Use categories responsibly

As a platform dedicated to showcasing street photography, PortraitMode offers a variety of tools to help users discover and share photos. One such tool is the ability to assign categories to photos, making it easier for users to search for specific types of content.

However, with great power comes great responsibility.

The misuse of categories can lead to confusion and frustration for other users, ultimately resulting in a less enjoyable experience for everyone. That’s why it’s important to use categories responsibly on PortraitMode.

When submitting a photo to PortraitMode, it’s important to choose the appropriate category or categories for your photo. This helps to ensure that other users can easily find and enjoy your content. You can select up to 10 categories per photo, so take some time to think about which ones best represent your image.

If you’re not sure which category to choose, it’s better to skip the category selection process altogether. Misusing categories by assigning them to photos that don’t belong can result in your photo being removed from the platform.

To ensure that PortraitMode remains a valuable resource for street photography, it’s important to use categories responsibly and accurately. This means avoiding the temptation to assign your photo to as many categories as possible in an attempt to increase its visibility. Instead, focus on choosing the categories that best represent your image.

In conclusion, categories are a useful tool for organizing and searching for photos on PortraitMode. By using them responsibly, you can help make the platform a better place for everyone. So the next time you submit a photo, take a few extra moments to carefully consider which categories are the most appropriate. Your fellow users will thank you for it.

To remove or reassign categories from existing photos, simply right-click on the photo from your profile to access the context menu. Alternatively, this can also be done through the mobile app by long-pressing the photo in question.
