Flickr launches justified layout for Photos from your Contacts page

Flickr has started rolling out their new UI updates. They have started with updating the ‘Photos from your Contacts’ page with a new justified option.

This new view loads the images across your display. The photos are justified just like how Google Plus Photos and Microsoft SkyDrive show photos.

Flickr launches justified layout for Photos from your Contacts page

Today, we’re excited to introduce a new look for the Photos from your Contacts page, called the Justified layout. We created this new view to make it easier to see the stories your friends are telling with their photos. While the previous layout choices are still available, the new design optimizes for seamlessly displaying more images at larger sizes, so you can see more of the activity from contacts, friends and family at once.

Needless to say, our Justified layout always respects the aspect ratio of the original image and will never crop your photos. We’ve also added quick access to comment on and fave directly on photos in this view, so it’s easier than ever to interact and engage with your friends.

They are going to roll out a similar view at other locations on their network. A lot more is expected to be released this year as Flickr tries to stop their users from migrating to competing services like 500px and Google Plus.
