Flickr Free is limited to 1000 foto’s and will start deleting old photos in half a year…

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/05/04

A reminder to myself: about half a year ago, [WayBack] Flickr announces changes From we note the following: Free accounts will soon be limited to 1,000 photos or videos. Flick… – Jeff Diver – Google+

Free members with more than 1,000 photos or videos uploaded to Flickr will no longer be able to upload new content after Tuesday, January 8, 2019 unless they upgrade to Pro. After February 5, 2019, free accounts that contain over 1,000 photos or videos will have content deleted — starting from oldest to newest date uploaded — to meet the new limit. Members may always choose to download content over the limit at any time prior to these dates.

I had been a Flickr Pro subscriber for a long time, but the social interactions where mweh, and I had far less storage than the free tier anyway, so I let the Pro expire.

With about 33k photos, I seem to have no other options than to:

  • download everything, and find a new place, including all meta-information
  • go pro

Time to make a decision in a month or so…

Flickr: The Help Forum: Can’t view my original sizes; solve this manually with a simple URL workaround

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/04/17

In every new update, Flickr either seems to hide, or move useful options away.

About a month ago, this was the case with the “View All Sizes” of a photo. Having multiple sizes of a photo is one of the key features when Flickr was introduced. There is even a naming scheme for these resized photos.

A very useful option when you need thumbnails (for instance when you write a blog).

It later got resolved, but now the option is tucked away like 4 mouse clicks (on various areas of your screen) deep:

When selecting ‘download/all sizes’ a ‘view all sizes’ link now appears.

If there is nothing wrong with your typing skills, this is a very quick workaround: add `/sizes` at a specific part of the photo URL.

For instance, these URLs:     Read the rest of this entry »

The #Yahoo privacy catch 22: telling to move data but not telling me the source and destination country.

Posted by jpluimers on 2013/12/15

Great move Yahoo (which I only use for Flickr): telling me that Yahoo can improve performance by moving my data to another country without telling which country the data is stored now, and which country Yahoo wants to transfer my data to.

The URL starts with, but does that mean to origin or target country is within Europe?

Of course the Yahoo privacy policies don’t tell either: why would they…

So I cannot confirm, nor deny the provided choice. Nice privacy catch-22!
