For a photo site, Flickr looks like it was designed in 1997. That ends today with a site redesign that removes all that icky whitespace and meta-data that only your photographer cousin cares about and creates a giant mosaic of color. Or shades of grey if your photos are all artsy and dramatic.

Flickr is also offering users 1TB of space for free. According to Adam Cahan senior vice president of mobile and emerging products at Yahoo, if you took a photo every hour of ever day, it would 65.5 years to fill that space.

My first impression is that it looks a bit shit now. That new photostream is probably great if all your photos are amazing but it's showing mine up for the rubbish they are. The sets page lloks good though. I think I will delete hundreds of photos.

The design is even worse than before. 1TB of storage is handy though they still don't accept RAW despite the store being massive now.

i need to pull/copy my photos off flickr. is there such a tool?
There's a few. Last time I needed to export a bunch of photos (in December 2011) it was a giant big ball ache, so many shitty Windows based apps (I'm OS X). The best one I could find was FlickrEdit http://sunkencity.org/flickredit It's a java app so make sure you have the java plugin enabled in your browser.
