Why Transfer Google Photos to Flickr?

When it comes to online photo sharing, Flickr and Google Photos are not new to us at all. When Google Photos was announced in 2015, Google promised unlimited photo storage space for free. However, Google on Nov. 12, 2020 announced the end of free online unlimited storage for Google Photos. Starting June 1, 2021, all high-definition photos uploaded to Google Photos will count toward the 15 GB of free storage space provided by a Google account.

Flickr has been around for a long time and used to be known as one of the best online image hosting and video hosting service, which allows you to upload photos and videos to share with others. Users can store 1,000 videos or photos for free.

As Google Photos ended unlimited free storage space, many users may be looking for an alternative to Google Photos. At this time, Flickr may be the best choice, because it has no quality restrictions on uploaded pictures (it will not force a reduction in picture quality).

Step 5. Browse and select the photos you want to upload. Click the "Open" button to upload photos to Flickr.


  • When downloading pictures, your browser will prompt you to save a .zip file, click "Save" and specify a location to download. It is best to unzip the downloaded zip file before uploading it.
  • In addition to the above uploading way, you have another option for uploading photos, namely "drag-and-drop". You only need to drag the downloaded photos directly from your computer to a location in your Flickr account.)

But, no one would like to download all things from Google Photos and then re-upload them to Flickr especially when there exist numerous pictures. So, MultCloud --- the FREE online cloud file manager is suitable here to move Google Photos to Flickr easily and quickly.


As you can see, MultCloud can help transfer Google Photos to Flickr in just 4 steps, which takes you out of the trouble of downloading and uploading. In addition to "Cloud Transfer", MultCloud also has an explorer-type function and "Cloud Sync".

For the explorer-type function, it’s like online Windows Explorer, you can do operations including "Upload", "Download", "Copy", "Share", etc. as you do through its official website. More importantly, it supports remote upload to the cloud. For example, if you want to upload to Google Drive from URL to save local space, you can make full use of it.

For "Cloud Sync", allows you to create sync relationships across clouds directly. If you want to sync Google Photos to Google Drive directly, "Cloud Sync" can give you a hand.
