I wondered what change in ownership (earlier this year from Yahoo to SmugMug) might mean for Flickr and today noticed they are rejigging their free/pro user levels. Free users will soon be limited 1,000 photos, a few less than the 25,000 I have added there since 2005…
I had Pro membership free for years, via an historic Telecom/Spark NZ Yahoo link, but reverted to free a couple years ago when they parted ways. The big advantage of Flickr, back in the day, was unlimited full resolution storage of photos when most other cloud services reduced resolution (like some still do), had low limits, or both (ironic eh!).
I’ll revive my Pro membership (us$50 – 30% first year), mainly as I have lots of Flickr images linked to my blog!
