Now why and when did the upload bandwidth counter die for Flickr PRO users? This thread on the Flickr Central forum just made me aware of this surprising, brouhaha-less fact from this smart Yahoo-acquired photo-sharing service.
For $24.95 (PHP1,200++) a year, a PRO account is entitled to:
-Permanent archiving of high-resolution original images
-The ability to replace a photo
-Ad-free browsing and sharing
Last time I checked, there was a 2GB bandwidth upload limit for PRO accounts, and ads may still be shown on your stream.
This news is a pretty intense kick in the arse for people justifying that Zoomr seems to be a worthy alternative. Now, if only Flickr had a referral ticket for breaking this news out, and for PRO user signups.
…the two gigabyte monthly limit is no more (yep, pro users have no limits on how many photos they can upload)! At the same time, we’ve upped the limit for free account members as well, from 20MB per month up to 100MB (yep, five times more)!
And a Merry Christmas to you, too, Flickr!
