Flickr Adds ‘New Lightbox Contact Photo Views, and Keyboard Shortcut Guide’

A couple of improvements launched today to the Flickr.

“More views for your contacts recent uploads page and giving you a way to see all the shortcuts with the press of a button,” informs flickr.

More views for photos from your contacts

Today’s launch adds following new features to the Recent Uploads from your Contacts page.

  • Selectable photo sizes, so that you can view square, small, medium, or large photos
  • Keyboard shortcuts, so that you can navigate quickly through pages of photos

    The photo page redesign alone introduced over a dozen shortcuts to make it easier to do things like navigate through a photostream and add a photo to your faves.

    “Starting today, you can press the ? key on any Flickr page to see what keyboard shortcuts are available.*

    Different shortcuts are available on different pages (i.e. the photo page, a set page, photostream) and we show the shortcuts available for the page you are on. Fancy!

    * No need to hold ‘Shift’ when you press ?. Just press it and we’ll give you the guide,” flickr explains.
