, there are only about 1.6 million photos for the public. We want to see those missing photos!

For this rumble, we are looking for the most photos and albums opened for the public – don’t be shy! 10 Piggies go to the 5 users with the most albums opened up so head on over to the Lab of your Lomohome and show the world all of your photos and albums!

    some the statistic of my lomohome it's reported that I have 11879 photo and 418 albums but going to the album section only 143 are showed up while entering the lab I have 414 albums with only one of them still locked! I've also take a count of the photos in the photos section...12065 and not 11879 as reported, the weird thing is that all the old photos I've deleted from the old lomohome ARE STILL THERE!!! WHAT A MESS!!!
