How to Quickly Transfer Photos Between Facebook, Google+ and Flickr

When it comes to online sharing of photos, most of the user activity is centered around Facebook, and photo sharing sites like Flickr, along with Google+ (Picasa) being the latest platform for it. Most of us tend to use multiple services to share photos, and we end up using more time and internet bandwidth to upload same set of photos across all the websites. Not convenient at all.

Would it be nice if you could simply upload the photos to one service and transfer them to other in less time and without the loss of any extra bandwidth?

Social Photos is a simple online tool that makes photo transfer between Google+, Facebook and Flickr a quick drag and drop business. I know you are probably excited to see how it works, so let me not waste any more of your time and get to the point.

When you visit the Social Photos home page, you will see three boxes each dedicated to one of the above photo-sharing services. To get started, you will have to login to at least two of the services. Social Photos will not be able to see or store your password. You will be taken to the respective page where you can authorize your account.

Once you authorize the accounts, the tool will load all the albums you have uploaded. You can now simply drag and drop the albums from one box to another to transfer the photos. Social Photos will tell you that the transfer may take some time depending upon the server speed but in my case, it was lightning fast. To select individual photos, simple click on the album to expand it.

Once the transfer is complete, I recommend you take a look at the album permissions. All the albums I transferred from Facebook to Picasa (Google+) were saved as public albums, and thus I had to change the permissions to friends-only manually.

All in all, the tool is pretty amazing and there is nothing I found worth complain about. With this tool, I could transfer many albums from Facebook to Picasa in no time at all. Especially helpful for the ones who use a connection that offers limited bandwidth.
