Hi, My ibook's hard drive is full. I have 15 GB with pics, and 24 GB with video. I am thinking about getting an external hard drive. However, Flickr offers the possibillity of unlimited storage for $24.95 Their advertisement reads as follows: Here's what you get... Unlimited uploads and storage Unlimited sets and collections Access to your original files Stats on your account Ad-free browsing and sharing HD playback for high-definition video uploads NEW Given that I have never used flickr, (and that I hear that everybody is using it ; ) !!!), I would like to ask you a few questions about it: If I get this account, I would upload and store the 15 GB of pics, and the 24 GB with video. As soon as I have uploaded them, I would erase those almost 40 GB of pictures and video from my hard drive, freeing up 40 GB of space !!! Now, suppose i want to download from flickr at any given time any of those pictures, just to see them or to work on them. Is it possible ?? Or, let's say, I buy a hard drive in a year from now, and I want to have all my pictures and videos back in it. Is it possible to download all of them? Does flickr has a right to keep copies for itself? Is it possible to play the uploaded videos? Can one keep different folders, and choose privacy settings? Are you using, or do you suggest any other alternatives to this $24.95 yearly package?? Perhaps an external hard drive?? In advance, thank you very much : ) !!! Very kind regards, igmolinav.
