The new 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.

A better, brighter Flickr – Flickr Blog

This is a pretty aggressive move away from the paid ‘Pro’ accounts and into Dropbox / Google Drive territory, so it’ll be interesting to see how they respond. Out of curiosity I looked up how much a TB of storage would cost on AWS S3 and it came out at $97/mo just for storage.

I’ve been on Flickr since 2005 but left my account dormant for years. This seems like a good time to come back.
