From the Flickr Blog comes the good news that Flickr is resurrecting the Flickr Pro membership plan with some very nice features. Flickr users already get unlimited free storage for their photos and videos so why would you spend $5.99/month or $49.99/year for Flickr Pro? Let’s see . . .
- No-ad viewing – not only of your own photos but throughout all of Flickr.
- Some very impressive stats showing which of your photos, albums, collections and galleries are attracting the most viewers – and more.
- Free standard U.S. shipping on Flickr merchandise like photo books, photo mounts and canvas-wrapped prints with a minimum $25 order. There’s also 50% off on international shipping.
- If you are an annual subscriber, you’ll also get 20% off on Adobe’s Creative Cloud Photography plan. This plan includes Lightroom and Photoshop along with editing apps for iOS and Android devices and normally costs $9.99/mo.
If you are already a Pro user from the older version, you are grand-fathered in at the original annual price for two years.
If all you want is a great off-site archive for your treasured photos, Flickr Pro may not be for you. On the other hand, if you enjoy displaying your photos and browsing others, want to see which pictures are attracting the most attention and maybe create a photo book or two, this could be a great deal.
