With the increased capacity, Yahoo said users could take one picture every hour for the next 40 years and not fill up their storage.
Yahoo said Flickr will now feature an "Activity Feed" that shows users the latest photos uploaded by their friends and presents them in a Pinterest-like layout that emphasizes images and not much else. Additionally, users can now upload high-resolution profile pictures and add cover photos to their profiles.
"We're releasing a Flickr that's more spectacular, much bigger, and one you can take anywhere," Yahoo said.
Yesterday, Yahoo annoucned that it had purchased Tumblr social network for $1.1 billion.
