Using Flickr for Cloud Storage

Sunday, May 31, 2015 ~ I’ve had my Flickr Pro account for years. When Flickr introduced 1 terabyte free accounts, premium Flickr Pro accounts once offered to professional photographers ended. However those of us who kept our Pro accounts by continuing to pay the $25 annual premium, were given unlimited storage limits, ad-free pages and viewing, as well as page stats. This morning I was in my Flickr account feeling overwhelmed as I browsed through the photos automatically uploaded from my phone so I decided to research options for better ways to organize my files. It turns out that on May 7, 2015 Flickr added some new file organization help and upload features with its web Uploadr and Camera Roll and mobile device Auto-Uploadr tools. One of the most exciting findings is that Flickr will take care of the file duplications through the automatic de-duplication feature in the tools.
