*jaw drop*

flickr is opening up storage size to ONE TERABYTE. For free users.

I am also really really really enjoying my new photostream look. It used to be white background + thumbnails of pictures, which is okay, but not great. Now the photos are much bigger--they take up the screen's width--which is so much better. It's not great if your internet's not fast, granted, but pictures are kind of an exception for me. When I work with pictures I want everything to be big.

I go to flickr occasionally and scroll through the recent photos (Explore). Have an adorable kitty picture I just found!: http://www.flickr.com/photos/zachsdame/8897036341/in/explore-2013-05-30


One terabyte. Oh my god.

The one thing I don't like about flickr though is that you can't DL or save photos from it--which I suppose makes it more secure for sharing, but Ack, it can be a pain at times if one is looking for photos...

No, you can! Although the uploader can remove that function, and I hate how hard it is to just get the image--it always kicks you to this lightbox page or something, and you have to hunt in the html code (or in the web page's html) to find it. I mean, the photos have to be hosted somewhere, and your browser has to download it somehow to display it. Only flickr does this stupid roundabout thing to prevent you from doing so usually. >:( I also hate how linking the picture through their code will lead to a landing page, not the actual jpg file.

Wait, can you see this page? http://www.flickr.com/photos/30266147@N02/7097958999/sizes/l/ It should give you options to view the picture in about a dozen sizes including original and a download link for for that size. (And you should be able to just right-click + save them.)
