    G'day mate

    I'm staying 'pro' as I dislike advertising getting in the way of the real stuff

    Nope I changed to free, I don't mind putting up with the advertising as I really never notice anyway to be honest, I think my subconcious blocks it out, and 1 Terabyte is more than enough, I'll take the money and run thanks!

    I was thinking about this some more more and so I went to flickr to see if I could actually see any ads and I couldn't, perhaps Flickr hasn't implemented their 'advertising' yet but I couldn't see anything in my quick look. Does anyone with a free account know what ads the 'free' people have to put up with? I was just thinking that many people have said they are still paying purely because they don't want ads and perhaps there isn't that much difference, of course Flickr may start increasing the use of ads (or start if they haven't actually started this yet) in which case the free people, like me, are at the mercy of whatever Flickr want to do.

    I use FF and have a pretty good ad-blocker.
    Though I don't use flickr (yet).

    Not worried about getting out later ... just thinking about the redesign that hasn't really made much difference to me other than slowing down the loading of the main page. Hopefully it's a work in progress and things will get better. Otherwise I'll consider spending my money at Smugmug instead.

    I've stayed pro atm. Hoping that they actually turn around and expand the functions that pro's get. Other than seeing how many people look at my photos, I'm not really getting anything out of it since the change..

    (I do wish we could change our photostream...)

    I doubt that will happen as the pro account is grandfathered (i.e. not offered anymore) so why would they put any effort in to giving those on an old plans any extra features, they want people to move across to the new plans.

    I ditched Pro and so far haven't seen any adverts - at least not noticed any?? Only thing I miss is the Statistics that used to come with Pro.
    I am in the process of uploading all my photos as another form of backup - using the resize to make pics only 2048px so will never use the 1Tb I reckon.
    I didn't like the new layout at first but have grown to like it - it's so much easier to quickly view pics in a set now just scrolling through multiple images rather than viewing them 1 by 1.

    Yes.

    Both actually. I have my 'usual' account which I had renewed not long before the change, so I'll keep it for the time being. I don't use it a lot, mainly for linking elsewhere.

    I also have another account that I set up for sharing sport photos but hadn't used for a while because I didn't like the presentation aspect of it. However, prior to the flickr changes I was intending to start using it again and needed to upgrade to "pro" because of the previous file limitations, but I hadn't got around to upgrading. The changes to flickr actually make it better for this purpose - less restrictions on the number of files and also a better presentation mode for non-flickr users. Having said that, I'm now looking at using Dropbox for sharing as it seems to be a lot simpler to maintain and use for what I want.



    Cheers.
    Phil.
