How do I upload photos?
You can upload photos using the Upload page. It's best to upload photos where its longer side is greater than 3000px. This will help ensure great quality on 500px and all of our Apps, as well as the ability to sell your photos in the Store, if you choose to enable that option. You should use sRGB colour profile when processing and exporting your photos.
Be aware that photos on the upload page may appear pixelated. In order to keep performance fast on the upload page, we reduce the quality of the image. After you have completed the upload, they will be reprocessed and should not lose any quality.
Our uploader is HTML5 and doesn't require any additional plugins. It will support all modern browsers, such as Firefox, Chrome, Safari 6+ or Internet Explorer 10+.
