When you look at your photos you can only search newest or most popular you cant start with oldest , I find this very inconvenient. 

Not sure how the top photos of the last 24 hours works but one of the photos has only 1 hit   ???

Hi Paul, I think the issue is that users a frustrated with the site, still a lot of issues. My big issue is that ads continue to override the pages I am viewing. I previously spent many hours scrolling through, now at best 10 minutes per day. I have now joined fleetmon not as good as the old site but ok. I know what the owner was trying to achieve however does not work for me. Cheers
Hi Tony,

Yeah the ads are a problem clicking on a photo and a ad pops up.I know I spend less time here as it very hard to navigate around the site especially when using a phone to view the site.

Might have to look at another site maybe Fleetmon if things don't improve here which is sad as the old site was very good to use.
Cheers, Paul   

I have noticed since the switch to the new site my photo views have dropped quite significantly, not sure if its because my photos are uninteresting since the move or less visitors to the site ?     

Whats the different between hits and total hits on a photo? 

I'm unable to log in on my PC but can log on my phone , anyone else got the same problem?

I believe this was brought up a while ago the function to upload a profile photo hasn't worked for a number of years.I tried it about 3 years ago and couldn't upload one then.

Paul, I am not aware of that, I am now using the first generation Canon 1Dx, the third generation also features RAW photography (My son shoots in RAW on the second generation)

Here is a link to what we are talking about, plus another one with more practical aspects.
Pieter I was reading a story on the net a while ago and basically with the newer cameras coming on the market with some them now having 45-50 meg pixel there is no real need to shoot RAW.

Bob admins have never been able to correct photos , nor should we as its already time consuming  making sure uploaded photos meet site standards.

Hi Pieter, the hood will show in the photo on a wide angle lens as it happened to me but it was was a film camera.

I found hoods show up in the photo around the corners if you use a wide angel lens.As for lens filter for the sake of a couple of dollars there money well spent cheaper to replace a filter than a lens worth hundreds of dollars.

Go to advanced search click search then click last page.

Dirk, I agree with you on the amount of photos of the same cruise ships I think there should be a limit. 

Hello Dirk , the photo in question is as Pieter said is unsharp , but it seems you are using a small compact camera going by picture info a Coolpix A900 which are a great camera I use myself sometimes for shots between a fence where the bigger DLSR wont fit,but they do have a limit.Unlike a DSLR the compact digital have a smaller sensor and this seems to be the issue with your photo.More megapixels doesn't necessarily mean better quality it really depends on the sensor size. 

Hope this helps,Paul
