Facebook Making Significant Upgrades To Photos

This afternoon Facebook announced a number of impending upgrades to their Photos product, the largest online photo product in the world. Many of the improvements that are being rolled out we’ve already covered through users who have sent screenshots over the past few months, however there are a few extra improvements that have not previously been covered.

The most significant improvement is that Facebook will now support high resolution photos. That means images can be as large as 2048 pixels in width or height. Additionally, Facebook is rolling out a new album layout to support the higher resolution images (as pictured below). These are the most significant upgrades for the most part, although there are a number of others, all highlighted on Facebook’s blog post from this afternoon which you can read here.
