There are limits for weekly uploads (IIRC 30 image/week on a free account).Since I'm too lazy to look, does anyone know if there are there any restrictions on 500px?
Surely this is just going to get people opening multiple flickr accounts, I already have two, I don't think either is close to 1000 photos but life might actually be simpler if I had 4 or 5 accounts instead of using albums
I'm tending toward that view too ... .75p a week and less for the first year,Where else can you get an image hosting site with all the useful facilities of Flickr? If I wasn't already a Pro member, I'd be signing up now.
In the past it's been so neglected by its owners that I've looked around for a better site to move to. Or even one just as good. Never found one.
Looks like at last it's going to start improving again.
Depends what you use it for I guess, linking to forums, storage, new 'Pro' account also useful for some commercial use.What is so useful? The only thing I can see is the automatic resizing which is a +/- kind of thing...
I use it for file sharing, both here and for local stuff/friends/family. That's why having multiple accounts might be better, so I can split off family pictures, local stuff etc from the more serious landscape work.A mystery to me why anyone would want 1,000 photos on Flickr. For storage? Home storage is easy and cheap. For people to look at? Surely no-one is going to scroll through 1,000 images. As a free image library? Why should that be free?
There must be ways of using Flickr that I haven't thought of. So how does each of you use Flickr?
Thanks, Mr B.Just as a hosting site so I can link photos
Thanks, Steven.General sharing (forums/etc) and for off-site backup...
It probably is.I use it to up my own personal fav images, it's like a record of my shooting, it's probably the easiest image site to use for this purpose.
Thanks, Toni. And that sounds like a good scheme - unless they manaage to make multiple accounts 'illegal' ...I use it for file sharing, both here and for local stuff/friends/family. That's why having multiple accounts might be better, so I can split off family pictures, local stuff etc from the more serious landscape work.
