Flickr Galleries, now even bigger.

We can see that the number of photos people take has drastically increased in the past few years.

While we want to stay true to our original intent for galleries, giving our members an opportunity to engage in activity that is similar to what a curator of a gallery or museum might undertake, we have heard from many of you that you would like to be able to fit a larger number of photos into your galleries.

This is why we are happy to announce that we increased the maximum number of photos in a gallery to 50 (from previously 18). With the added curation space, we are even more curious what you will make of your Galleries and how you will use them to showcase the photos on Flickr that inspire, surprise and delight you. To get started, simply open another member’s photo and click the “Add to gallery” link underneath it, then share your best galleries with us in this FlickrCentral thread.

Here are a few of our all-time favorites:

Gallery: Red Dust

Gallery: Moth Trails

Gallery: cats on bikes

Gallery: Looking into the Past

Gallery: Glaciers on a human Scale

As always, we welcome you to share your thoughts on the new limit as well as other ways to improve galleries in the help forum.
