Now that Flickr has upgraded “Pro” accounts to unlimited upload bandwidth, Flickr has suddenly become a great place to archive and backup your original photos. To aid in this, I’ve created a program that should be able to upload any number of photos to your Flickr account. Just point it at a directory and let it sit for a while.
Download Mass Uploadr v0.2 now!
Here’s what you need to know:
- The program requires the .NET Framework 2.0. You can download that here. Alternatively, it should work with Mono in Linux or OSX. I haven’t tested it, so let me know how that goes for you.
- It will search the folder you select and upload all .jpg files in the folder and subfolders.
- There is NO checking for duplicates. If you select the same folder twice, you’ll end up with the same photos on your account multiple times.
- All photos will be uploaded as “private”. The easiest way to make them public would be to go into the Organize page and select the whole mess of photos you’ve uploaded.
- There is no photo resizing. This is meant for archiving your photos and will upload the original quality.
- The amount of time it takes the program to upload your files depends on the total size of the files and your upstream bandwidth. Most DSL connections are not as fast uploading as they are downloading, but you probably already knew that.
- The progress bar is the progress in the current folder, not the overall progress.
