SmugMug Flickr acquisition

We’re excited to announce that Flickr has agreed to be acquired by SmugMug, the photography platform dedicated to visual storytellers.
SmugMug has a long history of empowering people who love photography and who want to improve their craft, making them a perfect fit for Flickr and our creative community. With SmugMug, we’ll continue to focus on you, the Flickr members who inspire us all with your work.

Nothing will change immediately with regard to your Flickr account. You will still access Flickr with your current login credentials and you will have the same Flickr experience as you do now. We will continue to work to make your Flickr experience even better.

We think you are going to love Flickr under SmugMug ownership, but you can choose to not have your Flickr account and data transferred to SmugMug until May 25, 2018. If you want to keep your Flickr account and data from being transferred, you must go to your Flickr account to download the photos and videos you want to keep, then delete your account from your Account Settings by May 25, 2018.

If you do not delete your account by May 25, 2018, your Flickr account and data will transfer to SmugMug and will be governed by SmugMug’s Terms and Privacy Policy.

Read more detailed FAQs about this transition on the Flickr Blog.

We’re happy that Flickr is your home for photography and we look forward to the next chapter in our adventure together as we join the SmugMug family.

Thanks,
The Flickr Team


Seems SmugMug is a paid sharing site so once again its pay or get your sh*t off!

I think that ultimately this will lead to the end of DIY threads on sites due to all the boken links and dont think people will be paying a subscription to upload photos to forums.

The author of the article I linked sounds confident that Flickr will retain a free aspect. We probably won't keep our full terabyte, but I'm still at less than 1% of mine, so I don't really care. We'll see how much SmugMug charges for a basic account in an attempt to keep Flickr's customer base, though. It might be worth it to me, since I have use for it outside of forums. If not, there's YouTube (... for now).

I doubt that Cyborg as they are giving a date to download the content you wish to keep and close your account or the account will be transferred over under their regulations.

I mentioned it to someone I chat with on another forum, and he screen-capped this:



I'm limited to my phone for now, so I can't check if that was from a page on Flickr. "No changes to plans" sounds promising, but there's always that "3rd party hosting" thing Photobucket screwed us on... fingers crossed.

GhostAccord mentioned in the other thread that SM charges $50/yr. That's not bad at all, if thats what it Flickr becomes.
