Add Your #PhotoSpot to Google+

We've recently begun a new hash tag theme on Google+ called #PhotoSpot! If you'd like to jump in the fun, post a photo that shows off a location you've found that you thought was terrific for photography, add the #PhotoSpot hash tag to your posted photo, and optionally add the GPS coordinates to the post. If you don't have or know the exact GPS coordinates, you can instead describe where the photo was taken as best you can. Also, while you're at it, don't forget to mention +ShutterGuides and the +ShutterGuides team: +Toby Harriman, +Wyatt Walter, and +Tim Gupta.

We'll look forward to seeing your best #PhotoSpot on Google+! And while you're at it, don't forget to follow us to keep up with all the latest: +ShutterGuides

New Features: Large Photos and Right Click Protection

We are continually improving, and while it's a somewhat minor change, we think you'll like to know that now when you click on a photo spot, you have the option of viewing a large version of the photo that represents that spot, which should help make it easier to decide whether you'd like to go visit that spot.

Large photo of Palace of Fine Arts, a spot from photographer Tim Gupta's photo guide "Left My Heart in San Francisco".

And with that, we also added some "right click" and drag-and-drop copy protection to these large images to make it harder for someone to download your copyrighted work from ShutterGuides. As always, keep sending your feedback, and if you have some great photo spots to share, why not create a photo guide?
