I am sure I know the answer to this portion of their promo email, but I really need some clarifications:
We are about to launch Market: the best place to sell your prints and digital downloads.
With the 500px Market, anyone can buy prints or digital downloads of your photos. Get your photos in front of millions of people, and start earning more.
What you need to get started
To best prepare for Market, and be the first to put your photos in front of millions of visitors, prepare your digital files to the following requirements:
• At least 3600px by the longest edge
• No watermarks or borders
• JPG format
• Have proper releases
Market will be open shortly, so get ready and be there!
M suggestion to avoid confusion about Watermarks etc is to explain why…. because I have spent a ton of time already doing all this prep and uploading photos to 500px.com – I really do not want to have to do it all again with only 3 sentences of information and none of them explain why….
I have already been through one market experience on 500px – Can we all get some clarification on the why we should redo our potentially large archive of uploaded content before asking us all to redo it for yet another market experience we have no real details about…
Hate to sound like a jerk – but I was looking forward to this potentially being my place to sell images…. we need more info and a bit less vagueness, or at least I do before I redo my entire library…
