500px redesigns website
By Andrew Hudson Published: July 23, 2013 Updated: October 30, 2015
Offering “a lush, immersive image that jumps off the screen and puts photos center stage,” photo-sharing website 500px has an improved layout.
The header is simplified and now includes the photographer’s information on the top left with share and like buttons at the top right. Underneath each photo, are details on the camera and lens, comments, the Popular Feed and a visual list of the people who’ve liked or favourited the photo.
“While many photo-sharing sites present images in small, square formats, 500px has gone in the opposite direction. We’ve just redesigned our photo page with an emphasis on aesthetics and showcasing the bigger picture.”

“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.”
