Migrating from Flickr to Picasa Web

After joining Google+ this week, it was time to finally move my photos from Flickr to Picasa . Organizing everything in one location makes locating information quicker. Switching between Google documents and then to Flickr then back can be a bit tedious especially when you’re trying to complete a presentation deck.

I needed to find a program that can migrate my 13k photos quickly, efficiently, and with very little human interaction. I found Migratr which allows a user, who authenticates, to move  photos from Flickr to Picasa and even vice-versa! I found that Migratr will also migrate your metadata, including the titles, tags, descriptions and album organization.  This program works in other sites as well:  23HQ, Faces, Menalto’s Gallery, Phanfare, Photobucket, SmugMug, Zenfolio, Zooomr. I left this program running the whole night and voila! by morning all 13,000 photos have found their new home without me doing anything but the six steps that initially linked those two photo-sharing sites. Very cool.
