How to upload SmugMug photos and videos to Flickr?

SmugMug is an online photo & video storage and sharing service that provides users with unlimited storage space. SmugMug makes it really easy for users to store, share & edit their photos online. SmugMug was launched in the year 2002 and since then it has been one of the premium online photo & video sharing services. SmugMug also migrated to the cloud starting with Amazon S3 for storage & backup purpose. However, there are various conscious users who do not rely on just one backup service to backup all their photos, videos, documents etc. They prefer to use a combination of backup services and media to safeguard their photos and videos.

One such service, which many people think of as a good and a reliable source to backup & store Photos, is Flickr. And with the recent announcements of 1 TB free storage space, it has become more popular. So, if you are amongst the many who wish to migrate their whole photo collection from SmugMug to Flickr, PicBackMan is here to help.

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.
