news from Flickr.com change for pro members

looking for a place to post photos, in addition to the forums, ?

I just got this email from Flickr.com:
QuoteQuote:
We’re tripling our maximum display size for Flickr Pros up to 6K so you can show your photos off in all their pixel perfect glory. The maximum display size of photos is increasing from 2048px on the longest side to 6144px (6K). Now you’ll be able to show off every single detail perfectly on all the latest monitors and displays.

The new display size will be available to all Flickr Pro subscribers next week.

What photos are affected

All new and previously uploaded photos from Flickr Pros with an original size larger than 6K will automatically be displayed in the largest size possible on Flickr, or the largest size set in your preferences. Smaller photos will be displayed in the largest size possible for the original media. The maximum display size for free members is unchanged at 2K.

Settings and controls

We love big, beautiful photos on Flickr and hope you’ll always choose to share them at the largest size we support — but of course, your specified preferences will always be respected: you can set the maximum display size in your account, as well as control who can download photos.
This is also a great time to remind you of our partnership with Pixsy, a monitoring service that can identify where photos are being used online, and give you tools to enforce your copyrights. Flickr Pros get 1,000 monitored images and 10 takedown notices free.
We’re all working to make Flickr better

We have been busy! In case you missed it, here are some of the other fixes and new features we’ve launched recently:
• Support for displaying previously uploaded photos at our maximum display sizes (was 2K, now 6K, with this release)
• Support for 10 minute videos for Pros
• Flickr Prints
• Camera Roll is back!
The Flickr Team

I have mine throttled to 1600 on the longest side to avoid piracy and even then, I am mildly uncomfortable since that size will print quite nices to 8". I suppose, I should craft a watermark and start using it.

(...yes, I have had images scraped from Flickr to be displayed as other than my work elsewhere...)

A fair point. Do you sell your photos much? I never do, personally, so it matters less to me.

Watermarks are just so ugly though, don’t you think?

Flickr Pro to increase maximum photo size to 6K

An email just in from Flickr. For comparison, pictures from the K1 are 7360×4912 uncropped.

Well that's cool. I haven't looked at my email, so wasn't aware of this increase. Could be good. Or not, ha!

High time they did something about their maximum display sizes on Flickr to reflect what digital cameras are able to deliver today. For comparison, all images uploaded to my paid-for SmugMug account - and Flickr is owned by SmugMug - can be displayed in original size if I permit that.

Sure, why not? The sooner Flickr can get you to use up you space allotment the sooner they can try to convince you to switch to a paid plan.

On the other hand - You need to store 6K images? Go to a paid plan.
