How to upload photos from Computer to Flickr?

Flickr is an online image and video hosting service which was created by Ludicorp in 2004. Flickr is a Vancouver-based company founded by Stewart Butterfield and Caterina Fake. Yahoo purchased Flickr for $35 million in March of 2005. Flickr allows you to backup photos at their original resolution size. When you share photos with your family & friends, they have the option to download the photos in original, high-quality or a smaller size so that they will take up less space on their computer. Flickr offers 1TB of storage space absolutely FREE.

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!!
