Flickr has agreed to be acquired by SmugMug, the photography platform dedicated to visual storytellers.
Flickr made the announcement on 20th April, 2019.
SmugMug has a long history of empowering people who love photography and who want to improve their craft, making them a perfect fit for Flickr and our creative community. Nothing will change immediately with regard to your Flickr account.
The Flickr product and brand will live on under SmugMug ownership. Users will still access the same Flickr they know and love at www.flickr.com and via their mobile apps.
SmugMug and Flickr will remain separate brands and users will continue to have options for free and Pro Flickr accounts. Until Flickr notify you otherwise, you will continue to use your current login credentials.
