I learned from the TV Patrol News of the ABS-CBN that Friendster will be deleting the photos and other materials and data posted by its users into its social networking site because Friendster will be evolving from a networking site to a new and different service. And because of this, Friendster users are advised to download their photos from Friendster to their PC or transfer the pictures from Friendster to other networking sites like MySpace, Facebook and others.
At the time that I heard the news, I was already there in Hinunangan, Southern Leyte where internet connection is not stable. I tried the Smart Bro Plugit and it said that I was getting an HSDPA connection, yet the speed is too slow in which I could hardly browse my Facebook account. I also tried renting a computer from the Pacific Internet in the town-proper of Hinunangan, but then the speed is much worse.
So, the only option that I can do is to go back here in Maasin City. And here I am.
I am actually here to check all the things that I left here in our apartment. And of course, it’s my only chance for me to do the things that I couldn’t do in Hinunangan.
Downloading Friendster Pictures
I don’t know what you did to transfer your photos from Friendster into your computer’s harddrive. And just in case you’re wondering how did I download the photos I uploaded at Friendster, here’s how:
Use Mozilla Firefox
I am using Mozilla Firefox here. At least for me, downloading photos from Friendster is actually much easier in Mozilla.
Login first at Friendster using your username or email and password. Then open the “Photos” page. Then open a “Photo Album“. And then browse every photo you have in that particular photo album.
After browsing all the photo in that photo album, press your keyboard key “ALT”. While pressing the “ALT” key, press also the “T” key and then press the “i”. If you found pressing these keys hard, then just click the “TOOLS” in the Firefox menu bar. Then something will pop, then click “PAGE INFO”.
The “PAGE INFO” window will pop up. It looks like the one shown below:
Now Click the “Media” as shown in the screen shot below:
Then browse the content and look for the entry that begins with “http://photos-p.friendster.com/photos/“. Once you found them, highlight them clicking on the first entry then press “SHIFT” key in your keyboard and while pressing the “SHIFT” key, click on the last entry.
Once the entries are highlighted, click the “Save As“. You’ll then be asked where to save. Just follow the steps and then all the photos in that album will be downloaded.
Repeat Steps in Different Photo Album
If you have two or more photo album in your Friendster Photo section, then you need to do the same procedure I stated above in every photo album until all photos in all the Photo Albums will be finally downloaded.
Transfer Photos to Facebook or MySpace
I understand why you had uploaded those photos into your Friendster account. You wanted to share the memories contained in those photos to your friends. So, now that Friendster is closing, you want them to be uploaded at Facebook or any other social networking sites.
So, what should you do?
There might be software or tricks that can be used in uploading those photos all at once but I just couldn’t recommend them. You can however follow what I did. Just manually upload those photos to your account in other social networking sites like Facebook or MySpace.
By the way, uploading photos at Facebook is much easier because you can upload many photos all at once.
