Yesterday we announced a bold new dithered redesign. But that was April Fools Day so don’t worry. However, many of you captured and uploaded the photos in glorious 1-bit black & white and we wanted to take a moment to show some of your creations.
We’ve been working around the clock on our bold new design, destined to become the default view for all photos on Flickr – and we can’t wait to show it to you today!
To try out the new look, click the computer icon with 2 dots at the bottom right of any photo page. This will be rolling out over the next 24 hours.
Your photos will be re-envisioned in a glorious black and white Atkinson Dither, removing the distraction of those many many megapixels and stripping your art back to its most original, naked, beautiful form. The new page design has been updated to match the new vintage aesthetic.
We’d love to see your photos in this bold new style. Take a screen shot and upload it tagged with “flickrdither” to share them with the rest of us.
We’re rolling this test out over the next 24 hours and then out as the default look in the coming weeks! Photography started in black and white, and we feel it’s time to take photo sharing back to its roots. Welcome to 2012, via the 1980s.
