As promised in our blog post from July 14 entitled What’s in store for Yahoo! Groups , we’re excited to share more details around the enhancements that you’ll start seeing within the Photos section of your Yahoo! Groups over the next several weeks.
While the enhancements at first glance may appear to be modest, we have in fact made several significant changes, including:
- Increased storage limit for photos, from 100MB to 100GB
- Unique image locations (in other words, a URL that will link directly to a photo within your Group)
- The original photo uploaded will now be stored in your group (which means that anyone can click to see the original size of the image when it was uploaded)
- The ability to upload new image formats, including GIFs, BMPs, and PNGs
- The ability to upload up to five photos that add up to 100MB (from 5MB)
We’ve begun slowly rolling these enhancements out to a handful of Groups and will continue with this process over the next several weeks so we can ensure a smooth roll out.
Once you have the opportunity to see the enhancements, let us know what you think by commenting below.
