Why Combine Flickr Accounts?
Flickr is a popular photo hosting service for professional photographers and amateurs to post and share their beautiful pictures. There is a community on Flickr, which makes it a little like Instagram. This community gives users a platform to follow those photographers they like and search for certain pictures they want.
With Flickr, users can upload each photo up to 200 MB and free users can add no more than 1000 items (with a limit of 50 non-public pictures or videos). Therefore, those with many photos to upload would sign up for another Flickr account to expand their free space. Once a user has more than one Flickr account, whether he/she can manage these Flickr accounts easily can be a problem.
So, it’s recommended to combine 2 Flickr accounts. In this way, you can manage 2 Flickr accounts efficiently without logging in and out frequently on the web. If you don’t know how to connect your Flickr accounts, you can refer to the following part to learn how to achieve this by using a practical and free service called MultCloud.
