Quicker Flickr Uploads

Photos can spice up your blog. Some times they are essential. See for example Open Office 2007.

I use Flickr to manage my web photos. I started using it almost a year ago. Then a separate company, Flickr is now part of Yahoo, so I can access it with my Yahoo account.

I don’t have many photos on Flickr, and I’ve been comfortable using Flickr’s standard web-based upload form.

Recently, while putting together the “Office 2007” post I had to upload some pictures, and I saw mention of Improved Web Uploading. Tools available at Flickr: Help / Tools.

I tried the first one listed, “Flickr Uploadr for Windows Vista, XP, 2000, ME and 98.” When I used InstallShield to install it, it identified itself as “Flickr Uploader 2.5.”

I took a few shots of my back yard, using the Kodak camera that I recently wrote about, and then tried the new tool.

It’s easy to use Flickr Uploader 2.5 You just upload the photos from the camera your usual way. Once that is done you start Flickr Uploadr. It opens up a window and you can then drag pictures into the window. You need to do a simple web authorization the first time you run the tool. Once that’s done a single button suffices to upload the pictures. All in all it is more convenient and faster than the standard download form.

Notes:

By the way, I can *never* type “InstallShield correctly the first time — it always comes out “InstallShields.” Why is that?
