Flickr has rolled out some new updates for the users of their photo sharing platform.
The company has launched a new uploader. It is powered by HTML5 technologies and support drag and drop.
Flickr highlighted the features of the new Flickr Uploadr:
We’re utilizing some advanced HTML 5 browser technology to bring you a completely new uploading experience on Flickr. You can now add photos by dragging them into the browser. We also show preview thumbnails, where supported, so you can use the intuitive drag and drop interface to manage and reorder photos before they hit your photo stream. You can also easily zoom, rotate or sort your photos by title.
Users can now sort the images in the uploader page itself. They can also add information like title, description and tags before they are uploaded and added to the user’s timeline.
The best part of the update is that they are now supporting photos of size up to 50MB for Pro users. The limit is also up for free account users: 30MB. This file size is enough to support ultra-resolution photos!
