Your 500px Home Feed Experience

What is the Home feed?

The Home feed is also known as your Home page, which is the central part of the 500px experience. The Home feed is the first page you land on when visiting 500px. This experience will deliver a personal experience by allowing you to pay closer attention to the photographers you follow. 

We put a huge focus on gathering feedback from the community while creating the latest version of the Home feed. The goal of the home page is to show you the photography that will interest and inspire you via an excellent experience that showcases photography in the best light.

 A few tips!

  • By following someone you are inherently saying that you are interested in this photographer’s work, and want to see more of their work. We are putting this work front and center for you.
  • The Home feed layout features big, full aspect ratio photos for the best possible viewing experience.
  • We recently made the web experience closer to the mobile experience for simplicity and consistency.
  • You can also see Galleries in your home feed.
  • A sidebar will allow you access to your personal statistics, see suggestions for other photographers to follow, and receive a heads up when new articles are featured on our ISO page.
  • We brought back the “notifications” tab (previously Activity) so you have easy access to what is happening with your content in a more readable manner.
  • On Activity, when you click on a photo that was commented on, it now displays that comment at top and highlights it.
  • We are keeping the Following/Activity/Notifications bar sticky as you scroll down page
  • You can also "Like" photos from the Home feed by clicking the bright red heart. This button will turn grey to show you a photo has already been liked by you. 

Where can I see uploads from the photographers I follow?

The Following option will allow you to view uploads of people you follow. From here, you will also be able to published Galleries as long as there are 10 or more photos curated.

What happened to the old Flow page?

The old Flow page is now viewable under Activity on the new homepage. This will still include likes, comments, uploads and photos added to Galleries.
