500px and Format

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
500px supports a clean and consistent user experience.

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.
