This is what Ken Rockwell, photo guru and one of the biggest photo bloggers in the world writes about our new photo book Passion:
"Wow! This book is an inspiration. It's nothing but great photos, and I mean great photos. There are no technical pages or pages with bad poetry, just page after page of brilliant images expertly edited.
If you want to show your artist friends just how good the medium of photography can be, or want some inspiration to what a great photograph looks like, this latest book is a knockout."
You can order Passion here. Order today to make sure to get it before Christmas!
It's now possible to see the result from the member curation in the info panel in the toolbar below each photo, under "Popularity". Please notice that this is the result from how the members voted and a high score does not mean that the photo will be published and a low score doesn't mean that it will necessarily be rejected, it's just an indication of how popular it is. Unlike some other photo sites, 1x is not a popularity contest. However, the curators always take the score into consideration when making their decision.
From now on we will try to make sure that every photo uploaded to 1x gets a score so all photographers get feedback on every image they upload. This means that we need more help to vote on images in "Photos" > "Curate". Your votes are important!

We have been working very hard the last week to boost the performance of 1x a lot, hopefully you have noticed that the site is much more snappy and speedy than it used to be. Some features might temporary be down while we are optimizing them and increasing the performance. Next week we will introduce even more major performance gains.
