Attention Maryland State Flickr Users

In February, Flickr will begin using a cost model for their platform if you have over 1,000 photo in your collection. If you do not, you will still be able to use the service for free. If you have more than 1,000 photos you’ll need to upgrade to Flickr Pro. The cost is $49.99/year and it comes with a terabyte of storage space and some other features not found in the free version like analytics. See the message below from the folks at Flickr.

"Free members with more than 1,000 photos or videos uploaded to Flickr have until Tuesday, January 8, 2019, to upgrade to Flickr Pro or download content over the limit. After January 8, 2019, members over the limit will no longer be able to upload new photos to Flickr. After February 5, 2019, free accounts that contain over 1,000 photos or videos will have content actively deleted—starting from oldest to newest date uploaded—to meet the new limit."
