Ubuntu / Linux news and application reviews.

FlickrSync is a neat app that lets you sync photos between your Flickr account and local folders in your computer. After you install the app, you’re required to authorize it after which it loads your Flickr sets.

FlickrSync then displays a familiar Explorer-like interface where you can select the folders that have to be synced with your Flickr account. A dialog is displayed where you can set further options for the sync. You can set local photos and Flickr photos to match by their name, or match by the date taken.

Main Features

· Browse local folders and flickr sets and match your local folders to the corresponding flickr sets.
· Create new Sets when uploading new folders.
· Define flickr permissions for each folder and other synchronization options
· Preview all operations (including photo thumbnails) before applying them to flickr.
· Synchronize specific folders or all selected folders
· Synchronize all image information, including metadata like title and description, keywords/tags and even geo information.
· Use different synchronization methods according to your needs (ex: by date taken, by caption, by filename).
· Define optional filters for each folder. For example: only synchronize to flickr images that have a certain keyword/tag, or a minimal star rating on a specific folder.
