What is VisualizeUs?
VisualizeUs is a social bookmarking website for visual contents — VisualizeUs (read visualize us) allows you to remember your favorite images from all over the web, and share them with everyone.
Sometimes, you are looking through pictures and one of them catches your eye. You know you want to remember it and been able to look at it again in the future, but it's not that easy: downloading to your hard disk is as useless as bookmarking the website in the usual way.
This is where VisualizeUs changes the rules. Within two clicks, you can quote the image reference in your account, and easily look at it whenever you want to, just as your new favorite picture deserves. All without thinking about what computer you stored it in: always online, always available.

What is the "social bookmarking" stuff?
The power of VisualizeUs resides in the possibility to share your bookmarks with the rest of the world. That's where the key of "social bookmarking" is. And at the same time it's the explanation of the term: bookmarks that you don't keep privately in your browser, but are shared with everyone.
Just imagine for a second thousands of images, each of them saved for a good reason (that's why we called 'em favorites!). That's a lot of interesting stuff together, isn't it? You can find someone with your same interests and discover new things you're going to love for sure. Or even more, you can develop new interests you weren't aware of, and find inspiration just exploring!
Of course, you can choose not to share your favorite images, or share only with your friends. At the end, we're talking about your favorite images, so it's up to you!
How can you organize your bookmarks?
Obviously, you need some way to organize your favorite pictures. Otherwise when your collection becomes bigger, finding that lovely picture of the foggy park you saved a year ago, might be an impossible task.
That's what tags are for. A tag is a keyword or term (e.g. "landscape" or "square format") that you assign to a picture to describe it. There's no limit to how many tags you can use, and you can easily rename or delete them later. It's a flexible way to organize your information.
Here's an example of what we are talking about:
- Tag Test Picture
- Just for didactical purposes
Image tagged with:
- urban nature
- wide format
