    I'm a refugee from Flickr-too much red tape and protocol.
    Also a fairly recent convert from dslr mainstream-attracted by the ability to carry my gear in a pocket and the fun available via all those apps.
    Mobitog seemed to be a more laid-back site than many others, so let's see.
    I look forward to interacting and sharing-see you soon

    Welcome to MobiTog Kenny... so glad you joined us! :D You have come to the right place to learn about mobile photography and hone your skills. :thumbs: Take a look around, maybe join a challenge or two, and feel free to ask us any questions - our MobiCommunity are a super friendly and helpful bunch of mobile photography addicts enthusiasts!! :whistle:

    Here's some information that might prove useful as you find your way around:

    At the top right of the website you'll see a big question mark -->?<-- labeled Help - click on that any time and it will bring you to our detailed help section. You can also click this link: https://www.mobitog.com/index.php?help/

    Visit our "How Do I..." forum, where you'll find all sorts of tips and tricks to help you find your way around more easily: How Do I...

    The MobiTog Community is set out in four main areas or sections:

    Community
    Here we welcome everyone, post announcements and take in your suggestions and comments.

    Image Sharing
    Self-explanatory and broken down into sub-sections clearly named to make it easy to find a topic of your choice. It is here that you post your images.

    Mobitography Discussion
    For general conversations and discussions about all things mobile photography related.

    Members Area
    An exclusive MobiMembers-only section. Feel free to discuss things with other members - and find out about Top Secret stuff not for public consumption!

    Important note: Please remember that only images originated on a mobile device (iOS or Android) can be posted to this community. No pictures created on a DSLR or compact camera are allowed.

    Handy Tip: At the top of the site in the orange bar you'll see "New Posts", and clicking/tapping on it will take you to all the unread new posts that occurred since your last visit. Note: If there's just too many there to deal with, and you're really anal like me you can go up to the top and select "Mark Discussions Read" - and choose just a specific area to 'clear out', for example App Discussions, or choose all discussions which will clear everything and allow you to sort of 'start fresh'. That way the next time you go into New Posts, there will just be the most recent posts since you "erased" everything.

    Also when you hover over your username in the very top right, you have an option to choose "Ignore New Posts", and select any forums/discussions that you DON'T want to show up.

    We have lots of great challenges to help hone your skills and have loads of fun doing it, like Jilly's Black & White Challenge, and for the color-minded we have MobiColor, ZenJenny's Levels of Abstraction (LOA), a fun group challenge Elements of Surprise (EOS), Jilly's Edit This challenge, SinnerJohn's Two Week App Challenge (TWAC) is a great way to get to know the ins and outs of an app and have fun at the same time, and a super interesting and fun challenge Time Stamp run by FundyBrian where everyone around the globe posts up an image on the same day and time. Check them out in our Competitions & Challenges forum!!

    Lastly, if you have any questions on anything at all be sure to give us a shout out!

    Welcome. Yes, this place is more laidback. And more nutty. But also very tolerant - that is, if you don't commit the ultimate MobiTog sin by editing your pics on your computer before uploading them :sneaky:

    Hello Ken and welcome to Mobitog. I've already seen one of your fab images in the Mobi Colour Challenge. Well done for diving straight in on the challenges.:thumbs: You're in a great part of the UK - very photogenic - and I look forward to seeing some of your surroundings.
