An innovative new Australian photography app is helping travel enthusiasts turn their holiday snaps into cold hard cash … and so much more besides.
PicTrax, which is free to download on iOS and Android devices, is a digital platform that helps users document their travels by uploading images and information for either their own records, or to share with other users, creating a global map-based travel journal.
It’s not only about sharing what you’ve discovered, PicTrax users also gain access to a world of new potential destinations – as discovered by other users around the world. Every user can be a travel guide.
As PicTrax users are creating content of value to others, they are rewarded. On PicTrax, gaining likes indicates more than just rising popularity. When another user likes one of your pix, you get a real financial credit, not just a ‘warm fuzzy’ moment.

AUSTRALIAN TRAVEL PHOTOGRAPHY APP TURNS ANY SMARTPHONE INTO A GLOBALLY SHARED MAP-BASED TRAVEL JOURNAL
Most of us could find the Eiffel Tower on a map of the world. Ditto for Big Ben, Mt Fuji, the Great Barrier Reef or even the White House.
But what about those lower-profile spots that lie a little – or a lot – off the beaten track? The ones that mightn’t flood your social media feed but deserve a spot on your must-visit list anyway.
How do you go about tracking down these kinds of places, when your interest is high but information is scant?
Well one innovative Queensland entrepreneur has the answer – and she’s sharing it with the world.
Obelia McCormack has launched a free Android and iOS app called PicTrax that cleverly marries GPS technology with our culture of social media sharing to turn your smartphone into a globally shared map-pinned travel journal. The both assists users to share travel photos and experience, as well as gain travel inspiration.
