Flickr and image distribution

obama yeti flickr rageI’m sure many of you all in the photographic industry (as well as you general Flickr users) have heard about the various news about Flickr in the last couple months.  One I thought that we should note is that it is wise not to upload your high res files to Flickr because of some of the open API issues that have been exposed lately. This Week in Photography has a good post from earlier this month that includes several links to other articles explaining in more detail, but the bottom line is that it’s wise not to upload your high res no matter what settings you have in your Flickr setup.
