mirrr (Pronounced ‘mirror’)

A tool to mirror a subset of one flickr account to another.


  • Mirrored images should be named identically to the original, but have a description linking to the source photo.
  • The only tags applied to the mirror should be machine tags referencing to the original.
  • Maximum image size of mirrors is the flickr’s ‘medium’ image size (500px on the longest side).



Create a (a sample is included) file in the same directory as the mirrr script and specify your API key and secret, source username and tag, target username, and details for the mirrors’ metadata.

On first run, something will happen to authenticate with the target flickr acocunt.


  • Only mirror photos uploaded since last-run
  • Only create set mirrors if no set of same name exists
  • Add data paging for large mirror operations
