Two industry leaders, 500px and CanvasPop, are partnering in an innovative program to offer the 500px photo community more high quality printing options at preferred prices.

Both companies are rapid growth, design-obsessed businesses, with a strong commitment to their members' experiences both on and off the web. They're part of the high growth photo printing sector, which has been increasing by over 20 per cent per year and is projected to be a $1.9 billion industry in 2012.

CanvasPop helps people create their own personalized art in innovative, simple and fun ways. A premium user experience and quality digital printing is built into the company's DNA in the same way the quality of its online interface is integral to 500px.

"We take our photographers needs seriously," says Oleg Gutsol, CEO, 500px. "We only partner with brands that share our vision and commitment to excellence. With CanvasPop, we've found a company whose attention to detail, values and customer service matches the passion we have for photography."

"We worked closely with 500px to create exclusive pricing for their members and providing the highest standard in prints," says Adrian Salamunovic, CEO of CanvasPop. "What we love about 500px is their laser sharp focus on the user experience - they always put their community first."

CanvasPop has reduced shipping costs so photographers can expect to see a 50 percent higher commission from the photos ordered on 500px and fulfilled through the CanvasPop platform. And they've increased the range of sizes available to 500px photographers, who can now order custom prints in the following dimensions: 20 x 40, 12 x 48, and 18 x 48, 24 x 36 and 30 x 30.

Gutsol adds that this announcement is part of the company's evolution from being a premier hosting site to empowering photographers with seamless end to end solutions. "We're committed to offering additional resources and value to the 500px ecosystem," he says.

About 500px

500px is a photo community powered by creative people worldwide that lets you discover, share, buy and sell inspiring photographs. The first version of 500px came to light in the early days of digital photography. At that time, everything was slightly different - the Internet was slower, 3.2 megapixel cameras were the latest buzz, digital photographers were just getting acquainted with their tools, and 500 pixels was a good size for photos displayed on CRT monitors. Over the years, the 500px platform went through a number of revisions and changes, growing together with technology and photographers, and keeping focus on the highest quality photos. 500px was founded and is run by two acclaimed photographers and entrepreneurs, Oleg Gutsol, CEO and Evgeny Tchebotarev, COO.

Join us at Cloud Expo June 6-8 to find out how to securely connect your cloud app to any cloud or on-premises data source – without complex firewall changes. More users are demanding access to on-premises data from their cloud applications. It’s no longer a “nice-to-have” but an important differentiator that drives competitive advantages. It’s the new “must have” in the hybrid era. Users want capabilities that give them a unified view of the data to get closer to customers and grow business. The...
The current age of digital transformation means that IT organizations must adapt their toolset to cover all digital experiences, beyond just the end users’. Today’s businesses can no longer focus solely on the digital interactions they manage with employees or customers; they must now contend with non-traditional factors. Whether it's the power of brand to make or break a company, the need to monitor across all locations 24/7, or the ability to proactively resolve issues, companies must adapt to...
It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure. The typical organization currently uses more than a dozen sanctioned cloud apps and will shift more than half of all workloads to the cloud by 2018. Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. ...
The taxi industry never saw Uber coming. Startups are a threat to incumbents like never before, and a major enabler for startups is that they are instantly “cloud ready.” If innovation moves at the pace of IT, then your company is in trouble. Why? Because your data center will not keep up with frenetic pace AWS, Microsoft and Google are rolling out new capabilities. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Don Browning, VP of Cloud Architecture at Turner, posited that disruption is inevitable for comp...
In 2014, Amazon announced a new form of compute called Lambda. We didn't know it at the time, but this represented a fundamental shift in what we expect from cloud computing.

When growing capacity and power in the data center, the architectural trade-offs between server scale-up vs. scale-out continue to be debated. Both approaches are valid: scale-out adds multiple, smaller servers running in a distributed computing model, while scale-up adds fewer, more powerful servers that are capable of running larger workloads. It’s worth noting that there are additional, unique advantages that scale-up architectures offer. One big advantage is large memory and compute capacity...

Cloud applications are seeing a deluge of requests to support the exploding advanced analytics market. “Open analytics” is the emerging strategy to deliver that data through an open data access layer, in the cloud, to be directly consumed by external analytics tools and popular programming languages. An increasing number of data engineers and data scientists use a variety of platforms and advanced analytics languages such as SAS, R, Python and Java, as well as frameworks such as Hadoop and Spark...
