Galleries on Flickr. Curated by you. Over 1 million of them. Yay!

For those of you who are new to Galleries, simply put - they're an awesome way for you to curate a selection of up to 18 photos from other Flickr members.

"Thank you to our generous, sharp-eyed members who have curated Galleries so far. Selecting only 18 photos from a pool of nearly 6 billion photos is a brave task, we salute your curatorial judgement! You can explore more of their work Explore / Galleries or check out the Flickr Galleries group. If you'd like to get started and create some of you own, go to your first chosen photos and select the "Add to a gallery" link within the Actions menu or head to our galleries FAQs for more info," Flickr state.

Lastly, flickr announced that earlier this week, they've introduced a new way to enjoy Galleries in Light box mode. Just look out for the "Light box" option at the top of any gallery, and we'll drop the lights as you enter the gallery," flickr said.
