"He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he refreshes my soul. He guides me along the right paths for his name’s sake." Psalm 23
A "board" is their word for "category." You can create whatever boards fit your interests.
You can follow all of your friends boards or just selected boards which are your same interest. You can unfollow selected boards if you are getting images in your stream in which you have no interest. (choosing individual boards/categories to follow is an option vi.sualize.us does not have--at vi.sualize.us, if you follow someone, you receive all of their images)
You can also "like" an image, but I don't really see this use for this because if I like it, I'm just going to add it to one of my boards.
Commenting on images is also available.
As with the other sites, you can add images from any website page by installing the link in your browser toolbar.
There is also an iPhone ap coming soon.
I love image collection sites because they allow me collect digital scrapbooking layouts that inspire me from everywhere into one spot. So instead of cruising galleries when I need inspiration to jump start a layout when my mojo is gone, I head to my collection.
In addition, each image saved is linked back to the original website where you can go to find tutorials, credits, or other helpful information.
I remember when vi-sualiz.us first came out there was much concern about copyright. I would imagine that if there was a copyright problem, the makers of these popular website would have already investigated for their own risk. Basically, they are only organizing small thumbnails from the original photos and the originals are retained on the originating website. By linking back to the original website, it gives credit to the owner of the image. Of course, copyright is a complicated issue in which only attorneys should be consulted to interpret.
