Hacker News author Jeremy Scahill said today that he has created a self supported image media platform that allows users to create self-supporting images.
He said that it can help people get back into the habit of looking at their own work and engaging with it.
Scahil also said that he will be posting a new version of the site in the coming days.

The self-powered media website allows users and companies to publish images as a “web-based image platform,” a new way for people to generate income from their own images.
The platform will be built around three core features: a search feature, a video preview and a pay-per-view platform.
A search feature that lets users search for and find images that can be used in self-made images and create images with images they create.
The preview feature lets users view their own content and create their own image for free.
An image preview feature that shows users how they can preview images they generate from their work.
Video preview, a feature that gives users the ability to watch videos from other users and use those videos to create their content.
“I believe that self-guided media will be the next big thing in the digital art space and this is my first step to bringing this to the world,” said Scahills.
“We believe that in the long run, the technology will change how people communicate with each other and how we create content.”
Scahill is not the only one to make a claim about the potential of self supported media.
In January, The Economist wrote about how a “self-built” site that enables users to self-publish a product was coming, and in April, the New York Times reported on an attempt to create an app that would let users create images for their own works.
Scahil said that the site is still in the very early stages and he has not set a goal of how many people will be able to use it.
“The goal is to get as many people as possible to use this as an outlet for their art,” he said.
