Well as i just finally figured out :oops: the new Flickr is not very compatible on older browsers, just upgraded my mozilla to the newest version and now almost everything works (except for the "edit" page) feelin kinda silly. Still don't like it though.

Pros

- More modern
- Can more easily see larger images, I don't own a DSLR to take 600px wide shots
- No goddamn ratings like 500px that turn it into a bloody awful competition

Cons

- Photo height appears limited
- Slow and frequently breaks formatting
- Image placement isn't as neat as 500px
- Black background doesn't really compliment photos
- No map
- Annoying slideshow setting is like something out of 2003
- The big white search box is distracting and too close to the image borders

Honestly I quite like the new layout. I was never a big fan of the old flickr layout so I never ended up using flickr very often.

However there seem to be some issues when I try to view a photo... The page loads with no formatting so everything is in a column on the left. I re-installed Chrome yesterday so I think they have some work to do yet!

Rather bold comment by this woman, but whatever.

From the Flickr FAQ:

I’ve heard that Flickr Pro is no longer being offered. How does that affect me?

As of May 20, 2013, we are no longer offering Flickr Pro subscriptions to the majority of our members. Some things to be aware of (with more details below):

Recurring Pro members currently have the ability to continue renewing at the same price.
Eligible Pro members can get a prorated refund for a limited time.
Eligible non-recurring Pro members can purchase a recurring Pro subscription.
The “Gift of Pro” will no longer be available for purchase.
Pro users will no longer appear with a “Pro” badge beside their name or buddy icon

Your Pro pricing remains the same and your benefits have improved:

Those who remain Pro will retain all their original benefits.
The photo and video size limits will be upgraded to those offered with our new free account.
If you are on a recurring Pro subscription, your payments will remain as is. To see what your current subscription costs, see the previous payment on in your order history.
Pro members will never be automatically transitioned to an Ad Free or Doublr subscription.


Wait...what???
My question now is what is different between current "Pro" accounts and the new free accounts? They are giving the option to continue paying for Pro renewal, but why would anyone continue to pay for what appears to be identical service as a free account?

I like it so far. I was all set to soon dive into 500px more but with this update I may just revitalize my old Flickr acct. I'm also curious to see if/how yahoo integrates Flickr with my Tumblr blog.

Just one annoying thing however is the big white search box. They need a more elegant way to do that, like hide it.

This is clearer than the information we had yesterday, thanks for sharing.

I'm on the fence about the changes. There are elements that I like, and some that I don't. I do feel, though, that the new account options are a slap in the face for many long time Pro users who make up the core of the Flickr community. It's great for Free users and newcomers, of course. I'll have to play around the new interface and see if I can get accustomed to it and get to like it before I decide whether or not I want to stick around.

I actually like to see the stats. Since most viewers probably don't leave comments or favorites, it gives you a good idea of which photos are receiving the hits, and from what source. I suppose it isn't all that important, but then again, how important is a "nice shot" comment, or a "favorite" designation?

I just can't believe they are actually asking people to continue paying for Pro status. Even with an unlimited storage...if the max daily upload is 300MB (i think someone mentioned this earlier), then it takes literally hundreds of years to reach the 1TB limit on free accounts. Would be interested to see how invasive these ads can be on the free accounts.

The black backgrounds and lack of information is ridiculous. Now we have to scroll and click around where before we had all the info, maps, etc. right there. We only had black backgrounds as an option. Bring back the option to view it the old way please!

I really just started using Flickr last year because of the nice easy interface instead of using only my Wordpress website. I just went on over to 500px.com and it is a breath of fresh air. I think I may transfer over to 500px and forget Flickr.

Another thing you loose if you go from a Pro account to a free account is the ability to replace a photo.
