Re: Anyone else hacked off...

Half-heartedly use them as use Photobucket but will probably use them more now, seeing as it's an excellent method of storing a copy of my pics (although limited to only 1TB of space)

Re: Anyone else hacked off...

i think im going to like it, no more trawling thru pages to find a particular image, its much more photo orientated, puts me in mind of 500px but so much better. once you figure out where everything is then its actually not bad at all.

Re: Anyone else hacked off...

I use it a lot and my only minor issue is the use of full pics on the front
Page. Small ones would be better. Other than that. Its ok.

It needed something as it was dying on its Ass.
It may have been all at once but I am sure they will listen
to people with ideas of good changes to it if put through the right channles.

Its no good the mass's complaining if you don't say why
Or you become part of the problem. Get involved.

The new design is really bandwidth hungry, and one's photosteam is now a disorganised mish-mash.

Biggest issue though is Flickr's change of emphasis - photographers used to be paying customers, and the site existed for their benefit.

Due to a change in business model, advertisers are now the paying customers and beneficiaries. Flickr has been hacked about to appeal to the iphone generation; flickr isn't about photography any more, but about visitor throughput anc click-throughs.

I could probably live with the former if it wasn't for the latter.

I dunno, couple of years ago, this whole site would have fitted, and rattled in 1TB of space......

I only JUST have 1TB on my whole system... being that this is the network storage for the whole house.....
We have all our Music and Photo's on this one storage unit.

Of course, I have separate "Backup" external drives,
....but still, 1tb is about enough for anyone?....

Effectively a terabyte is a downgrade for me. As a pro member I had unlimited space.

Re: Anyone else hacked off...

Quite a few flickrites have made the move to ipernity.com

The site is much like old Flickr. The big difference is that it's run by a small independent team (7 people), they're on the side of the photographer and they want it to work. (Example: I suggested an improvement that would make life easier for me, nothing huge; 2 hours later I had an email from a real person to say they were looking at it, next day it was there, working!)

Trying ipernity - looks OK but probably won't be adopted as the free a/c only allows the last 200MB of images

Supported systems when 200kb floppy drives were the latest and best - took two people to lift the dual drive unit

Re: Anyone else hacked off...

The main issues for me when they did the change was speed and layout.

Now it has reverted to normal use flickr has speeded up and as for layout it has taken a week to get used to that also seems fine.

ipernity.com looks nice and I have opened an account buy no photos in it yet and good old photobucket which I do use from time to time seems more difficult and slower than flickr IMO.
