What Mac users miss that iPhone and iPad users have is a dedicated Flickr app to manage photos. Safari remains the browser of choice for Flickr users, but iPhoto gets into the act to upload photos. Here’s a free app to manage the uploads on a Mac.
Flicking Through Flicker
Who doesn’t like Flickr. Sure, it got bought up by Yahoo! (a company that struggles to make ends meet, but has tens of billions in the bank), but it’s better than ever.
If you’re an iPhone or iPad user you’re in luck. Yahoo! publishes a free Flickr app so you can upload and manage photos online.
Mac users don’t get the same kind of love, though, unless you use the free F-Stop app.
This clever Ma app does the basics well. Manage multiple Flickr accounts. Browse through all your photos and view details for each.
It’s smart enough to monitor activity, let you upload photos, save searches, display stats, move photos around, and share photos.
That’s free love, baby.
If Yahoo! developed a Mac app for Flickr (instead of relegating us to iPhoto or a browser window; oh the humanity!) it would look much like F-Stop. The user interface is pure Mac, with familiar sidebar of accounts, contacts, photos and albums, and a built-in option to explore all of Flickr without firing up Safari.
All this is free.
