This week has seen some big announcements from Yahoo and today is no different, Yahoo has just announced many interesting updates to their photo sharing platform Flickr.  According to Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer’s Tumblr:

Photos tell the stories — stories we’re inspired to relive, share with our friends, or capture simply to express ourselves. Collecting these moments is a part of our everyday. Since 2005, Flickr has become synonymous with inspiring imagery. Today, we’re thrilled to take Flickr even further with a beautiful, completely re-imagined experience that puts photos front and center. When it comes to photography, technology and its limits shouldn’t hinder the experience. So we’re also giving our Flickr users one terabyte of space — for free. That’s enough for a lifetime of photos — more than 500,000 original, full-resolution, pixel-perfect, brilliant photos. Flickr users will never have to worry about running out of space.

Furthermore for $50 per year users will be able to remove the adds as well as gain access to different analytics tools, if you need more space (Really 1 TB isn’t enough?) then $500 per year doubles storage to 2 TB.

iOS users might remember that the iOS Flickr iPhone app  was redesigned in March, and according to the website since this major update Flickr uploads have increased by 25%.
