So...if I drop my Flickr account (as in forever) will photos still show in my old TR's? Also, if I decide to post TR's in the future is there an alternative method to displaying photos rather than just a web link?

Yes, we now preserve a copy (1600 pixel size) for all images posted.  You can create a new flickr account to post new photos if you are up against the free limit.  That's probably the easiest and simplest option unless you have a google photos account.

Tom,

OK, thanks. It's not a space problem for me since I have a paid subscription. It is more of an issue of wanting to reduce my digital footprint and paid accounts. I have so much cloud storage available (Verizon, icloud, onedrive, etc.) that I don't need Flickr to store the limited number of photos that I do take. Also, just want to simplify my life. Guess I will just put that issue aside and make a decision when the next subscription fee comes due.

Just for the record: if you delete your pro Flickr account it will automatically revert back to a free account. Sheesh, I guess the only way to get rid of the whole thing is to delete the logon parameters.

You can now upload images directly, no need to use flickr unless you want to.

Yeah, that is what I have been using for the past year. I like it, thanks. That is the main reason I wanted to can Flickr (and reduce that high pro subscription fee).
