Flickr Rolls Out Photo Overhaul to All Users

After three weeks of testing, Flickr is rolling out its massively redesigned photo pages to all of its users.

The redesign overhaul focuses three key aspects of the photo page: the navigation, the context behind photos and the size of photos themselves. Flickr (Flickr) has increased the default view size of photos “by 28%” — that's 640 pixels wide. You can also darken the background around photos so you can enjoy the images and nothing else.

Navigation has been revamped as well. There are new navigation buttons above each photo to help you browse from one photo to the next. You can also switch between contexts via the new film strip in the sidebar. Finally, photos now carry the “who, what, when, where, and how” of each photo. The company uses this information to help create photostreams and to facilitate photosharing and storytelling via the website's massive database of images.
