Today, Yahoo unveiled an update to Flickr at the NYC event with a bunch of new features that includes a redesigned grid UI built out of images and up to 1TB of free storage for users. Good news and good news. Yahoo says that this storage space is enough room to store 537,731 “full-resolution” photos per user.
What else is new? Well, Photostreams and Sets are cleaned up in grid fashion and there is a share button on top for easy sharing to Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, email and newly acquired Tumblr. Single photos will be displayed full screen, while the size options and white background are gone.
The redesign is also headed to mobile devices on iOS and Android. The Android update should be available by the time you read this. Flickr Pro is no more since many of the features are available to the free account. You can get up to 2TB of storage for $500 per year and an ad-free version is priced at $50 for 12 months. All in all, it looks like a fantastic new UI and who doesn’t love 1TB of storage?
