Why Transfer Flickr to Amazon Photos?

Flickr to Amazon Photos
Flickr to Amazon Photos

Flickr is an online service for storing photos and pictures. You can create albums and galleries, and mark photos for the public and friends or family to see. Professional members can get detailed statistics on how often their photos are viewed, favorited and commented on. Images can be categorized using keywords, added to groups, and licensed under many types of knowledge sharing.

Amazon Photos allows you to upload images (including RAW files) and videos from your desktop or mobile device. With just a few clicks, you can organize your photos with Albums, buy prints, and share your images with others. The Amazon Photos mobile app lets you back up all of your images on your phone to save space. If you're an Amazon Prime member, you get free access to Amazon Photos and the ability to upload an unlimited number of images.

Although both can store pictures, there are differences in functionality. Flickr focuses on high-quality image preservation and provides more advanced sharing services. Amazon Photos is more storage-oriented and is a great place to store a lot of pictures.

  • If you need to store a lot of pictures urgently, you can transfer the data from Flickr directly to Amazon Photos.
  • You can also transfer images from Flickr to Amazon Photos if you feel that the paid version of Flickr is not worth the money compared to the Amazon Photos Prime version.
