How to Move Videos from Photobucket to Flickr?

Flickr is an image and video sharing service which was created by Ludicorp in 2004. It offers 1TB of free storage space which is limited to 200MB per photo and 1GB per video. If you upgrade your free account to paid account then you can upload unlimited photos and videos to your Flickr account. It is useful to see statistical analysis of the traffic which you are receiving on your photos. Photobucket is an image and video hosting website which was founded by Alex Welch and Darren Crystal in 2003. Photobucket offers 2GB of free storage space to upload photos and videos. Photobucket individual video uploads are limited to 20 minutes in length and 500 MB or less in size.

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!!
