Do you use Flickr ?
« on: November 01, 2018, 02:17:04 PM »
Not sure if this was a wise move from Flickr, I'm sure it's going to upset many of its users. 

They have announced that free accounts will now be limited to 1000 photos, so I'm guessing if you have more photos than that you'll soon be forced to either pay the $50 per year, or remove images.

They should 'grandfather' in existing users who have more than 1000 images.

Not sure how this is going to be handled yet, I'll have to read up.  A lot of people complaining already.

1000 photos is not that much but 1000 good photos or even excellent photos is quite challenging.

Good point.  O0

When taking photo's I usually take 10-20 shots hoping for that one good pix out of all of those tries.

Tis a good point.  I've been out taken a hundred shots and maybe had a couple of keepers from that session.  I have learnt to be ruthless when it comes to getting rid of photos, I mean if I'm not going to use it, or look at it again what's the point of it using hard drive space, delete them.

With a modern camera you can soon fill a hard drive.

To be honest, I think it's a bit extreme now they are doubling the price of a  pro account which atm is $24.99 and going up to $49.99

Depends on how much it costs them, remember as we now can take higher resolution images easier than ever before from our phones, that's not including DSLR's and the like.

There is also more of a push in policing what is posted and people complaining about it. Along with numerous other things, its getting more expensive all the time with new laws and in general how aware everyone is becoming about the internet and what information everyone has on you.

It wouldn't surpise me if this additional cost is part of the reason they are changing their policies, along with trying to create more revenue.
