Say Hello to 1TB of space :

About 500,000 photos can be uploaded into the 1TB free space if the photos are of a 6MP resolution. I mean this is a absolutely great way to push your product. Good Luck Yahoo!

I usually shoot at 16MP on my Canon 550D and that’s loads of space for me. About an average of 4.9Mb per picture.


There is No More of the [Flickr Pro] ? Only Spectaculr.



Quick question ? Would you want to buy extra space on Flickr ? Is 1TB of space more than enough for a every day user ?

Doing the math if you were to take a photo every hour in a day , it will take you about 60 – 65 years for fill up that 1TB Space.
