Yahoo’s CEO Marissa Mayer unveils an update to the company’s Flickr photo-sharing site. Among the changes are a redesign with larger images, the ability for users to upload full-resolution photos, and 1TB of free storage for everyone:
One terabyte is 1,024 gigabytes — enough to store more than 500,000 images at a resolution common to most smartphones.
Yahoo has redesigned the Flickr website to emphasize photos rather than text or white space, as was the case previously. Photos are bigger and shared in full resolution rather than compressed into a lower quality.
“Flickr was awesome once, it languished, and we now want it to be awesome again,” Mayer said.
