New! Categorize your photos

Hey everyone,

I’m happy to let you know that we have just released a new update to the PortraitMode platform.


🏷️ Meet categories

With this release we bring more structure to the PortraitMode platform & increase the discoverability for your photos.

Unlike tags, categories are predefined. This is a good starting point to bring more variety to the platform & allows you to find photos related to specific topics, such as Black & White, Landscape, Film Photography, etc. All in the context of street-photography.

To categorize your photos, simply select up to 5 categories 10 categories when publishing a photo from your personal profile. To categorize existing photos, simply right-click the photo of your choice and assign related categories. If you have been working with albums before, you know exactly what to do.

Categories can be discovered through the search right from the explore page and are displayed below each photo.

While we are starting with an extensive list of categories, your photo might belong in a category that doesn’t exist yet. If that’s the case, you can reach out and suggest a category here.


✨ What’s next?

We plan to extend categories with camera models and display them in a similar fashion. This will further increase discoverability and makes PortraitMode a more structured resource for street-photography in general.

Tags are not currently planned as they can get out of hand pretty quickly. As I mentioned above, if you have any categories to suggest, please reach out.

We will continue to focus on the app moving forward and hope to have it ready by the end of the year. As always, if you have any feedback, please let me know down in the comments below.
