I'm losing it, and have searched for an hour and found no solution. I have a ton of photos in iPhoto which then got migrated to Photos on Sierra. Apple wants a fortune to store photos in iCloud, but Flickr gives me a terabyte of storage for free. I figured, I'll upload everything to Flickr, then I can download a copy to local external storage. Flickr allows batch downloading in zipped format. Stupid me. I was able to upload all non-Photos stuff (like from the Nikon photo software) but there doesn't seem to be any way to upload from within Photos. All the old tools that worked with iPhoto are broken or gone. I don't like the fact that with Photos, I can't access the files from the Finder window. I'm used to going that way to edit them, etc. Plus I can just publish or share photos directly from Finder, whereas Photo keeps everything in some database format and I can't get to an individual photo unless I go through the Photos app. And now after the trouble I've had naming files, deleting albums, etc. in Flickr I'm paranoid about them for long term storage. Maybe I have to just accept the weirdness of Photo and deal with not being able to see the individual files. What do y'all advise? Can I import all the Flickr stuff into Photo? How hard will it be to weed out the thousands of duplicates if I do that? And other than backing up to a local hard disk, how can I back up the Photos library to the cloud? UPDATE: Fudge, it's worse than I thought. I downloaded an album from Flickr to Photos, no problem, it kept the file date on the photo and everything instead of resetting it to "now". But I notice for the first time that Photos has been importing images all along and there are already a bunch in there. So I'm just going to import everything I can find, then download some duplicate photo cleaner app to remove the thousands of dupes, then back it up to an external drive stored at the bank. I give up.
