CNET Editors' review
There are a variety of photo-hosting sites on the Internet, each with its own pros and cons. Switching from one to the other isn't easy unless you have a little something to help you move your images between sites. Migratr might just be that little something. It's not perfect, but for the basic task of moving your photos en masse from one site to another, it's not bad.
The program's interface is straightforward, if not particularly attractive. The steps involved in migrating images are arranged in tabs numbered one through six. In the first step, users select the service from which they want to import images; the options include 23HQ, Flickr, Gallery2, Picasa, Phanfare, Photobucket, SmugMug, Zenfolio, and Zoomr. Migratr will automatically launch the authentication page for the selected site, letting users enter their username and password so that Migratr can access the images. From there, users simply click Import and select a destination location, and Migratr will download all of the images stored on the selected site. Therein lies one of the biggest drawbacks of Migratr; it does not let users select particular photosets, galleries, or albums to be downloaded, so you'll end up downloading all of your images whether you want to or not. Uploading the images to a different site is a similar process; simply complete the authentication, select the images, and wait for Migratr to finish the upload. The program has no Help file, but this wasn't a major drawback, as its use is pretty straightforward. Overall, we think Migratr is a great choice if you need a simple way to move all of your photos from one photo-sharing site to another, but if you want to be more selective, another option might be more appropriate.
Migratr installs a desktop icon without asking but uninstalls cleanly.

"Flawless transfer from one Flickr account to another"
Version: Migratr 1.06
-Quick install on Windows Vista
-Logged into and transferred all of my images (including filenames, titles & details) from one Flickr account to another one of my Flickr accounts.
-None. Worked as described.
Migratr worked perfectly for me and did everything I needed to do. It saved me a lot of time so I didn't have to manually re-upload each image and add new titles & descriptions.
