    I am wondering are there any advantages of maintaining a "pro" flickr account? How many of you do it and what were your reasons for doing so?

    I suppose the flickr community is very large and there is some satisfaction in sharing all your photos but how many of you would actually pay for that satisfaction?

    Thanks in advance for your views!
    I do it because the price is pretty low for storage without limits.

    Naturally, they will keep hosting your image even without a pro account, and theoretically if you want to have access you can easily maintain a bookmark directory to access all your photos with good organisation and discipline. I just wanted to save the trouble of having to do that.

    That said, if you're actually looking for a good way to showcase your photos, and don't want to do too much DIY design or pay for a good web designer and go to trouble of getting your own site; Flickr is not really a good alternative and I would prefer sites like Pbase/Zenfolio.

    i;ll go check out pbase or zenfolio too... sine there is no regularity in which i showcase my pictures i suspect that flickr or a similar site is more up my alley.

    HD can fail, so you may want to think about having a second drive to mirror your data.

    i dont really like flickr pro account because after it expires. u cant view ALL your photos. only 200 again. i think its damn smelly way to make u keep renewing it. i rather just post on fb. maybe ill try 500px.com! it looks really fantastic!

    if 500px.com can come out with a tool to migrate flickr photos over, i will most probably jump ship in 1.x years time haha

    lol. i think thats very hard lah...but i think for me i can jump ship and re touch up my photos. i think my photo taste n style has changed and eyes also sharpened abit lol. so i think of going thru what i had and retouching and get over to px500 but.....lol thats gona be super time consuming lol

    From what I see in 500px, there seems to be a some kind limit even for pro accounts, like not more than 20 images a week and charges twice as much as Flickr. 500px's interface is definitely nicer and simpler, and has some option to sell your photos. This site seems to want people to upload only high quality photos in smaller quantity.

    500px is a nice alternative if you only want to showcase your best photos. Flickr is the way to go if you want to upload tons of photos and are not too concerned with the interface and presentation.
