VIZPARK takes your privacy very serious! That´s why the members directory only includes profiles of members who have decided to publish their profile.

Member Directory - How to become a member View public members

The MEMBER DIRECTORY includes all member profiles of VIZPARK users who decided to publish their profile to other members and the public. Each member profile needs to be verified by VIZPARK to avoid spamming and keep the community healthy and professional.

If you want your profile to appear in the members directory, your profile needs to be verified once. Only verified members can post images on the User Gallery, so we recommend to get your profile approved. You can still choose which parts of your profile should be displayed or hidden.

VERIFICATION is simple, don´t worry:

  1. Login to your VIZPARK ACCOUNT (MY ACCOUNT)
  2. Choose – MY PROFILE – and scroll down
  3. Click – Publish my Profile –

Your verification request will be processed by us as fast as possible and you´ll get an email confirmation when it´s done. Usually this should not take longer than a few hours.

Publish images to the User Gallery Image Publisher

The USER GALLERY is a place where every verified community member can publish their own images to share with the community and public. Once a user profile has been verified, it´s really easy to publish your images here.

How to publish images:

  1. Enter a TITLE (e.g. Case Study House 22 by Pierre Koenig)
  2. Enter a decription (say something interesting about the image, which software did you use, which renderer, what was special about it)
  3. Add the IMAGE with SET FEATURED IMAGE
  4. Select the products you used Select Products
  5. Upload and publish with SUBMIT IMAGE

Your published images will NOT be approved by us before posting, so we trust that you only post images that a suitable for the community. Though We keep the right to remove images that we feel inappropriate or unsuitable.
