Finally Flickr Pro returns after two years and this premium service is meant particularly for dedicated photographers, who can sign up for the service in order to gain additional features for the first time since 2013.
In May 2013, Flickr underwent a big revamp and announced various changes like it removed the Pro plan to give every user 1TB storage option for free. Yahoo also introduced an ad-free version for around $50 per year. But with the latest announcement, Yahoo is taking a U-turn.
Flickr Pro returns with improved features:
Yahoo believes that new and existing users will find it worth paying because it includes enhanced analytics, discounts on Adobe software and even a Pro badge.
Flickr Pro returns with an enhanced insights and analytics for users to see detailed information regarding the number of views of their photos. Users paying for the Pro service can also show their supremacy against normal users with the Pro badge.
Earlier this year Flickr revealed a revamped design for its webpage and mobile apps that appear to organize and store user’s photographs. This move came after Google unleashed a new photo solution.
Flickr Pro will cost $5.99 per month and $49.99 per year. With that, users will also get a discount on Adobe Creative Cloud’s Photography plan and if the users have paid for the ad-free version, they will automatically be upgraded to Flickr Pro.
Moreover, Flickr will also provide free shipping in the United States on the purchase of its merchandise and on international shipping it will give 50 percent discount but the minimum purchase should be about $25.
Flickr Pro returns because Yahoo wants to entice the photographers which it lost earlier to some other services such as SmugMug and 500px.
