Keep me apprised. I am still on Flickr, but fortunately I have most, if not all, of my pictures on my hard drive. I, too, am afraid of submitting completely to our Google overlords. But at this point it seems inevitable…

Right now it seems that PhotoGrabbr
was the only one to actually download all the images and the metadata belonging to them. The information regarding the sets
was lost in the process, however. That’s not good.

Ehe, that doesn’t sound like a rational decision. Do you really think google will never close any service it provides?

Hehe, of course not. I dislike services that lock you and your data in. But even if they do not – like Flickr and Google – it takes tools and technology to actually move them around. This lack of tools has been nagging at the back of my mind for a while, now. I just needed an excuse to spend a nerdy day investigating my options.
As far as rational decisions go, it was certainly a very bad decision to spend a Sunday in front of the monitor instead of going out!
