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 don't pay. If I reach the point where I'm getting to my limit, then I'll decide.

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!

All I use flickr for is temporary hosting for forums, so free for me.

    • I agree.   I have said in the past, i learn to be a better hunter when they aren't easy.  Turkeys seem to become an obsession if you allow yourself to let them get in your blood! Love the chase.
    • ya but its fun! It was nice getting out i am learning alot watching them and being out there gets me more experience since i shot mine this year after being out a total of probably 6 hours for two days
    • Frustrating buggers aren't they!
    • well gobbled like crazy in the morning finally got a hen to come out she came 1 foot away from blind. Then 4 more came behind her 2 toms and 2 hens then the hens went back to the woods and one tom followed the other tom stayed in the open strutting back and forth just out of range then a crane came and he strutted at that then a goose came and he strutted at that they all came out just out of range and cut to our side. They sat there strutting at each other and couldn't get them to come in. One of them came back started walking to our decoys once again just out of range. Uncle tried to get out and go through the dirt bike track he's currently laying on top a jump within 60 yards of them no other options to sneak he chose the wrong way to go should have crawled against the burn... Man these buggers suck going to change blind spots next time know where they roost and see where they strut on the property. should of had a fan decoy out I bet that would have drawn them in
    • Well our lilacs were just starting to bud out yesterday and I was thinking we should go take a peek today. Unfortunately we got 2 inches of snow overnight and it's still coming down! I'm pretty sure Hubbard county will have to wait at least a week to ten days with the temps forecast.
    • Sorry...no excuses BB...the better team did win....4-1. Lucky for the Wild that Statsny was not playing from the start or it woukd have been a sweep. Love the fact that the national hockey gurus are ripping the Wild right now..and read local Souhans article pretty much what I've been saying. http://m.startribune.com/wild-again-not-good-enough-when-it-matters/420167633/ While Chicago is telling it like it is...the Wild are sending the wrong message...and Chicago has 3 cups in recent past....6 overall...pretty obvious which organization is trying to win the cup every year and which one is happy just "selling tickets".
    • Got off to a late start, but was able to get to the lower river at 6 AM. Frost covered the ground, as temps were barely above freezing. I could hear turkeys gobbling as I walked through the field. Once I made it to the wooded river valley, the sound of grouse drumming echoed through the woods. Eagles and ospreys continually flew over my head throughout he morning. The water was mabye a couple inches high, and somewhat cloudy, but was noticeably clearing as the morning progressed. 8 o'clock seemed to be the magic hour, as that's when I caught most of my 13 brown trout. Biggest was 16 inches, and had a few swipes from some dandies as well. Beautiful morning to be on the river!
    • So i have experimented with a bunch of brands to see which ones walk the best .... of coarse it depends on fisherman, rod & line being used.   7"2" Cabelas bass rod medium heavy tourney rod,  power pro 45# ...here is the order of best walking frog that worked for me off the dock.   1.  Terminator frog 2.  Bobby's perfect frog (pretty close to terminator) by snag Proof 3.  Spro frog (ok) 4.  KVD frog  (took some work) 5.  Booya pad crasher (teririble)   These are the ones i own ... terminator and snag proof where effortless!!!
