"Free" services are rarely free for users. Users pay with their dates or their time. We prefer that the agreement is transparent, "the company said in a press release. Free-tier users can now upload 1,000 photos or videos, regardless of size. You no longer get 1TB of free storage for your content.
Flickr Pro now offers ad-free browsing, advanced statistics, new 5K photo size, increased video playback time, and more. Subscribers also receive additional discounts for partners, including Adobe Creative Cloud. It costs $ 49.99 a year. Users upgrading to Pro before November 30 will receive a 30% discount on the first year.
