    Thanks Paul, that seem to be a useful Flickr alternative (for now :cautious:).

    I felt exactly the same, together with constant requests for monies I deleted my account.
    Looks like YouTube are about to do the same.

    This is me too. WordPress only gives 3GB of free storage on basic plans so I relied on Flikr for storing my used photos. I have to go through and delete 200 at this point which is probably okay as I find I only use about half of the photos I've uploaded in the end.

    Has anyone done the upgrade?

    No, I went through and deleted all the photos I don't use for my blog since that is all I used Flikr for. Since I have four Yahoo email accounts I will just log in under another one and open a new Flikr account

    Sneaky :)
    I was quite pleased when I used IMGBB, suggested by Paul, above. There's no guarantee they won't go the same route, though.

    Does Google charge for photo storage? Reading some of the posts on the Flickr forums they quote Google at $100 for 2TB, Apple $120 and DropBox $150

    Not sure I can be bothered moving again, the last fiasco from Photobucket was bad enough.

    I'm not moving, I like Flickr and will upgrade. The new owners aren't mega powerful corporate giants like Verizon and Yahoo etc, but a family business with an interest in photography. FWIW, I think it's a good move and should improve the site. Lots of people stopped using Flickr when they went free, as folk were using it as a free backup and the average quality of photos suffered.

    They are still committed to allowing 1000 photos to be stored for free, with no quality limits. I don't think it's too shabby TBH. Unlimited jpeg storage for $50/year seems pretty reasonable to me.

    I get three options, Flickr Free, Annual Plan or Monthly Plan

    Clicking on Annual takes me to the payment page

    When's the switch off date again, is it Jan 1st?
