Free Flickr Pro Accounts for Non Profit Organisations

[This is now obsolete as from May 2013 Flickr has FREE accounts for ALL with 2TB of space.]

KHS has been using the Flickr (photographic upload) platform to make archival photographs and documents more "Accessible" to all. All images on this website are "stored" on the Flickr site. Clicking images will take you to the Flickr site, where it can be seen that images can be arranged into "sets" to show years or themes in an an easy to use organised fashion. Non Profit organisations that meet requirements can get almost free Flickr Pro accounts (allowing unlimited uploads).

See - Almost Free Flickr for Non Profits - for further details [Now Obsolete].
