This started by having a popular page on Facebook where I ran a page where people contributed photos as well as my self, which is located here: As the page grew, it made sense to start a forum. The blog, as it was only contributed by myself was hard to keep running. Irish.Gallery exists to host discussion of photography and share pictures, so long as it is not sexually explicit. I noticed along with a lot of people on Facebook that it compresses the pictures making them grainy. It is OK for mobile devices but very noticeable on a desktop/laptop display. The forum has been designed to work with your workflow. If you use instagram you can share your pictures here, if you use facebook you can share them, if you use imgur that works too. Simply put the link in the post to the content and it should automatically figure it out.
