Flickr Adds Photo Embeds, Attribution to Images

Flickr Adds Photo Embeds, Attribution to Images

Flickr LogoYahoo has, in recent months and years, been working to turn around Flickr in hopes that it can convert it stagnant, but popular, photo sharing service into a modern contender.

In addition to offering up 1 terrabyte of space per account, it’s also been making changes to the interface in hopes of giving it a more modern aesthetic.

However, a new feature is bound to catch the attention of photographers and artists, two groups that make up Flickr’s core users, image embedding.
