After a long time, I only start my own flickr account.

Usually I not really into Yahoo product like Yahoo Messenger, Yahoo Mail!, and Yahoo Search…. but this is an exception.

Used to be created by Ludicorp, a Vancouver based company and later been acquired by Yahoo for $35 million.

flickr has become a world recognition by most photographers as their online platform. Providing a high quality and clear definition of picture uploading service.

Well, to be honest, I am into flickr just because my pictures turns bad after uploading into Facebook. The picture lost details and noise shot up.

Still keep Facebook but flickr will be another primary platform.

Only one thing I have to mention ’bout flickr:

Flickr offers two types of accounts: Free and Pro. Free account users are allowed to upload 300 MB of images a month and 2 videos. Also, if a free user has more than 200 photos on the site, they will only be able to see the most recent 200 in their photostream. The other photos that were uploaded are still stored on the site and links to these images in blog posts remain active. Free users can also contribute to a maximum of 10 photo pools. If a free account is inactive for 90 consecutive days, Flickr reserves the right to delete it. For a free account, no one (including the account owner) can access the original file. If the account is upgraded to a pro account, then the original files are available for download.

Pro accounts allow users to upload an unlimited number of images and videos every month and receive unlimited bandwidth and storage. Photos may be placed in up to 60 group pools, and Pro account users receive ad-free browsing and have access to account statistics. As soon as a Pro account expires, it reverts back to the restrictions of a free account, including Flickr reserving the right to delete an account that is “inactive for 90 consecutive days”.Unfortunately Flickr may delete a Pro account without giving any reason nor warning to the account’s owner.
