If you are a Flickr User and are bored uploading your photos one by one or in mini batches then checkout the Flickr desktop uploader which is a nice handy tool for all Flickr users. Even if you are a free member of Flickr still you can use this feature and upload upto 102.4Mb of Photos every month and if you are a Pro member you can upload unlimited photos.
The Desktop Uploader tool can be downloaded from here and you need to select the right version because Flickr offers you with both Windows[Exe] & Mac[Dmg] based versions. The tool once installed and run asks you to authorize your application in order to get full access to run from the desktop and once this is done you will have the option to upload your photos along with giving them Names, Descriptions, Tags, Creating Sets etc all from the Desktop Uploader tool.
Why i use Flickr & not my own website for hosting my Images?
Even though i own my own web servers and have hundreds of domain names where i can create excellent photo galleries, Flickr is one of the site which is the best for hosting your photos for life and the cost is really minimal which is just around 2$/month. Iam sure the memories stored in your photos is worth a lot more than this and which is the reason i opted for Flickr. Also you have option to hide your photos from Public and keep them private which means that you can select and show only the photos which everyone can see and other ones are stored in your account for only your view.
The Uploading tool would also show you the Uploading Speed and the progress of all the photos which are uploaded in order to give you a estimate of the job completion. You can also run multiple accounts through this Application and easily upload your images. Just Click on ‘Add’ and select the Photos from your local hard disk drive and then click on ‘Add’ to show the thumbnail of all the photos on the Left Side panel of this application. While one set of your photos are being uploaded you can start another Batch upload which is started the moment previous set is uploaded.
Once all the photos are uploaded you get a message to Stay there on the Application itself or move to the Flickr in order to Organize your Photos.
