I would imagine most flickr users have already seen this when they log in, but in case some don't check their accounts or upload frequently, I thought I'd pass it along.

If you don't have a pro account, you get to try it out for free. If you have one, then they will extend your paid membership by three months so you won't need to renew as soon.

I got an email. I've been thinking about upgrading so this is a good way to check it out.

Thanks so much! I haven't looked on Flickr for a few weeks.

Merry Christmas.

What exactly do most pros use Flickr for?
Do you use it as an interface with customers or just need a pro account because it allows you more storage. I saw the offer on Flickr for the three month trial but wonder what it offers over the free account.

You're welcome.

I am not a pro photographer, I just have a pro account because you have unlimited uploads. A free account limits the number of photos you can upload each month. Many months I wouldn't come anywhere close to that limit, other months I'd have tons to upload.

Also, there is something like a 200 photo 'limit' for free accounts. So while it continues to store the photos you can't 'see' older photos that are in excess of that amount.

A pro account also gives you stats for your photos (something that I don't need or utilize) so you can find out who is viewing them, where the traffic is coming from, etc.

For my personal uses it's just the unlimited uploads and storage that I desire.

Thanks for that info heartcat. I've been mostly using photo bucket but got into flikr recently, mostly because of all the different groups they have, which make it easy to see what people are taking with different specific lenses. Not sure that a pro account would do much more for me but then, free is hard to resist.
