Viewing Images

I've seen little thumbs-up symbols around the site, what are they?
Simply click them if you like the image and/or description (separate entries in the thumb pop-up for each).

We don't know what use we will make of the data, but note that there are number of things we won't do. We won't disclose who is voting (all anonymous), we won't be using it to produce leaderboards, and we won't be disclosing which images that have few/no votes. The general idea is to simply find great content worth showcasing.

See this page for a bit more information, and the general principles behind voting on Geograph.

How do photographs get into the Galleries? and how then do they get into the 'Highest Rated'?
Anyone can suggest images for inclusion in the Showcase Gallery http://www.geograph.org.uk/gallery.phpExternal link just click the 'suggest images' link top right on any gallery page. Viewers can then 'rate' the images using the scale on the right.
You can also build your own collection of favourite images by using the 'thumbs up' on the photo page .
