Flickr starts culling users’ photos

Photo-sharing website Flickr is starting to delete users’ photos after changing its terms and conditions.

The firm announced in November that it would no longer be allowing its members one terabyte of free storage.

Under the new rules, there is a limit of 1,000 photographs for those who do not subscribe to the service at a cost of $49.99 (£38) per year.

One terabyte would store around 200,000 photos with an average size of 5MB.

Flickr was acquired by another photo platform called SmugMug in April 2018. The price it paid to former owner Verizon was not disclosed.

In a blog in November announcing the changes, Flickr said that “storing tens of billions of Flickr members’ photos is staggeringly expensive”.

It also said by introducing the free storage in 2013, Flickr’s original owner Yahoo had “lost sight of what made Flickr truly special” as new users were attracted by the storage rather than the photography.

“Making storage free had the unfortunate effect of signalling to an entire generation of Flickr members that storage – and even Flickr itself – isn’t worth paying for,” it wrote.

SmugMug has never offered a free service for its platform.

Tech websites have been sharing the best ways to archive photos before they disappear for those who do not wish to pay for the premium service.

Users can either download their images in batches of 500 via the camera roll, or make a request to Flickr for all their data – this will include other data such as comments and any GPS data, writes Barbara Krasnoff at the Verge.

Some Flickr members have expressed disappointment on social media, while others noted that the $50 annual fee did not feel unreasonable for the considerable storage space.

  1. Oh my goodness! Impressive article dude! Thanks,
    However I am having issues with your RSS.
    I don’t understand the reason why I cannot join it.

    Is there anybody having the same RSS issues? Anybody who knows the
    solution will you kindly respond? Thanks!!

  2. I think everything said was actually very logical.
    But, think on this, suppose you were to create a killer
    headline? I am not suggesting your content isn’t good., but what
    if you added a title that grabbed folk’s attention? I mean Flickr starts culling
    users' photos – globalnewnews.com । English । globalnewnews.com is kinda plain. You should glance at Yahoo’s home
    page and note how they create article titles to
    get people to open the links. You might try adding a video or
    a picture or two to grab people interested about what you’ve
    got to say. In my opinion, it would bring your posts a little livelier.

  6. Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it
    to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She
    put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!

  7. After I originally commented I seem to have clicked on the -Notify me
    when new comments are added- checkbox and now every time a
    comment is added I get four emails with the exact same comment.
