Hello, my name is Penelope :)

I work for PurplePort managing The Purple Blog and our social media channels below (seen by thousands of people on and off PurplePort):

Share with me the beautiful images you find on PurplePort 

I am constantly browsing PurplePort, hunting for fabulous images to share with the world to show how talented our members are, but as this site is so big, I can't reach everywhere. I know there are so many amazing images I haven't seen yet!

So, I need the help of the wonderful creative community - I'd love to know what gorgeous gems you've found on your travels around PurplePort! Message me anytime on PurplePort when you spot an awesome image (or images) that would look great on The Purple Blog or our social channels. You can either copy links to the images or add the images to a collection (and copy the link to the collection) to send to me. 

I can't wait to hear from you! :)

How to get your images featured on our social media 

Add keyword tags to your images

We love sharing images from our Front Page Image (FPI) Collection, but we also use the Image Search feature to find fantastic images based on keywords. 

So we can easily find your fabulous, unique and stunning work, make sure to add correct and relevant keyword tags to your images :)

If you've never used the Image Search feature, check out How to Search for Images using Tags and The PurplePort Guide to Image Tags.

Disable members-only portfolios and images

We can't share images marked as Members only (or if your portfolio is marked as this). If you'd like your work featured on our social media, disable these options on your portfolio and images.

You can change this on your General Site Settings page by unticking the option Hide your profile from non-members.  

Allow your images to be collected

When browsing PurplePort looking for fabulous images to promote on our social media channels, we use image collections to organise our choices. If you prevent your images from being collected, we can't add them to our image collections, meaning they won't get shared on our social media channels.

To enable your images to be collected, go to your General Site Settings page and untick the option Prevent others from commenting on your images

Add your social media accounts to your PurplePort account

We do our absolute best to tag your social media accounts when we post your beautiful work on our social media. If you'd like us to tag your social media pages, please add them to your portfolio page on either:

  • The External Links on the right-hand side of your PurplePort account 
  • Your portfolio notes (make it REALLY clear, so we don't miss it!)

The simplest and easiest way to add all your social media accounts (and other links) to your PurplePort account is to use your Prpl.pro page (available exclusively to PurplePort members). Click here to check out my Prpl.pro page :)

You can add your Prpl.pro page to your External Links or portfolio notes. Go to Manage your account to edit your Prpl.pro page

How to get your images featured on The Purple Blog

Add keyword tags to your images 

One of the things we enjoy the most is looking for beautiful images for photo collection posts on The Purple Blog.

To find images, we use the Image Search tool by searching for images based on keyword tags. We use this tool ALL of the time to find fantastic images (both for social media and The Purple Blog).

If you want us to see your stunning images and feature them in posts on The Purple Blog, ensure you add relevant keyword tags to your images! 

Check out How to Search for Images using Tags and The PurplePort Guide to Image Tags if you've never used the Image Search feature.

Allow your images to be collected

We use image collections to organise beautiful images we find, and we also use this tool to build photo collection posts on The Purple Blog. If you prevent your images from being collected, we can't add them to our image collections, and they won't get featured in these blog posts.

To enable your images to be collected, go to your General Site Settings page and untick the option Prevent others from collecting your images

How to get published/featured on The Purple Blog
