It was a turbulent year for Flickr. A one-time online photo service largely eclipsed by Instagram and other providers like Google Photos. The revolt at previous owner Yahoo did not help his prospects, and Flickr was sold to SmugMug last spring.
To promote Flickr Pro subscriptions, SmugMug reduced the free storage space from 1TB to 1,000 photos. What if you have more than 1,000 photos? Flickr deletes it on February 5th starting with your oldest photos.
The good news is that there are many alternatives to Flickr. Google Photos has unlimited storage space when your photos are up to 16 megapixels, while Amazon Photos Prime members have unlimited storage. Do not lose these Flickr snapshots; To download your photos from Flickr before they are deleted.
