Welcome to the ScrapWalls blog! Here you will be able to find information about upcoming features, give us feedback, and get all of the latest ScrapWalls news. To get started, this post gives some background about Scrapwalls.
What is it?
ScrapWalls lets you build and share photo collages online. You can upload pictures, arrange them with our easy drag-and-drop edit interface, and then publish your wall for others to see. Unlike traditional photo sharing, creating a ScrapWall is fun, you should try it out!
Not a photographer? At ScrapWalls.com, you can peruse collages that have been created by others on the MetaWall. When someone makes a public ScrapWall, we look it over, and, if we like what we see (sorry spammers), add it to the MetaWall. The MetaWall is a large and ever-growing collage of collages. On it, you can quickly browse through thousands of images with our zooming interface, which makes it easy to quickly glance at a collage and view only the best photos.
