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 blogger’s 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. I tried & it just says “your request is processing” it’s been like this for days! Does it usually take this long?

    • It has, but not usually. You may want to try logging out and logging back in, as some have said the photos appear after doing that.

  2. Is it possible I’m not doing it right? When I first logged in it didn’t give me the option to transfer pics, I had to look up the link.

  3. I tried this and it says my photos were already transferred. I definitely did not do this! The new Myspace is aweful. Not cool at all…

  4. I can’t even log into the page that this link sends me to. I’ve sent customer service a message but Lord only knows how long that will take. I have pictures that can’t be replaced on there!! I need help please!!!! If anyone else has this problem or can help please e-mail at [email protected].

    PLEASE HELP!!!!!

  5. I tried this and it says that my photos have already been transferred. Yet when I go to look at them, none of my photos are there. Is there another way to retrieve them?

    • That is the only way that we have seen. There may be a delay for some people. Some have also suggested logging out and logging back in.

  6. I tried to log in but it says that it doesn’t recognize that email ???

  7. How do you delete old myspace photos that got transferred?

    so I did exactly what it says to do and it says already transferred from classic myspace to mixs but when I go look at them there is only one picture in there I am so angry I lost all of my wedding photos now and pictures of my kids when they were babies. I tried logging in logging out all that stuff and waited a few hours and there is still only one picture :( I HATE the new myspace!

  11. I can’t get into my old myspace! It takes me to page that shows me as my MIDDLE name and I have NEVER gone by that. None of my pictures are there. I can go see my old profile….like there is a profile pic but this new page has nothing on it AND not pics…it says they have been transferred but then it says I have no pictures! All of my kids pictures are on here and ONLY here.

    Could it be true that my pics could have been deleted? Smh please reply back. Thank you!!!!!!!!

    • Myspace has said that old data is still on their servers, so you should be able to get them back. Their process, however, has proven buggy to some users.

    I do not see the Transfer Photo Albums button.. I did what you said and typed https://myspace.com/settings/classicimport and it pulls up the mixed albums but cannot find the transfer photo album button. I pray to god you respond back I have so many pics on myspace saved that I want back. please help!!

    • It’s possible they have changed this feature slightly since we posted this article. We will try to find out if anything has changed. Please inform us of any updates.

  24. X( I hate the new my space it sucks.. I wish I could view old pictures I follow every instruction. Took me 6 months to finally have access to my page. They need to fix this site. I think for now on I’ll have to invest money into a camrea so they won’t ever get lost or deleted. Like all these sites do an memory chips

  25. I went to try and transfer pics from old myspace and it was saying they were being transfered already. I hadnt even begun to do didnt click on it to begin so how am i going to get my pictures back.

  26. So stupid that MySpace took it upon themselves to do this.

    But here is why it’s not working for anyone, they’re saying it will be fixed in a couple weeks.

    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!

  30. I hate the new myspace, I need help! I have tried the link to transfer my pictures and it does not work for me. I have hundreds of irreplaceable pictures on there. PLEASE HELP ME!!

  34. 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!

  35. 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!!!!!
