latest cutoff dates from @smugmug on the @flickr #shutdown 8-jan-19 and 5-feb-19 #flickralt #flickrip

latest news from @smugmug on the @flickr #shutdown #flickralt #flickrip including a redefinition of the word ample

If you are a free member with more than 1,000 photos or videos, you will have ample time to upgrade to Pro or download your photos and videos.*

*Free members with more than 1,000 photos or videos uploaded to Flickr have until Tuesday, 8 January 2019, to upgrade to Flickr Pro or download content over the limit. After 8 January 2019, members over the limit will no longer be able to upload new photos to Flickr.

After 5 February 2019, free accounts that contain over 1,000 photos or videos will have content actively deleted—starting from oldest to newest date uploaded—to meet the new limit.

alternatives you could try are

  • 500px
  • everalbum
  • goog photos
  • imgur
  • shoebox
  • yandex

its so sad that @smugmug have killed flickr now you have to use a dozen free services to get the power that @yahoo @flickr once was #flickralt #flickrip #photobackup #photosharing

so exactly how much data will @smugmug be decimating on @flickr next month #smn #flickralt #flickrip

i can only speak personally but they for me will be decimating 12 years of my social media blogging (1000 wordpress posts) and photo documentation work

how i saved 14 years worth (42G) of @flickr photos from the clutches of @smugmug by using @cloudsfer together with @googleuk #googledrive #googleone #googlephotos and #googleshrink #cloud #photo #backup #flickralt #flickrip

as you may know @smugmug will be DELETING most (apart from your latest 1000) of your @flickr photos next month BUT if you act quickly you can save your flickr photo collection (however big) by using Cloudsfer to copy them into Google Drive

get a Cloudsfer account connect it to your flickr account and create a Cloudsfer photo migration plan to google drive

you can then optionally use google shrink to convert your google drive (and google one) photos into an (unlimited) google photos backup

Systems Used

Total cost £50 (only because I had to transfer more than 5G & 15G of data)

I have just saved over 32,000 photos (42G of data) from next months @smugmugs @flickr eradication program using less than 1% of my broadband bandwidth

so @smugmug @flickr its not your #pricing its your #attitude thats the problem @cloudsfer @googone #cloud #photo #backup #sharing #smn #flickralt #flickrip

ive now spent $44 on @cloudsfer (for 50G bandwidth) and £15 (with £4 rebate) on @googone (for 100G storage) to save the 35,000 photos you will be deleting from my @flickr accounts next week

note to flickr users if you want to SAVE your @flickr photos from the @smugmug  incinerator you will need to use

if you have less than 5G then it will be completely free

 

so lets try again after @multcloud failed to transfer my 22,000 photos from @smugmug @flickr #cloud to @googphotos #flickralt #flickrip

so lets try again after @multcloud failed to transfer my 22,000 photos from @smugmug @flickr #cloud to @googphotos #flickralt #flickrip according to alternativeto.net nultcloud have have 9 competitors

https://alternativeto.net/software/multcloud/?license=free

so lets try them out before smug mug destroy 21,000 of my 22,000 photos in 10 days time

ok so some of those arent real alts dont support flickr and arent free so lets focus on

 

UPDATE 26 dec 18 10:10 am

out of these cloudsfer seems closest to multcloud but only lets you xfer to goog drive but not goog photos

UPDATE 26 dec 18 10:20 am

starting sync now

are you running out of goog unlimited photo storage space ? @flickr #flickralt #flickrip

are you running out of goog unlimited photo storage space ? then goto

to check how much disk space you have used

maybe you have accidently been uploading your photos in FULL RES (goog photos does not allow UNLIMITED FULL RES backups) ?

if you have you can compress / convert / shrink them to a lower res by going to

then clicking RECOVER STORAGE however you can only do this ONCE a day !

NOTE :

Photos or videos will not be changed to High quality if you’ve uploaded them using:

  • Google Drive
  • Your Pixel
  • Your Pixel 2 or 3 during your Original quality offer period

some more @flickr #flickralt #flickrip photo site gotchas with @500px @everalbum @pexels and @shoebox

discovered even more @flickr #flickralt #flickrip photo site gotchas from 500px, everalbum, imgur, pexels and shoebox

some sites only let you import (from flickr) via the mobile app, some of the sites only let you upload via the mobile app, some dont accept pictures < 4M and some of them dont allow PNGs

flickr really WAS the ultimate solution before @smugmug killed it #flickrip
