I have pro account but I follow portrait related groups that allow nudes, I believe even some Sony related groups do too

Move to SmugMug No problems here at the moment.


This comment stuck in my mind as I have had all the associated problems with Flickr and last week I decided to abandon it, especially since I haven't been able to log in for two weeks, and kick it into touch.

Signed up for a basic SmugMug account to provide somewhere to host my Dyxum photos and it works a real treat. I particularly like the simplicity in capturing BBCode, so thank you addy for the tip.

Never used Camera Roll much, Fred, but it sure works.

Well, the letter itself is here.

What now? Get people to sign up for the pro account.
And you payed the 2019 fee - don't know why you consider this

why shouldn't I be concerned? What happens if they can't keep it afloat? It's only been 2 years and doesn't look like things are going well, what happens if they can't keep it going? Should I start downloading/backing up my photos? I literally just paid the $50 USD fee (which is more like $65+ CAD), and now I'm reading this, you bet I have concerns Do YOU have the "Pro" account at Flickr?

Yes, like other Pro members I got the letter pleading for help to drum up more Pro subscribers to help keep things afloat.
Must say I'm not worried that the whole thing's about to come crashing down.
I guess if the letter does succeed in drumming up some new Pro subscribers it will just be a little icing on the cake, but not in any way a game changer.

I also got this email a few days earlier:
"How Far Can You Take Your Photography?
50% off SmugMug: The perfect photography partner.
We know you take your photography seriously. Your desire to take more and better photographs is innate. But what’s next for you and your camera?
Flickr Pros get 50% off the first year of any SmugMug plan. So whether you just want to build a slick website to show off your new work or you want to start making money selling prints, you’ll find the right features for the right price.
Start my free trial".

It then went on with various links to examples of what SmugMug has to offer.

I did have a bit of a think about it, and wondered whether it might be worth giving it a try and posting a few dozen of my most viewed and most faved images on SmugMug to see whether they might generate any interest or even sales, but am feeling pretty ambivalent about it.

Do any SmugMug users have any experience to share on this matter?

Long before I joined Flickr my first venture into on line photo posting was an Australian site called Photo Art Gallery where you could post images that were displayed watermarked until purchased. I did sell a few, but never on any significant scale, and the site eventually died. I then joined Flickr basically so as to be able to be an active Dyxum participant, and the rest is history.

Relax. Deep breath. Flickr isn't about to go under. Smugmug needs to leverage the flickr accounts not alienate them. If they just shut it down most would migrate to Instagram and doom their business model.

I'm with Joe, just joined FLICKR to post on Dyxum, wish I'd done it properly in the first place as I didn't expect to be here so long!! I never gave details re my shots and although I seem to have a few followers I find it now to be an embarrassment!! Anyway never had any problems, everything always worked smoothly, I deleted a couple of thousand shots a while back and now live within the allocated limit of one thousand, currently 363 left before I delete again.

Just read Don MacAskill's pleading blog but it didn't resonate with this digital luddite, don't do Netflix, Spotify et al however I did receive this 'gift' from ON1RAW which I think says a lot about possible future directions. $180 worth, makes me think a lot about that "free lunch"….



Haven't had a look yet but I'm going to...
