In light of Instagram's recent scare, Free the Photos online app allows users of the popular photo enhancing app to transfer their photos safely to a Flickr account.

Instagram recently announced that it holds the rights to all photos uploaded using their app without having to notify the pictures' owners. With large companies and celebrities debating on deleting their Instagram account for good, the Free the Photos app helps streamline this process by providing a simple solution. The only downside to the migration process from Instagram to Flickr is that free Flockr accounts only allows 300MB per month to be transferred, which is equivalent to approximately 10,000 photos. This may be a problem for prolific photographers and big companies so it may be worthwhile to look into upgrading, even if it's only for the first few months.
