How to Retrieve Your Old Photos in the New Myspace

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 was 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 changed this several times. For a couple of years they appeared under Library>Photos in your Photostream. As of 2015, the photos are back under the “Mixes” section. You can find this link right on the left navigation bar.

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

Myspace has attempted to resurrect itself as a music-based social network in recent years. You can still find your old photos (and now blogs) on there, but they must be imported and will appear under the “mixes” section. Comments on old photos have been deleted.

What do you think of the new Myspace?
