500px is a photographic community powered by creative people from all over the world that lets you share and discover inspiring photographs.
Being an artist has never been easy, especially in today’s fast-paced digital age. Photographers can’t just be artists anymore; they have to be managers, accountants, marketers, assistants, web developers, and their own mean, lean, shutter-clicking machines. Too many things to handle? We sure think so! We started the company to help photographers get greater exposure, reduce some of the marketing headaches, and let creatives concentrate on what they do best. We love seeing amazing work and equally love promoting it! A sense of inspired community is also important to us. We believe that the way forward is through presenting, discussing, supporting, and socializing with like-minded people.
If you’re a photographer, 500px is your connection to a whole world of people passionate about images. It’s the place for you to upload your work and create a beautiful portfolio, interact with a talented and dedicated community, manage your own blog, vote on photos, and have your work reviewed in return. We promote all the best work through a variety of social media, giving you the exposure you need to move forward. Even if you’re not a photographer yourself, you can follow the photos of your favourite photographers, create lists of images that amaze you, express your opinion in comments and by votes, and perhaps find a photographer for hire. There are many possibilities and we think that you’ll enjoy exploring them. See for yourself.

Image After is a large online free photo collection. You can download and use any image or texture from our site and use it in your own work, either personal or commercial.
In the imageafter.com ‘image’ directory you can expect free high resolution images of objects, places, animals, mechanics, insects, signs, circuits and plants etc. All stock photos can be freely downloaded and used in you commercial or personal works. The size of the images range from 1600×1200 to 2560×1920. Although some images are fit for wallpaper on your desktop, most images are raw unprocessed and sometimes even out of focus. This is done deliberately.
We could never determine what images are usefull or not for your projects. All images are in jpg or jpeg format. We do not recompress the images anymore. The way you see them thats the way they came out of our nikon digital cameras. However we did not made all the images on the site.
Currently only a small part of our collection is madeup by donations from visitors. This amount wil certainly grow in the future. People who donate images agreed to give up their rights to the images and that the images are theirs to give away.
