Flickr adds Pinterest attribution and large photos

Photo-sharing website Flickr has added a “Pinterest” button in the share menu to easily “pin” everything that you can share via Flickr, including photo pages, favorites, and groups. Flickr has also updated their website to show bigger photos using a “liquid” layout that automatically resizes for dimensions of the user’s browser window.

“Making sure you receive proper attribution when your photos on Flickr are shared elsewhere on the web is very important to us. … we are very happy to announce that we’ve worked closely with Pinterest to make it even easier for you to share to Pinterest in a way that will ensure that your Flickr photos are properly attributed, regardless where they are pinned from.”

“Hi-res images on the photo page let you share all the detail side by side with the context of your photos. Location, time, camera, title, description, tags and more are all there to tell the full story around your photos.”

“Flickr’s ‘liquid’ design adjusts the photo page and image size based on the size of your browser window. With that your photos will look great on a laptop screen, and look even more stunning on larger screens.”

Meanwhile, Gizmodo posted a less enthusiastic article entitled How Yahoo Killed Flickr and Lost the Internet.

“This is the story of Flickr. And how Yahoo bought it and murdered it and screwed itself out of relevance along the way.”
