How to Move Photos from Google Drive to Flickr?

Flickr is a popular photo and video sharing application where you can backup photos and videos to share with family and friends. Once you have uploaded photos to Flickr, you can easily manage them by using 'Flickr photo organizer'. If you have hundreds of photos then they are organized into events. 

Flickr allows you do sorting, searching and set making to get your photos together. Google Drive is a cloud storage service which is used to backup photos, videos, and documents. It allows you to manually download photos to a different location on your computer. The maximum download file size is 2 GB. If the file size is larger than 2 GB, you will see a message with the list of files that are not included in the zip file.
