Flickr revamps photo page

The default photo size is now larger

Flickr has given a makeover to the layout of its site's photo display page, making the default picture size larger, revamping the navigation scheme and consolidating capabilities and information under fewer menus and sections.

The overall goal of the changes is to improve the photo-sharing experience and approximate it as much as possible to the real-life scenario of showing friends or family one's latest pictures in person, said Tara Kirchner, head of marketing at Flickr.

"We're creating a bigger, faster and more lifelike experience for people to share and view photos on Flickr," she said.

Users will find that photo metadata, such as the photographer's name, the camera's make and model, the picture location and the time it was taken, is now more prominently displayed.

The navigation controls have been rearranged to make it easier for people to flip through photos, geotag them and access other albums, photo sets and groups.

Some key capabilities have been packaged under a new Actions menu, including the ability to add tags and notes, identify a person, and place the photo in a specific gallery.

Flickr, owned by Yahoo for the past five years, drew 85.6 million unique visitors and almost 200 million visits in May, according to comScore.

The site has 50 million registered members, who upload about 3 million photos and videos every day, according to Yahoo. There are 4 billion photos and videos stored on Flickr.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
