Flickr is now introducing a new “Virtual Photography” category for those who snap images in video games to express their art. The platform currently offers three separate categories: photography, illustration and screenshots, but Flickr says it doesn’t feel like video game shots fit into the last category particularly well, and so it decided to open up a new segment for that type of content.

“By putting your work into one of these categories, you can use filters to limit your search results by interest,” the platform explained in a blog post. “For instance, virtual photographers will be able to filter by ‘virtual photography’ while conducting site-wide searches if they only want to see that kind of work, while avoiding real-world photography or other art and illustration.”

The move probably doesn’t come as a surprise to those who’ve been attached to the gaming industry over recent years. More and more games ship out now with photography modes, and different consoles allow players to share those screenshots on social media platforms like Facebook or Twitter too. Flickr’s new category will make the image hosting service more competitive within a rapidly growing industry.
