As far as I can see, even at the paid levels 500px has no built-in support for selling 'art prints' - by which I mean a buyer can't order a paper print from the site or from some 'partner' site via a convenient link.  Is that correct?

If that is the case, would I be allowed to display a link to some other site where prints are available?

That's correct. We no longer offer print sales through 500px directly. There is no problem linking to an art print site for your work.

Thanks.  If you don't want to get into print sales, I'd like to suggest offering the option of a highly visible "Buy Print" button which would be our opportunity to add a link to a POD site.    This wouldn't interfere with the licensing options, and would give people like myself more incentive to use 500px.

I would love to sell my images with 500px but they don't even have a watermark on the images! Is it just me or is it insane! So what if the right click is disabled - there are tons of free capture a screenshot programs to capture them.

@nuno, I just realized that the max number of keywords allowed by 500px is 30.
The industry norm is 50. This is why most of my files have ~50.
If 500px is only using the first 30 keywords, then I have a problem, since my keywords are not ordered based on their importance.

Could you please propose your developers to align the site with the 50 keywords de-facto standard?

Yes!  This is a dealbreaker for me.  Not going to rekeyword several k images to get on a new site.

The keyword ordering is extremely important in major big stock sites like Fotolia, Shutterstock...If somebody didn't have the keywords ordered per importance and matching, this is a big omission.

How do you order keywords when entering them in lightroom?

It is not important for Shutterstock. If I'm not wrong, it was made clear by Vincent.
It is for Fotolia, indeed, but that's another discussion all together.

500px should align their keywords number with the rest of the industry.

I can't believe it. Just because this will blurs the search and Shutterstock will never lower the quality of its search. Always will dominate some keywords and which will be will never been taken on random way i guess. The best is the human(not scrip) to decide which keywords describe the best some particular image and they will never be 30 or 50, but maybe 3 or 5 as first level of coincidence :)

It is your prerogative to be a "non-believer".

I go with this official statement from Vincent:

Hi,

The order makes no difference at all. In the customer search engine there is no preferential treatment for higher placed keywords.

It looks like it's true, because the keywords order on the site is not the same order as i have it.

Completely agree, and I believe that most of us. I hope 500px understand to fix this issue and increase keywords max to 50. And it's so logical, just drop one zero and result is so beautiful and clean 50 :)

Fotolia also has keywords alphabeticaly orderd on their site.
