    Do you have a free Flickr account?

    Do you have more than 1000 photos and/or videos uploaded to it?

    If so, in early 2019 you will have to either upgrade to a new paid for Flickr Pro account, or download your content beyond 1000 photos and/or videos off the platform. You will have to upgrade before January 9th 2019, or download excess content before 5th February 2019.

    If you don't download excess content before 5th February 2019 it will be deleted, starting with the oldest content, until your free account reaches the new 1000 photos and/or videos limit.

    The new Flickr Pro account, offering unlimited ad-free storage will be $49.99 (approx £40) a year. Upgrade your free account before January 9th 2019 and you will get a 30% discount off your first year.

    I just use Google Photos, in the high-quality mode (which reduces images to 16-megapixels and video to full HD). I have in fact now got a 1TB account that I think is being upgraded to 2TB and may switch to original quality (Google Pixel phone users can use original quality without any limits).

    For Android users especially, Google Photos works exceptionally well - especially when it comes to searching for images by date, location and what's in the picture.

    I always found Flickr to be a bit of a mess, but will check what photos I may have there that I haven't already put on Google Photos. There's no way I'm going to pay £40 a year, with or without a discount.
