Our newest Homes feature: LomoWalls


We proudly present a new on Lomography: the LomoWalls – a tool that let’s you play around with and arrange photos in different patterns. Please note: this is a preview – so let us know in the comments if everything works out fine. And even more important if things don’t work out.

In case you haven’t seen it yet: some days ago we posted this video showing how LomoWalls are created in the Shoutbox, our Twitter feed and our Facebook page:

So do you want to give it a try? Alright, we’ve still hidden the feature from the majority of our users but to try it do the following: enter your username in this address: www.lomography.com/homes/yourusername/walls – see my first published wall here.

Have fun, bear with us if there are some bugs or it is a bit slow (please give the shots some time to resize). Post the links to your first walls in the comments and share them with us (all the walls will get more prominent place once they are live for everyone). Or any bugs you find. Thanks for your help!

If you have general feedback on our relaunch please post a comment in this article: The next version of Lomography.

    and of course my first wall: www.lomography.com/homes/beanieboi/walls/1
    i went to the prater with some friends last week :)

    Great great job! @recurving and @beaniboi! :)

    For first I have to say THANK YOU for bringing back this feature ... It would be nice if I have the choice to put pics together with and without borders ... because i like it sometimes to mirror one pic to a new one ... So now here is my first Testwall for example ... www.lomography.com/homes/sushi_9009/walls/29

    cool feature boys and girls.

    Love the new walls feature - good work everyone involved! I've created a few - www.lomography.com/homes/dazb/walls

    One suggestion - it would be cool if, when adding to one, we could filter by album/tags etc?

  8. beanieboi

    thats so cool, i love all your walls! :D

    Hey! It is great this feature is back :D But... how are they published?? I have created one but I cannot select it to be published!

  12. kvboyle
    kvboyle ·

    Lovely, lovely, lovely! I'm about to be late for work because I wanted to play with the walls even though I knew I didn't have time....aaagh!

    One thing - would it be possible to number the photos in the 'photos' section of our home in the same way as the selections for comps and lomowalls. Eg 0-60, 61-120, 701 - 760 rather than page 1, page 2, page 3. It would make it much easier to find the ones you wanted when you were entering a comp or creating a wall!

  13. nacarilegea
    nacarilegea ·

    Hey! It is great this feature is back :D But... how are they published?? I have created one but I cannot select it to be published!

  14. beanieboi

    there is a little checkbox next to 'save'. just hit that and your wall gets published.

    too much fun!
    but it's a pain scrolling through 13.000 photos!!! please add a step button (x10, x100, x1000) to move throug the photos! I know there's a tag search but how I can remember with such amount of photos in my home?

  18. spoeker

    my first wall here! www.lomography.com/homes/littlemisslove/walls/84

  23. beanieboi

    @nacarilegea you can only complete walls. you have to fill everything until no more squares are left :)

  25. recurving
    recurving ·

    @superlighter the search is a full text search and should also include album titles, titles and descriptions… but we are thinking about adding more rows to the selector – this might help

  26. nacarilegea
    nacarilegea ·

    oooopps, SORRY, I really don't know why my message has appeared three times.... :(
    But I managed to create it, I was not filling all the photos so it didn't let me publish, thanx!!! www.lomography.com/homes/nacarilegea/walls/44/

  33. domyblue

    Here my walls
    In the photo of this news the pictures in the wall can are cropped with a diagonal, how to do it ???

  34. recurving
    recurving ·

    @superlighter and @mephisto19: thinking of a solution for heavy uploaders – maybe by albums or something else… what would you prefer?
    @domyblue: oh this is photoshop, just for presenting the feature… the tool can't do that (yet)

  35. gnarlyleech

    This is really fun. check out my random Lomography Redscale XR wall www.lomography.com/homes/gnarlyleech/walls/117

    @recurving: Thanks for answer ... (Yet) is a nice word :)

    eurydice ·

    so awesome!!! here's my first: www.lomography.com/homes/eurydice/walls/191

  39. superlighter
    superlighter ·

    @recurving the better solution for me is the opportunity to advance the photos in groups of 10 or multiple x10 x100 x1000, when you have a lot of photos is impossible to do this manually, find a spot in the bar. I do not know if I well explained what I mean

  40. recurving
    recurving ·

    @superlighter: i think i got it – thanks for your feedback, gonna look into this issue!

  41. mairafridman

    yaaay, my first lomowall!

