These reacted strongly against this change and Instagram had to rectify but then created some utilities that can still be useful as Freethephotos of which speak below.
The purpose of Freethephotos is simple: we migration Instagram photos to Flickr. This is done through a simple service that is very easy to use because you simply must access to the website, log in our Instagram and Flickr accounts and let the system work to perform the migration of our photos.
The photos will be migrated in a new Flickr album called ‘Instagram’ that may subsequently be renamed or edited. The service has some limitation but it should not be too hard except for intensive users of Instagram is that you can migrate only the latest 10,000 uploaded photos.
