Want an easy way to transport your photos off Flickr?  Well, one Twitter user (@Digeratii) found a simple web service which allows you to sync your Flickr photos to your Facebook account.  The service is called PhotoSync and is dead simple to setup.  Simply go to the website and give the service access to your Facebook and Flickr accounts and you’re able to sync.

You can customize the settings which allow you to control which Flickr sets you would like to sync.  So if you didn’t want all of your Flickr photos on Facebook, you can easily sync only individual sets of photos.  Additionally, you can configure Facebook privacy settings for the photos being synced.  However, by default, it will use your default privacy settings on Facebook.

Is PhotoSync free?  Yep.  The service is 100% free.  Check it out today.


  1. I’ve been trying out Photosync today and it keeps returning Internal Service Error messages. After I left work, I realized that it did upload the first photo set I selected, but it still won’t let me back in to continue. I’m looking for a more reliable alternative.

  2. Unfortunately the service is probably overwhelmed with users and their servers are unable to handle the load.  At this time I don’t know of any alternative to PhotoSync.  If I find one I’ll be sure to post about it.
