In a shoebox. Or, in a photo album. Today, thanks to digital technology, we have dozens of optional photo storage locations ranging from iPhoto, iCloud, to Yahoo’s rejuvenated Flickr. On whole terabyte of free photo storage? What’s not to like? F-Stop makes it happen.
Managing Free With Free
Flickr’s free photo storage is hard to ignore. Apple has an option built-in to iPhoto to share photos on Flickr with a click.
What iPhoto doesn’t do, of course, is let you view and manage photos you’ve uploaded and stored on Flickr.
That’s where F-Stop comes in. It’s a free Mac app which lets you view photos on Flickr, monitor photo viewing activity, upload photos, and search.
But that’s not all. F-Stop also lets you search and save searches from Flickr, add notes to your photos, view geotag information on a map, and manage Flickr sets and photos.
Manage? F-Stop gives you options to reorder images within sets, remove or add comments, and even share Flickr photos on Twitter.
Instead of using a Safari window logged into Flickr, F-Stop gives a more robust interface and access to your Flickr account.
There are plenty of means and ways to upload photos to Flickr, but few apps that actually give you management tools other than Flickr in a browser window.
That F-Stop is free, very effective, and available on the Mac App Store means Mac users have another option for photo management.
