Total Access to Flickr Account from your Mac [MakeUseOf Giveaway]
We all love sharing pictures with friends and family. And with online solutions like Flickr, getting your photos out into the world is a snap. Here’s something that will make it even more fun!
Flickery is a Mac application that allows you to search, download, and share pictures directly from your desktop. Sharing on Flickr and finding images have never been easier!
This week, we will be giving away 10 licenses for Flickery worth $180 in total! Find out how you can be in the running to win one.
Flickery is extremely simple to use. Once you download, install and launch the app, you’ll be presented with an intro screen which quickly explains its functions.
In order to use the application, you’ll need to sign in to your Flickr account. If you don’t have one, click on “Get Flickr account”, then follow the instructions to create a new account.
Once connected, you’ll have access to your Flickr account directly from your desktop. You can easily browse through your image albums, Flickr contacts, photo groups, favourites, and even upload your photos directly from the app.
Besides that, you can also search for images on Flickr. There are several search options: by tags, title, username, location, nearby, most interesting or newest. The last 3 search options are pre-defined — that is to say, you can always gain access to them via the left sidebar.
To search for a photo, click on the blue Search button and enter a term in one of the search fields (for example, Henry David Thoreau) and click Search. As soon as you do, that search criteria will automatically be saved in the left sidebar for quick access.
Flickery will find images that are tagged with the same word or phrase. Click on the pictures you would like to keep and click on the Download button in the menu. That’s it! The pictures will download directly to whichever folder you designate.
If you want, you can import them directly into iPhoto.
Or you can share them with others through iChat, email, or Twitter. Simply select the “Share” button!
Besides that, you can also perform any of the regular functions i.e. marking an image as Favourite, viewing more images by a particular user, viewing the EXIF information attached to the image and even commenting on the image; all from your desktop.
Flickery works seamlessly with your Mac and is really simply to use. It helps you easily download, organize, and share photos on Flickr with ease!
Try Flickery completely free for 15 days by downloading the trial. If you’re happy with it, be in the running to grab yourself a copy by participating in giveaway.
