Popular image sharing and photo marketplace, 500px announced this morning they have made some updates to the way users are able to upload their photos to the website, which will (hopefully) allow photographers to speed up their online workflow a bit. The latest update now allows users to upload their images in bulk rather than having to painstakingly upload each individually, as Clay Cook explains in the demo video.
You can upload new images from your hard drive or import them from other websites such as Facebook, Flickr, Picassa, etc…While waiting for your image collections to upload in the background, you are free to spend that time tagging, titling, licensing options, and organizing the fresh uploads so they are ready for publication on 500px as soon as they are finished uploading.
Once inside the updated photo manager, users now have the ability to edit each photo individually or in bulk. This should be a big time saver, too, as it allows you to quickly grab multiple photos and apply bulk changes to them such as adding tags, changing the description, and/or editing EXIF information.
500px says bulk upload has been one of the most requested updates, so the announcement should make a lot of people happy. Though, I’m curious to see how the website’s popular rating system will be affected (if at all) by people doing mass uploads of every single image on their media card (the good and the not-so-good), as is bound to happen. Just a thought.
