Flickr Gets a Makeover, Photo Pages Stretched and Redesigned


If you login to Flickr today, you should see a notice at the top of your photo pages informing you of a soon-to-be-released redesign and allowing you to preview it. The new design features the photograph much more prominently, upping the size from 500px wide to 640px on a wider page. The goal seems to be making the page cleaner and more minimalistic, with many of the icons moving to drop-down menus. There’s also a heavier emphasis on geo-tagging, which appears as a small map to the right of the photo.

Here’s a screenshot of the current design for comparison:

Personally, I think the new design looks great and is definitely a step forward. What’s your opinion on the redesign?
