Flickr Pro Renewal

In the next few days, Flickr Pro I have with Lala will be expired (see our Flickr Photostream). I haven’t decided whether I renew it before or after the expiry date. I am curious about this. About this renewal, Flickr explains:

If your Pro account expires, don’t panic! None of your or videos have been deleted!
This means instead of enjoying the super-duper capacity of your Pro account, you’re now subject to the limits of a free account. If you again, all of your photos will be waiting for you.
Any of your sets that disappeared will magically reappear when you renew or upgrade.

Again, I’m curious about this. There are more than 3,000 photos and 80+ photo sets. Is it really safe to leave it expired to see the effect? I don’t know. The free account only has three sets, which sets will be visible? I’m curious. At the same time, I don’t want to take a risk. We’ll see…

Well, if I understand Flickr service correctly regarding to the upgrade, I will not have my old photos deleted. They’re only hidden.
Yes, it’s 3,000+ … because I use Flickr as my backup draft for photos. :)

hallo sir.. i’m confuse to choose flickr or picasa. I’m not fotografer but have thousands photos and videos at my hardisk need to upload to internet. Yesterday i got message from flickr that my photos has been reached limit of flickr and must upgrade to pro.
Today i consider to using picasa. but i don’t know what is the best photo service, picasa or flickr. Is picasa really free or we must upgrade it too like flickr?
