I have been using a Flickr Pro account for a few years, but find it really annoying that I don't maintain a local offline record of my albums and metadata with this. So I've decided to move to Picasa - where I have an offline app to set up, edit and then upload photos and albums. The challenge is that I have around 100 albums in Flickr and want to get them across to Picasa.
- Do I need to use a Flickr downloader to put them all in a folder and then add them to Picasa?
- Is there a way I can match the uploaded files with the local files on my computer so I don't end up with a load of duplicates?
- Can I transfer the metadata (e.g. geolocation) across? If so, how?
Hope you can help because my only other method is to do it all manually!
