Several of my sharp-eyed readers noticed the changes on my Flickr pages of photos. Some of you liked the “new and improved” pages and some of you weren’t as fond of them.
Without getting into all of the details, I didn’t have much of a choice regarding upgrading my Flickr account. After SmugMug purchased Flickr from Yahoo, all Flickr account holders received an email saying that if they had more than 1,000 photos on Flickr, they had to 1) either delete the total images to less than 1,000 or 2) go with an upgrade.
I have tens of thousands of images (some are on public pages, like Albums, and some are on private pages, like the photos from motorcycle rides and other special events) on Flickr and I didn’t want to go through the hassle of downloading all of them and uploading them to a new hosting site. So, I opted for Solution 2 above.
Thanks for sharing your thoughts with me. I wish I could tell you that I could make the changes that some of you suggested, but my hands are metaphorically tied. I’m limited by the options made available by Flickr, er, Yahoo, um, no, I mean SmugMug. (It’s getting hard to keep track of who owns what.)
