How to Import Photos From Flickr to Tumblr?

Many photo hosting websites offer a set of features designed to make this sharing easier. This includes Flickr, although you need a Flickr account to take advantage of the feature. In addition, keep in mind that whether you can share a photo or not depends on the settings chosen by its owner.
  1. Log in to both your Tumblr and your Flickr account. On the Flickr website, hover over your avatar to open the user menu, and then select "Settings."
  2. Click "Sharing & Extending."
  3. Click "More Sites," select "Tumblr" and, when prompted, click "Allow" to connect Flickr to Tumblr.
  4. Select the Tumblr blog to which you want to post Flickr photos, and then click "Next" to confirm the connection. If you have more than one blog on which you want to share photos, repeat the process from Step 3.
  5. Click the "Share" button on the photo you want to import to Tumblr, and then select the Tumblr blog on which you want to post it. Adjust the post options to your liking, and then click "Post."

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.

It's AWESOME!! I have tens of thousands of pictures...and they are now successfully uploaded to SmugMug, where they are safely backed up, and I can edit and organize them. If you are hesitating about using PicBackMan, hesitate no longer...try it...and you'll be glad you did!!
