Flickr Pro

Every time I post a photo on this blog I also upload it to Flickr. I suppose I do this to increase the visibility of my photos and sometimes I want to show someone a photo when i am away from my computer. In any case I am approaching the limit of the free Flickr account (200 photos). 

I can either upgrade to the pro account which would give me unlimited storage (not a problem since I do one medium size photo a day), unlimited uploads (break that 200 photo barrier) and stats on my account, and I am a sucker for stats. I could also start uploading full resolution versions of my photos. 

But it costs twenty-five dollars a year. An alternative solution, or at least temporary, would be to go back and cull out the bad photos I uploaded and just keep the good or popular ones. 

The reason that I do not switch over to say Google’s photo program Picasa is for two reasons. I like the group feature of Flickr and I don’t want to put all of my online presence into one company (I currently use GMail).

Then again twenty-five dollars is not a lot over the course of year. It is only four good burritos (or 2 great ones). 

If only I could make money off of my Flickr photos to pay for the Pro account.
