I just upgraded my flickr account to a pro account! I have been meaning to get around to doing this for a while now but just forgot about it!
Flickr only allows you to upload 200 photos if you have a standard free account, you can actually upload more than 200, however flickr will only show your latest 200 uploaded.
I ran into this problem when I returned from Edinburgh last summer, I added all my pictures to flickr and then I could only see a few of them.
It is great to have the flickr pro account as this means there is no more restrictions on my account 😀 . For the pro membership it is a yearly cost of $24.05 which is about €16, not exactly breaking the bank with that membership as it is completely worth it.
This is the first time I have paid for hosting of my pictures but it is completely worth it also now I have the ability to upload HD videos to flickr! Not that I will be using this feature, it is always nice to have something extra 😉 .
Now that I have the pro account it helps out here on this blog, I have a section on my blog, now all my flickr photo sets / album’s can be seen here too! As soon as I upload them to flickr they will all be right here on this blog. This feature has been on my blog for a while now however with the old limitations of my standard account for a few months visitors could only see a few of my pictures 🙁 .
I will most likely begin to use flickr to store some pictures for some of my websites, this will save bandwidth on my end and also the images will load quicker as they are coming from a much better server!
