After this week’s public outage over Instagram’s terms of service, Flickr has decided to throw out three months of free access to their “Pro” service.

The company has been slow to offer a solution to the growing threat of Instagram, only just recently updating their iPhone app with the ability to take photos from your device’s camera and apply filters. That may have been too little too late to compete with Instagram in the long run on the iPhone, but they’re likely to gain a few users looking for an Instagram alternative. Flickr has always been known for respecting users’ rights to their photos, offering many options to display copyright on each photo posted.

Pro Flickr accounts are given the ability to upload unlimited photos and videos, browse ad-free, view account stats, and more. The three month offer normally goes for $6.95, but fear not, no credit card is required, so you won’t have to worry about cancelling the service or being charged. You’ll need an existing Yahoo or Facebook account to acquire a Flickr account.
