Ratings and Reviews
I really like this app and the photographic community that supports it. Compared to some other similar apps (e.g., Flickr), it is much easier to build connections to interesting photographers and receive feedback quickly. Also unlike Flickr, nobody on 500px seems to use their ‘board’ as a dump for long series of repetitive unedited smartphone pictures. The actual upload process for pictures could be a little easier, especially for keywords - although the app suggests keywords, most are either repeated variations or just irrelevant, while it does not seem to recall your past often-used keywords from your galleries. Still, overall this is a great app and an enthusiastic, welcoming and discerning photographic community!
Good But Could Be Amazing
Unfortunately, evening gets compared to Instagram regarding photo sites. What I like about 500px is that I get to see a considerable amount of photographers from overseas. I also enjoy the feature that allows one to see what camera and settings were used to take the image. There are so many people on 500px using older cameras, and getting amazing shots. I love it. It’s the mind behind the lens, not the camera body!
The only downside is the implementation of tags as apposed to Instagram. Instagram has this down to a science, but I’m sure it is proprietary, so no blame on 500px, but it would be nice.
Would be 5 stars IF..
I could only figure out how to create Galleries. I had to go to the website on mobile to do it. Also I can’t add any of my photos to a gallery in the app, on the web I can.. why? Those annoyances aside I LOVE this app! Way nicer looking than Flickr, I don’t know why Flickr doesn’t have a dark mode (if they do it should be default). I also love that my photos got exposure much quicker than on Instagram. And I feel like these are actual photographers not influencers and bots. So far so great! Just NEED the option to create galleries and add our own photos to them. Weird that that’s not an option it’s as if we are missing the icon for it. It’s easy to find on their mobile website so it’s a very odd omission. PLEASE FIX THIS YOU GUYS! It will make a world of difference.
