IFTTT means 'If This Then That' and they are a service that connects all of your online services together, using incredible Recipes to link actions from one service to another. Today we're thrilled to announce that IFTTT has added a channel for 500px! Our channel includes a wide range of triggers, with more to come. This is also a two way channel, which means you can upload photos to 500px using IFTTT, as well as push your 500px out to other places. We've put together a few sample recipes, to show you a bit of what's possible with IFTTT and 500px.
This recipe will allow you to simply put photos in a specified Dropbox folder, and have them automatically be uploaded to your 500px Library. Uploading couldn't be simpler, and this means you can share on the go as well, from your iPhone, Android or tablet! Just install the Dropbox app on your device and add photos as you take them.
We've had many requests for Facebook Page integration, and here it is! With this Recipe you can share your 500px uploads to a business Page on Facebook automatically! Just upload your photo and it will be shared with the title, description and customizable text.
"The best camera is the one you have with you", right? With this Recipe your Instagram photos will automatically be uploaded to your 500px Library. No more needing to upload them separately to each service.
These are just a few samples, and we have more to show you on our IFTTT page. We want to see what you can come up with too! Share your best 500px Recipes with us in the comments and we'll pick our 3 favourites. Contest closes on June 19th at 5pm EST. The winners will receive a free year of Awesome!
