Who am I?
Hello everyone! My name is Vunnie and I'm a designer and creative technologies student. I'm also an amateur photographer and a model for artists. I have a 500px account and one of my pictures was chosen to be "editors's choice". Now that I form part of the MIUI Photography Team I'll try my best to provide you beautiful pictures and useful tips!






Introduction
Everyone wants to share their pictures with the world. We make sure to take the best shots and choose the perfect one but when we have to post it we don't know where. Social media has a worldwide impact but which one of those millions of social networks is the best one to post our pictures? I've personally tried a lot of them and I'll proceed to list the top 5 best ones in my opinion. Enjoy!




5. TUMBLR
A lot of people know this social media. We can post our pictures and write tags to make them more popular. This is the appearance of the main menu.

Tumblr's main screen


We have the control panel where we can select what we want to post (text, photo, quote, link, chat, audio, video). recommendations of blogs based on what we like. posts of people we follow and a change of tumblr's policy. The last one is the reason why Tumblr is not on the top 3. With this change of policy Tumblr bans adult content. But Tumblr's algorythms aren't working well so it's banning a lot of content that has nothing to do with adult content. Therefore if you post something Tumblr might ban it even if it isn't adult content. They will end up fixing it but it isn't working very well right now.

We can change our profile page in Tumblr very easily and we have a lot of free ways to do it. We just have to go to our profile and click modify appearance. We press edit theme and it will redirect us to this page:


Tumblr's edit your blog screen

We can edit our profile picture, text font, color, we can use a gif as a banner... There are infinite ways of editing our blog, and that's something almost unique of Tumblr. If we know HTML coding we can edit our blog with HTML. Tumblr is a very well known web so we have plenty of tutorials regarding HTML related to Tumblr.

Posting is also very easy. We have to go to the main menu and select one of the options:


Tumblr's posting menu


  • Text
  • Photo
  • Quote
  • Link
  • Chat
  • Audio
  • Video


If we select to post a picture it will give us two options: use a link or upload from our computer or phone.

4. WE HEART IT
This is a social media similar to Pinterest. Is less well known but it is fantastic. This is the main screen:

We Heart It's main screen


We have the main screen button where we can see posts of people we follow, the discovery button where we can see posts we like of people we don't know, the articles button where we can read posts about fashion, photography..., the channels button where we can discover topics and the new post button. This social media works like Tumblr. We press the new post button and we select what we want to post (in this case a picture, an article or a link). We have to use tags to make our pictures well known. You can also save pictures of other users by liking them or downloading them. You can also create folders like in Pinterest to keep them.






3. PICSART
Picsart is a very well known free app every photographer has in their phones. It's used to edit pictures with a bunch of free options and optional premium ones. You have stickers, filters... But it's also a social media.

PicsArt's main screen

It's used to edit pictures so it is a social media for photographers or people who love drawing on their phones. Posting is very simple. You just have to select a picture, press the arrow to continue and then write the tags and share it. You can follow people you like and you have a selection of free pictures you can use, as well as contests and interesting tutorials.






2. PINTEREST
Pinterest is a worldwide known social media. It works like We Heart It. You can have folders, follow topics and people you like, share your pictures with tags... The number of users is what makes this social media be the second in my Top 5. It is also used by teachers to share their work or examples with their students so a lot of young people are using it nowadays. You can use your Google account to log in.

Pinterest's main screen


A lot of professionals (designers, photographers...) use this web, so you can make yourself be well known to professionals. Posting is simple. You just have to go to your profile, click the + button and select create a pin. That way you will be able to post a picture. People can save pins so it's an easy way to spread a picture worldwide because everytime a person saves a pin it will be notified to their followers and people who follow a topic related to your picture.






1. 500PX
This is by far the best social network for photographers. Only professional photographers are part of this community.

500px's profile screen

There are contests which prizes are a lot of money, real professionals... You can follow people and topics and posting a picture follows the same process as posting in other social media. By logging in you have a free premium period (for the first time) and when it ends you can post seven pictures every seven days (that way they make sure you only post the best). You can use your Google account to log in.

Every picture has a different badge depending on its popularity. A special badge is editor's choice, as it is the most difficult one to achieve. A professional photographer from the 500px team choose an image that has been the best in its category no matter how pupular it is and gives you the editor's choice badge, which makes it very popular and it makes it appear in the 500px official profile with the rest of editor's choices.

My picture with the badge editor's choice. Picture taken with a Canon 1300D. Model: my sister.


It's a fast way to make friends in the photography community, get feedback from professional photographers, ask for help or search inspiration.
