Upload and Organize Flickr Photos Fast with Photonic!

In the last year, I have been on a quest to find an application that will allow me to upload and organize my flickr photos from my desktop. I’ll be honest, I hate the navigation and homepage on Flickr. I just don’t vibe with the work flow. It’s just not instinctive to me and I find myself constantly backtracking and fiddling with tags and sets and clicking on avatars and drop down menus… Uh. Enough!

Today, my quest finally ended when I met: Photonic: Flickr Client for Mac OS X.

Looks nice. Uploading, tagging, setting privacy, and adding photos to sets and groups is easy peasy. You can even view your contacts photos and explore the flickr universe all from the comfort of your desktop. And after playing around with it for several hours, I can find no real fault with it. Also, it appears to run smoothly with Leopard. Yeah! That’s some good news.

    […] titles, description, tags, add to albums and groups, and upload. I talked about it more in depth here. Works really well and it looks like it actually belongs on a Mac. Ahem […]

    Yeah!, it is seen and it worked very well, but I believe that it needs something essential: to be able to browse the iPhoto library… with that would be perfect… do not believe it?

    I tried the demo… Upload seems to be deactivated.. What I need is to be able to upload my photos pre-tagged and pre-“setted” based on the folders they’re in. There’s no hint that I can see that this does it.. But I do think the interface is swell.
