FLICKR: Great App for Photographers and Bloggers

.



.
With an average of 10 - 20 MB of new images that I shoot per day, over the years my computer space will be not sufficient to carry them all.  What better solution than to store it "in the clouds" via Flickr.

Flickr, the photo-hosting platform owned by Yahoo, turned 10 years old.  They focused on user photos before most people started carrying around high-quality cameras everywhere they went, and it offered free cloud storage before services were even invented.  Flickr users upload a million photos each day, and over the past year, the service has been busy. 
Last year Flickr started offering users 1 TB of free storage, and was adding more features, including larger storage, filters and photo books.

App for iPads
Photo-sharing platform Flickr rolled out an update, adding an iPad application that is iOS 8 and iPad Air 2 ready. Now Apple's tablets are becoming more and more photo-friendly , iPad  photographers just received another tool from Flickr.
However, the app isn't just for browsing and storing photos; it's also equipped with an in-app camera that can capture photos and videos on-the-go.  What's more: it includes Flickr's advanced editing tools, so photographers can directly  adjust without leaving the app.
The update comes on the heels of Apple's iPad Air 2 launch.  The company's latest flagship tablet is equipped with its best camera to date, a feature will likely produce more iPad photographers.
Flickr's new iOS 8-only app also takes advantage of the operating system's sharing extension, which makes it easier to share photos between Flickr and third-party apps. It also includes a new unified search and the ability to edit photo details.
