There's only one other option for backing up so many photos (technically it's not free, but easily worthwhile with the other benefits included), which is Amazon Prime. I've started backing up all my RAW files there and I continue to back up my finished JPGs at full size on flickr. In tandem I'm not sure the two can be beat for cloud photo storage and backup, especially with this new bulk downloading on Flickr. 

Actually, this past year I had 4 simultaneous catastrophic hard drive failures, which resulted in me losing a few years worth of photos. Flickr is one of the few places that had a large portion of my backup, and although most of it is just jpg I can still go back and recover a ton of my 5-star images at print quality. Can't recommend it enough.

I'd love to hear some opinions on Flickr's new stock marketplace for licensing. 51% payout seems like a bit of a joke to me when there are plenty of agencies out there that offer up to 70%, but it beats Getty, which is something. Wondering what their pricing will be like and just how often photos will sell. +Thomas Hawk do you have any thoughts thus far?

I just tweaked and added a bunch of new stuff to my portfolio before a big review tomorrow afternoon - what do you think? Open to notes on just about anything, in particular what I could change, add or drop. Let me know!
