The only online site I use apart from my own is 500px.

I have applied to IT positions several times at 500px (they are located here in Toronto).  I have never received a reply.  I do not use them, I have stayed with flickr as I like the changes they have made. 

Interesting that flickr also started in Canada before Yahoo purchased them.

I use it mainly because i can share images with family and friends and they dont need an account to view them. I think they have just started doing the groups thing if thats what you are into. Easier to use than flickr as well imho.

Yes it's free with a maximum of 20 uploads per week. There are two other schemes with unlimited uploads at $25 or $75.

They must have changed that recently, it used to be 12 per month. Is it 20 per week or per month? It's nigh on impossible to find out what their terms are. I don't like the site. I find it very tricky to navigate and impossible to set up a 'flow' that interests me - in the time, that is, that I was prepared to invest in it, which was about five minutes. The rating system is utterly baffling and I'm not sure if it serves any purpose whatsoever, since the ratings change over time (they always seem to decrease unless you constantly tout the pictures).

It's 20 uploads per week free. Sorry I forgot to state two other schemes with unlimited uploads at $25 or $75 are per year.

500px has come over all twitchy again - uploading is always a long winded process, but today it's a nightmare: 'invalid upload key:error 503'. Does anyone on here who uses it know where the 'Help' page is, or if there even is one? It's not an option in any of the menus I can find.
