Upload & Sell: Off
Visually, it is interesting. Having said that, I understand that Flickr has to change, but it's a mite confusing, trying to understand/parse the language they use to describe what happens if you have (had?) a "pro" account.
1. To me, it sounds like you'll merely pay for the traces and statistics, but have the old "unlimited" storage in lieu of a 1 terabyte cap. Not that I would ever use Flickr as an archive...
2. It's unclear if users' rights have been changed/"updated" in any way?
3. What does this "recurring subscription" mean for an existing "pro" account holder?
I put a lot of effort into a Flickr account over the past few years and a feature I'd really like, is something that lets me "migrate" the data to a download in case I decide to change the nature of my account (e.g. close it, make it private, etc. etc.) Essentially, some portability of all the titles, geo-location, comments, statistics - I'd like to be able to preserve that data outside of Flickr's system, if that day came.
