Flickr now gives you one terabyte of storage and more

Have you ever used Flickr to store photos before? I have. I began with the free version but when I maxed out the 200 photos it could show at any one time, I decided to buy Flickr Pro ($24.95) for 2 years. Flickr had a great photostream widget for blogs and I loved it.

But somewhere along the way, I stopped using it. There was Facebook.

But now, there is a huge reason to reactivate my Flickr account. You now get FREE one terabyte of storage!

If you still have your old Flickr account, it works. I just logged on to my old one and immediately got a notice that I had 1 terabyte worth of storage. Wow! Of course, new sign-ups get the same storage too.

And what is new?

User interface - Flickr has an entirely new interface. The homepage shows you pictures recently uploaded by your contacts. For every contact, you see one photo enlarged with 4 other thumbnail photos on the lower left corner in case you want to browse more photos of that contact. You can now put a cover photo and a high-resolution profile pic as well.

Full resolution photos - Flickr saves everything in its original file size. No shrinking of photos. No cramped formats. How many photos can fit into a terabyte? A WHOLE LOT!!! And...Flickr now comes with FILTERS!

Better sharing and sync-ing features - Just upload a photo once and it syncs to all your devices. Send to any friend or follower too. Fickr is an app on both iOS and Android platforms. For iOS, download the app HERE. For Android phones, download the app HERE.

Social features added - Friends and followers can now like and comment on your photos, making it even more fun to share.

This summer, snap photos and upload to your heart's desire. It will be a long, long time before you run out of space on Flickr.
