Launched back in 2004, Flickr has suffered under years of neglect from owner Yahoo, and the sale of the company to telecom giant Verizon hasn't helped. But it still remains a great place to stash your shots, providing a remarkable 1TB of space for free (with ads) for .99 a month, or .99 a year without ads. Subscribing also gets you 20 per cent off a yearly subscription to the Adobe Creative Cloud Photography Plan, or 15 percent off the more comprehensive Creative Cloud subscription. Flickr also offers a great selection of tools, extensive tagging features and support for both viewing and downloading photos at a variety of resolutions (including, unusually, the full original size).
A very easy drag-and-drop system allows you to organize albums of your photos and collections of photos from you and other photographers. Once you have created an album of photos you like, you can print a 20-page photo book for .95 (plus 50 cents each extra page). Overall, Flickr is our top pick and Editor's Choice award winner, thanks to its massive amount of storage and a simple, clean interface that makes it a joy to use. Although Yahoo is in turmoil, Flickr still remains the best option for serious shooters.
