New Vintage Portfolio Theme, Two Paid Themes Now Free, Photo Party Winner Announced, T-Shirts Update

Published by Jen Tse · September 20th 2011

In an age dominated by digital, sometimes you want to relive the charm and imperfections of film. Now you can display your 500px photography in a nostalgic way with our newest horizontal portfolio theme for Awesome account users: Vintage. Thin white borders around your photos give them a fresh-from-the-darkroom feel. Viewers can use the clickable arrows to scroll, giving a cleaner overall appearance than a second scroll bar. Whatever your medium, your photos will look timeless. We're loving it!

Preview a working example here.

Also, two themes previously only available for Awesome account members are now free for everyone: Organizer and Black Space. Be sure to try them out under Portfolio > Themes.


The results from the 500px Photo Party at the CNE are in! Congratulations to Charlie Man for winning a Manfrotto tripod from Henry's. Please send an email to to arrange a day to pick up your prize.

Below are the blog posts submitted by attendees of the Party:

Carlos Bolivar, Charlie Man, Phil Edmondson, Sonsahne, and Brad Shaw.

i still think the selected image should be centered, not left justified... pretty please :)

bringing in a “vintage” template can be classy... however, it might signal an acceptance of lo-fi shots flooding in from iPhone.

ironically as I write this, I note that my profile pic is in fact, from instagram ;-O

Great news, really cool portfolio and fun blog posts... you could keep releasing new/different limited-edition 500px T-shirts every now and then - it seems they were a big hit :)
