This week, 500px cryptically announced the 500px API would no longer be available for free. The announcement hints that the API will continue to be available for a price, but no pricing tiers or models have been published. The announcement was made via Hacker News and developers are speculating.
The Bigstock API was built for Facebook applications, print on demand services website builders, ecommerce platforms and ad creation tools. You can use the API to perform five request types: search, categories, image detail, purchase, download, and light boxes & saved images.
What do you think will happen if you bring the best minds in photography, photo-editing, web design and computer science together? Chances are that it could give rise to the next set of imaging applications that could much further than what Instagram has achieved. If it sounds interesting, you do not want to miss the Photo Hack Day 3 being organized by Aviary, the photo-editing API platform for web and mobile.
