Facebook has just rolled out some really cool features to enhance the photo experience, now users can upload and view photos in a high-resolution format and can be viewed full screen. Earlier Facebook would down-size the resolution of the uploaded images for easy viewing which causes stripping the images of all their intricate details. Photographers just hate uploading images to Facebook, but its going to change now.

After the launch of Goolge+ which seems to be a hit among the photographers, as it allowed to upload and view high-resolution photos. Following that path, Facebook just reworked their photo experience, users can now upload images with resolutions up to 2048 pixels. The photo viewer now will automatically display photos in the highest resolution possible. On a large display, this can be up to 4 times bigger than before. Users using the latest version of Firefox or Chrome can click the arrows at the top-right corner of a photo to expand to full screen. This will also hide the comment bars and show only the image on the screen, which seems to be odd.

The new feature seems to be rolled out to most of the users, it just seems to be much better photo experience for users. Only problem is that the new photo viewer is available to Firefox and Chrome browser, not for other browsers.
