Deciding on upgrading to Flickr Pro


For the past 12 years I have uploaded my Second Life journey on Flickr and I have enjoyed sharing my adventures with everyone. Since then I have uploaded a huge 26. 803 photos (269 pages) in total to date with over 1, 500 followers.

As many know already Flickr made big changes to the service recently and I’m still deciding on what to do going forward.

Important dates

January 8, 2019: Free accounts will be limited to 1,000 photos and videos. Free accounts with more than 1,000 items will no longer be able to upload new photos or videos.

February 5, 2019: Any items over the 1,000-upload limit will be at risk of deletion, starting with the oldest of the items. Photos licensed through Creative Commons before November 1, 2018 will not be deleted, even for accounts over the 1,000 limit.

I have downloaded my Flickr data today just in case which backs up all photos, videos, account preferences, profile information and everything else. In a month’s time my Flickr photos will be at risk of deletion. I was on Flickr Pro for a few years or so then went down to using the free version of it.

You can use this tool to download the information that Flickr has about your account, including account preferences, profile information, and your photos and videos. This process will take some time, so we’ll send you an email when it’s ready for you to download.

Is it really worth upgrading to Flickr Pro ?

Or should I go else where to upload photos from Second Life etc ?
