Flickr used to be seen as the “go-to” place when it came to publishing your photos online. Over the past 18 months the space has become quite crowded with the likes of 500px, Smugmug, Google+ and of course The FaceBook.
One of the biggest issues I found with Flickr was the look and feel which felt old and dated, especially when (as I do quite often) I simply wanted to spend a few hours browsing photos. I want this experience to be something beautiful – it just wasn’t.
Well today, perhaps they are starting to move with the times – although it does seem that the move is almost a direct copy-cat of 500px. They call it the Justified View.
I quite like this. A very simple, yet elegant, way to view all my contacts photos. And unlike 500px I can actually add my like to the photo from that master page.
Good to see the lights are still on in the Flickr department …
