    I was wondering who here has a Flickr account? I've been a member for some time now and I like how I can see pics of zoos/animals from all over the world. It's also fun seeing the way people take pics of animals and the different perspectives.

    Here is the link to my photostream: Flickr: mstickmanp's Photostream

    I made a Flickr account a few months ago. At this moment it's full of pictures of the Antwerp Zoo, my home zoo :). Please take a look :)!

    Thanks! The aquarium is only 10 years old, so everything looks nice and new in there.

    Your photos are also nice. I really like the entrance of the Antwerp zoo, it's so detailed. The old Los Angeles Zoo used to have an entrance with animal statues, but when the old zoo closed for good most of the statues were stolen. Last year, the zoo managed to find the statues in a yard sale, so the zoo will be putting some of them around zoo so people could see them.

    Hope they will get back! The Antwerp Zoo is full of monuments and statues. It's a park full of details! Now it's a protected monument and they are very careful with everything. It has a very unique atmosphere because of that.

    I have a flickr account, ive just started using it.
    Main reason that I signed up for it, is that when searching for images, the first couple of pages were always from flickr. However, when I search for my photos (using the keywords that I entered in the flickr description), I still do not see my photos. I will keep on trying though. If any of you know how to "bump" this up, please let me know.
    My flicker account is Flickr: Chris Humphries1's Photostream
    my website is www.myPHOTOSontheWEB.co.uk

    I've just upgraded to a pro account on Flickr. I put larger versions of my better photos there, so there is a wider range of subjects than I post in the gallery here. Please have a look.

    I too have a new Flickr account, "World of Zoos" :

    You can see here 300 pictures of zoos (France, Germany, and even Singapore...)

    You will soon find out, because I will soon be updated (I have visited more than 100 zoos in the world...)

    Free flickr accounts are being restricted to 1000 items from the new year, with the oldest being purged automatically if your content exceeds that figure.

    Yes and the new pro accounts, that you will be obligated to use if you don't want to loose your photos and the valuable comments made by friends in them, will cost... 50€!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Compare with good old Flickr: the free account has 1 TB of limit!!!!!!!!!!!!! That can be a million photos of more... I had uploaded various thousands of photos and I still was under 1% of space limit.
    And before that, pro accounts costed 25€. And the most important: if your pro license finish, your photos was DON'T deleted, just remained invisible until you get a new pro account.

    Well done, SmugMug :mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad:

    I have less than 3 thousand items, but that is still a task to cull if I had any real need for flickr.
