  • How to save images and videos

    Wookmark is all about saving images and videos. Any image or video you save will be accessible under your profile page. You can save images and videos that are already on Wookmark, or you can save new ones to Wookmark from other websites.

    To save on Wookmark, simply click the "+" icon next to the image or video. It will be saved to your account, and you'll have the option to add it to groups if you want to.

    To save from other websites, install the Wookmark button in your browser. Find out how in the how-to guide.

  • Liking vs. Saving

    Liking is a good way show to your appreciation. Saving, on the other hand, is when you want to keep something in your profile, and/or add it one of your groups. So you might like an image of a cool sneaker, but you don't really care about referencing it later, so you decide to click "Like". As with other features, feel free to use them as it suits you.

  • How to embed Wookmark images on your website

    You can either embed a single image from Wookmark, a whole group, or your whole profile.

    To embed a single image, got to an image page, click "Share" and then "Embed". You should see an embed code that you can copy into your website or blog.

    To embed a group or your profile, visit the group or profile page. In the box in the top left corner, you should see a small "Embed" link. Click it for detailed instructions.

  • Problems saving images or videos

    Sometimes images or videos from other websites can't be saved for a variety of reasons. Sometimes, website owners do not allow us to save them, sometimes there are complex technical reasons. If you encounter issues, please let us know. We are continuously monitoring new content saved to Wookmark, and also continuously improving our code to make it as powerful as possible.

  • Inappropriate content

    All content on Wookmark is added by our users, so it is natural that there is a very diverse mix. While we try to restrict as little as possible what is added to allow you to express yourself, we do draw a line at pornography, extreme grossness, violence, etc. We rely on you to help moderate the site, and also moderate ourselves. Here's how it works.

    Not safe for work (NSFW)
    Some people use Wookmark at work or other public settings. As a courtesy, images that could be problematic in these situations should be marked NSFW. You can do this by adding a note that contains the term "NSFW". Please also add an explanation, such as "NSFW due to nudity". This is great for images such as a beautiful fashion shot that reveals a slight bit too much skin (explicit sexual content is still not acceptable and should be flagged, see below).

    Flagging
    Images that need to be reviewed by us should be flagged. Several options are available, such as explicit content, copyright infringement, etc. The "Flag image" option can be found alongside the options on image pages and in the lightbox. Use this option for images that simply should not be on Wookmark at all.

    Blacklisting
    This is something we do internally. Websites or users that continuously post inappropriate content or spam will be blacklisted, which hides them from most pages on Wookmark. We will then reach out to the blacklisted user to discuss our content policy. This is an extreme measure and we sincerely hope we don't have to blacklist much.

    Deleting accounts
    Our last measure for spam accounts and people who don't comply with our guidelines even after we talk to them.

Groups

  • What are groups?

    Groups are great for organizing your images, for personal interests, hobbies and work projects. Think of a group as an empty canvas that's for you to fill with whatever sparks your interest. You can keep groups public or private, and invite others to contribute if you'd like.

  • How to create groups

    You can create groups from several places. You can always create a group from the menu in the top-right corner of the navigation bar. This gives you the full group options available.

    There's also an option in the Groups dropdown in the top navigation (look for the little + in a circle). Whenever you save an image, you'll see the same icon in your list of groups. These two options will show a small popup to quickly create a group.

Following

  • What is "Following"?

    Your "Following" page shows images only from the users, groups and sources you follow. It's a great way to use Wookmark, since you can tune in to what you care about, and ignore the rest. To get started, go to the page of a user, group, or source, and click the "Follow" button in the top left. You can always unfollow others, so don't hesitate to play with "Following" until you find your sweet spot.

  • Tags

    Wookmark automatically analyzes images and tags them. This is great for finding images for different areas of interest. Overall, this works great, but please forgive if some tags are more funny than useful, our computers are still learning. On a more positive note, maybe this slight randomness is another way to find more inspiration in surprising and unexpected ways. What do you think?

  • How to use your Wookmark images as a screen saver (Mac OS X)

    The OS X screen saver supports RSS, which let's you pull in images from any website that also supports RSS. This makes it easy to have a screen saver that always shows the latest images you have saved on Wookmark.

    You can access your RSS feed via your profile page. At the bottom of the info box (in the top left of the page), find the RSS icon (looks like a series of arcs). Right-click the icon and select "Copy link". Find the "Screen saver" settings in your "System Preferences" panel on your Mac. Click the small plus icon, and in the resulting drop-down, select "RSS feed". Paste in the feed, click OK, and you should see your Wookmark images show up in the preview.
