One of the coolest features by far which is available to photographers on photo-sharing site, 500px is the ability to create a professional looking portfolio. While free accounts are limited only to one portfolio, it’s still a great way to showcase the best of your work.
Having just updated the iPad app, you can also now show off your portfolio to iPhone users with 500px’s newest feature. The site has just announced a brand new redesign of portfolios which is viewable on iOS, Android and other mobile devices.

The announcement reads:
500px Portfolios are now fully optimized for iPhone, Android and other mobile devices. Now every portfolio sports a clean look that adapts to your theme, and reacts well to touch gestures.
If you chose a light-grey or white theme as your portfolio, your visitors on mobile devices will see a white theme, and if you are into classic black, your portfolio on mobile will adapt to that too.
Viewers can now view all collections right away, and tapping a collection brings a familiar interface, where users can flick through the photos, or even enable the slideshow.
The update is available to all 500px users, who have full control over how their portfolio will appear on a mobile device, with the option to disable to mobile-optimized view if they choose. The feature is currently enabled by default.
If you’re still wondering if you should take the plunge and migrate over to 500px, check out our review here.
