It is about time they upgraded their site
If you haven’t already notice, Yahoo has
released a major revamp to
both its mobile and desktop versions. For those that do not know who or what Flickr
is, it is like an image bank where it helps you store and mange a lifetime’s
worth of captured memories.
These updates include a more intelligent
search tool and a bunch of other features that makes it easier for you to
organize your images (the Obsessive Compulsive Disorder in all of us can finally take a chill pill),
share photos and videos across devices.
So here are the three things that Flickr
Uploading of Images Now a Breeze With Uploadr (this is not a spelling error)
How about half a million
images while we are at it? With Yahoo’s new Uploadr for Mac and Windows computers
or the Auto- Uploadr for mobile devices, this is now a possibility! Photos and
videos that are currently on the device or newly captured will be automatically
uploaded and marked as private. For those worrying about duplicated images –
Well, they get removed automatically.
2.Magic Up in the Clouds
With the new dynamic Magic
View feature you can now organize images automatically across 60 categories
that include landscape, animals, portraits, etc. In addition to that you can
now download photos or videos in bulk and share them via link, email,
Instagram, Facebook and more with just one swipe. We think that this is the
feature works best for avid photographers and those who tend to document their
wanderlust holiday trips!
3.A Search That Actually
With Flickr’s revamped
search technology, you can easily search for images of specific items or places
and search by holiday, dates or location. The new search fiters are also pretty
cool as you can filter images by colour, size or orientation.
If 1,000GB of cloud memory and uploading of
images directly from your mobile device still doesn’t interest you, there are a
few other picture cloud sharing sites like Picasa, Photobucket and ImageShack
that are pretty awesome too!
