Unveiling New Themes & More

Published April 11th, 2011

For the past weeks we have been working hard to bring you some fresh features that we had been developing in special secret laboratories in the frozen north. Since we launched them, I can now speak what they are. Here we go.

We have introduced 4 new portfolio designs. All of them have, as usual, been adapted for iPhone and iPad, making presentation an easy and effortless task. All 4 themes are for premium members only, so get your Awesome account today — it’s cheap! (read below about cool features you'll get)

Moreover, you can now upload your custom logo for every portfolio. It’s fun and easy. See what can come out from it in this examples: iansobolev.com and jaredleckie.com. Comment or tweet us if your portfolio has a cool logo, we will add it here.

We have also upgraded all designs with faster core, so they will load faster and they have been tested with all modern browsers on both Windows and Mac. If you want especially quick performance, select mobile-optimized portfolio themes, such as Tiles, Square or Organizer. Remember — we do not resize or scale down your photos, so if you use highest quality JPG’s, we will keep them intact, so if you want blazing-fast speed, keep your JPG’s light and nimble.

We have spend few weeks and have migrated the site from Rails 2 to Rails 3 and have upgraded database servers, so everything should be smooth and quick now. If you have performance issues, please let us know at info@500px.com.

Part of new design theme, we have revealed new Login and Sign Up pages, which are light, beautiful, and easy to use on iPad/iPhone or computer. Look forward for move elements being moved to this new design language.

As requested, we have added 4 new categories by which you can sort photos — Nature, Performing Arts, Family & Street. This categories, which you can select when you upload photos, help others discover photographs based on theme. Use it wisely.
