I don’t claim to know about Yahoo!’s business model, but it’s hard to ignore Flickr’s one terabyte of photo storage capability per Yahoo! account. One terabyte. That’s a place for a huge number of photos to be store. How? Flickery on the Mac.
Flickery Does Flickr
First of all you have to be serious about storing your photos on Flickr to give consideration to Flickery. Otherwise, you’re at the mercy of a web browser to upload photos.
How much is one terabyte of photo storage? I’ve been collecting digital photos since the early days of digital photography (a decade and a half).
That time span has netted me less than 220-megabytes of photos in iPhoto. I backup iPhoto to an external disk connected to my Mac, but Flickr quadruples the storage and it’s free.
Flickery is a Mac app that lets you manage your Flickr account– upload photos and videos, add tags and titles, convert RAW files and videos not supported by Flickr.
Wait. There’s more. Flickery lets you download photos from Flickr, comment and manage photos online. If Flickr had an official Mac app, this would be it.
Flickery is familiar in an iPhoto-like sort of way. Click on your Flickr photos in the left Sidebar, browse favorites, upload photos, and more. More? Add and delete photo sets, galleries, and groups from within the app.
Browsing Flickr is easier, too, thanks to search options of text, tags, users, locations, and more.
In essence, Flickery is Flickr in an app, not a browser window. And, it’s try-before-you-buy with a trial version of Flickery. While Flickery gets good reviews, there are issues with a few bugs and stability, but if you’re on Flickr regularly, this is a good way to manage your online photo collection.
