How to get your creations into the new Photos archive…

The exciting thing about Photos is that your pictures get to be seen by many more people than just those who happen to visit your Lomohome. How so? By filling in meta information on your Lomographs in the Lab; like the camera or film you used, the place it was taken or any other kind of tag – you automatically send it into the Lomography online Photos archive. So if you have already completed meta data – congratulations – your Lomographs are already able to be admired by analogue lovers the world over!

    "1) Uploads the most new photos with the most meta information filled in on them to 2) Leaves the most Comments and gives the most Compliments on Photos by clicking on the “I Like This Photo” button."

    do we have to do all of this? or just 1 of those things?

    Great job LSI!!!

    Great new feature to get lost in an overwhelming stream of pictures! I like this!! And did this "rumble" already begin? Is it for every day of this week or did it start when the news was published in the blog?
    And I saw that the comments on the pics appear in the lomohomes too, but what about the "I like this picture" feature, could we see in our respective homes too how much people liked our pics? And is the list of tags/cameras/films/places the exhaustive one or only the most important???
    Sorry for so much questions at the same time, but I spent a bit time on this new section, found it great and these are the questions that came to my mind... ;)))
    Keep on the great work guys (& girls) from LSI! :))
