Flickr has updated the pricing of their paid Pro plans.
One year plan remains at USD 24.95. Two year plan is now a bit cheaper at USD 44.95.
They have added a three month plan for USD 6.95.
I like the idea of a three month plan as it would come handy when you need to access your Flickr archive in case you have moved on to a different platform for your photos.
I have personally moved from Flickr to Picasa. I did manage to get back my photos from Flickr using SocialFolders but I still wait for the day when Google would offer a direct import feature to import my entire Flickr archive properly directly from Yahoo servers.
