How are you guys liking it. I actually love it. I do have one complaint with the layout though and perhaps I over looked it but I can't see the page where it allows you to see comments and favorites of your photos. Other than that I'm liking it a lot.

What's the catch? :s

Upload limits? How are they making money now? Do they still have premium options? :huh:

Only a tiny minority will ever come close to using that much space, yet it makes a very compelling advertising point. I've never really use Flickr before but the layout looks decent. Strangely the sign-up page makes full use of my horizontal resolution (my desktop is 2560x1600) yet the actual layout doesn't, which seems strange.

I went to take a look...then I realised that I've never used flickr so I don't know how the layout is different. :laugh:

1TB for free is pretty impressive, though. 200,000+ photos at 16MP. :omg:

I upload all the time and it sucked that my old photos were deleted (not really just weren't shown because I didn't have a pro membership) but now with that new terabyte limit they are back, so I don't have to fear losing any of my uploads any time soon.

I just checked all my scanned photos and digital snapshots... only 25GB. That said, I know my brother subscribes to Flickr and he has several hundred GBs of photos in RAW format, so it will definitely be useful for him. In fact I grabbed a folder of photos off him the other day and it was 28GB alone.

I only upload the best of my photos because I share them in groups and try to get as many views and comments as I can. If I put every photo on flickr id be maxed out easily.

Well, I think they're pushing the idea of uploading images full res.

Also, is there any sort of option to create private sets? If so, you can probably at least create a jpg backup of your library. I could backup my whole photo library in NEF 12MP and still have 90% of the space left. Problem being, it would probably take about 2 weeks to upload even that for me!

Yeah they are, before you had to have a pro membership to get access to full res pictures. Yeah you can create private sets I believe, I don't though I just upload them to my photostream and that's it. To lazy to organize them all lol.
