1000 users, latest changes and our rephotography contest


#1

Dear fellow rephotographers,

we have some great news to share! In the last couple of days, re.photos got some new features, we welcomed the 1,000th registered user and we hosted a contest on reddit.

1,000 registered users

First, we’d like to welcome all new users who joined during the last couple of months. We hope you like our project and find it easy to use. We’re always happy to hear your feedback and are eager to help you out, should you encounter questions or problems.

Changes on re.photos

Based on your feedback we changed the process of uploading new images. Now, the first step of uploading is the alignment of the two images. This helps you to check if the alignment is possible at all. Only in the subsequent step will you then be asked to add further information (e.g. location, time, description).

Another change is the length of the description field. We now ask you to describe your image and its history in at least 300 characters. By this we aim to make it easier for our viewers to understand the changes in time and to make history more tangible.

Reddit Contest

Our reddit rephotography contest received more than 80 fantastic submissions. Luckily we didn’t have to choose the winners ourselves, but rather the reddit community chose the ten best contributions. The winners received amazon gift cards at a total value of 550 USD. Congratulations to the lucky ones and thanks a lot to everyone who participated in the contest!

Here are the ten winning images:

All submissions can be found under the tag “Reddit Contest 2018”.

To the next 1,000 users!

The re.photos team
