flickrToday Flickr announced that it will be giving all of their subscribers ONE TB of storage. It also appears that it will come at no cost. Wow, 1TB that is a lot of space. I think that I can fill that and will start to dump of (upload) lots of older photos, but that was the intent of the last hard drive purchase…one for only photos…and it filled the 2TB capacity fast. The backup system stil not quite in place, as I considered some type of mirroring. Now this may be the solution or partial. With some good sorting and probably a pain in the rear indexing/keywording and more this will take some time….but a welcome item as many of the other Cloud solutions come up very short when it comes to solutions for photos. I have several 8GB compact flash cards, which means that after one shoot (I usually fill one and start on another) my solution to storage is to dump it all on one drive. The backup if done would be three DVDs and some major thought how to sort…even with Lightroom it is a mess. We will see how long this process takes there are well over 50,000 maybe more photos to be uploaded….still awesome news
