Facebook updates photos; high resolution images, new viewer, easier uploads

Social networking site Facebook has updated their site’s ability to store high resolution photos as well as view, tag, and upload images. The improvements will allow users to upload high resolution candids that are 2048 pixels on the largest edge; previously 720 pixels was the limit. The site will also launch a new photo viewer that opens over the main Facebook page; allowing users to browse whole albums without having to jump to a new page. “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,” writes Facebook. The new, improved uploader will be Flash based. According to Facebook, the high resolution photo uploads are available today (although not for us) and the other new features should be rolling out shortly. More →

Google provides tool for Mac users to upload email to Google Apps

Google Uploader for Mac

For some, there is quite a bit of anxiety involved in switching from one email system to another. What will become of all your old emails from family/friends, your precious email attachments containing hundreds of hours of video featuring LOLCats, or the 400 copies of that one chain letter your partially senile grandfather forwards you every two weeks? Well, it looks like if you’re a Mac user ready to jump over to Google Apps, there is no need to panic, because the Big G is looking to alleviate this anxiety for you. Recently, Google released a migration tool that will allow users of Apple Mail, Thunderbird, or Eudora to upload all their email to Google Apps and seamlessly make the switch. The tool, which already has a Windows counterpart, will only work with Google Apps and not with the more popular gmail.com or googlemail.com services. Hit up the official press release for all the details. More →
