$50 (around £40) per year – 1TB
Flickr has long been the go-to option for millions of enthusiast photographers, not least because its galleries and tools are specifically designed to enable you to share your images and communicate with other photographers online.
Everyone who registers gets 1TB of photo storage for free, and if you upgrade to Flickr’s Pro plan (for $5.99 a month, or $50 a year) you still get the 1TB of storage, plus an ad-free interface, Flickr’s handy auto uploader tool, and 20% off Adobe’s Creative Cloud Photography Plan.
The big downside, for some at least, is that Flickr doesn’t support RAW files or, for that matter, any other file that isn’t an image. However, there are direct Lightroom and Aperture plug-ins to enable you to upload directly from these programs.
Flickr is really the only storage solution which is specifically geared towards social networking. However, with the rise of Instagram, Facebook and Twitter, and the emergence of competing cloud systems, Flickr as a platform feels a bit dated, both visually, and in term of its workflow, and its lack of support for RAW files and other media.
Pros Massive photo community and great for getting feedback
Cons Doesn’t support RAW files; feels a bit dated
We say Great for the social side, but not for long-term storage
Flickr gives you 1TB for free, but even the Pro version doesn’t support RAW files
