Two Toronto-based companies have joined forces. Format’s impressive online portfolio features have been partnered with 500px’s active community of over 9 million photographers across 191 countries
The 500px loyal user base has experienced tremendous growth since it was founded in 2009 and has been a leader in terms of its intuitive user interface and the overall quality of work showcased. Format offers an easy to use platform and a record setting user recommendation rate of 95%.
Some of the key benefits of building a photography site on Format are:
- Dynamic Themes
- Flexible Pages and Layouts
- Format Store: Open for Business
- Fully Customizable
- Smart Typography
- Client Proofing
- Format Publisher for Adobe Lightroom
- Blogging Format Galleries App
- Your Instagram + Your Portfolio
The free plan on 500px does still exist but it has a limit of only 20 uploads per week. I’m not sure how useful that would be for most photographers. However, the other 3 paid plans, which have all been redesign offer enough variety that would meet most photographers’ professional needs.
500px CEO Andy Yang did a great AMA on Reddit.
I’m looking forward to seeing how others photographers benefit from this amazing collaboration.
