Whether you’re a free Flickr user or a pro account holder, you are entitled to receive a gift from Flickr – the gift of a pro account for three months! But, hurry as the promotion ends on January 4th.

All you need to do to activate your free gift from Flickr is to log in to your Flickr account via a mobile application or the desktop. Mobile users will automatically receive the gift with no action required. If you use the desktop, a banner will show you the offer of three months for free and all you need to do is accept the deal. It really couldn’t be easier!

If you’re a free user, you’ll benefit from the features of a pro account for the next three months. Features of pro accounts include unlimited uploads and storage, the ability to see all of your photos and to always have access to the high definition photos and video. There are also tools to replace photos and view statistics about photo views.

Flickr Pro users can also take advantage of the free offer, as their renewal date will simply change to reflect the addition of the free three months. There is no hassle involved in activating the gift at all.

Have you tried Flickr Pro before? How are you enjoying your free three month gift?

      Sorry to hear that! They didn't make that clear in the gift FAQ, and I already have Pro so I would never have noticed. Surely you can make use of the unlimited uploads for the next three months though? :)

    The worst part of flickr is the yahoo-login. Seriously, I guess only 1% of flickr users actually have a yahoo-id for other purposes than accessing flickr. Again and again I forget the ID or the password for this one. Retrieving it is a long painful process.

      I agree. My husband signed up once and promptly forgot all of his details.

    It is a cool gift from Flickr and I will use it at it's most. I really wanted to try their pro features someday and that's the occasion.
