Flickr announced their for-pay pro account yesterday. I went and subscribed for the next two years almost immediately. You get 1 Gb of uploads a month, with unlimited storage and bandwidth for an introductory price of $41.77 a year. Sounds like a great deal to me. I subscribed for two reasons. The first is that this is a Web application that I actually use and have used more, not less in the months since I joined. The combination of social network with photography is perfect because, at least for me, pictures tend to be a very social thing. Secondly, it is one of the best Web applications I have ever used, and I want to encourage the team that built it to build more stuff because I think that I will like the new stuff they might build just as much. Over the time I have been using Flickr, they have been constantly adding and rethinking things, and the result is an evolving elegant application.
