According to BetaBeat, Flickr’s senior project manager, Markus Spiering told them the redesign would be seen by users some time around February 28th. The new UI will feature rows of images around four times larger than they are now and the familiar white space around images will also be gone. This look seems similar to a few sites that have been talked about recently, not saying that is the driving force behind the changes, which include more than just a redesigned homepage layout.Other notables include changes to the upload page and numerous other redesigns to help leverage some other Yahoo products that have not been fully integrated with Flickr. The photo sharing site has retained a loyal user base but casual users have moved on to other sites that provide something more than just hosting your image library. Don’t get me wrong, Flickr does have an impressive 3.5 million daily uploads which is only second to Facebook and with increased integration of other Yahoo services and a sleek redesign, they are poised to fend off some of the newer hip players in the photo sharing game.
