Use IFTTT to copy your Instagram photos to Flickr

With the new and improved Flickr out and their huge amount of storage I decided to give them another chance. I haven’t used Flickr that much over the past few years so am jumping back in.

One cool little trick that I wanted to share with everyone is using IFTTT to Sync my images from Instagram to Flickr automatically. If you haven’t heard of IFTTT before it’s an awesome site that stands for If This Then That and is a really cool free site to use. It gives you the ability to hook in many different web services together when a predefined action takes place. Just like the name you tell it If this happens Then do This. In the Flickr example you can tell it to look for anytime you upload a new Instagram photo and then automatically upload that photo to Flickr. There are tons of pre made “recipes” that people have created that you can use and many web services you can connect to.


There are lots of cool other things you can do like tell it to email you the weather report for the next day in the evening or to update your Twitter photo when your Facebook profile photo is updated. Just by searching for Flickr in their current recipes it comes back with over 2000 different things you can do with Flickr!

Check out the site here and start having some fun:
