    Have the flickr users on this forum seen this update? https://www.flickr.com/lookingahead/

    Pro: $50 per year
    Free: New limit of 1000 photos.


    Free members with more than 1,000 photos or videos uploaded to Flickr have until Tuesday, January 8, 2019, to upgrade to Pro or download content over the limit. After January 8, 2019, members over the limit will no longer be able to upload new photos to Flickr. After February 5, 2019, free accounts that contain over 1,000 photos or videos will have content actively deleted -- starting from oldest to newest date uploaded -- to meet the new limit.

    Read the headline, headed over to flickr to see how many pictures I had stored; 81.
    I think I'm good ;)

    well damn. I put up a lot of vacation photos to Disney and others and racked up 1500 photos throughout my time on it. I guess I need to purge.

    and funny, I think people started to abandon Flickr recently. I can't see this helping. I also see I was only using less than 5% of my 1TB limit.

    I have 3,129 so I guess I need to trim this a bit. I was actually a Pro user on Flickr so perhaps I'll keep it and see if I like enough to keep under the new co.

    On the bright side. Yahoo email won’t be needed anymore.

    Yeah, I'm hoping the 5k display, lack of Yahoo, and unlimited storage will keep me there. I still like it. And having futzed with Apple, Google, Dropbox, Amazon and others I have to say I still prefer a dedicated photo site, even though the others are each useful in their own way.

    The up and comer for me, though, is Adobe. I could use Porfolio for my best stuff, and then just unlimited uploaded smart previews for sharing. And with Portfolio you can have your own personal domain name point to it.

    I have flicker pro account and have had it for 5 or so years. But at $ 50ma year it got me rethinking if I will renew. But I may be trapped I have over 9000 photos there and many family albums going back 70 years.

    Is there a way to port photos from Flickr to Smugmug?
