Prices of Prime, a service started by Photography community website 500px have been revised. Now for USD 250, you can get royalty free license to use the original pictures offered on the site.
Of course to keep the site up, 500px is going to keep a cut of the profits earned by photographers. The new rates will give the company 30 percent cut. So photographers get 70% of the flat $250 rate.
There are some amazing photographers on 500px. You do not need to pay to check out the content on te site and you do not have to buy via Prime either. 500px is a site where photographers show off their pictures and sell their pictures.
