Hello,
500px plugin version 1.3.2 should work at least for a while but starting from June 15 it will stop working:

And now, 500px stops working.

There was enough time for an alternative like Unsplash, so where is it?

Unfortunately Unsplash api guidelines and usage limits doesn't allow programs like gPhotoShow to access their photos

I contacted Usplash API team, here is their answer:
Thanks for reaching out! Unfortunately, these uses of the API violates ​point 3 of the API Usage Guidelines - You cannot replicate the core user experience of unsplash.com

The best way to make sure your application doesn’t violate this guideline is to integrate Unsplash inside an existing app that offers more value than simply the Unsplash integration.

Some examples:

✓ the Ghost integration brings Unsplash inside Ghost’s editor to improve the workflow of finding beautiful images. Without the integration, the app still offers a lot of value to its users.
✕ a wallpaper app that returns Unsplash images for downloading. Without the integration, the app has no content.

Because your app is a wallpaper app, it currently violates the above API Usage Guideline.

Just wasted an hour trying to set up 500px and download the plugin only to eventually find this forum thread.

You may want to delete this page which is massively misleading. [url]https://www.gphotoshow.com/plugin-500px ... lpaper.htm[/url]

Hello,
I apologize for the inconvenience, I removed any link to that page but it seems you can still find it using search engines. I will delete the page.
