Facebook Upgrades Photoviewer

Last week, Facebook announced updates to their photo viewer, including high-resolution photos and fullscreen viewing.

High-Resolution Photos

Now the photo viewer will automatically display photos in the highest resolution possible. On a large display, this can be up to 4 times bigger than before.

Fullscreen View

Now you can expand the photo viewer to take up your entire computer screen. If you’re using the latest version of Firefox or Chrome, click the arrows at the top-right corner of a photo to expand to fullscreen.

Will you take advantage of these new features? Will this effectively kill photo sites such as flickr? Comment below.d
