TrekLens is dedicated to fostering a global $link, community interested in displaying and critiquing photos in a friendly environment.
The underlying theme of TrekLens is learning more about the world through photography. TrekLens fosters this by allowing photographers to display their work grouped by regions in a supportive and orderly environment. This is accomplished by an easy-to-use system which encourages people to critique each other's work. Integrated with this system are forums designed to encourage discussion about specific photos, countries, and general topics. Since TrekLens is globally oriented, it is completely multilingual capable, allowing for the widest audience possible. Ultimately, TrekLens depends on the civility, honesty and participation of its members. By reviewing the Terms of Service, the TrekLens community will remain true to itself, and helpful to all.

TrekLens was created by Adam Silverman and went online in March, 2004. TrekLens is based on the same code used by TrekEarth. However, TrekLens allows for more types of photos to be displayed, including pets, family, friends and more post-processing.
