Okay, as far as I could see no one has been wicked enough to create a least favourite images collection....but I did come across this great description for a collection: "sunsets for the party ohh yeah i dont know what to write but i need to write a lot of crap here to make this all right yea yeah yeah come on now get green".
LOL - Brad, I'm going to look through the collections now - it's so wacky someone is bound to have made a collection like that....
Aijadream - have a look at some existing collections (such as Funky Funk, which I manage) just to get a feel for them - pick a subject that reflects some of your images so you can add them to your collection or just pick a subject you find interesting (I have a collection without any of my images: Photographers and Cameras) and go for it. If you want the collection to be public (so we can all see it) you need to include images from at least five contributors (including you).
You are free to add anyone's photos to your own collections without contacting them - if anything it adds exposure to their images. Unless you are planning on making a 'Least favorite images' collection or something :)
You can always start your own collection...pick a subject, search for some images (including your own), add them to a lightbox, convert the lightbox to a collection - all can be done from your management area.
I usually go to one one of their pictures in their collection (make sure to select the right collection owner of course) and send a comment with my picture reference number. It's entirely up to them to add the shot to their collection or not so I just ask them to check it out and add it if they think it's suitable.
