Flickr has today added new Group features to its photo sharing service, together with a Justified View, providing the ability to submit photos directly to Groups via the Uploadr and brand new API methods for developers.
Since Justified View was launched Flickr users have been requesting that the feature be added to Groups. Flickr has now listened to the masses and from today can now browse the 1.2 billion photos in Flickr groups in their new Justified View.
“As you scroll through the photos in a Group Pool, the new sidebar persistently gives you context on what the group is about. It also surfaces the most recent discussions happening in the group and highlights the top tags as well as the top contributors for members who want to dig a little deeper.”
As well as the new Justified View, Flickr has also added the ability for users to submit photos directly to groups directly from its Uploadr facility. Simply click the “Add to Group” link within the editing panel and your photographs will be sent to the group at the same time that they’re published on your photostream.
