This whole LJ Migration thing will take a little longer than planned to complete. I realized that all the photos in all my past entries are linked to my LJ Scrapbook. If I want to keep them in my Dreamwidth entries after deleting my LJ, I therefore have to upload them somewhere else, and change the links in the entries.

I have downloaded all the photos from my LJ entries to computer, carefully filed according to date of entry, and have started the process of going through each corresponding DW entry, uploading the photos to my Dreamwidth image hosting space, and replacing the links. So far reached the end of 2005.

Or is there some much easier way of doing this that I'm missing?

I have heard nothing of an image import script: let us all know if you do!

I dunno. That's one of the reasons I'm keeping my LJ open. A lot of my older photos are hosted on Photobucket, or just off the internet and I assume no one reads my old entries anyway.
