Online dating just got a whole lot easier with Picerty.com
When it comes to online dating it’s well known that people look at images first and words second. Not only that, writing a dating profile can be a tricky task, and that’s where Picerty.com comes in.
Picerty is an image composing application which allows the user to crop and arrange a group of images into one single exciting composition with built in retro filters that give a soft cross-processed look. Online daters can use it as a kind of mood board with which to define themselves. A whole story can be told at a glance.
Daters can show photos of themselves participating in skiing, rock-climbing, painting, gardening, cooking or whatever. They can upload photographs of favourite books, stills from films, even their pets.
Picerty.com owner Paul Benbow said: "It’s a great way of letting people know who you are instantly. Dating profiles are tricky to write and exciting photos attract a whole lot more attention in an instant."
He said: "Another lovely feature of this tool is the facility to attach a quiz to your Picerty. If you’re using the image for dating purposes this works really well - a potential partner takes your quiz and can have fun finding out how well they really know you."
Picerty has many more applications besides dating. Business is about relationships and with so much business done online, it can be difficult to really get to know potential customers or suppliers. Users of LinkedIn, and freelancers bidding for work online can increase their chances of winning projects by using a Picerty to communicate who they are as person. Picerty can also help to build contacts and define a business or freelancer when uploaded and used as an Avatar.
Many users see it as a creative tool purely for self-expression. "One user has uploaded pictures of unusually decorative buses while another has used it to display her hand-made goods. It’s a great tool for those who enjoying collecting objects such as teapots, buttons or dolls to display them in a beautiful, organised grid they can then share with friends via social media or email. Really, it’s there to be used and you can be as inventive as you like."
It’s free to produce and download a screen resolution image on Picerty.com suitable for sharing and using online. Downloading at high resolution or ordering a Picerty as a poster, giant wall sticker or a set of greetings cards is possible for a fee.
