I know, I know, Flickr isn't dead. According to some, they're just being reasonable. In any case, Smugmug's acquisition of Flickr means that Flickr free accounts (which formerly allowed 1 TERABYTE of photo and video hosting) will be limited to 1,000 uploaded photos.
I imagine this will break many story maps once Flickr/Smugmug starts slowly deleting these photos. I know mine will. Here is their announcement:
This is what it says "
Free accounts will soon be limited to 1,000 photos or videos. Flickr isn’t Flickr without the contributions and participation of our free members, and we remain committed to a vibrant free offering.
If you are a free member with more than 1,000 photos or videos, you will have ample time to upgrade to Pro (for 30% off your first year) or download your photos and videos.* Read more about this decision.

Questions: Does Esri have a good solution for photo hosting that will integrate with Story Maps and other ArcGIS Online areas? Since Google Picasa is dead, will Esri use Google Photos as a solution (or is Google Photos not sharing-friendly enough)?
