Yahoo recently released a new updated version of the popular image sharing platform Flickr, introducing three major components. The new features make it easier for users to upload, find, organise, and share photos and videos across the community.
“At Flickr, we have always dreamed of creating a space where you can store and manage a lifetime’s worth of memories”, said Tim Miller, head of Engineering at Flickr. “Today, we are taking that one step further as we bring users a brand new set of tools to unlock the power of 1000 GB of space.”
The ‘Uploadr’ tool for Windows, Mac, and mobile devices allow you to upload your photographs and videos from any connected device. The ‘Auto Uploadr’ tool for mobile devices automatically uploads images from your devices to the cloud and fixes duplicates. The Camera Roll on the Cloud uses advanced image recognition technology to provide easy navigation and organisation of your images. The Unfied Search Experience uses Flickr’s advanced search technology and provides a smarter and faster search experience.
The features were introduced by Andrew Stadlen, Director of Product Management (Search), Aditya Kashyap, Product Lead (Camera Roll), and Xanthe Travlos, Associate Product Manager (Mobile), Flickr.
