What is Aminus3?

Aminus3 is a photography community where people from around the world connect each day by sharing their daily life experiences and images. Aminus3 began as a photoblog and the core concept of posting a single image per day remains.

For more information, please see the About Page.

What are the rules for using Aminus3?

The use of Aminus3 is subject to our terms & conditions. We have also outlined our recommended best practices in our Community Guidelines.

Beyond that, we do politely ask that you respect all members of the Aminus3 community. Do not post comments or images with the intent to offend others.

Creative expression in all its forms is strongly encouraged on Aminus3. With that said, we do reserve the right to remove a comment, an image or an account if deemed to be offensive in nature.

Will I have to pay to use Aminus3?

Currently, the basic Aminus3 service is available at no cost.

We encourage users to get the most out of Aminus3 through the premium A+ Membership.

Please be aware that in 2nd half of 2018, the scope of the basic membership will change. More details will be communicated at the time of a formal announcement.

What time does my site change to the next day?

All photoblogs change to the next day at Midnight, Eastern Standard Time (EST, GMT – 5). Major cities that fall into this time zone include Toronto, New York, Havana, Bogotá and Lima.

We understand that members live in other parts of the world and may prefer the date to change at midnight in their local time however a single turnover time was required so that all domains switched at the same time and no one domain had an advantage over any other. Since both creators of Aminus3 were originally from the EST time zone, it seemed as good a choice as any.

How do I create links or bold text using the formatting buttons?

Double click or click and drag a word to highlight it and then click on the b or i button to add bold or italic formatting.

To create a link,
Highlight the link text and click the url button. This will add tags around the highlighted text. Paste the link into the tag after the url=

For example
url=http://www.mylink.com

What are the known issues with Internet Explorer?

Aminus3 works best on modern web browsers.

Note that older browser versions as well as Microsoft Internet Explorer browser may not correctly display the Aminus3 website.

We recommend:
Firefox
Apple Safari
Google Chrome
Opera

How can people subscribe to my blog by email or auto-post to social networks?

All Aminus3 blogs have something called an "RSS Feed'
this gets updated when a new photo posts on your site (each morning for example)

It is possible to use a 3rd party service to read your RSS feed and email people when your blog is updated.

Instruct your friends to go to this site:
https://ifttt.com/applets/147561p-rss-feed-to-email

For the "Feed", paste the following link:
http://pascalounet.aminus3.com/feed/images/

and then enter their email address and they will get an email for every new post.

You can also use your RSS Feed to automatically post to social sites like Facebook and Twitter.

The following are some 3rd party services which read an RSS feed and post it to social networks:

How do I upload photos from an iOS device like iPad or iPhone?

As of iOS version 9 or higher, you should be able to upload images from your photo library or camera directly to Aminus3 on the image upload page.

What is the Photo Resonance portal?

The Aminus3 Photo Resonance portal is a special gallery of images, organized around themes. It is a place for the world to experience all of the amazing images, moments, and stories which are shared on the Aminus3 community each day. Each Photo Resonance post features three galleries which embody a common theme around timely and inspired imagery.

How do I participate in Photo Resonance?

All images posted to Aminus3 are eligible to be featured in a Photo Resonance theme. Themes and images are selected by the Aminus3 staff. We will occasionally put out a request for a certain type of image and will notify the community on how they can participate.

How can I opt-out of Photo Resonance?

If you do not wish to be featured in a Remix or Photo Resonance theme, please Contact Aminus3 and let us know so we can remove you from the list of eligible photographers.

Opting out of the Photo Resonance portal will also prevent other users from Remixing your images in their own Remix collections.
