Photo-hosting and sharing service Flickr today unveiled a brand new design that lets users store and share full resolution photos. Storing large, high-quality photos can quickly eat up the 1 to 5 GB of data typically offered by free photo-sharing services, but Flickr has raised the bar to supply a terabyte of storage. The upgrade raises Flickr’s cap to 1,024 GB, which should make it incredibly difficult to run out of storage space. It would take nearly 437,000 8 megapixel photos to use a terabyte.
Yahoo debuted a completely revamped interface for sharing, browsing, and searching for photos when visiting flickr.com on a desktop. The Android app has also been updated to reflect the full-screen approach on smartphones and tablets. It allows users to upload full-resolution photos. Flickr users will now be able to consolidate their entire photo collection and view images from anywhere, as well as share photos using the app.
