Hey everyone! Continuing to push the boundaries of our platform and listening to user feedback, we just launched a redesigned Photo Page. The new Photo Page offers photographers a more visually appealing way to showcase and share their work online than ever before. We have also improved the browsing aesthetic for non-photographers, so you can continue to spend hours watching beautiful photos. Now Photo Page has full-screen viewing, larger photo size, elegant photo presentation with simple design, higher visibility of sharing buttons to market your work, and much more.
Is your favourite feature not on the list? Let us know in the comments below what changes you’d like to see in the upcoming Photo Page releases. We’d love to hear your thoughts :)
The biggest change is Focus View — the ability to maximize the size of each photo for a more dramatic and enjoyable experience. Click on any photo and then use series of shortcuts to browse full-screen. The header is simplified and now includes the photographer’s information on the top left with share and like buttons conveniently located at the top right. Underneath each photo, you’ll find details on the camera and lens, comments, the Popular feed and a visual list of the people who liked or favourited the photo. Thanks for reading & please leave your feedback!
