It seems like Flicker, the popular photo-sharing service owned by Yahoo, is all set to celebrate the Christmas with its users by offering a new offer on the app.

As per reports, Flickr is now offering three months of its Pro service for free. Pro accounts, currently, cost $24.95 per year and offer a host of advantages, including unlimited uploads, high-resolution downloads and the ability to post in up to 60 separate groups, and also uploading and playing unlimited HD videos.

The company has made these changes in an effort to boost interest in its platform and to reward those who have stuck with it over the years. It is likely an attempt to keep existing subscribers happy while competing to be the leading alternative to Instagram.

“Nice! If you’ve got a Flickr Pro account, head on over to Flickr and log in to extend for a free three months,” the official Twitter page states.

The company states that if anyone is a paid Pro member, the Pro expiration date will be extended by three months. Moreover, if the user is enrolled in an auto-renewal billing plan, the gift will be applied to the user’s account on the next billing date.

As far as the holiday gift is concerned, users will need to head to one of the several mobile apps (depending on the operating system – Android, iOS and Windows Phone) and they will automatically receive the holiday gift, with no other action necessary. Users can also claim the gift from their desktop by just clicking on the banner from the home page.

This is the latest from the photo-sharing service after a redesigned Flickr app for iPhone was introduced for users, a few weeks ago. The app added the highly anticipated photo filters some two years after the same was done by rival Instagram.

Flickr's new filters come just days after Twitter added its own filters to its iOS and Android apps and Instagram released a big update for its iOS client. While this could be viewed as an attempt to come at par with Instagram, the new changes have immensely helped the Yahoo-owned service.

Apparently, in a later update, Flickr also made some visual changes to its website, with the site's navigation bar being revamped with a streamlined design, which the company claimed leads to "a simpler and cleaner experience."
