Greetings, Flickr members! Here’s what the Flickr team worked on and shipped out in May 2022.

What’s new

1. When a gift is given, the recipient will receive an email notifying them that they’ve received a gift.

2. They’ll also see a pop up wen they log in to their Flickr account, notifying them of the gift.

3. If they activate the gift, the Flickr Pro subscription will be added to their account. If they decline it, it’ll be removed from their account and they will no longer be able to view it. They’ll also have the option to activate or decline it later in their Account Settings.

Note: The gift giver will not receive any notification about the status of the gift.

4. The gifts will show up in Account Settings in the order they were purchased. Regardless to the gift type (week, month or annual), the recipient has a year to activate or decline it before it expires.

5. Once a gift is activated or given, it will show up in the Gift History section of a member’s Account Settings page.


(In the image above, the top section is what recipients will see, the bottom section is what givers will see. Recipients will never see how much their gift cost, givers will never see the status of a gift.)
