Flickr as backup for your pictures

After I have lost several years of my pictures I started to use Google Picasa – to get unlimited space you have to agree that your pictures have to have specific pixel size.

Few month back – yahoo, specifically Flickr – changed few “key” settings – specifically size for your pictures – now you get 1TB.

So I was thinking to use Flickr as second backup place and pictures can keep their original size – they don’t need to be shrinked.

What needs to be done:

  • have account on Flickr
  • change default privacy settings for your account
  • change privacy settings for search engines (I want to hide them from search engines)
  • now upload your pictures 🙂
    • If you got your pictures in Picasa, use picasa2flickr addon and sent your pictures to Flickr directly from Picasa
