Viewing Images

Can I subscribe to a square and receive a notification when new photos are added to it?
Create a search that only find images in the given square, in reverse date submitted order using the search form link . This one is an example for SN5881: link . Copy the GeoRSS link at the bottom of the search results page. You can either read the feed in an RSS reader such as Google Reader link by adding the link as a new subscription, or you can use an RSS2email service such as Feedmyinbox link to receive updates via email.

There is also a link at the bottom of your profile page giving access to a special search showing images uploaded in the last 30 days in any square that you've submitted to.

Finally, you can subscribe to the grid square discussion of a square you're interested in by going to the grid square discussion page and ticking 'notify me of new posts'.
