*PLEASE NOTE: Upon migrating to Format's portfolio service, you will need to create a brand new portfolio on Format. The migration is sweet and simple, thanks to Format's ability to "Import from 500px", which allows you to use images directly from your 500px account to craft your new portfolio. 

***Once you have migrated to your Format Portfolio, it is NOT possible to return to your previous 500px Portfolio.***

Frequently Asked Questions:

I just purchased an Awesome account and built a portfolio in the last X months - what does this mean for my Portfolio?

Your 500px Portfolio will continue to be available until your upcoming expiry date (can be found in My Settings -> Profile) after which the new Format based portfolios are only available with a Pro+ plan. As we migrate all of our Portfolio users to Format, you will be given the the opportunity to test out Format. If you don’t want to wait, you can upgrade to Pro+ now and get the new functionality immediately (  

Can I try Format before I buy if I am an existing Awesome member?

Yes. We will be migrating those who have a Portfolio to Format in a phased rollout. You will receive a notification when we’re ready for you to test out the new portfolios. The migration will take until the end of year to complete. Why so long? There are many of you and we want to provide a great experience.**

Can I keep my 500px Portfolio domain after migrating to Format?

No, Format will provide a new default domain once you have migrated. It is not possible for 500px to release your 500px domain, so it can not be used with your Format Portfolio. Your new Format domain will look like this -

If you have already purchased a custom domain, Format support will help apply that domain to your Format Portfolio seamlessly. 

If I sell my products / services on Format, will they take a cut from my sales? Will 500px take a cut too?

No, neither Format nor 500px takes a cut from store products sold from your portfolio. .

I have a 500px Portfolio and am not interested in Format, what will happen to my Portfolio?

500px Portfolios are being phased out and your portfolio will become inaccessible when your current annual membership expires.
