You know how an image says more than a thousand words? With your Everplaces collection this is more true than ever.
Next week, Everplaces 2.0 will be released with loads of social features, which is likely to bring more people over to look at your collection. Here’s how you can make it more attractive, more communicative and say more about who you are as a person.
1) Use images for all your places
This makes a huge difference. You can quickly add any photo via our web interface, or from your phone (photo roll or take a new) if you’re on your mobile. You can also find a suitable image on the web and save to the place.
Done that? Now refresh and see how beautiful your page looks!

2) Make your images look like a pro’s
Running your photos through a filter can give them a glow and an artistic look. It’s easy to do this in Instagram with the photos from your phone. Save a new copy with a filter and save this version on Everplaces.
If you don’t like Instagram, there are several mobile alternatives. These services can all make your photos look vintage, arty or show the colors and contrast more clearly. If you prefer to do your editing on your computer, here’s a list of photo filter and editing services on web. They are a quick way to spruce up the look of your photos.

2) Make sure your profile shows who you are
People will come to your page to see who you are and what kind of places you’re into. Give them a nice welcome by detailing what you like, so people with similar interests know they should follow you for tips. And a picture of course, one that says something about you. You can also link to your blog if you have one.

3) Make interesting collections
You can organize your places into collections if that makes sense. Personally I love wine bars, so I’ve made a list of wine bars in my own city, so I can keep track of new ones and quickly suggest a good place on nights when me and my friends are choosing where to go.
You can also do a collection with research for a particular vacation, like ‘Lake District’ or interest such as ‘great modern architecture’.
