Lovely website. I started using ipernity after becoming disillusioned with another website I had been using. I no longer wanted to just stream over tons of images. I was looking of interaction and people with interest in the photography as a whole. Ipernity is a place where one can see lots of photos, but has the community of people really taking time to see your photos and many times communicate with you about it.
After struggling, the site was bought by the users and is now a non-profit. It truly is a community run website. That is rare these days, and worth supporting. People are friendly and the software is easy to use. This is a good place to expect people to comment on your photographs. Have a question? Many users will help out. Lots of different interests that are easy to find with the groups and albums features.
It's very easy to upload photos (they always keep your full image that you can also download at anytime), and to transfer photos from other websites. Many people really enjoy the PIP feature (I don't happen to use it).
Oh! And it has a great translation feature so it's easy to communicate with photographers from many different countries!!
Some who are looking for large exposure for their works may find that the community is on the small side, but it is an international community and has lot of participation. If one joins some groups, one's followers builds easily.
The other thing is that this is a site that one needs to pay to join after an initial free check it out period. This is due to the site being user owned. When you pay the fee, you are part of the ownership. It also isn't expensive, just not free. Well worth checking out!
In summary, I would recommend Ipernity to a friend.
