Why Backup Flickr to Dropbox?
To Share Photos with Collaboration in Dropbox
Flickr is more like a social media rather than a typical cloud drive service. You can get great sharing experience by setting the privacy of photos and videos stored in Flickr. However, if you want to store and share your photos in a safer way, you’d better backup Flickr photos to Dropbox before sharing. Because Dropbox enables you to share photos with different level of permission while collaborating with your team by moving your Flickr photos to Dropbox shared folder.
To Backup and Store Flickr Photos with Other Files Together in Dropbox
Flickr only allows you to upload photos and videos to it up to 1000 pieces, and you could only upload each photo with the size up to 200 MB and each video with the size up to 1 GB. But Dropbox sets no limitation on file uploading while offering you 2 GB to 18 GB (after inviting your friends to register) free storage. You may still have to store some of your photos and videos in Dropbox when the storage of your Flickr account is already crowded.
So, why don’t you do Flickr to Dropbox migration so as to gather all your photos, videos, documents and other files together for better cloud file management? Please continue reading to learn how to backup photos from Flickr to Dropbox and also achieve Flickr Dropbox integration.
