Photography sharing website, 500px, announced adding support for wide-gamut colour profiles. It also allows now for searching for images based on the colour profile.
So far, 500px has been converting images to sRGB but now it supports wide-gamut colour profiles like Adobe RGB and ProPhoto RGB as well.
“Though sRGB has been standard in our industry for many years,” said 500px VP Kelly Thompson, “with today’s broad adoption of iPhones and wide-gamut displays, we can finally showcase each image in a more true-to-life way and allow searching by color profile.”
500px now also supports WebP format, which offers smaller file size with comparable or even improved image quality.
