Flickr was launched by Ludicorp.
Flickr’s service was widely used by photo researchers and bloggers to host images that they embed in blogs and social media platforms.
Yahoo! acquired Ludicorp and Flickr.
Yahoo! broadcasted that Yahoo! Photos would close down on September 20, 2007, and users were encouraged to migrate to Flickr.
Flickr upgraded its services from "beta" to "gamma" status.
Flickr upgraded upload limits on free accounts to 100 MB a month from 20 MB.
Flickr partnered with Getty Images.
Flickr had the first major site redesign, and introduced a "Justified View" close-spaced photo layout browsed via "infinite scrolling." Other features such as 1 terabyte of free storage for all users, a scrolling home page, and an updated Android app were introduced.
Yahoo! overhauled the site, adding a revamped Camera Roll, new upload feature, and upgraded the site's apps. The new upload application was made available for Macs, Windows, and mobile devices.
Flickr was transferred from its owner Yahoo to SmugMug with 100+ million accounts and billions of photos and videos.
