Python tool to unpack, reorder into albums and rename photos to original names after pooling flick dump

Project description


Simple python tool to reorder photos into albums & rename them to previous names after pooling flick dump

If for some reason you had to pull dump from flickr, you may find it pretty much useless (several thousands of photos, just put with incorrect names into zip files +-4 Gb each) So, this tool is intended to help you resorting albums structure according to metadata from flickr itself

First of all, you can just find a guy who know python, and ask him to read this manual and perform required steps on your Mac / PC / etc.

If this one is not good enough, or something, you need to do two things: extract data, and reorder it. Both can be done with the flickr-recovery; installation requires python3.5+ and pip (I'll recommend creating new virtualenv for it) In this virtualenv (or just in base environment) run:

python -m pip install flickr-recovery
python -m flickr-recovery extract-to-albums /path/to/your/archives/all/in/one/dir

Make sure you have enough space on the partition with archives; Or, if you want to extract images to different location, add images_dir to command call

python -m flickr-recovery extract-to-albums /path/to/your/archives/all/in/one/dir /path/to/images/

The directory should exists, if specified. Otherwise, it would be /path/to/your/archives/all/in/one/dir/images for images and /path/to/your/archives/all/in/one/dir/data for account data
