How to Retrieve Your Old Photos in the New Myspace

When the "New Myspace" launched in 2013, some users logged for the first time in years in hopes of seeing their old Myspace data - only to find their beloved (or ignored) profile had been wiped clean, with the exception of a single profile picture. Though it hasn't yet been announced that you'll ever be able to see old Myspace messages you can at least get back your old photos and blog posts.

Note: It has been announced that old blogs will be available for download beginning in September 2013. Please see Myspace to Make Old Blogs Available for Download for more information.

To retreive your old Myspace photos, be sure that you are logged in to the new Myspace first. Then go to https://myspace.com/settings/classicimport. Here you’ll be given the option to import your old photos.

The link will take you to a page with the following text:

Moving classic Myspace photos to your new Myspace profile is simple and easy. Each photo album is brought over as a mix. Once they’ve transferred, only you will be able to see them so you can take time to go through your photos before sharing them with connections.

*You can only do this once. So make it count.

By clicking on the “Transfer Photo Albums” button below, you agree that your transferred content will be governed by the new Myspace TOU and Privacy Policy. Please check them out before you click.

If you aren’t able to log into your old profile, perhaps because you can’t access your old email any longer, see this this post about account recovery.

Where do I find my old Myspace photos after I’ve imported them?

Originally, photos only appeared in your mixes, but Myspace has since changed this. They now appear under Library>Photos.  appear in your Photostream. You can find this link right under your profile picture.

It should be noted that while you can retrieve your old photos, old comments on these photos are all gone.

How do I make my old Myspace photos public?

You have to click on the specific “mix” (aka “Album”) first before you can make it public. After you’ve clicked it, there will be a lock with a drop-down box which will allow you to make the album public.

Go into the "mix" you want to make public and choose the lock drop-down.

Go into the “mix” you want to make public and choose the lock drop-down.

Bottom Line

It still isn’t clear if the new Myspace will ever bring back old blog posts, messages, or other data, but the ability to retrieve your old Myspace pictures is perhaps of some consolation to those who thought they were lost.

What do you think of the new Myspace?

  1. So who’s clueless enough to delete a photo from their hard drive after they upload it?

  2. Well, Myspace is a music site, so you could certainly find music on there. As far as indie and unsigned bands, it doesn’t look like those transferred to the new site.

  3. I want all my content> MySpace should be ashamed. I hope the new Myspace music site is a big flop. This is a rotten way to treat your user base.

  4. I hate the new myspace and can’t register with the new one !
    I want my old myspace back new myspace is sh(one)t it’s SH(one)T !!

  5. I got the message, “Every photo that we had available has been moved over. If you’re missing photos, that means they were deleted before we made the transfer.

    If you see the option to Transfer Photo Albums, you’re photos have not been transferred.”

    WHICH MEANS I CAN’T GET THEM BACK BECAUSE THEY DELETED MINE BEFORE TRANSFERRING. WHY CAN THEY DELETE SOME PEOPLES BEFORE TRANSFERRING BUT NOT EVERYONE’S? THIS IS COMPLETE BULLSHIT. ALL MY MEMORIES= GONE.

  6. My beloved lover died August 22,2012 ,I would go on myspace and reminisce. His pictures is all that I had left of him and Myspace took it all away I feel like that is very cruel and inconsiderate ,

    I would look at old messages between me and him and now they are all gone just like him ….. rip Dionte Jerrel Lewis I love you!
    forever in my heart

  7. they could have at least let you access albums of your photos… what a pia to go picture by picture!! I had just shy of a 1000 pictures.. wow…. even a download option of all pictures as a one time option would have been nice!! Myspace your over.

  8. this sucks….

  9. I went to transfer photos from my old account and it says that it’s already linked to the new one. When I look under the library they are not there! WTF!

  11. so i have done everything this has told me to do and i still do not have my pictures. these pictures are actually very important to me since they are some of the last pictures i have of my mom before she died…..help!!!!!

  12. WTF. I hate the new myspace. It didnt transfer any of my photos over. Why does it say you can only do this once. Make it count. ITs their fault that I dont have my pictures and they want me to make it count. They need to get off their lazy ass and find a way to get everyones photos back. What they did to us, is totally rude!

    I copied and pasted the website you have listed and I clicked on the blue button to transfer photos and it turned to unclickable faded button that says “Your Photos Are Transferring” but nothing is happening? I opened a new window tab and looked under the photos tab under the library selection but the only picture that shows up is my profile photo. Does it normally take this long for photos to transfer and do I need to leave the tab open with the computer active in order for it to complete this process? I had hundreds of photos that I cannot retrieve any other way and they were pictures of my daughter when she was born, her first birthday, me and my fiance when we were highschool sweethearts, etc. Needless to say I am extremely aggrivated that Myspace was able to delete these pictures in the first place, but I need this to work due to the importance of the nature of the pictures!! PLEASE HELP!
