Flickr Brings Back Its “Pro” Subscription Plan.

Flickr announced today it’s bringing back its “Pro” subscription plan aimed at power users of Yahoo’s photo-sharing service, which will introduce a variety of new features, including access to improved analytics, software discounts, and more, as well as allow for an ad-free experience.Flickr has recently announced that they are bringing back the Pro tier, and while for the most part it is similar to the previous iteration of the Pro tier, it will also introduce some changes and new features as well, something that professional photographers might be able to appreciate if they rely on Flickr for storage or as their portfolio.The company hopes existing and new users will find it worth paying for since it includes discounts on Adobe software, improved analytics, and even a Pro badge.

Signing-up for a fresh Pro account still won’t help you get unlimited storage and you will still have to bear the grunt of 1TB ceiling just like the free users.Besides giving photographers with some new characteristics, it’s likely Flickr just desired to provide clients more good reasons to spend really – a Terra byte of space is greater than just for hight percentage of consumers, and Flickr’s adverts weren’t for that reason invasive that many of end users could possibly be obliged to pay for about them. Probably most useful to full-time photographers, a new analytics dashboard makes it easier to view performance data on your photos, including which ones are more popular and impactful. As you may recall, Yahoo made a number of significant changes to its pricing tiers in spring 2013, which saw it introducing new tiers like “ad-free” and “doublr” (double the storage space), while dropping the older version of Flickr Pro.

According to effectively Flickr, the built from scratch Pro subscriptions include admittance to new and superior research data, inclusive of enhanced your internal links for using these statistics on… In mild along the recent free of Google Photos, Yahoo managed Flickr is struggling to produce itself appealing to clients by recovering its Pro editions, for all the people who exactly need images really. Your pricing and unlimited storage space plans will also continue to be in effect, so basically you’re getting an upgrade while keeping some of the old perks. It’s been two years since Flickr killed off Flickr Pro as a premium Flickr experience, opting instead to give everyone a flat-rate experience to compete with the likes of Facebook and what was then known as Google+ Photos. The new training program provide a one- Terra byte hard drive storage, ensuring that every wedding photograher could possibly have the option of taking away with no dilema of space or hard disk for duplicate.

That being said, Yahoo at the same time made the confusing decision to grandfather in the existing Pro members, saying that it would continue to offer renewable subscriptions even though new users couldn’t sign up for Pro and anyone letting their subscription expire would also lose access to Pro for good. However, in light of increasing competition from startups aimed at professional photographers -like EyeEm or 500px, the latter which is fresh off a new million round of funding just this week – it seems that Yahoo is making more of an attempt to woo professionals back to its platform…or at least keep those pros it still has.

Pro members also get free shipping on Flickr store items within the US (or 50% off internationally), so the subscription could very well pay for itself depending on how often you use those services. Subscribers will also receive improved analytics, including better navigation for viewing data on pictures and stats that offer more insight on your best and most popular photos. (Ad-free was also $49.99 per year.).

Pro members will also not be subjected to ads when viewing their own photos or those from others, and they’ll once again get the “Pro” badge on their profile. Developers have taken this decision because they felt users should have the possibility to better store and organize their images on their Internet pages. Flickr is an image hosting and video hosting website, web services suite, and online community that was created by Ludicorp in 2004 and acquired by Yahoo! in 2005.

Alternately, users can visit their Account page to upgrade to a different tier if they choose. “Over the years, we’ve made changes to our account options as the needs of our members have evolved,” a spokesperson explained. “With the success of the Flickr 4.0 launch, our new and existing members have asked for improved photo stats so they can learn more about the engagement on their photos along with the revival of the Flickr Pro badge.”
