Flickr is set to get a makeover as its CEO Marissa Mayer is planning a major overhaul of the website to make it relevant again.

Insisting that the company wants to make the social media website "awesome again," Mayer suggested a slick redesign and a terabyte of photo storage for every user which will allow the site to store more than 500,000 photos, reported CNET.

The move marked the beginning of Flickr's attempts at a turnaround since Mayer became the CEO in 2012. She also put Bernardo Hernandez , a 43 year old former Googler and native of Spain, in charge of the site shortly she announced her decision to redesign the website.

Hernandez has said that the overhaul will happen in about a year and will include a string of product updates. However, he refused to give specific details of the plan.
