Designers respond to Flickr revamp

Yahoo has announced a “better, brighter Flickr”, which offers what CEO Marissa Mayer company calls a “beautiful, completely re-imagined experience that puts photos front and centre”.

Mayer highlighted the new photostream becoming a “vivid and endlessly scrolling gallery” and a full-screen slideshow. Users also get one terabyte of storage for free, enough, according to Yahoo, to house half a million full-resolution images. By contrast, the unlimited Pro tier is consigned to history unless you're already paying. In its place, a new 'Doublr' option merely doubles your storage for $499 per year.
