Flickr 1K photo limit starting January 8th
on: January 05, 2019, 07:05:30 AM
If you have more than 1,000 pics which most of us do on your account(mine has 1700) you cant upload anymore unless you get a paid subscription. Oh well, guess we will have to use imgur or delete half the photos

Deleting the pics is just as annoying as deleting bloated email inbox, not sure I have the patience

I just left my account as is and have been using Imgur :salute: I only use photo hosting for MTO, I use Google Photos for all my regular pic taking :tu:

What does suck though is that they will start deleting pics over the 1K after today :facepalm: I had more pics than I should have and I guess I should have known that this was coming ::) Hoping it doesn't mess to many threads up in here though :bnghd:

Just deleted 1600 images from my flickr stream. :(  I do have copies of everything so if anyone spots a smurfed image link anywhere that they need to see I can probably re-upload a copy.

You can batch organize here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/organize, which isn't too bad

I opened a flickr and imgur account just before PB went south. I've got most all my pics on imgur as it was easier to use than flickr. I do have around 700 pics on flickr and under the limit so I'm glad I went with imgur as my main hosting site.

I left everything as is, figured it would be easier just using another hosting site (IMGUR) than trying to delete photos. I switched as soon as the whole SmugMug buyout got started.

I switched rather quickly as well but I had way over the 1K limit :facepalm:

Wouldn't that be a good thing for Flickr? I mean, they're hosting all those pics for free.

Yeah, it was interesting looking through the pics I'd got on there and trying to work out what to keep, and what to upload in future.  MTO stuff will go in the gallery from now on and I'll keep flickr for 'good' photos and sets that tell a story.

gonna take me awhile, I think they have it pushed back to February 5th, I can't get on the site right now, must be a mass exodus of pics blowing up the server

I just upgraded to Pro. I think it's too much of a hassle to search through thousands of pictures. And this way all my pictures are save and secure.

just deleted about 500pics, there are a lot of duplicates which I cant figure out why 2 copies of the same pic got on the account, where on my phone there's just one copy, almost like they intentionally upped your count to get you over 1K and panic to pay money

They just changed servers or something similar.
I personally don't use the app but recall reading a notice to update to the new app.
For me the site was down for approx a day but now is working again.
