flickr: 1 free terabyte and new look.

35 posts in this topic

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.

No catch it seems, all my photos from when I had pro have returned

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.

Apparently I have been with Flickr since 2006 and I am using 1% of 1TB

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.

Nice, i might actually try it out.

Says i've been a member since 2005, and have like 50 pictures, but this is all from the merge of yahoo photos to flickr.

Really hard to avoid the 1tb free, but then again the way Yahoo is dying lately makes me hesitant.

Maybe they'll be bought up by Google or Microsoft and flickr will be fine :D

I don't think flickr will die, its been around for a long time and its got probably millions of members. Google would buy it out probably.

Not unless they buy Yahoo which would probably cause some (more) monopoly issues...

Yahoo isn't dying, Yahoo is moving away from made them Yahoo. They know they can't really compete with Google and Bing on search so they turn to Social Networking, they buy Tumblr which is a massive audience and they made Flickr into the one stop shop for sharing and uploading Hi-Res uncompressed files.

It's a good movie, hopefully one that drives Google and MS to offer more on their cloud packages

Sort of shooting themselves in the foot though. I think google are trying to (in quite a tangent) trying to compete with sites such as flickr in a different way. Ya know, with their new online editing abilities and the gallery features on google+.
