In an effort to make the company’s business model sustainable, Flickr is deleting excess images, but it’s taking new measures to soften the blow.

Still a Flickr member after all these years. So quiet for a while, it’s been picking up of late, though far short of the level of response I get on Instagram. Nice to see some heat about the place.

It retains a high degree of usefulness with the 49$ Pro subscription, I’m glad I kept that up. This response is typical of the new owners, decent and well thought through. They offer free Pro accounts to museums and charities, really good.
