Through its previous major update, which arrived in September, 500px gained support for a share extension that allows uploading of photos directly from other apps.
Now, 500px has more iOS 8 optimizations in store through its latest update.
First and foremost, 500px for iPhone now features a built-in camera with support for manual controls for exposure and focus, instead of automatic adjustments.
“For iPhone users, we’ve taken advantage of some of the new features in iOS 8 to bring you our own built-in camera!” 500px notes. “Featuring exposure compensation and manual focus when you need it as well as a full-auto mode when you don’t, our new camera helps you make the most of your iPhone photography.”
The iOS 8-optimizing update to 500px also adds support for logging in to the app using the extension of the popular password management app 1Password.
The update also introduces a couple of enhancements courtesy of Adobe.
One is the integrated photo-editing tools from Adobe Creative Cloud. And the other is integrated access to photos from Adobe Lightroom Mobile, which is available in 500px through the app’s revamped upload screen. (Photo uploading was added to the app in February.)
The update, while delivering the usual bug fixes and performance improvements, also brings the long-awaited full resolution support for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.
