About the Flickr Uploadr for Mac
1,000GB of free storage lets you store countless images on Flickr. Why let that space go to waste? Download the Flickr Uploadr for Mac OSX to automatically back up some or all of your photos to your Flickr account, where they're saved privately - so only you can see them.
Get familiar with the app
You pick what folders the Uploadr monitors. As you add new photos to the folders, they're automatically uploaded to Flickr as private photos.
Images are only uploaded from your computer to Flickr. It does not sync both ways.
- Delete images on your computer - Associated images on Flickr are not deleted.
- Delete images on Flickr - Associated images on your computer are not delete.
Any unique JPEG, TIFF, GIF, or PNG over 16x16 pixels will be eligible for upload.
You'll never see extra copies of images on Flickr from the Uploadr. It checks if there's already an exact copy of the photo in your account first. If it finds an exact match, it won't upload it.
If you edit an image on your computer, it becomes "new" and will be uploaded. Edits include:
- Editing the image with photo editing software
- Rotating the image
- Resizing the image
- Re-compressing the image
Uploadr keeps your images organized by creating new photo albums on Flickr, based on the original folder's name it uploads from.
Now that you know how it works behind the scenes, here's how to get started using the app.
