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.
