    Transfer from SmugMug to Flickr

    Files transfer from SmugMug to Flickr

    Anybody knows how to do it, if ever possible ?


    Can I trust this ??

    I am afraid of doing this because of cookies, tojan horses and all that stuff. We give them the way to get in our accounts...

    I downloaded it and checked the file with Kasperski and didn't find a problem; but that doesn't mean there isn't a problem because it is hard for security to check compressed files.

    Before you download it Antonio, first set a restore point and ensure you have adequate security. If something goes wrong you can restore and then do a full scan.

    I'm not going as far as installing it because I don't need it but I think maybe that is when you find out if it is ok or not, I would prefer to install an ftp client on firefox such as fireftp and upload from the pc. cheers

    Thank you Steve
    I think I will ask Sumg to send me the CD with the images... Far safer.
    Or - and I am seriously considering the option - I'll keep both.

    If you are running OSX on the nice shiny new iMac do not give it a second thought. If you are running Windows (God forbid) then be wary. Were you thinking of ditching SmugMug?

    Thank you Steve

    I have asked SmugMug directly and the answer is here.

    Windows ? Excuse me: what is that ?

    I will be using - for this operation - the MacBook while I work on the magnificent 27" iMac.

    In fact I am not intending to drop SmugMug. The thing is that my page as it was, had a very high Bounce Rate ( about 80% ) which I would like to get lower.
    For that, my son has done a customized page in WorldPress which looks pretty good as you will be able to see if you please.

    It is only in Portuguese and I hope to have organized with many page views...
    What do I expect to earn ? Nothing. Ridiculous maybe but I do it most for fun and pleasure.

    Cheers

    Very useful information. The Firefox add-on looks particularly useful. Many thanks for making us aware of it

    Hello everyone.

    If you have a suspicious file, it is possible to upload it to http://www.virustotal.com. This is a website that checks uploaded single files against the most common AV products. Of course there is a higher posibillity to get a false positive if the file is scanned with over fourty different AV products.

    Relating to that site this file does not have any virus nor malware in it.
    Here are the results:

    And with you ? Anyone tried or using it ?
