How To Transfer Photos from Facebook to Google+

It's easy to move your photos from FaceBook to Google+

Here's how to transfer pics from Facebook to Google+.

There are multiple tools that let you download photos from Facebook. Here's I'm using Facebook's data downloader utility. To access it, log into your Facebook account and go to Account >> Account Settings.


Scroll down the page to Download Your Information. Click Learn More.


This lets you download all your information from Facebook -- including photos, videos, posts on your wall and more. Click Download.


This utility will gather all your information and email you a link to a zip folder containing all your data. In the message box that pops up, click Download.


On the next message that displays, click OK.


After you clicked download, you'll see Facebook is gathering your data – pending.


Once Facebook has your data ready, you'll get an email with a link to the zip file containing it.


Download the zip file, extract it and open the Photos folder.


Then move your photos to a convenient location on your hard drive.


One caveat with using Facebook’s download utility: it can take a long time to get your data – hours or even days – depending on how much data you have there.

If you do have a large photo library on Facebook, take a look at other free utilities like Pick & Zip or photograbber.


These two free utilities work on Windows and Mac OS X. They get right down to business by downloading your photos, and take less time.

Whatever utility you use, once you have your photos downloaded to your hard drive, put them on Google+.

Log into your Google+ account and click on Profile >> Photos and click on Upload New Photos.


Then click on Upload New Photos.


Drag and drop your photos to Google + or upload multiple photos at once.


Now just edit, tag and share your photos with friends and colleagues. There you have it!
