How to Backup Your Flickr Photos?

Out of all the other photo sharing websites, Flickr is the most popular one. This website allows you to upload images for free… of course to a certain limit. However, if you are willing to upload photos beyond that limit, you can pay a nominal fee and do that. It also facilitates you to keep your photos private or share with just a few friends or keep them public.

Flickr also allows you to join in various Flickr communities where you can interact with fellow group members and gather knowledge. These communities and forums also allows you to ask questions and clear doubts if any.

Another thing that makes Flickr one of the most popular photo sharing website is the facility to backup your photos. If you own a Flickr Pro account you can upload, store and access very large resolution files. This costs you around $25 per year.

Uploading photos on Flickr manually is a time-consuming task. It is better to use a photo uploading or photo backup tool to do it automatically. All you need to do is, create a Flickr photo folder on your system and upload all the images there. The software will automatically detect new entries in the folder it will upload them to your Flickr account. This process is fast and dead easy.

You can also use applications to backup your Flickr photos. These applications ask for your permission and if you wish to try this out, grant the required access. Later if you feel that you don’t want to use the application, you can revoke the access anytime. The most popular Flickr photo backup applications are Flickr Backup, Flump and FlickrTouchr

PicBackMan does exactly what it's supposed to. It's quick and efficient. It runs unobtrusively in the background and has done an excellent job of uploading more than 300GB of photos to 2 different services. After having lost a lot of personal memories to a hard drive crash, it's nice to know that my photos are safe in 2 different places.

LOVE this program! Works better than ANY other program out there that I have found to upload thousands of pictures WITH SUB-FOLDERS to SmugMug! Thank you so much for what you do! :) #happycustomer

I pointed PicBackMan at a directory structure, and next time I looked - all the photos had uploaded! Pretty cool. I use SmugMug and while I really like it, the process of creating directories in is pretty laborious when you need to make 80+ at a time. This was a breeze. Thank you!

PicBackMan was really easy to setup and has been running for 3 days now backing up all my locally saved photos to Flickr. My photos are really valuable to me so it's great to be able to have them easily backed up to a secure location.
