500px Hack Day

Published by Ash Furrow ยท July 20th 2012

Today was an internal Hack Day at 500px, the goal of which is to make a thing. Any thing you want, but you should have a demo at the end of the day.

This demo day was a huge success and a lot of fun. We saw a lot of promising ideas. Some of them were tools that will make our jobs easier, and some of them were proof-of-concepts which may become a product someday.

We'll be holding these Hack Days more regularly in the future, so stay tuned!

I want to have the chance to download my own pictures!! Many off us have 500px like a library, to show off pictures and i good place to place all the pictures that are very good. If i quickly need my own pictures, it would be perfect if i can login to my account and just download album or singel pictures.

If this funtions works in 500px, you getting more people using 500px.
I liked flickr because of that, but like 500px for his beauty. So please get this function on 500px.

That's a great idea - I'll talk to our web developers about it today.

Get rid of the 'dislike' button. Or at least have the users name tied to it to lessen the trolling.

There is much discussion about the dislike button on the 500px Help page http://support.500px.com/ If you think your photos are trolled send Alex links to help@500px.com and he'll look into it.

I preferred the site without the standardized photo size.

Thumbnails and photo pages always were at set size parameters. Or are you referring to other photo sizes?

I'm really sorry you feel that way, but many users are interested to see what goes on in the 500px office. This wasn't a party, but a day to build things, which many other companies (including Facebook) routinely have.

If you have specific feature requests or suggestions, you can email help@500px.com.

This was only a hack day - we'd only release a highly polished product. Rest assured, some of these will find their way into 500px soon!
