Picture ratings sites typically allow visitors to view pictures and give a rating. The web site keeps tally of the ratings and the results are also displayed alongside the picture.

Some sites offer head-to-head ratings; where two or more images are displayed simultaneously and the user is required to select the best.

Other features often include a facility to add comments, contact the submitter and view a profile of the submitter, and lists of new, hot or ugly pictures.

Sites submitted to this category should have facilities to:
  • View pictures
  • Submit pictures
  • Rank or score images; best / most attractive first
  • Filter out adult content

Sites with adult content should be submitted to the Adult category.

Sites which break the "best/most attractive first" rule should be submitted to Recreation/Picture_Ratings/Parodies
