500px Review

Author by

500px is photo sharing website ideal for professional photographers. This company provides many image storage options, numerous uploads, and the ability to work on both your computer and mobile devices. You can also browse through thousands of photos on the website and connect with other photographers.

There are four plan options available. Higher-priced plans offer Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom to help you polish and perfect your images. The basic, free plan offers 20 uploads a week. This means you can only upload your favorite photos every seven days. However, all paid plans provide unlimited uploads, and higher-priced plans offer up to 3,000GB of storage space. This provides enough storage to store up to 100,000 photos.

With this image sharing service, you can upload and access your photos on both your computer and mobile devices. You can share photos on most social networks from all devices as well.

Another advantage to choosing a higher-tiered plan is you can create your own customized portfolio. 500px makes it easy to create a website, and you don't need to understand code to create it. You can customize your fonts, colors, themes and sizes. However, if you understand coding and have experience creating websites, there is the option of creating your own themes for your site.

The 500px website provides a large community of photographers. You can browse through hundreds of images from photographers and connect with experts. You can leave comments for photographers, tag photos and even purchase images on the website.

500px provides extensive customer support on its website. You'll find several articles as well as support topics. If you need additional assistance, email options are available. However, we could not find a phone number for customer support nor live chat.

It's easy to waste hours scrolling through the images in 500px, but the best part about this site is the unlimited storage space for your own photos. And while there are some drawbacks to this photo sharing site (you must purchase the higher-tiered plans to receive a portfolio), 500px is a solid choice for young professional photographers looking for a place to showcase their work.
