New Flickr

Flickr:

We want Flickr to be the most amazing community and place for you to share your photos. So, we’re also revealing a beautiful new design that puts photos at the heart of your Flickr experience, where they should always be. Whether it’s a sweeping landscape or a family portrait, we want every photo to be at its most spectacular.

I think they went a bit too far, in that no matter how large your window you can no longer simultaneously view an individual photo and its metadata. But I like the general direction.

I was happy paying about $22/year for unlimited uploads and no ads. Now that the free account includes 1 TB of storage, removing the ads for $50/year doesn’t seem like a good deal.

Update (2013-05-22): You can cancel an old Pro account for a prorated refund. The statistics feature is only available with the old Pro account.
