    Default To Flickr or not to Flickr

    Hi Guys,

    I haven't been back here for a while, and I thought I would come back in get some thoughts on Flickr. I used it like a depository of images previously and I loved the social sharing functions on the site. I loved how I could interacted through groups, comment and get comments, tage images with notes, put up slideshows etc.

    However I have been using it less now with some many other cloud facilities available. My friends seem to use it less too. So my question is, my PRO account expires in 2 days and I'm wondering if there is any value in renewing the pro subscription.

    What are your thoughts?

    Lydia

    Hope I put this i the right thread.

    I think a lot of people in this forum still use flickr.

    but overall they've lost quite a lot of users, I won't be renewing my subscription after the current one runs out.

    If not Flickr what's the alternative?

    I think the main problem with flickr is that it hasn't changed very much. The recent new features are not really anything special . 500px really allows you show off you portfolio really well and present your pictures more professionally .

    However Flickr does seem to optimise well with Google search .

    Google plus ? is anybody using it ?

    Interesting to hear this.

    What's attractive about other cloud services?

    500px, I feel that I am not worthy to even register....

    hihi

    Sorry to hijack the thread,

    Is there a sort of minimum sort of 'standard' before signing up 500 px ?

    honest question, What do u guys mean by not worthy to register ?

    As I m using a free flickr account but not sure if 500 px is a good site to sign on as well.

    If so, I am definitely not worthy to register as well...

    Thanks thanks for the quick feedback.

    Wow excellent photos here , alot to learn from. Thanks for sharing

    But to be honest, this is not unlike Pbase popular galleries or to a lesser extent, Flickr Explored

    I find that flickr is not so user friendly for me.
    I prefer google plus.

    but its not professional looking enough.

    in fact flickr isnt too but just looks better.

    but now 500px rules i think.

    +1 for 500px. love the entire way 500px works and how it looks - and the quality of pictures there. there's no minimum standard but everyone seems to upload their best..and that's what people should be doing anyway! haha. i dumped my basic flickr account for 500px

    Flickr is relatively cheap if you are looking for a hosting site.

    It has lost a lot of its shine in terms of social networking amongst photographers through the years though.

    I have a love and hate relationship with flickr. What I love about it: My friends are all there. I dont like so much: The UI interface. I hope Yahoo sells off flickr to a more vibrant and forward looking company.
