Shoot, edit, publish. Even faster.

Published by Diana Tula · December 2nd 2011

We are happy to announce that we have finished the development of the Lightroom publisher plugin for 500px, and it is now available for download at 500px.com/lightroom . We have developed the publisher plugin completely in-house to ensure best compatibility, continued support and development. During development, more than 500 photographers have participated in beta program, helping us achieve the best compatibility between different platforms and Lightroom versions. Thank you guys & gals!  

With the 500px Lightroom plugin you now can:
• Publish photos to public profile or a personal portfolio
• Create and manage portfolio collections
• Edit titles, descriptions, and other metadata and sync it with 500px profile or portfolio
• Read and write comments for your photos right from Lightroom
• See your individual photo statistics, such as views, favorites, votes and rating

Wonderful RC Concepcion has created step by step video tutorials, which explain installation and image management processes. Enjoy watching "Installing new 500px Lightroom Plugin" & "Creating/Deleting Collections and Images with the Lightroom plugin from 500px".

This plug-in continues to stop working.. I wish 500px would come out with a stable one for LR.

I don't seem to have too many problems, but the one "feature" that drives me to distraction is every time I use the plug, I am no longer "remembered" when I visit the site with my browser and I have to log in again. There are some other minor nit-pick like things that I am sure are on their list of things to improve in the next release. I also stopped using it for a while, maybe the logout thing got to me, I don't remember. I just started using it again now. I'll try to pay attention to the nit-picky things, if anyone cares.

it has definitively stopped working for me, it does not upload anymore. It does all the process like if it is publishing, even gets an ULR for the published photo, but there is nothing on that URL when it finishes and and then there is no way t upload the photo since LR thinks it is already uploaded.

it is just me or the plugin has stopped working? I can't upload anything, it says that it can not connect. But, as you can see... I'm here and I can connect...

does anyone else feel that the plugin is super sluggish? when I try to drop photos to it, it feels like I'm on a super old computer, and in fact, is a very powerful one, everything else works fine with the other exporters.

And another request for an Aperture plugin. It's what pretty much stops me using 500px more than 'very occasionally'

Nice work. Lots of functionality for a version 1. One feature that would be most beneficial to me is being able to rearrange photos in a 500px Lightroom portfolio, publish, and see the rearranged photos on the web in the 500px portfolio.

Thanks for releasing this! Is there anyway to sync the plug-in with photos we've already published on 500px?

Great plugin, however, I have separate catalogs for all my photo sessions. Why do I have to update and log in to 500px each time I open a new catalogue?

Works great! I finally started posting photos on 500px since yesterday... :o)
