Flickr offers more than just photo-sharing More Than Photo Sharing: 5 Unique Uses For Flickr More Than Photo Sharing: 5 Unique Uses For Flickr Flickr is best known as one of the easiest ways to share and store your photos online. We've come up with a few unique ways you can get more out of Flickr that go beyond... Read More , but that core feature is getting a lot of love from Yahoo. After giving 1TB of storage for all users, it’s now slowly rolling out a new Photo page for some of its users, which puts the focus on the images, similar to Google+.

The new look turns the page into two panes, where the left is the photo, shown in the best possible resolution and at its largest size. The right is a sidebar (A) with all the information you would need about the image.


(B): You can quickly share a photo on social networks, add it as a favourite, or perform other actions.

(C): You can read the latest comment on the image, as well as add a new one through the provided box.

(D): Information about the photo — such as the camera, EXIF data, photo settings, license, privacy, etc. — is available at a glance. “This is also where you can change the context you view your photo in, whether it’s a photostream, a set, a group, or other exciting areas on Flickr,” the company says.


(E): Clicking the ‘X’ takes you back to the justified view you came from.

(F): To navigate to the previous or next photo, click on the left or right portion of the image, respectively.

The feature is a slow roll-out and users will see a button to check out the new look. “If you haven’t seen a button allowing you to opt-into the new experience yet, stay tuned! We’re rolling it out to more members every day,” Flickr says.

When we last polled, most of you said you would use Google+ Photos over Flickr. Will Flickr’s new Photo page and the 1TB storage change your mind?

    Any idea where the "View All Sizes" option moved? It seems to defeat the purpose of upload full resolution photos if you cannot access them. Thanks! I do like the new layout, it is very Google+ looking, but that is a good thing to me.
