10% off all photos on 500px Prime until July 31Start exploring now!

This is my farewell photo. It was certainly nice time when I was here, but its time to move on.

Or rather say move back from where I get here at first place.

Why you may ask?

Well, first nail in 500px coffin was sudden stop in supporting Opera for upload. Not that important, I can still upload, just not much convenient. Strangely editing works just like in FireFox. They simply dont care much.

Second and most important is new JPEG compression introduced recently. If Im correct its somewhere around lvl 4 in PhotoShop or simply 50% quality. Which as you might guess I dont find worthy photographic server.

My photos (yea I removed most of them) are maybe not best, maybe I wont be greatest photographer ever. That doesnt mean I dont like my photos. I care when I take them, I care when I process them and its sure as hell that I take care how it looks when uploaded. 50% quality with artifacts really isnt cutting it.


Here is where I have quite a bit of my photos. Some better than others, some less I dont care that much about it. But all are 100% quality I uploaded. Which is why I like Tumblr way more than 500px.

With current settings I might aswell upload just to FaceBook, its about "that" bad. So, goodbye 500px.
