At some point, Tumblr will offer paid, “plus” features for its blogging service. Or at least that’s the plan that founder David Karp has always talked about.

But this isn’t it: Tumblr is NOT going to start charging its users $39 per month for “tumblr.addict,” a supposed feature that would allow someone to upload an unlimited number of photos per day.

A concerned Tumblr power-user — OK, my father — submitted this in a panic today; it’s an alleged screenshot he found on someone’s Tumblr.

It’s a fake, Tumblr’s Karp confirms. “Does that look like anything we’d design?”

Premium features are a good idea for Tumblr — we wish they’d roll out things like one-step domain registration sooner than later. But $40 a month for unlimited photo uploads is way too expensive, considering that even Yahoo’s (YHOO) Flickr charges just $25 per year for its pro accounts.
