500px this week redesigned their photo page to emphasize aesthetics and display larger pictures.
Features of the new photo page include Focus View, which maximizes the size of each photo; keyboard shortcuts for superior navigating; and a new header with photographer information as well as easy social sharing.
"We've watched the way our community interacts with photos on their screens, tablets, smartphones - all the different platforms," says Adam Shutsa, Lead Designer, 500px. "We've designed our new photo page with a stronger focus on the image, while keeping it easy to like, favorite, share, and be part of the 500px community."
The new photo page is available to all members.
"Our new photo page raises the bar in the industry and features photos that are up to six times bigger than before, for pixel-perfect landscapes, portraits and more," says Evgeny Tchebotarev, founder and COO, 500px. "By continuing to push the boundaries of our platform, we're offering photographers a more visually appealing way to showcase and share their work online than ever before and improving the aesthetic experience for people who just want to view the photos," he adds.
500px was founded in late 2009 by Oleg Gutsol and Evgeny Tchebotarev. Today the site boasts over 2.5 million users and a billion page views each month.
