Just a few months ago, Yahoo announced that it had completely redesigned Flickr in an attempt to make the service more modern and user friendly. Yahoo has once again updated its image hosting and sharing service and has focused on making individual photos as large as possible.




Alongside the large photos, Flickr has moved all of the extra info, additional images, and relevant information off to the left hand sidebar. This really cleans things up and makes navigation easier than ever. Additionally, the new layout really speeds things up, which is something many Flickr users had complained about since the redesign was launched.


"With the new photo experience the image is about 25% bigger than on the previous photo page," Flickr said in a blog post. "You'll see more pixels, get a cleaner view without any elements on the top or the bottom of the screen, so that photos can really be the center point."
