There are a number of ways of viewing photographs of minerals on the website. You can view the gallery of all the photographs of a particular mineral from the mineral page. All the photographs from a particular locality can be viewed from it's locality page. A gallery of photographs of a particular user are available from the user listing or by clicking on the photographers name on the display page of a photograph. You can also display all of the photographs of the day that have appeared on the front page of the site. Some galleries also allow you to view a "3d wall of images".

We limit the number of photographs displayed to 10 for a mineral/locality combination in locality or mineral page galleries. The rest of the photographs may be viewed by clicking on the link after the 10th photo. You can also view them all from the gallery link on the detail mineral page. The photos selected for viewing have been ranked by voting from registered mindat users. (Voting and statistics are available from the Add/Edit Screen.)
