Flickr Photo Page Revamped

Yahoo-owned picture and video sharing service Flickr yesterday unveiled some subtle changes to its photo pages.

CNet reports that the soon-to-be-released update includes wide-format homepage and photo pages, compatible with wider desktops, a picture display option of 640 pixels wide, smaller gaps between the pictures and their descriptions, and ability to add more information about the photograph such as time and location.

The new updates will also include a 'low light' setting, allowing the user to highlight an individual photo and darken the rest.

In a statement, Flickr said: "We've been keen to build a better showcase for your photos for some time. We always had location information and we always considered it to be important, but we are just now getting around to making that more prominent."

Flickr has also revamped its Comment and Favorites features.
