Get More From Flickr: Navigate and Explore

We’ve been hard at work making Flickr the best possible experience for photography lovers everywhere. Today we’re excited to share that we have a new, simplified navigation bar and a new Explore page.

Our new nav bar was designed to make browsing Flickr faster and easier so you can quickly get to the photos you love. While we removed many of the old blue links, we made sure that you’re still able to access most of your favorite features right from the nav bar. We think this makes for a simpler and cleaner experience. While some of you might not see the navigation bar already, don’t worry. It will roll out to everyone over the next few days.

Flickr's new Global Navigation and Explore

In addition to the navigation bar, we also created a new Explore page. We know how much you love the justified view of photos that we’ve incorporated into the Contacts, Favorites and Group Pool pages so far. Now we’re bringing that same awesome experience to a new ‘Explore’ landing page. The new layout seamlessly lets you view some of the most stunning and beautiful images uploaded to Flickr. Check out the most interesting photos added in the last 24 hours or go back in time to see amazing photos from the past. Over 8 billion photos have been uploaded to Flickr to date. So start exploring and discovering new photos and photographers!

We’re always eager to hear what you think, so please give us your feedback in the Help forum. If you encounter any bugs, we’d love to hear about that too.

And for you iPhone lovers, be sure to check out our updated Flickr app for iPhone we announced today.
