Flickr Collections

Flickr’s new ‘Collections’ feature was released yesterday. It enables sets of sets, an option that some people have spent literally years asking for. It’s a neat little system, completely controlled from the impressive Organizr. Aside from the five possible levels of nesting, it lets you create a mosaic from images within the collection and displays this as the collection logo. I’ve set up a few here, and I think I was first to report a bug involving gaps appearing in collection names exceeding 15 letters. Ahem. The only downer is that you can’t currently display both collections and sets on your (newly grey) home page sidebar.

They’ve also added the option to display 5 large images on your home page, rather than 19 smaller versions. I rather like it.
