Flickr Gets Redesigned, Offers 1TB Free Space

Just yesterday, Yahoo! announced the brand new design of Flickr and at the same time, surprises everyone by offering 1TB of free space.

At Flickr, we believe you should share all your images in full resolution, so life’s moments can be relived in their original quality. No limited pixels, no cramped formats, no memories that fall flat. We’re giving your photos room to breathe, and you the space to upload a dizzying number of photos and videos, for free. Just how big is a terabyte? Well, you could take a photo every hour for forty years without filling one.

Photostream has been revamped to show photos in a seamless layout along with customizable cover photo ala Facebook.

We want Flickr to be the most amazing community and place for you to share your photos. So, we’re also revealing a beautiful new design that puts photos at the heart of your Flickr experience, where they should always be. Whether it’s a sweeping landscape or a family portrait, we want every photo to be at its most spectacular.

There’s also a new slideshow mode that beautifully showcases photos so cab enjoy viewing photos without lifting a finger. The new slideshow has built in transitions and facial recognition technology.
