@bobstechsite I'm looking for a way to mirror what my flickr once was, not an alternative, but thanks.
@Greg I haven't kept up with development, but I was always interested in MediaGoblin.
@Greg "Franklin Street", I haven't heard that in a while...
@cstanhope I was hoping someone would get it :) Also, it's the only occurrence in our instance's known universe :)
@nobody looks like a great option! Thanks! Only bad thing: "No videos at the moment" :(
There are a few suggestions in the mefi thread about the change that more recent including flickr's own export tool
@nobody well... that didn't work. Once I got it all auth'd with my account the --downsync failed due to... it being damn old and every single one of it's node deps being deprecated :(
Crap. I'm so sorry I wasted your time with that
@nobody s'alright, I should have bailed early after every npm dependency was a WARN :)
@Greg FreeNAS and Plex.
@Greg several solutions are listed at https://www.archiveteam.org/index.php/Flickr
Also, from https://www.flickr.com/account you can request a data archive which should contain all your photos and videos, profile data and such.
That way you can at least fairly simply sync your photos/videos to a different platform with sync options. Not sure yet if the archive contains any metadata such as comments, title and description though. Will let you know once my archive is ready (and I've freed up space to download it).
I guess I don't have to worry given I don't plan to upload anything new to flickr in the future and all of my photos are CC:BY-SA:
@Greg I’m on the fence about flickr. They’ve had a lot of change in the last couple years. Why are you not continuing with them?
@Greg After reading a post from the SmugMug founder (and new owner of Flickr) I renewed my Flickr Pro.
@Greg I am interested as well.
social.coop is a cooperatively-run corner of the Fediverse. The instance is democratically governed by its members, who generally share an interest in the co-op model, but topics of discussion range widely.
Our instance is supported by sliding scale contributions of $1-10/mo made via Open Collective. You must have an active Open Collective account to apply for membership; you may set one up here
