Yesterday was a big day for Yahoo! after the search giant purchased blogging service Tumblr for a cool $1 Billion. Yahoo! also relaunched their Flickr photo service in a huge way, with a redesigned photostream and a whole terabyte of storage per user. Hit jump fo Yahoo! CEO Marissa Meyer's message.
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.