    Hairy harry around Brazil



  42. kylewis
    kylewis ·

    Yeah, this is so much FUN it's OBSCENE I love it and have really missed messing about with walls, love the fact there is no more time consuming resizing and fiddling... WELL DONE!
    I'm also with superlighter as I have quite a few pics as well!

  43. beanieboi
    beanieboi ·

    @mairafridman harry is hilarious! awesome wall!

  44. domyblue
    domyblue ·

    @recurving: I made this new wall
    and I was thinking that I put the photos in the way I like. But the key photo is the first. Do you think could be possible, like in the lab, to have "pick keyphoto" ?

  45. reneg88
  46. reneg88
    reneg88 ·

    and when will we be able to 'like' and comment on the walls? and maybe wall of the day? or of the week? and wall rumbles? ahhhh so exciting!

  47. coca
    coca ·

    wow, this is great!!!!!!
    this is my first try

  48. reneg88
    reneg88 ·

    and here's another one =D

    p.s. we should have a 'go to next lomowall' or something so we don't have to go back to LomoWalls constantly

  49. superlighter

    Wall is God!

  50. tempericarus

    But anyways, here are my walls:

    thanks! :D insn't Harry super cool?

    Great! If we could see more pictures at the same time and not just a line, it would better! Likes and comments too!

  53. vicuna
    vicuna ·

    and here's my Lomowall test! :))
    And like @superlighter and @mephisto19, I think there should be a better way to browse through our photos to choose the ones we want to put in the wall... why not like the endless photowall?

  54. vicuna
    vicuna ·

    and will this wall be the frontpage of our homes? Because this was the great thing about the walls in the old homes, the front presentation of our work, the first thing you see when visiting a home.... if it's in a sub-section of the homes I think it's less interesting....

  69. thaiseb

    Great ! It would be better again if we could zoom the pictures.

  70. superlighter
    superlighter ·

    @recurving you can not make pictures scrolling is sensitive to the speed of the mouse? as if the photos are on a roll? (a bullshit?)
    and another question, the last summer I've spent a sunny sunday afternoon to delete all the old sliced photos I've used to build lomowalls in my old lomohome in the v.3.0 to ease my search and now...they are here again!!!! like in in an horror movie!

    please could you add a Mirror or a Rotate function? it would be perfect!

  81. recurving
    recurving ·

    @superlighter: in general or for the walls?

  82. superlighter
    superlighter ·

    @recurving for the walls, specially a Mirror function it will be usefull. I often reed of lomographers that ask for a rotate function in general, personally I always rotate my vertical pictures in photoshop before the upload

  83. superlighter
    superlighter ·

    a up or down left or right mirror...please! :)

  84. eva_eva

    I aree with @superlighter: a "next" and "I like it" button for the walls!
    and thanks @recurving and @LSI for putting the walls on the frontpage of the homes, that was exactly the missing part of the homes and now we have it again!!! :)))))
    And is it planneded to have something like the "camera experts" icons, or even better, why not giving the possibility to the people to show what lomographic camera they have through an icon system??? :)))

  95. kylewis
    kylewis ·

    Yeah, A 'NEXT WALL' 'LIKE IT" Name it for own reference as well, 'tag' drop down so you can find others like.
    I like Vicuna's icon idea.

    Can anyone please answer how to publish the lomowall? All the lomowalls I have created say "unpublished" and there is no PUBLISH button. How the heck does this work!?

  138. mythguy9
    mythguy9 ·

    You need to check the "Published" box after where you insert the Wall's title. Also you have to fill in all boxes with photos first. I guess most of us had the same problem for our first times.

  139. bearncze
    bearncze ·

    My wall has bugs bugs bugs! It won't let me publish for some reason. I've tried 3 different browsers and it won't work. Any ideas/suggestions?
    Uploading photos also gives me some issues. Sometimes the previews won't load and even the pictures themselves. Helllp.

  140. originalslicey
    originalslicey ·

    I finally watched the video for creating LomoWalls and now it all makes sense! I didn't realize that I wasn't doing the process properly. Here are written steps that I hope can help others who are having problems:

    Step 1) Using the mouse, drag to select multiple boxes in the size and shape that you want.
    *The selected area will become blacked out and is ready to place your photos.
    Step 2) Select the photo you want to place and drag it over the black square on your wall.
    Step 3) Reposition your photo in the alignment that you like.
    Step 4) Make sure every square of the LomoWall has been selected (turned black) and has a photo in it. The wall cannot be published if it is not "full."
    Step 5) Click Publish.
    *The publish button becomes selectable once all boxes in the LomoWall are filled with photos.
