Each image uploaded, requires the user to acknowledge the map pin is correct, and allows the user to reposition the pinned image if the location is missing or incorrect.

PicTrax is a new platform and has many regions that require destination pinning. This platform is particularly ripe for influencers to make a name for themselves, tagging remote and lesser-travelled destinations you’ve discovered – the more unique and difficult to find, the better.

Absolutely. This is what private map pinning is for. We’ve heard of people using PicTrax to help locate their car on a long, featureless beach, through to mapping address less sites for billboard installation, sign and infrastructure maintenance and more. Use PicTrax to pin possible wedding and reception venues for assessment, or use the map pinning aspect to plot evidence in an investigation. 

Many people opt to have location services turned off on their devices. You can still upload destination images that don’t have GPS metadata. Simply select the image from your mobile phone gallery, search for the destination or nearby landmark, and navigate to the place you were standing when you took the photograph.

Credit for Liked Images: We appreciate and support travellers who share their experiences. When other users like your images by tapping the heart icon in Detail View, you earn redeemable credits. The monetary value of these credits, denominated in AUD, can vary over time.

Redeem Credits: Once you accumulate AUD$20.00 or more in credits, you can redeem them for cash. You can cash in your credits, up to AUD$70 per transfer, through the website here.

Exposure for Professionals: If you’re a professional or semi-professional photographer, tour operator, or represent a regional destination, you can include your URL in the details of your uploaded images. This allows you to generate business and increase your exposure among our user base.

Sell access to your private collections: As a travel influencer, landscape photographer, event organiser or other location collector, you can sell access to your exclusive, private collections.

By providing these incentives, PicTrax encourages engagement, supports content creators, and fosters a community where travelers can showcase their experiences while potentially benefiting financially.

It depends on your usage. If you never plan to share a private collection of mapped destinations, you could happily use the free version ongoing. If you’d like to share or receive private collections of mapped images, the very inexpensive yearly subscription may be best for you.

No. The free version platform may present advertising from time to time, however the same advertising will be presented to all users – we do not use your data to present personalised  advertising as you are not identified as a specific individual.

PicTrax requires the internet to present content. As content is changing frequently, internet or data is required to present fresh content.

PicTrax is not designed for images of commonly found items like a McDonald’s burger or a barista-made coffee. However, if there’s something exceptional or distinctive about a place, it’s perfect for sharing on PicTrax. For instance, consider the extraordinary New Zealand lake-to-plate salmon fishing restaurant called ‘Hook,’ where you can catch a salmon in the breathtaking surroundings and have it expertly prepared and served by professional chefs. Since this experience is genuinely unique and tied to a specific location, PicTrax is the ideal platform to showcase it.

Let fellow travellers find and explore your remarkable travel discoveries and recommendations, ranging from extraordinary restaurants, vibrant nightclubs, captivating statues, intriguing museums, thrilling theme parks, well-known tourist destinations, picturesque public parks, breathtaking views, peculiarly shaped trees, and other remarkable sights and experiences that are specific to certain locations.
