Third party software programs that require login credentials to work are often the cause for security concerns. No one likes to hand out username and password to important accounts. That's why official software programs are most of the time the better solution for users who want to use software to access web services. Flickr for instance offers access to an official tool to upload photos to the photo hosting service.
Flickr Uploadr is a computer program that is available for Windows and Mac users. It can be used to easily upload multiple photos from the local computer system to the popular photo hosting website Flickr. The photo uploader offers a clean interface. Photos can be added from the build in file browser or by dragging and dropping them into the interface.
Flickr Uploadr will automatically display thumbnails of each photo that has been loaded into the software. A click on a photo will display various tags in the right sidebar. It is for example possible to change the title, description, tags or safety level of the photos. Other options include hiding the selected photos from public areas at Flickr and defining which user group is allowed to see the photo.
One interesting option is the ability to selected multiple photos at once so that information can be changed for all of them at once.
Flickr Uploadr requires permissions and a logged in user to work. The program will automatically open the Flickr website and display an authorization prompt for the software after login. The program needs to be authorized only once. for every Flickr account.
Flickr Uploadr will display the disk space for the remaining month and the full size of all photos that have been added to the photo uploader software.
A final click on Upload will initiate the transfer of the photos to the Flickr account.
Flickr Uploadr is compatible with Windows XP, Windows Vista and Mac OSX 10.4 and 10.5.Advertisement
