How to Move Photos from Photobucket to Flickr?

Flickr is an online photo management and sharing application where you can backup photos and videos. Flickr allows you to organize your photos into albums and sets. It stores all the photos and videos in 'Photostreams' and it can be displayed as a 'slideshow', 'detail view', 'justified view' or a datestamped archive. Photobucket is an image hosting and video hosting website which is widely used for both personal and business purposes. It offers 10GB of bandwidth for sharing and linking, unlimited access to Photobucket’s editing, slideshow & Story features. If you upgrade your free account to paid account then you can use unlimited bandwidth.

Here are the steps to Move Photos from Photobucket to Flickr:

  1. Go to & sign into your account.
