    bebo to facebook photo copy

    ive put all my photos on bebo over the last 5 years. I dont still have the originals. I want to close my bebo, but would like to transfer all the photos over to facebook. Is there an automated way to do this?

    I doubt it, you'd be just aswell grabbing them locally and starting over.

    Not as i know of, your best way would be to do what kmount said and download the images locally and then bulk upload them to facebook.

    Doing that way at least you have to photo's again, and maybe this will give you a chance to maybe take out some of the ones you might not want on your profile any longer.

    Cool cheers I will try that. The other thing I was thinking was maybe scripting something with wget. I will try this first though. Cheeers

    probably work with the Down-it-all firefox extension fairly well - but then you'll need a bulk uploader for facebook.

    iPhoto has an extension for this which is pretty good, dunno about M$ alternatives..

    OK nearly a year later and Im still nowhere nearer a solution. The thing with bebo is that to get the full size image, you cant just right click on the picture in the album, you need to expand each photo to get the original upload.

    As I mentioned in the original post I have years worth of photos and expanding every single one is just not feasable unless I took a month off work.

    Google turns up multiple questions asking the same.. If somoene on here managed to script / code something, I reckon they would be onto a winner even if they charged just $1 for it.

    I really want to close my bebo.. Ill pay someone $20 to download all the fullsize photos for me.. Any takers?

    How many pictures we talking? I might be convinced to do it for you if you're not wanting it done by tomorrow sort of thing.

    Can you not just point a web spidering & downloading app at your profile and leave it chugging away with appropriate limits set on where it should wander?

    Doesn't seem impossible to do. I take it you don't need then renaming or anything? Just literally download, put them in a folder, burn to CD/send them across somehow?

    Bebo renamed them all to complete random filenames.. so as long as they were downloaded and kept within each album it would be fine.. Theyve all been resized for web before uploaded so cant imagine them all being much more than 50mb if they could get zipped / rarred im sure theyd be easy enough to transfer over the interwebs..

    Send me a PM and if I get bored, I'll do them as and when and let you have them?
