ATTENTION SWAG PHOTOGRAPHERS - As you're all aware we use Flickr as the host site to display photographs on the Blog. Flickr has recently been purchased by "SmugMug" and they are moving the goal posts especially for people with 1TB free accounts. If you fall into this category please view the new terms and conditions regarding free accounts as these will now be limited to 1.000 photos instead of the 1TB ceiling. If you have more than 1.000 pictures in your Flickr feed and wish to keep displaying your pictures on the Blog you will need to upgrade to a PRO account by January the 8th. regards IanG
