Why transfer photos from Dropbox to Flickr

To answer this question, we should know about these two services. Dropbox is a famous cloud drive. It is a storage & synchronization cloud service that allows you to backup and sync all kinds of files: images, videos, documents, etc to cloud storage. When you create an account, you can get 2 GB free space of Dropbox. If you want to own more storage space, you have to pay.

Flickr is a famous picture & video hosting website where you can backup photos and videos and share to other people. Now Flickr has been powered by Yahoo! and it provides completely free 1TB of storage space for storing initially.

Now you see, the differences are obvious. If files you want to upload to cloud are photos or videos mainly, you can choose Flickr since it gives bigger free storage. If you use Dropbox before and the volume is full, you can move photos from Dropbox to Flickr to reclaim Dropbox space. Now that copying photos from Dropbox to Flickr is necessary, how to connect Dropbox to Flickr, or say, Flickr Dropbox integration is a new question.

Use MultCloud to transfer photos from Dropbox to Flickr

Unluckily, neither Dropbox nor Flickr can transfer file to the opposite side directly. Both officials do not develop such a tool or method. One solution is downloading photos from Dropbox to a place, then uploading to Flickr. However, for large data, this solution is a nightmare. Some third-party applications can accomplish this. here, I will focus on MultCloud, because it has some remarkable advantages - does not need to install, and offers multiple functions to let users sync, transfer or backup data easily and freely. Following are guides to move photos from Dropbox to Flickr.
