This tutorial explains how to automatically import photos from Instagram to Flickr.
You can perform this task using a free web app, known as ‘Flickstagram‘. It lets you import photos to your Flickr account in just a few simple steps. You only need to connect your Instagram and Flickr accounts with this app. The rest of the task is done by this app itself. It’s a good thought to keep a backup of your Instagram photographs and that too with your favorite image hosting service, Flickr.
Although there are many other ways to backup your Instagram pics (like you can use Instagram downloader software or use some IFTTT recipe), but Flickstagram has many other great features. For example, while importing the photos from Instagram to Flickr, it helps to keep as much original data as possible. Your photos are stored with original comments, date, hashtags (if any), captions of photos, etc.
The above screenshot clearly shows all the photos imported by this web app from my Instagram account to Flickr account.
