FlickR?

5 posts in this topic

I know many of you guys use Flickr for your image hosting. I have signed up and really like their site and the quality of the uploaded images.

I also have noticed they offer a year subscription for about $24.95 or so. With this you get to upload video also.

My main question is, do any of you pay for Flickr and if so what are the benefits you have found? I know the basic overview of the added features, but I thought I would see if any of you guys have first hand experience with this service before any purchase on part is made. Main thing, is it worth it?

Thanks

For info: On average I upload and share about a 800-1000 images a year.

I have exceeded my limit on Flickr but I don't expect to pay for the extra storage space anytime soon. For you Shack with 800-1000 each year, it might be worth it. I really like flickr though, one of my favorite photo sites.

I guess that is also what I am wondering. Dtro brought it up in another thread in here, but I used to just upload all my images for storage on AOL pictures. I had unlimited storage and just like Dtro said, AOL brought it up when I opened my account about images being lost in a fire (in a box or computer).

I guess I will find out what is the max.

I have uploaded about 2000 images onto to AOL and have a little over 1000 set to public.

I guess if one loaded an account to the maximum storage level, you could just start another new account?

Storage space was a feature I did see and take notice of, but besides video uploading (I do not even know if I can display the video on FM)if their was any other benefits of this service others have noted.

Thanks guys!

    • +1 on striker ice love mine    
    • I know of which you speak and they were full when I stopped by for my new fav Ghost Pepper beef sticks on the last weekend. Well I stopped by on the 1st-2nd and last weekend for the beef sticks! I use to cut up all my Deer until I and the wife wanted some of those more fancy brat's and sausage I just couldn't do.
    • My FXR sled jacket and bibs have the F.A.S.T Flotation Assistance system Technology in them so I get dlb duty out of the suit sledding and Ice fishing. Right now Cab's up in Rogers has the FXR outdoor suits but they aren't cheap. Love mine.    
    • Those look Great. Most of the time just crock potted them to death! 
    • Glad to hear it isn't the local 172 processor people complained about last year.    I was happy to have the needed "facilities" back this year.  Set up, skinned, sliced, diced, vacuum packed and cleaned up in 3.5 hours.  No, that doesn't include the grind, but we do take that in.
    • I go to Petty Bro's in Annandale and have with about the last 8-9 Deer. They usually get it back in about 3 weeks.
    • And aren't a big fan of eating it?   I'm OK with marinating and grilling the breasts but the rest of the family aren't big fans.  And I can say I prefer duck too.   So I tried smoking the breasts - and loved it!  And now I want more!   I took the simple route since it was my first try.  I picked up some High Mountain game bird and poultry brine and let em brine for two days chilled.   I put them on my smoker grill with the coals in the side fire box.  4 handfuls of wet mesquite chips during the 2.5 hour smoke at about 250 degrees.  I brushed with olive oil and teriyaki marinade to finish.  Pink and tender throughout, not jerked dry and tough.  Phenomenal.     I ate the last one yesterday on the deer stand.  After pulling the tenderloin off for the chefs treat, I just slice it thin against the grain.     Give it a try if you feel like the only things to do with geese are to grind em up.
    • So what do you propose we cut in order to offset that grand per job subsidy? Please be specific.   Do you propose doing the same for competing companies or do you like to play favorites?
