That perfect shot – where the lighting is just right, playing around the detail the way you want it. The point of focus and frame couldn’t be better. The subtle shadows and half-tones.
Capturing a moment at its perfect glory.
Everyone who truly loves the camera has experienced this amazing thrill at least once in their lifetime. The excitement of being one with the lens, with the environment, with the object. Being able to capture the image equal or better to the one in your imagination. It calls for a celebration!
Here, at Ellp, we get that! Combine that with the fact that we’ve always seen Ellp as your personal assistant. And wouldn’t it be your assistant’s task to make sure you share your best work with the world and get credit for it? Wouldn’t he or she be there for you to make it as simple and easy as possible? Making sure that you will be featured globally? This is why we decided to open one of our most popular cards to our users! How?
The card called ‘When my favorite site posts a picture, set it as desktop background’ will now feature Ellp Gallery as well! All users who have this card active may choose to see your picture instead of the one of National Geographic or NASA. Isn’t that exciting?
So, what to do to get into the Ellp Gallery, you must be asking right now. It’s easier than you think!
