In recent years, people have increased their collection of image and video files, leading to a growing need for storing them. Most people do not prefer deleting files, but when storage becomes full, they are left with no choice but to delete some files to free up space.

At this point, people often begin searching for storage that offers unlimited space. Google Photos and Flickr are two specialized platforms that provide photo and video storage services. While Google Photos allows unlimited photo storage, larger video files may take up space, requiring users to pay a monthly fee of around $20 for additional space. In contrast, Flickr offers unlimited storage space for a few dollars per month, making it more price-competitive, yet people still choose Google Photos as their preferred file storage solution.

So, if you want to use Google Photos, how do you transfer photos from Flickr to Google Photos?

  1. Open a web browser on your computer and go to the Flickr website (www.flickr.com).
  2. Log in to your Flickr account using your username and password.
  3. Once you are logged in, click on the "You" tab at the top of the page to access your photos.
  4. Select the photos you want to transfer to Google Photos by clicking on the checkbox next to each photo. You can also select an entire album if you prefer.
  5. After selecting the photos, click on the "Download" button at the bottom of the page. This will download a zip file containing your selected photos to your computer.
  6. Once the zip file is downloaded, go to the Google Photos website (photos.google.com) and sign in to your Google account.
  7. On the Google Photos homepage, click on the "Upload" button located at the top right corner of the page.
  8. In the file selection window that appears, locate and select the downloaded zip file from Flickr.
