What's New from 500px HQ: New Mist Portfolio Theme and More Options for Space II

Published by Jen Tse · September 26th 2011

Our newest theme for Awesome users, Mist, displays your photography in a clean, thumbnail-based layout that gives users an inviting preview of each of the images in your portfolio. Viewers can hover over each thumbnail to see the photo's title. Clicking on the thumbnail enlarges the photo into a lightbox, and clicking on the lightbox photo takes viewers forward through your portfolio. If a viewer wants to go back to the thumbnail view, it's as easy as clicking off the photo.

If you're an Awesome user, try it out yourself under the portfolio themes menu. Or, you can preview the layout in a portfolio of our Creative Director.

In other portfolio news, our Space II theme for Awesome users is now available in both light and dark. To toggle either setting, scroll to the bottom of your portfolio and click either the Light or Dark button.

Feeling left out of all the portfolio news and other great perks? You can be Awesome too—just visit your account settings page and make the upgrade for just $50 a year.

Great looking theme once again, but I am crying out for a theme that has a thumbnail based homepage with each thumbnail being the first image of each collection (and obviously a clickable link to each collection). Now that would be truly AWESOME. please please please?

Great looking theme, love it. But my collections does not work when I click on my mainpage, Jørn Veberg Photography, and then try another collection from the rolldown meny. If I click on my biography and then click back on any of the collections everything works... strange bug? my site www.jornveberg.com

Great to see more portfolio work being done. It's well worth the $50 for hosting my portfolio. Glad to see you're keeping us Dark theme users in mind with the new themes too.
