I’ve just renewed my Flickr ‘Pro’ account for the first time in two years, as I was lucky enough to be given a free year when they were bought by Yahoo. I currently have 2,722 photos stored, and use the site on a daily basis. In the two years they’ve upgraded their site considerably with insignificant downtime, and have improved their data plans: I can now store unlimited photos with no constraints on monthly uploads. And all for $25/£13ish a year. With the possible exception of Google’s free Gmail, for me Flickr is the best value for money of any online service. I can’t begrudge them $25, in fact I’m more than happy to pay it.
