    "Worked flawlessly between Flickr and Google Picasa"

    March 25, 2009  |   By commorancy

    Pros

    When exporting and importing between Flickr and Google's Picasa, this application remembered all of the albums, descriptions and tags when importing them into Picasa. I didn't have to do any organizing at all. You can choose the albums to import.

    Cons

    The programmer has reversed export and import notation. He calls downloading images from Flickr as 'importing'. He calls uploading them to Google as 'exporting'. This notation is reversed. The application doesn't have a 'stop' button.

    Summary

    This application does what it claims. Yes, it does take quite some time for this process to complete depending on how many photos you are exporting and importing. I also haven't tried every possible combination of exports and imports. I've only tried from Flickr to Picasa. However, it did that work flawlessly and managed to keep all of the albums, tags and descriptions. I can't speak for any other services than these two, but in this specific instance it performed as it should.

    You will need an intermediate storage device to store the exported images for reimporting to your other service. The application doesn't tell you how much space you will need. So, just make sure to have around 2GB available for each 2000-3000 pictures that will be downloaded.

    When I ran out of space on Google, the program did not error out as I would have expected. Although, I knew that I would run out of space and purchased additional space from Google. Still, Migratr continued to chug along making you think something was happening. Digging through the error log tells a different tale, though. The application should ask you to stop uploading when it begins receiving errors... or at least offer a stop button.

    These issues, though, were minor and ultimately Migratr did what it was supposed to do... upload my image library to Picasa.
