We've been working hard with the TinyPic crew over the last several months, and it's really paid off. We've seen more uploads, more browsing, more sharing, and had a great time seeing it all unfold. Today, TinyPic has launched their new Categories feature, an updated way to browse for images and videos.
The homepage saw the most changes with this push. We removed Featured Images & Videos in favor of Featured Categories and added a new Categories tab to the main navigation. Categories will be a nice addition to searching for images and videos on TinyPic, providing better SEO and showing the wide variety of content TinyPic has to offer.
What's really cool is that for each category, we have a featured image to represent it. Note the little magnifying glass in the bottom right. Clicking that will take you to the full size view of that image, but clicking anywhere else on the image will take you to that category. It's a neat little UI feature that we've taken from the TinyPic Plugin we've been working on.
The other changes are the most obvious: Categories and sub-categories. We've gone only one level deep here to keep things as simple as we can. For instance, you want to find People, and we've got that and more: Kate Beckinsale, Michael Phelps, and more.
Go forth and browse Categories!
