But now all that is past, with Facebook all set to roll out changes starting next month. Now Facebook users can upload images with a resolution of 2048 pixels on the largest edge. In addition to this you can now download your friends’ photos to your hard drive and have it printed.
Facebook has also made viewing photos more convenient, using the “light box” design motif that blackens the other elements on the page, and allows the user to open the photo in the center of their screen and close it when their finished viewing it. There’s no need for users to go back and forth between pages or reload the page.
Another new improvement is the “Bulk Tagging” that will allow users to tag more than one photo of an event at once. According to Sam Odio, Product manager Facebook “With our new uploader, you will be able to tag multiple photos in the same album all at once, as well as tag photos of the same person with a lot less effort.”
