Best Photo Sharing and Photo Backup site : Flickr Pro

This might seem a bit over the line but it’s true to its very essence. Flickr Pro is something I have found extremely awesome. Unlike any other service, it offers you unlimited storage for your photos. So in case you need to share original quality photos of huge resolutions and sizes with your family or friends separately, you will find it a cakewalk. You can set your settings such that no one will be able to see any of your photos unless you approve them. Sounds cool, eh! Feel free to add me in Flickr here

Now for another use of Flickr Pro. If you are looking to store all your photos as backup you can do so easily (because Flickr Pro offers unlimited storage remember?). You might say there is Zooomr which offers unlimited for free of cost, then why this? Really logical. But Flickr stands apart in ways. Firstly, Flickr is much more professional with lots of privileges and settings for your own account. Secondly, it has backup of a well-known company by Yahoo. Thirdly, Flickr has lots of social and community features which often seem to be helpful and navigation is also very easy. Fourthly, Flickr has made its API codes open. So everyday developers are coming up with cooler apps which has taken Flickr to the level where it is today. Fifthly, Zooomr often has hiccups as too many users are running for its free services. 

Now again some people will start crying that their favorite Picasa has been left out. Not at all, who else can compete with Microsoft and Yahoo better than Google! This would be a really close call between Picasa and Flickr based on your needs. So I suggest you this which will help you decide instantly. Let me know where you are sharing your cool snaps!

  1. I just signed up with Unlimited storage for both videos and pictures and it's completly free.
    No monthly limits or qoutas.
    Photos and videos are stored in their original formats and sizes and are kept unmodified for backup.
    I also like that you can geo-tag your stuff so it shows up on a map. And you can search for stuff on the map - that's cool!.
    As the only site i know of it uses a Windows Explorer like navigation with folders - super easy to use - even has drag and drop!.
    I can highly recommend it.


Have something to share? Let me know!
