No AKB48 hasn't gotten 4,682 new members and it hasn't changed it's name. AKB4800 is a collaboration between AKB48 and media storage company Verbatim. Most of you will know Verbatim as those blank CDs and DVDs that you buy to store your AKB vids and other stuff. Verbatim will be hosting pictures of the members which will be available for download. FOR FREE! While post of the pictures are your usual photoshoots, there are also pictures from the members childhood, youth and private life. There are also lots of LOL pics for us to LOL at. The total number of pics to download is, obviously hence the name, 4800. Also included are special photos of certain members. Luckily both Amina and Sayaka are included. Be warned. These photos are a total killer. Amina's special photo is 4547 X 10039 pixels. Yes you read that right. The normal pictures are 1280 X 960
The pictures are neatly arranged for us according to members and are then further arranged into various folders. Now these pictures are insanely large and high quality. The best part? One picture is only few hundred KB. That's insanely small! The total space for all 4800 pics is only 824MB. Now thats what I call awesome. Good news for those people with shitty computers which do not have enough space for regular sized photos(like me). Seriously this has got to be the most awesome news since I joined the AKB fandom.

To download, just find the folder of the member whose pictures you want to download. Blue folders will lead to more subfolders and orange folders are where the pictures are. Then all you have to do is click the big download button and there you go. The rainbow folders will have to be unlocked by beating some games inside the website.
Here are the links for Amina's and Sayaka's pictures, credits to STAGE48's flippin'patty.
