Collections – All new way to browse & share your Lomographs so the best will always be seen!

14

The Photos section is our global showcase for all your Lomographs! And now we’ve added now another way of browsing this section: Collections.

The Photos section is our global showcase for all your Lomographs! There, with your help, the photos are organized in four categories: tags, cameras, films and places. And now we’ve added whole new way of browsing this section: Collections.

A Collection shows the most popular and best photos for one tag, camera, film or place. Be it all the best photos tagged with summer, in Australia or with the Fuji Provia – see these and many more in our Photos section.

So what does that mean for you – apart from having another way of browsing all our photos?

  • Add meta information (tags, cameras, films and places) to your photos
  • Add comments and votes to other people’s photos – so you make sure the best photos are getting popular
  • Suggest Collections you’d like to see in the comments of this post

    but why is it that the "most popular photos" on the photo page are different from the "most popular photos" on the homepage, confusing.

    For this to work surely there needs to be set tags for films, cameras etc. For instance if you tag your film as Fujichrome Provia 100f it will not show in the Provia selection...

    So when I click on the Collection I want to browse, it should bring up a ton of shots right? I'm clicking but it doesn't seem to bring up anything...

    i agree with kernow_and_cambria. i think there might be a problem if a new tag is needed and we cant enter a new tag. like what if a film tag is not showing up from the list? a camera tag is not accurate and we want to make a new one?

    @kylethefrench - I am thinking its a cache delay maybe from one server to the other - just a stab in the dark - but ... small hiccups are good

    I like the new feature but sometimes I get lost! Too many cameras when smetimes they are the same and cannot see inside each collection! That's a pity! But finally the most popular photos are there to show how high is the level!

    sometimes when i go to put a new tag in my film section and i hit submit, nothing gets saved. i have to pick on of the listed ones, but they dont always fit just right. am i the only one?

    @Ilovemydiana - I get the same problem. I'm guessing these are still teething problems?

    @kylethefrench: the difference is mainly for caching reasons. and for the cover we have som stricter rules when it come to explicit content
    @vtayeh: clicking on a collection should show you the most popular shots for one tag, camera, film or place. below these shots you have a link to switch to the most recent ones
    @all: sorry about the film/camera bug in the lab – we are already working on it
