Sees WebP as worthy replacement for JPEG, PNG and GIF formats
Undeterred by resistance from some of its rivals in the browser world, the Mountain View, California-based Internet giant blithely continues to push its WebP image format as a possible replacement for existing file formats like JPEG, PNG and GIF. The company is currently busy rolling out the format across its many web properties and claims to have already “raised our aggregate data transfer savings tally to tens of terabytes every day” in the process.
An end-around solution to storing common files in Flickr.
In the process of overhauling Flickr, Yahoo announced that photographers would be allowed to upload up to 1TB of photos and videos for free, the only restrictions being the size of each individual file (200MB for photos and 1GB for 1080p videos) and length of clips (up to 3 minutes long). Other than those caveats, it's a generous storage container that's big enough to hold half a million photos shot at 6.5 megapixels. But what if you could also upload common files? There's a way you can do that.
