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.

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.
