    If you still have an Orkut account and have some personal stuff on Orkut, then save it to your computer. It's because Google has announced that it is closing Orkut down. So, if you have any pictures or messages on Orkut which you want to keep, then save them elsewhere. Remember that you can't download information from other people's accounts. You can only download data from your own Orkut account. It means that you can't download the scraps or testimonials which you sent to other people. You can only download the scraps or testimonials which you have received and their comments. Do it fast because it will stop working after 30th September 2014. To transfer your photos to Google+ follow the steps given below : -

    >> Go to Google+ and log in to your account
    >> Then open Orkut's album export page
    >> Click to select each album you want to export or choose "Select all".
    >> Click "Import selected". This will transfer your photos to Google+. All these photos will only be visible to you. You'll have to change their privacy settings to make them visible to others.

    If you want to save the pictures and scraps to your computer, then you can use Google Takeout. By this you can download all your Orkut data in a zip file. The file will contain HTML files and photos. "You can download your profile, scraps received, testimonials received, activities and your photos from Orkut", said by Google. This is how to download your Orkut data : -

    >> Head to Google Takeout and sign in if you haven't already done so.
    >> Click on "Choose services" and then select Orkut.
    >> Click on "Create archive" and wait till the archive is ready. You can leave the page, and receive an email when the archive is ready.
    >> Click on Download, once the archive is ready. There is no limit on how many times you can download your Orkut information.
