Like many popular websites and Internet services, Flickr is a "freemium" service. This means that it can be used for free, but doing so comes with certain limitations. Thus, Flickr also offers a paid subscription option that removes some of these limitations and gives some other benefits.
Flickr has two types of accounts: Flickr Free and Flickr Pro.
FEATURES AND LIMITATIONS
1 terabyte (that's 1000 gigabytes or 1,000,000 megabytes!) of memory storage space
Upload photos of up to 200 megabytes in memory storage size
Upload videos of up to 1 gigabyte in memory storage size and up to 3 minutes in length
Download your original photos as many times as you like
Advertisements will appear when you browse or share photos
COST: $6 monthly or $50 annually.
Advanced photo stats that show how often they're viewed and how people find them
Removal of advertisements when you browse or share photos
If you subscribe to the annual Flickr Pro plan, you get two bonus features:
20% off the first year of a subscription to the Adobe Creative Cloud Photography program (which allows you to use the Creative Cloud editions of photo editing programs Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Lightroom)
Free standard shipping (and 50% off international shipping) on photo-related merchandise orders from Flickr that total over $25 (includes things such as photo books and wall hangings)
That's a bit about the (potential) costs involved in using Flickr!
