Upload Your Pictures To Flickr From Your Linux Desktop With Frogr

Are you someone that takes pictures often and hosts them on the web, namely to a site called Flickr? If so, Frogr can save you time and make it very convenient to upload and manage your pictures straight from your desktop.

According to Frogr’s site, this is their brief description of what Frogr aims to do:

Frogr is a small application for the GNOME desktop that allows users to manage their accounts in the Flickr image hosting website. It supports all the basic Flickr features, including uploading pictures, adding descriptions, setting tags and managing sets and groups pools.”

As you can tell, the Frogr application aims to provide the same functionality has you would get from the website. Some features include:

  • Allows you to upload pictures to Flickr, specifying details such as title, description, tags, visibility, content type, safety level and whether the to “show up on global search results”, both individually or to several pictures at once.
  • Allows adding tags to pictures, opposite to just set them through the ‘details’ dialog.
  • Allows you to create sets (albums) right from Frogr, opposite to just adding pictures to already existing ones.
  • Supports drag’n’drop to load pictures right from other apps.
  • Supports handling multiple Flickr accounts.
