Flickr to launch redesigned interface next week

Exclusive – Amwal Al Ghad

The American company “Yahoo” has declared its plan to launch a new updated version of Flickr’s interface next week.

Flickr’s senior product manager Markus Spiering, in his interview with Betabeat, confirmed that the new design would revamp the way photos are displayed, making them four times the current size, but still laid out neatly on the page.

The redesign, which will roll out from February 28, also includes a new upload interface that is intended to look more like a mobile app, enabling users to drag-and-drop images to their Flickr page.

More than 3.5 million photos are uploaded to Flickr via PC and mobile devices every day, and the site reached its sixth billionth upload last August.
