Description

Your photography is the point. Glass is a new photo sharing app and community for photographers. We’re private and subscription-based — which means no ads, data tracking, public counts, or engagement algorithms.

So what do we have? A chronological feed, high quality images with color profile support, EXIF data, and all the social features you’d expect. To make sure Glass is a safe space for you, we built blocking and reporting as day one features and have a code of conduct all Glass members must follow.

Whether you're a professional photographer or just starting out, Glass is the best place to share & grow your photography. Glass is $5/month or $50/year. Our launch pricing is $30/year.

Editors’ Choice

We love that Glass elevates your photos with full-screen layouts and minimal compression. In the absence of likes and follower counts, there’s no need to focus on engagement—just share your favorite shots. And with an engaged community of amateur and professional shutterbugs alike, the app makes it easy to share your love of photography.

Solid First Effort

I think this is a solid first step. The issue is I’m not sure the founders have established an identity for Glass outside of it not being Instagram. That’s reflected in the incredibly small feature set and some of the design decisions that feel a little aimless. The discovery tab is awful, full stop. Avatar icons are too big, photos are too small, sideways scrolling on all these tiny photos with no way to preview isn’t fun. Zooming into landscape images by default is also strange. Launching this app without a way to view a user’s full collection of images at a glance feels like a mistake. How did it launch without a way to edit captions? The app was in private beta for a minute and it makes me curious what it was like then.

There’s a lot of workshopping happening in their support pages and I worry they’re going to design this by committee and turn it into a hodgepodge of conflicting ideas. The work I’m referring to that needs to be done isn’t expensive. It doesn’t cost you anything to establish a set of concrete desires for your product. Does Glass want to foster a photography community and get people conversing with one another or does it want to be a portfolio site with some engagement functionality?

I’ve already subscribed for the year, I’m rooting for you all to turn this into something. Figure out what you want to be and pls god get more women on your platform.

Finally!

Over the years photographers have tried to find a place to share work together. There was Flickr (which turned into a train photography community instead), 500px (mysteriously purchased by Chinese Corp), and Instagram (devolved into memes, selfies, and influencers after Facebook purchase). For the past few years, we had nothing. Glass proposed a simple idea - photography community paid by subscriptions. It’s brilliant. I’m happy to pay to be a part of photography as art community and think this is the start of something good. The first pass at the app isn’t perfect but I know reception has been great and Glass will work out the kinks and eventually scale to other platforms. Glass team - I wish you all success and big paydays ahead, thanks for hard work to bring this idea to life.
