I'm glad I use Smug Mug.
+1
But, 1TB for those who like/use flickr is excellent.

I used to be a flickr pro member since 2007 with two accounts that allowed both his membership to lapse about 3 months ago and based on today's news it appears that I did the right thing.

Now, how do you change the pagelayout?

I do not need 1TB of space. I'd never upload anything larger than a 1MP image or else I invite asshats to steal my work.
Visit my Flickr, Facebook & 500px and see my photos. :)

I do not use Flickr so ...  But I'm glad for those who use it.

Key question (albeit probably deserving of a separate thread) - SmugMug or Zenfolio?

I never tried Zenfolio, but SmugMug works OK for me.  Earlier this year, I was trying to decide between Flickr and Smugmug -- glad I went with SmugMug.  I post links to my SmugMug pics to my Facebook page -- I no longer load pics directly into FB.  Biggest SmugMug complaint is that they only take normal picture files -- no CR2, LR catalogs, etc.

Question: My main issue with "free" Flickr is (or was?) that only the newest 300 shots or something like that are shown - has this changed or do I still need a paid account to be able to show older shots?

It appears all the photos on the stream are viewable now, I need to check again, but in that case it really makes me happy. I was contemplating paying just so all the photos are viewable, but now (along with my effective ad blocker) I have no reason to pay, and I do like the new look, so I'm happy :)

Thanks Flickr... You made my day!  This is what Flickr should be from day 1.  I think google got the same strategy.  Offer something free and earn from advertisements instead of from your posters.  Great business!

I'm happy about this.  Used Flickr many moons ago, gave up because of the 300 picture limit.  I may try them again, will have to see how bad ads are and such.  I wish that Google (Picasa) would follow suit.  That's what I use for family and friends to display shots.  All in all it's a good trend, though I feel for the Pro users who seem to suffer a bit from this change.

You get a TB of total storage space. But you are maxed out at 300MB of uploads a month for the free account. You'll never reach a TB...

I think they have removed monthly 300 MB limit. Its just total 1TB space now.

Awww that's too bad.  I was looking forward to uploading 300MB a month for the next 291 years...

I like the new layout alot. Pictures themselves are now emphasized.  There is hardly any whitespace anymore. A welcome improvement.

Yesterday, they also released a new android app that shows up now for my Galaxy 10.1.  Other than having no specific landscape mode, it's what I was hoping for from flickr.

What is your effective ad blocker???????

I have used Firefox browser and their Adblock Plus plugin. Have never seen an ad on Flickr. Who knows about the future.
