Facebook Spruces Up Photo Feature, Supports High-Resolution Pictures, Faster Browsing and Uploading

Written By Sam on 2 October 2010

Facebook has announced ‘three big improvements’ to its Photo feature that include a simplified uploader, an improved viewer for browsing photos and support for high-resolution, print-quality pictures. This means you will be able to store photos up to 2048 pixels and also download high-resolution pictures. And you do not require a paid account to avail of this service.

Here’s a look at the updated Photo features:

  • Improved navigation/easier browsing
  • View photos and albums without having to go to a new page
  • Photo opens in the center of the screen, and can be closed when a user is done
  • No need to go back and forth between pages or reload the page
  • A light box for a framed effect and improved viewing.
  • Newly-coded viewer expected to make photo browsing faster
  • Easier tagging and uploading
  • Uploader now comes with the latest Flash technology for improved uploading experience.
