Flickr has announced a new feature enabling users to embed photos and videos from its platform directly onto websites, blogs or articles. The feature is already offered by other leading photo and video sharing services, which have long allowed users to embed content on their websites by copying and pasting a line of code.

Flickr instructs users on how to take advantage of the new feature: "click on the share button, browse to < />, choose your embed size, and copy the code." There are around ten different embed sizes to choose from.

Images embedded this way are displayed with their title and with the name/username of the user who uploaded them. Of course, the new service only works with photos that have been shared publicly.

Flickr has undergone a number of major changes in recent months. In a bid to encourage users to upload high-definition photos, the site now offers users a massive 1TB of free photo storage. This translates into 537,731 photos at 6.5MP resolution or 1.1 million at 3MP. Flickr also still enables users to upload videos of up to 3min in HD (1080p).
