[dropcap_1]M[/dropcap_1]y new site for showing off images is called 500px.com and they beat the pants off Flickr and most other photosites by a large margin. You can click on the image below and see what I mean. You get the image and all the details you would like to know about the image plus an comments.
You DONT get the infamous Facebook compression fuzziness or the dated Flickr interface. And you can sell your images through 500px which is always a good thing.
You can write a blog on 500px. You can have a portfolio that is separate from the main photosite. You can embed images into your own website. You can track friend’s posting of new images and you can build a catalog of favorite images that you like. You can upload FULL SIZED IMAGES and to top it off, it’s cheap for a year 49.95 for the year with unlimited uploads.
What else is there? How about an iPad app that brings an excellent way to show your images on your IPad. After fighting with Flickr on the iPad for the better part of a year, this means alot to me. And you dont need to log in to see new images, just open the app. There are third party apps for the Droid users and they provide much of the same user experience. Since I dont have a Droid, I can not personal vouch for these apps.
