Now Access, organize, share and find your photos & videos on Flickr with enriched experience

Yahoo! Inc. enhances user experience by adding new features in Flickr, desktop and mobile. Now, it becomes more intelligent search tool and set of features that make it easier to access, organize, find and share photos and videos across devices. The overhaul brings a seamless, unified experience to the community of over 112 million users, and allows them to more efficiently manage over 11 billion photos on Flickr today.

Three new significant components of this upgrade include:

Uploadrs: Users can upload as many as half a million photos from their desktop, an external hard drive, iPhoto, their mobile phone and more, using Yahoo’s new Uploadr for Mac and Windows and Yahoo’s new Auto-Uploadr for their mobile device. Photos and videos currently on the device or captured as new will be uploaded automatically and marked as private, and duplicates will be removed.

Camera Roll in the Cloud: Navigate through thousands of photos and videos in the new interface, supported by advanced image recognition technology. The dynamic Magic View feature organizes a user’s photos automatically across over 60 categories (landscapes, animals, black and white, portraits, etc.). Users can also browse their Camera Roll by date. For the first time, users can bulk download photos and videos or share privately via link, email, Instagram, Facebook and more with one swipe.

Unified Search Experience: Flickr’s advanced search technology and powerful computer vision algorithms also provide a smarter and faster search experience. Users can easily search for images of specific items or places, or search by holiday, date or location. Just as easily, users can search for images of the London Eye because now Flickr understands a user’s intent and finds photos of the giant ferris wheel, not just photos of countless eyes taken in London. A user can also filter images by color, size, and orientation, discovering panoramic shots of the sky with blue and magenta hues.

Flickr members can enjoy these updates by logging into their account and updating the app from the App Store or from the Play Store. The desktop Uploadr for Windows and Mac are also available for use today.
