Why Need to Transfer Photos between Two Flickr Accounts?


Nowadays, many people own a Flickr account to save and share their pictures on the Internet. Flickr is a great photo sharing site for annotating, curating, storing. Compared to other photo sites that compress your photos, Flickr stores and displays images at full-resolution. That's why many people prefer to transfer photos from Dropbox to Flickr.

Meanwhile, users can easily share their Flickr photos to SNS such as Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Pinterest, etc. So, you can share beautiful photos with your friends immediately via Flickr. What's more, there are few ads on Flickr and the user experience is very friendly.

If you intend to save videos, Flickr limits one video up to three minutes in length at 1080p resolution. Moreover, Flickr provides users with a range of basic photo-editing tools online, including all important redeye reductions. Due to these reasons above, Flickr has owned a large user base worldwide.

Although Flickr allows users to upload up to 1000 items, it may be still not enough for some people. So, they create more accounts and wonder how to transfer certian photos from one account to another for better management. And some people turn to Flickr Forum and ask:

  • I have a work Flickr and a personal Flickr. Is there a way to transfer files between two accounts?
  • I have an old free Flickr account before. Now I have a paid Yahoo! ID because I need the features in Yahoo! Mail Plus and I am getting rid of my old Yahoo! ID. I am wondering if I can create a new Flickr account and migrate the pictures from my old account to a new account. Is this possible?

So, in this article, you will learn how to move photos between two Flickr accounts via 2 useful methods. One is using a third-party service, MultCloud. The other is downloading and uploading. Now, read the following part to learn the details.
