Sick and tired of Instagram? Maybe you should go back and check that Flickr account that you’ve abandoned oh so many months ago Especially now that Flickr has its own mobile app. Have you tried it? You should, it’s actually pretty good.
And now to make it easy for you to take that decision to go back, Flickr is giving away their Pro Account so you can try it for 3 months gratis! The holiday gift as they want to call it normally will cost you $6.95 (one year subscription costs $24.95) is actually perfect for old members (like me) who haven’t got a chance to renew our Pro Account
So what do you get with your Pro Account:
1. Unlimited (fair use permitted) uploads (upto 50Mb per photo). The free account only get 300Mb per month and limited to 30Mb per photo.
2. Unlimited viewing of your entire photo library. The free account can only see the last 200 photos.
3. Post photos in upto 60 groups, as opposed to 10 for the free account. Yes, Flickr has many many user groups where you can ‘contribute’ your work and discus matters in particular according to the group’s theme.
4. Download your original Hi-Res photos. The free account can only download a resize-smaller ones.
5. Upload and View unlimited HD Videos. Yes in Flickr you can upload Video too! The free account is limited to 2 videos a month.
6. Ads Free
7. Last but not least, you get to see your photo stats (Google Analytics like), which is quite cool
Flickr seems to try quite hard to entice the Instagram crowds to move in with them, and so far with the new and shiny mobile app and now this great offer, it hasn’t been doing a bad job at all.
Go and have a try the Flickr Pro Account, you might like it and decide to stay
