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

WARNING only just realised its almost pointless turning off #geotagging in goog #android photo app if you have goog #locationhistory turned on #firstworldproblem #spooky #toocleverbyhalf @smugmug #flickralt #flickrip

only just realised its almost pointless turning off #geotagging in goog android photo app if you have goog location history turned on and you are using google photo backup

thats because goog photos matches timestamps from your location history against your photos to auto geotag them ! and if you are google maps contributor it then asks you to add them to goog maps

and thats how i discovered goog photos auto geotagging

i think goog should add geofences like @smugug @flickr used to do

finally after 3 hrs ive managed to add photos from the other side of the world to #googmaps #flickalt #flickrip

finally after 3 hrs ive managed to add photos from the other side of the world to #googmaps #flickalt #flickrip

basically the documentation

there is no ADD PHOTO button you have to add photos manually

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
