Step 3: Once you have made your selections, click on the upload button, this should take you to the Flickr authorization page, where you will have to give permission to Twitpickr to be able to access your Flickr account.

Twitpickr is definitely a service you should use, if you have been regularly uploading and sharing images through Twitpic and want to move them all to your Flickr account, without having to reupload them to Flickr.

  1. I’m doing it now – handy as Flickr has a lot more functionality, although I like Twitpic’s intergration with TweetDeck so I’ll continue to use both.

    Only thing to note is that TwitPickr can only move your 25 most recently uploaded images, and it can’t do anything about it. I assume this is an API issue with either Twitpic or Flickr.
