Switching to Flickr
Yesterday, I decided to start moving my photos to Flickr. Why? One of the main reasons is a combination of two things. With a Pro account (for only $2/mo), I can upload 2gb per month. There is no fixed storage amount, so it constantly grows. With this, it would be a great way to store all the photos that I don't post online as well. Since I can mark them as private, I can easily upload all my other photos I don't want to make public so that they are safely off my system.
I've had it happen before where I accidentially lost photos from deleting them by accident, reformatting, hard drive failure, etc. I don't have full redundant storage at home, and just want simple storage of my photos in a way that is easy to browse them when I want to. Flickr makes that pretty easy. All photos in one place, some public, some private.
