PSA Here's a way to view part of Flickr in the old layout

If you love the new Flickr Photostream view of your photos, then no need to read the rest of this message, but if you are mourning the old interface with the white background, here's how to get it back -- but only for your own Photostream, unfortunately.

If you click on You and then Photostream, your photos appear in the wall-to-wall mosaic. Click on Edit and you are back in the old familiar view. It also loads just one page at a time, which is so much better for speedy access, especially if you want to jump back a few weeks.

I had seen the Edit option, but assumed that it took you to a photoediting page, so I didn't try it, but fortunately one of my Flickr friends did and passed on the good news. :)
