We won't see any significant changes any time soon, I would guess another year at the earliest.  They might be able to decouple the Yahoo account login before then, but not likely there'll be any other major changes for a while.  It needs a lot of work.

So far, so good for me, with just 90,00 images on Flickr.  I assume that Flickr's giant user image database will eventually end up in the domain of a friendly site--one that does not make me learn Russian....

Anyone with a Pro account have issues with them doubling the cost to $50 per year?

Anyone without a Pro account finding they don't see $50 a year in value for upgrading to a Pro account?

I am starting to wonder about the value of my Pro account and I am tempted to drop it and live with the ads on a free account.   Am I overlooking a major benefit?

I'm pondering the same thing. My Pro account doesn't come up for renewal until spring 2019, so I have several months to decide. Other than no ads, the main Pro feature I use is the stats page, and I could easily live without that. I'm nowhere near filling up even the 1TB you get with a free account, so I could also live without the unlimited storage space.

For those who use flickr without having a Pro account, how obnoxious are the ads? If they're not too intrusive, I'm leaning toward dropping my Pro subscription.

I ditched my Pro account years ago.  Absolutely nothing of value added right now.  If you're gonna pay for an account, pay for an actual Smugmug account instead - that way you have an actual personal, customizable website at least.

Ads are not a problem if you use an adblocker.

Ads? I've never seen an ad on Flickr and I've no Pro account.  Guess they can't be too obtrusive then.  I put my good stuff, not that good yet, on Flickr.  Like the way the app works on my phone and tablet.  Website works OK as well.
