Whether or not this guy's prediction comes true or not, it's just a pretty good idea to know how to get all your images out of Flickr. Like most of you, the only thing I use Flickr for is to save all my goofy images I use in forum posts and the likes but its still a good idea to snag them...you know, just in case.

Given that Yahoo has been losing money and Verizon (seriously, Verizon) picked up the company at a low-ball price, something has got to go. It could be Flickr. I doubt Verizon will dump your images, but you never know. None of us expected Google Reader to go away, but it did. As for Verizon and Flickr, here's my prediction: Flickr is an actively used brand, and Verizon is spending more and more of its energy selling phones that take pictures. So I would honestly be very surprised if you woke up one morning and found all your pictures gone.

Photo sharing sites are for for sharing.
Always keep local copies and backups of everything.

$4.8 Billion is a lowball price, wow? Flicker may be the most valuable asset they have.

I very much doubt this will happen.

Flickr is the only thing of value in the Yahoo portfolio. Buying Yahoo and shutting down flickr would be pretty silly.
