The popular TechSpot user gallery

with one comment

There are a number of semi-hidden features on TechSpot that unfortunately go unnoticed by many. It’s likely that frequent readers of our news coverage or reviews have yet to visit the forums and see how thousands of users stop by every week helping and sharing their knowledge with fellow TS members.

Other two (even more buried) sections are our Windows Startup Radar which gives info on startup programs and the User Picture Gallery, otherwise known as “the gallery.”

Just recently the developers of web software Photopost (which we use to run the gallery) announced a new milestone update and website. This piece of software is particularly popular as it integrates well with the even more popular vBulletin forum that thousands of websites use and have relied on for years now.

According to the new Photopost website, our gallery happens to be one of the most popular on the net (using Photopost) with 2,288 photos uploaded, over eight thousand comments, and 29 million picture views. Not bad at all considering we are not a general purpose site but have restricted uploads to technology and PC related pictures for the most part.

Way to go TS members! If you have not checked the gallery yet, you may want to do so now and upload anything cool you have to share, too. BTW, I recently upgraded the gallery to accept pictures up to 2560×1600 pixels.
