In order for your photos to appear in Fresh (https://500px.com/fresh) upon upload via Lightroom minimum requirements of Title, Description and at least 3 Keywords should be added. Here is a step by step guide to add the necessary metadata to your photos:

Step 1
Locate Metadata tab in the right-hand panel

Step 2
Select 500px preset from the drop down list 

Step 3
Add Title, Description and Category to your photos 

Step 4
In the Keywording tab add at least 3 relevant tags to describe each photo
(Marketplace submissions require a minimum of 5 keywords!)

You are ready to Publish your Photo!!!

    I keep getting the error "1 photo was skipped because it doesn't have a title, category or three keywords." I'm just trying to upload one photo, and it has all of these things, plus a description, license type, and mature content = no.

    It seems to be requiring four keywords.

    Leon, I simply can not believe that this was my problem too. Their error message about 3 keywords is wrong, and I went through hell trying to figure out what was wrong. I tried to send ticket to their support. I got no answer even though I have paid subscription from them, so not only I pay for their existence, but the support is NONE. Beside their automatic reply that is... 

    Unreal.... As soon as I added 4 keywords, the picture was accepted...

    What is optimum size for the images to set in the plugin?  I had a pano that is 63,343 x 4,523 pixels and (at least when using the plugin) it choked on it. I then set the plug in for 5000 pxl on the long edge (with "Don't Enlarge") set and it uploaded OK. \

    But, my question is what are good values to leave the plug in set for?

    Please, for to put GPS data with lightroom plug in?

    For example : latitude 45° 38' 08.820'' N

    longitude 8° 01' 45.984'' E

    Many thanks.

    Have been fighting with this for a while now and just found that there is a 500px section added to my photos (so in Library mode, scroll right down to the bottom of all the boxes on the right hand side) and that has a Category field - over and above the Lightroom category field - filling that in did the trick for me.

    Well its not easy to use, and with doing all the above, it still won't load. Waste of time.

    With a new plug-in (version 1.11.0, released April 19, 2017) a new problem arose: the keywords from LR ceased to appear as tags in 500px. I have to enter them manually.

    Has anyone experienced this?

    I'm running version 1.11 and I just uploaded an image from LR using the 500px publish service.  The image did arrive with my keywords showing up as tags.  

    Did you remember to fill in the category, license type and adult items in the 500px metadata panel before you uploaded?  I've forgotten to do that many times with strange results.  

    I'm on a Windows/10 (x64) PC with LR/CC.

    With the update in April 2017 I have found this now works! Hurray! Makes it easier to publish now. Thanks.
