SmugMug acquires Flickr

SmugMug has acquired Flickr, a move that brings together two big photo-sharing sites.

According to a Flickr mail, “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. With SmugMug, we’ll continue to focus on you, the Flickr members who inspire us all with your work.”

Flickr users can still use their existing accounts until May 25, 2018.  Those who do not want to transfer their account and data to SmugMug must download the photos and videos they want to keep and delete their account by that date.

 

Otherwise, their Flickr account and data will be transferred to SmugMug and governed by SmugMug’s Terms and Privacy Policy.
