what is a thumbed photo?
In the top right-hand corner of the photo page is a 'thumbs-up' symbol. By hovering over this one can select either 'I like this image!' or 'I like this description!' - or both.
When this happens to one of your photos it is reported on the section of your profile 'Use of my photos around the site'.

Viewing Images

I've seen little thumbs-up symbols around the site, what are they?
Simply click them if you like the image and/or description (separate entries in the thumb pop-up for each).

We don't know what use we will make of the data, but note that there are number of things we won't do. We won't disclose who is voting (all anonymous), we won't be using it to produce leaderboards, and we won't be disclosing which images that have few/no votes. The general idea is to simply find great content worth showcasing.
