Finally Flickr, one of the leading (and probably the oldest) online sharing sites for photography, gets a much needed visual upgrade.
Like many Flickr uses I recently received an email notice from Flickr advising me of their new interface. I haven’t had too much of a play with it yet though I can say that it definitely looks a little classier.
The automatic re-sizing of images based on orientation (portrait vs landscape) is pretty cool and the wall of pictures is a nice way to view Photostreams.
The biggest change, and definitely the one Flickr is plugging, is that Flickr now comes with a FREE terabyte of online storage for each and every user. That’s pretty good and will definitely bring a lot of people back to the service.
I’m looking forward to some spare time to have a bit of a play with the new interface. I might have to take the camera out for some pics methinks…
