As Yahoo announced its acquisition of Tumblr for $1.1 Billion, they have also shown Flickr users its redesigned lay-out and a big upgrade on each users storage. Yes, each Flickr user will have up to 1 Terabyte of storage. That means more than half a million pictures (on a 6.5 megapixel) can be stored on your account.
Previous users (free) are allowed of up to 300MB worth of photos in a month, but today that will not be the case anymore. Photo-addicts will rejoice to this good news from Flickr as they can upload without limits (except that you can only have 1 TB of free space). Though the thing is its not ad-free.
If you upgrade for $50 a year, your account would be ad-free. If you want to double your storage space (to 2 TB), you have to shell-out $500 a year. But heck, can you fill out 1TB quickly? I'm pretty sure a lot of photobloggers would be delighted with the news. XD

Well I need to sort some old photos on my external hard drive to upload them all. XD
I guess I need to start uploading ASAP. XD
