    I just hope they do not start jacking up the Pro price all the time. I can see a justification for them needing more money, because setting up data centers is not cheap, and they are handling a lot of data. But in the end if they start treating customers badly, there will be plenty of competition. Cloudification is just starting, and will have many benefits (and likely many problems also), but FLickr like services give us a reasonable chance to display our photos.

    Agree. It’s a lot of work to switch from one cloud to another if/when they raise the price beyond the introductory “gotcha” rates.

    What was the current cost of Flickr pro?

    I have not checked, but I heard it is around $50/yr.

    I have found the best and safest place for your photos is on your hard drive. vin

    But isn't that what backups are for? You can store all your flash drives elsewhere.

    This is when I appreciate being a luddite. All this extra money and time, and the industry has you by the short hairs. It would aggravate me to no end.

    The problem with your harddrive is it doesn't display photos online for you ;)

    That's my point. A (single) hard drive is only safe as long as it works properly.

    yes it does, without the cloud. also, the hard drive can be removed and downloaded, with the use of an "adaptor" and it becomes a storage item. vin

    If you’re using Flickr as your cloud backup I don’t think that was its intended purpose.

    Post the pictures you’re proud of and want to share with others on Flickr (or one of the other many hosting sites).

    That being said, I thought when they rolled out the 1TB of free space that they said that it was going to be free forever. I don’t remember reading the fine print but I do feel like they are going back on something they had said they would offer.

    It doesn’t make much difference to me personally though since I’m no where near 1000 pics.

    Doesn’t adobe give 1TB of cloud storage with their $10/mo photography package?

    Adobe gives storage space, but I've no idea if it ties into embedding onto website and forums. I think Adobe is more focused on giving you storage that lets you work on different computers linked to cloud data storage. Remember its not just storage space that's an issue its bandwidth when displaying image stored on an online service.

    If you were not tied to deeply into Flickr where would you go instead to upload your photos?
