Wow, pretty big news in this announcement… how many of you have had a Flickr account for the past 15 or more years?? According to the news, SmugMug and Flickr Unite to Form the World’s Most Influential Photography Community
Following the close of the transaction, the brands will continue to operate as separate entities with the shared goal of providing photographers with both a place to fit in and a place to stand out. SmugMug and Flickr believe that all photographers—from the hobbyist to the prosumer to the professional—belong together.
Established in 2002 as one of the first photo storage and sharing services, SmugMug is home to millions of passionate photographers and billions of secure photographs. The SmugMug platform provides photographers with website designs that offer a safe, easy and convenient way to share, showcase and sell their stories. SmugMug gives photographers complete control over who accesses their photos, and provides robust e-commerce features that make it easy to turn passion into profit.
I’ve shared thousands of photos on my Flickr and have been an account holder since almost Day 1. Here’s a photo album from a recent Esri DevSummit
