Vista Flickr Uploader

Flickr is already offering an official tool to upload images their servers provided that you have a free or paid account at the site.. The software is supporting several operating systems and another tool made by a third party has to add features that the official uploader is not supporting to have any chance of being recognized at all.

Vista Flickr Uploader is a Flickr image uploader specifically designed for Windows Vista. It makes use of the Extensible Metadata Platform support of Windows Vista. The downside is that XMP is not supported yet by Flickr which means that the only distinguishable feature that the application is offering is not supported by Flickr.

It will however be interesting if Flickr adds support for XMP in the future. Other than that the Vista Flickr Uploader is supporting the usual features that image uploaders offer these days.

Several images can be selected and uploaded at once. Each image is shown as a thumbnail in the program window. Permissions can be set so that only a certain group can access the pictures and it is possible to select one of the existing sets to add the images to it.

Update: Please note that the program has not been updated since 2010 which may mean that it is no longer working properly. I suggest you try the program first if you like its functionality, and if it does not work head over to Flickr's own Tools section on the official website to download the official desktop uploader for Windows from the site.

The desktop uploader is compatible with all recent versions of Windows including Windows 8 - even though that is not mentioned on the page - as well as recent versions of Apple's Mac OS operating system.

    Yeah Micheal’s right, Live Photo Gallery has a great tool for this, if only they extended it to support a few more services… it cant be too hard

    Of course, Kubuntu comes with a Flickr uploader already built into Digikam. It supports a few other services as well.

    You guys should check out Windows Live Photo Gallery. We worked with Flickr to make sure our app (which uses both XMP & EXIF) does the “right thing” when publishing photos to Flickr so all the metadata remains with the files you publish. Check out this blog post:
