Flickr starts to delete photos – so which of your images are safe?

The home page of image gallery site Flickr

It's been trailed for months, but now the day is upon us: from 12 March 2019, Flickr will be deleting photos from Free accounts where the owners have uploaded more than 1,000 files. 

The image gallery and community site announced this move in November 2018, and granted an extension after first announcing a February 2019 deadline, but time is now up for Free account holders with large collections.
