What is the difference between a star rating and a love?
Photos in live contests are rated on a 3-star scale – the better it is, the more stars you can give it.
If you come across a photo whilst browsing through Photocrowd you can also love it by simply clicking the heart symbol. Loving a photo does not have any impact on how well a photo performs in a contest though - that's purely determined by the 3-star ratings.
Photos that you’ve loved using the heart symbol will be saved in your ‘Loved Photos’ folder within your profile.
