Rating pictures for personal use?

TL;DR Are there websites that allow to easily get rating of pictures from a group of friends or even strangers?

Hello all. My picture collection from all the travels has grown considerably and I'd like to print some of them out to put up around my place. The challenge is that even from the select few, there are quite a few, so in addition to selecting myself, I'd like to get friends' opinions (maybe strangers' too) on which pictures they like the most and I would print some of those out too. Format can be anything from a survey to... I don't know, swipe left/right? Thanks!

While I have had my share of editorial feedback over the years, some rather soul-crushing, the ones that got published were almost always the ones I thought were my best. For something that will hang in your home or office, I'd suggest selecting only those you like the best. It can be hard to "eliminate" what you think are good images but the best advice I ever got was to keep only your very best work and print those for display. Strangers on an internet site will not have your sensibilities and priorities.

I would agree with the above, if they're for home. I had one photo selected as the cover of our company calendar, and another chosen to hang at our training facility, both by "professional art evaluators/photographers", and neither are among those I've printed for home use.

Thank you for the link.

And to expand a little on my thinking, most pictures would be my selection, but I am also thinking of having a rotational section, and since it's still a choice of the pictures I like in general, they don't have to be my very best (to me). Just a different perspective to add to my personal gallery :-)
