Venture into an entire world of captivating imagery and learn how to organize and share your best shots with others online. In this course, professional photographer Derrick Story guides you through the popular photo-sharing site Flickr, first introducing the Flickr mobile app, then demonstrating how to set up an account and upload images from your phone or common image editing applications such as iPhoto and Lightroom. Next, find out how to touch up and enhance your photos with the online editor, and make photos searchable with sets and collections and by assigning photos to maps. The course also helps you navigate the Flickr privacy settings and shows how to participate in the Flickr community through comments, contacts, groups, and more.
So, I've setup a new account and it's a freebie, and that's terrific. And I, I get a whole terabyte of space that doesn't cost me anything, share my photos in full resolution. And I have ads, and this is actually one of the more attractive ads. You will see ads there that you may not like as much. So, if you decide that you want to get rid of ads, Flickr will accommodate you. You go up to your icon here, and mouse over it. And you will see two options. Add more space, and Go Ad Free. Let's Go Ad Free.
I'm going to click on that. And here are our options. For $49.99 a year, I can remove the ads, I still keep all the other benefits. So, it's basically $50 a year to get rid of ads. I still have the 1 terabyte of storage space. Or if I just don't know what to do with my money, I can double and get an additional 1 terabyte of space. That's a total of 2 terabytes of space for $499.99 a year. So basically, I think most people that want to get rid of the ads will go this way here for $49.99 a year.
And that is renewable annually. So, if you want to do that, then you go ahead and click OK, remove ads. And you'll verify your stuff, and they'll walk you through the process of setting up how you're going to pay for this. Now, what if you're an existing pro account? Because, remember that's the way it was before, for 24.99 a year, let's go down here, I have this all set up. I have a Pro account, personally. And we set up a Pro account here for our lynda training, we have that, that renews on July 15, 2013. For those of you that have Pro accounts already, if you renew, you will continue to receive those pro benefits at that price.
So basically, at half the price of the 49.99 a year, you have unlimited storage, you get the new goodies, being able to upload full-resolution photos, longer videos and all that, for 24.99 a year as long as you don't let your pro account lapse. Now, the thing that you'll lose you don't get the Pro badge anymore because technically Pro accounts are going away. So, if you have a Pro account, you have a deal. You're in for half price. And if you're a regular Flickr user, I suggest that you probably want to hang on to that.
Otherwise, if you're a new user, then you're going to have to go with the new program. And either live with the ads or pony up the 49.99 a year.
