Flickr Pro is now making a return to the very common image sharing network. Flickr has announced today that it is bringing back its Flickr Pro service, with improvements. The improvements include analytics and insights.
YAHOO’S FLICKR IS BRINGING BACK FLICKR PRO AFTER TWO YEARS
Yahoo’s Flickr went under a major revamp in May of 2013 in which there were major changes announced. Yahoo announced that it was removing the Pro plan in order to allow every user to have the 1 TB of storage option. The company also introduced an advertisement-free version for $49.99 per year. This most recent announcement makes a complete turnaround from the 2013 announcement.
THERE WILL ALSO BE A TWO PERCENT DISCOUNT OF THE ADOBE CREATIVE CLOUD PHOTOGRAPHY PLAN
With Flickr Pro coming back, it is also bringing back the paid plan. This paid subscription will cost $5.99 for users per month, or $49.99 per year. This also includes a two percent discount on the Adobe Creative Cloud Photography plan. Also, if you paid for the ad-free version, then you will automatically be upgraded to Flickr Pro. Although Flickr Pro users will automatically receive an update, there will not be any extra storage space being added.
FREE SHIPPING ON PRODUCTS IN THE UNITED STATES
In addition to these other announcements, Flickr says that the company will be providing free shipping in the United States on purchases of Flickr merchandise and 50 percent off of international shipping with a $25 minimum purchase.
FLICKR PRO IS RETURNING WITH IMPROVED ANALYTICS
One of the most interesting parts of the new Pro subscription are the improved analytics. Flickr says that photographers will be able to use improved navigation for viewing information on their photo. The company is also going to provide improved statistics for checking how well your photos did. Flickr Pro members will also not be seeing any advertisements on the site. They will also be adding a badge to your Pro account to let everyone know that you are a paid subscriber.
Flickr was once the dominant website within the photography community. However, they face a lot of competition from services like SmugMug and 500px. The reinstated Flickr Pro is in hopes to attract new users and to keep the current subscribers satisfied.
