So, it’s official. SmugMug has decided to acquire Flickr from Yahoo!.

Here’s the news!

We’re excited to announce that Flickr has agreed to be acquired by SmugMug, the photography platform dedicated to visual storytellers.

Nothing will change immediately with regard to your Flickr account. You will still access Flickr with your current login credentials and you will have the same Flickr experience as you do now. We will continue to work to make your Flickr experience even better.

Who cares? I stopped using Flickr the day I heard they would be selling it. But I had totally no idea this will come so early.

Well, it does come with a perk, though.

I will finally be able to download all photos at once.

Good luck with that SmugMug!
