This would be a great feature. The one downside to Pixoto is that once you get beyond the Duel, theres not much to explore peoples work. Like when you image duel, it would be cool if there was a link that would allow you to open the image in a new tab. Say I really like an image, and I want to go see who created it, or see what the title and caption is. It would be great to be able to do that. Or sometimes, even with bad images, I would love to be able to click on the link and give the author some feedback. Hey should try this filter or expose for this time frame etc... Criticism is always hard to take, but sometimes a simple fix would make the picture a ton better and every time I have suggested something, the author has appreciated it and used the criticism to learn. Since Pixoto is full of amazing photographs, but tons of beginners and intermediates like myself, are learning and trying our best, feedback would be great. Sometimes I dont get why an image I take that I really like, does poorly, but an image that I think is mediocre takes off. In the current format, I have recieved no feedback. If my image were in the top 20, i occasionally get a comment, but I am more concerned about the good images that sit at the bottom of my ranking. So it would be a cool feature to have that link below each picture. It could open in a new tab, and allow the user to keep voting and eventually they can go check out the photos in a new tab, and comment, or share, or just view more of the authors work.

Good points Justin. I see so many really nice shots that the horizon isn't level, or there is sensor dirt. Those would be simple fixes that would certainly improve someones score if they resubmitted with the correction

You can find a photographer using your favorite search engine. Enter Pixoto and the photographer's name.

Google "shirley mangini pixoto" and you get pages of references to her pix and her Pixoto Community comments.

Even a dim bulb like me gets plenty of hits.

Ever get the feeling that life is blue-green, with just a touch of itching powder?

And if you select "images" you can see all the member's submitted pictures in a rather usable resolution of approx. 900 by 700 pixels...including the title and the category it was submitted.

I would love to be able to explore another photographers work when I see something awesome in the duels.... you should do a fix so we can just click during a duel and it takes you to the photogs. page... and we also should be able to search for a particular photographer... it hampers people from following you or your work if they have no way to know how to find you..

If you know who you are dueling against that may change the way you would vote. Voting in duels should be based 100% on the photo itself and not the photographer. I am all for being able to do an easy search for a photog by name though. As it is now you have to go to google and put in the photogs name and the word pixoto and it will bring up his profile.

I think being able to search by name would be neato as well, especially if you have friends that are playing but don't know their specific link.. I find my friends on here thru FB posts!

Hi all, to search for a specific photographer you should go to the leaderboard, then choose top contributors and then enter the photographer you are looking for in the search box (just below "Top Contributor" drop-down menu).

Here is the link: https://www.pixoto.com/players-photog...

If you would like to search for a user in Illustration and Design or Traditional art please change leaderboard accordingly.

We hope this helps.

I think there should be a search function to find other photogrphers. I have friends who also submit but can't find them unless I happen upon one of their photos.

I know this may have been brought up before. I know you can search by photographer from your profile page, so it should be fairly easy to search by photographer on the Yearly Leaderboard or any of the leaderboards. That way you would not have to scroll for a week to see where you are at any particular time of the year.

Just something to make it easier to use.

Thanks
