Rogers Yahoo! customers say sayonara to Flickr Pro

As a Rogers Yahoo! customer (or know someone who is that doesn’t use Flickr), I have been enjoying a great perk for the last few years: Flickr Pro for free! However, I got this today:

Dear Rogers Yahoo! customer,

We are writing to inform you that on July 1, 2009, your Flickr Pro account included with your Rogers Hi-Speed Internet service will change to a free Flickr account. The free Flickr service has many of the same features as Pro, but is subject to some limits.

Your existing photos or videos will not be deleted as a result of this change. If you have more than 200 photos in the free Flickr account, only the most recent 200 are displayed. Other changes include:

  • 100MB monthly upload limit (10MB per photo)
  • 2 video uploads each month (max. 90 seconds and 150MB per video)
  • Only smaller (resized) images accessible (though the originals are saved in case you upgrade later)

If you enjoy the full flexibility and storage capacity of your current Flickr Pro account, you can maintain your Pro account by subscribing directly to the service for $24.95 (USD) a year. Subscribe before September 1, 2009 and get two months free. Click the link below to subscribe:http://flickr.com/upgrade

We want to thank you for being a Rogers Yahoo! customer. It is our pleasure to provide you with an enjoyable online photo experience.

Sincerely,
Rogers Yahoo! Hi-Speed Internet Customer Service

Must all good things come to an end?
