How do I transfer my photos from Flickr to Picasa? [closed]

I have been using a Flickr Pro account for a few years, but find it really annoying that I don’t maintain a local offline record of my albums and metadata with this. So I’ve decided to move to Picasa – where I have an offline app to set up, edit and then upload photos and albums. The challenge is that I have around 100 albums in Flickr and want to get them across to Picasa.

  • Do I need to use a Flickr downloader to put them all in a folder and then add them to Picasa?
  • Is there a way I can match the uploaded files with the local files on my computer so I don’t end up with a load of duplicates?
  • Can I transfer the metadata (e.g. geolocation) across? If so, how?

Hope you can help because my only other method is to do it all manually!


There’s a tool called Migratr, which makes it easy to transfer your pictures from Flickr to Picasa or vice versa.
