A better, brighter Flickr

Biggr. A free terabyte of space

At Flickr, we believe you should share all your images in full resolution, so life's moments can be relived in their original quality. No limited pixels, no cramped formats, no memories that fall flat. We're giving your photos room to breathe, and you the space to upload a dizzying number of photos and videos, for free. Just how big is a terabyte? Well, you could take a photo every hour for forty years without filling one.

And yep, you heard us. It's free.


Now we're talking. ;)
At 1TB most can finally have enough space to archive their collections online. If all your photos are on Yahoo then you might be tempted to use their other services.

lol, so much they should have done so long ago. I wonder if they'll be able to pull all this "new" Yahoo stuff off.

This is too little too late. I'm a fan of Flickr, but they could have been instagram 3 years ago if they wanted. They didn't seem to have a vision.

Yahoo needs to do exactly what Google learned years ago: they have to start re-branding and re-working the products they acquire to work with their other products.

Let's see, they were a photo storage site. Now they're a MORE photo storage site. Wow, the innovation boggles the mind.

Inquiring minds want to know: What's in it for them?

More importantly, when they decide to end Flickr, everything comes to an end. How the heck to they plan on giving customers those 1TB stores? 10+ DVDs? Assuming anyone has a DVD reader anymore as personal physical storage has gone the way of the DoDo Bird in favor of cloud storage. Soon nobody will have a copy of anything and then a FaceBook or Flickr goes offline the loss is going to be incredible.

Maybe I'm the only one - but I'm still in favour of personal storage, I use the cloud but very selectively.

Storage for YOUR photos or scraper storage of OUR photos?

If people can view full high res photos then presumably they can download them too so does that mean anyone who uploads their hi res photos to Flikr is essentially giving them away?

If you are shooting raw files a TB can go pretty fast.

I stay out of the *clouds and keep my feet on the ground .. Storing "my stuff" on someone elses server just doesn't sit real well with me.

Trust issues I think .. Or .. I own my own stuff .. take your pick.

Yahoo isn't the only company out there that's done stupid things .. I can recall multitudes of stupid things that Google has done over the years and they aren't even as old as Yahoo is ..

All in all, I still view Yahoo as something that might mean something .. I mean, C'Mon .. The fact that Yahoo is still out there wandering around the pasture like Google and Microsoft can say quite a bit when you consider it's history.

Combine Google Glass with Flickr and you could save everything you do throughout your life.

Would people upload raw file format images to Flickr - I expect they would upload a JPEG, I know I do. It can still be a hefty 10mb image.

I doubt anyone would upload raw file format images unless they were making the images available for others to work upon or they were storing a back up for their own convenience.
