Improving the Photos Experience

Today we’re announcing a few enhancements to our photo viewer, including high-resolution photos and fullscreen viewing.

High-Resolution Photos

Now the photo viewer will automatically display photos in the highest resolution possible. On a large display, this can be up to 4 times bigger than before.


Fullscreen View

Starting today, you can expand the photo viewer to take up your entire computer screen.

If you’re using the latest version of Firefox or Chrome, click the arrows at the top-right corner of a photo to expand to fullscreen.
