Hello Project Weather members,

If you are wondering why your accepted photos are not showing up in the app, please visit the discussion forum for an important tutorial that describes how to publicly geo-tag your photos. If you can't see your photos in the app, it's likely because your geo-tags are set to private.

Thanks!
The Project Weather Team

3. When you've found the location, drag the photo(s) from Findr and drop it on the map. Make sure to zoom in on the map enough to make the geotag specific. Keep in mind for your image to be seen in the app, it must be tagged in a city or town.
