Today we’re extremely excited to launch our newest iOS mobile app version, iOS 500px app 2.5
. With every updated version we try to bring something exciting and useful to our members and, as always, we always support photographers and creatives to the best of our abilities.
We’re particularly excited about what 2.5 means for the convenience of uploading photos from your camera to 500px on the go. There are so many photographers who have asked for a simpler way to upload photos to the 500px platform while they’re out and about. Maybe you’re crouching in the middle of the forest for two hours waiting for that cricket to jump just right, maybe watching the sun go down and waiting to capture our enthralling Milky Way, or maybe on a beach vacation with your loved ones - you can now share your work with the 500px community wherever you are.
To help with this process, we’ve put together a simple step-by-step guide to demonstrate how to upload photos using your iPad and our latest 2.5 app.
1. Take a photo.
2. Take the SD card out of your camera.
3. Place the SD card in SD card to iPad adaptor. (You can buy these at any Apple store for around 35 USD.)
4. Import your photos to your iPad’s photo library.
5. Open the 500px app on your iPad and upload the photos to your 500px library. You can choose the thumbnail and add all the metadata as soon as you upload!
Voilà! It’s as easy as that. You can download our latest version of the app here
We know that for some, there is the concern that the quality of 500px will diminish with the ability to easily share mobile photos on the platform. Let’s remember the way our community lives and thrives together. It’s up to the community to share, but also to help each other improve in our crafts. We see 500px as a home for all creatives, and we will always encourage people to share their best works
, whether that’s using a Canon 5D Mark II or an iPhone 4.
