[Official Thread] Ongoing improvements & updates to Free & Pro plans

Flickr Staff

Don-MacAskill says:

Hi all,

Today we announced important changes to Flickr’s Pro and Free accounts. I also posted an update on all of the wonderful improvements we’ve been hard at work building. I know this is a lot of change to take in, and we blogged about why we’ve made some of these important decisions. These updates allow us to focus on Flickr’s strengths as the world’s largest photographer-focused community where you can discover and connect with the best photography and photographers on the planet.

These changes are significant and important to the future of Flickr, so I’m here to discuss them and answer questions where I can. I believe it’s important that the community understands where we’re coming from and how hard we’re working to build amazing things for photographers using Flickr. I believe this is the right path forward to build a bright, exciting, sustainable future for Flickr and ensure the platform can continue to shape the world of photography for years to come.

The Changes

New Simple Login!
Coming in January, there will be no need for a Yahoo account to use Flickr. Login is the number one complaint we receive through our Help Center, so we’re happy to free you to use any email you prefer to access Flickr.

Flickr Pro Accounts
Flickr Pro is better than ever. At less than half the cost of Apple, Amazon, or Google, it’s the best deal in photography — hands down. In addition to access to the world's largest photography-focused community, Pros receive these perks:

Unlimited Photos
All Pros may now upload as many full resolution photos as you can take. As always, photos can be up to 200 megabytes each, and videos can be up to 1 gigabyte.

Ad-Free Browsing.
Focus on what matters with a fully ad-free Flickr experience for you and your visitors.

Advanced Stats. See which of your photos are trending now, and which have performed the best over the life of your Flickr Pro account.

These are the new Pro-only features:

Premier Product Support.
Flickr Pros now receive priority assistance from our new world-class support team. You’ll go right to the front of the line when you need us at the Flickr Help Center.

More Partner Discounts.
We’ll be rolling out a suite of new discounts from our partners, including Creative Cloud from Adobe, 50% off a custom portfolio site on SmugMug, gear from Peak Design, and more. Be sure to check your Account Settings for all the perks available to you.Coming November

Advanced Stats on Mobile.
You’ll be able to track stats on your photos and your account for the first time from the Flickr apps. Coming November

Increased Exposure.
All Pro members as of January 1, 2019, are eligible for priority exposure in the next iteration of Explore. Coming early 2019.

New 5K Photo Display Option.
Your images will be beautifully optimized for any screen with display at resolutions up to 5K. Coming early 2019

10-Minute Videos.
Pros will be able to play back videos for up to 10 minutes, far more than the standard 3 that comes with free accounts.Coming early 2019

Learn more about Flickr Pro.

Flickr Free Accounts
Flickr Free members are essential to a vibrant, healthy Flickr. So we are determined to provide a free tier that allows anyone who is unable or unwilling to pay for Flickr Pro to meaningfully participate in, and contribute to, the Flickr community. Free accounts on Flickr are now for sharing and displaying your 1,000 best photos and videos.

If you fall in love with photography and Flickr, and want to store and share more photos, we ask you to upgrade to Flickr Pro, which gives you an unlimited number. To make this easier, now through the end of November we’re offering you 30% off your first year of Flickr Pro. This is without question the best deal in photography.

Free members with more than 1,000 photos and/or videos uploaded to Flickr have until Tuesday, January 8, 2019, to upgrade to Pro or download content over that limit. After January 8, 2019, members over the limit will no longer be able to upload new photos to Flickr. After February 5, 2019, Free accounts that contain over 1,000 photos and/or videos will have content actively deleted—starting from oldest to newest date uploaded—to meet the new limit.

* RICHARD M (Over 8.5 MILLION VIEWS) says:

Yesterday, I made a comment referring to the losing of past 'community spirit'' here @ Flickr. Why? Because I and other contacts of mine are having problems seeing each others' comments/communications. Obviously, that makes us think that others have lost interest in us and/or our photos.

Am I being silenced for pointing out the truth? Is giving honest feedback no longer an acceptable thing to do?

Your complaints are valid, your concerns are understandable, we all hope that Flickr is listening, but this kind of conspiracy-theory-like speculation seems a little unwarranted and absurd.

Where were you silenced? Was your earlier comment removed?

I'm not going to pay yet another monthly fee. I enjoyed flickr but I'd rather leave than pay. Very disappointing though.

Advanced Stats: It would be helpful if Pro subscribers could get stats on each album separately as well as on their photostream as a whole.

Hello! I am happy that the video Service is (almost) up and working again! Videos that I uploaded during this downtime never finished the "progressing state", but I deleted those and uploaded those again..and it is working again...yay!

IMPROVEMENT idea: please make the stats more specific, I'd love to see the country of visitors..
also more specific stats of operating system/browser/android version etc... but at least the country, it is pretty basic information in other services.. ;)

Is there any development yet in Flickr's undertaking to revamp the EXPLORE feature? We stll see countless examples of buses, lego sculptures and many of these are repeatedly produced by the same member (pro and non-pro)

Michael Anthony's Photography says:

I never thought I say this but bring back yahoo!!!!!!!! At least I could open my photos and favs. I've been out for weeks now. They say Flickr is better than ever??? I beg to differ. Will I get a rebate prorated for the time I can only use part of my photo stream? So far double the price and half the service. What a bargain!

Are you using Internet Explorer 11? This browser is no longer supported by Flickr. Many people who are using IE11 have reported what sounds like exactly like you are saying here. Staff have made an official comment about it here:
