      1. You are going to put out a book one day, right? I want to buy a copy if so <3 Posted one month ago
        1. Unlikely, but I appreciate the compliment :) Perhaps a collage, and may print some at home for on the wall.

          But I do have something else in mind. One common use case I have, and I know you have it too (saw your "treasure chest" list), is to showcase highlights. My "best work".

          It could be for personal reasons (personal pride, important memories) but I also see a need for it when I deal with friends or when meeting new people. Or lets just call them "normies".

          I don't actively broadcast my hobby in the real word, as I'm fully aware it's rather niche. But still, the topic comes up every now and then. In such cases, I would want to be able to just share a simple link that tells "my story". Best photos, the categories of wildlife I engage with most, or even locations traveled to. A portfolio summary, something like that.

          Sending them to our profile isn't great, especially if it contains thousands of photos. A "treasure" list is a good work-around for now, but longer term I definitely want to create something more advanced.

          Sorry for going off-topic!
