For years now, Flickr has been the go-to destination for people that want to share their photography skills with like-minded individuals. Today, the company announced a few big changes in an effort to make sure Flickr is around to thrive for many more years to come.
The biggest announcement is that people that use Flickr for free will be limited to just 1,000 photos and videos starting on January 8, 2019. This change comes as part of Flickr's recent acquisition by SmugMug that's correcting Yahoo's decision to give everyone 1TB of storage at no cost.
Per Flickr's blog post:
Flickr Pro will continue to cost $49.99, and in addition to unlimited storage, ad-free browsing, and advanced stats, you'll also now also get priority support, up to 10-minute video uploads, 5K photo uploads, increased exposure for your pictures, more detailed stats on mobile, and extra partner discounts.
If you're a free user and currently have more than 1,000 uploads on Flickr, you can upgrade to Pro for 30% off your first year.
Lastly, Flickr also says it's making its log-in process easier and removing the requirement to have a Yahoo account.
