Well yes, I agree … but what other ones are there?
I am glad this plugin exists of course, but it could be better and part of the problem is Apple’s APIs.
One hopes Apple will upgrade Aperture again one day, and allow this plugin to write metadata back to Aperture (GPS etc.) for instance.

If you are using Apples aperture for image editing and organizing.. this export plugin (FlickrExport for Aperture) is a warm welcome in cleaning up your workflow.

It works perfect and just makes uploading photographs easier.

Both thumbs up...

This app is worth every cent. It's so much better then using the Flickr Uploadr program.

So much better than Flickr Uploader. Great features and incredibly stable. Not only that but when Flickr messes itself up with it's constant changes. This app is usually sorted and running properly again before Flickr has it's own stuff sorted out.

Well worth the money!

One Great Application!
Frankly even if Flickr export is included in Aperture "XX", and I see no reason why it wouldn't be. I can't see them improving on this app. It's just that good. Never used the geotagging functions as I do it in Aperture with Mapaperture.

I use the iPhoto uploader. I also have Aperture 2. Is this uploader better than the one I currently use?

Just because I own a camera and lenses worth more than 4k,doesn't mean I need to spend money on a upload app.
Flickr's desktop uploader is free and simple to use,thanks flickr peeps!...:)

I found a bug on it.
If you change the order of the pictures in the plugin windows the tags and caption don't so basically, if I have three pciture and I move the first one to the end, the former second will get the tags of the former first, the former third the ones of the former second and the former first the tags of the former third... is that clear?

Brilliant application, but I can't understand why there isn't at least the option, if not the default to upload the file name and captions from aperture. I shouldn't need to rekey them!! Or am I missing something?

Needs an update since Aperture 3 is in 64-bit and you need to relaunch Aperture in 32-bit to use the plugin.

I tried the Flickr upload option with Aperture 3 for all of 2 days and got far too annoyed with it. Bought this plugin immediately after asking a friend what he uses.

dsleeter_2000 says:

I like it! But I noticed a couple bugs.
1. The "Exporting..." message in the status bar of Aperture 3.01 doesn't spin.
2. I specifically limited the size of the uploaded images to within 1024 pixels, but it went ahead and uploaded full size anyway.
I'm using 32 bit old MacBook Pro. I was wondering if FlickrExport would work because it says 64-bit (only?). Please clarify.
Thanks!

I agree with doughnu7. Apple could have easily made this plug-in unnecessary, but they failed to make a useful Flickr uploader. FlickrExport is the best solution I could find, and well worth the money.

Brad Russell says:

Am I the only one who is clueless why you would buy this if you already have Aperture 3? Aperture 3 has a flickr upload feature built in, and it could not get any easier to use. All you do is take a project/album or choose by hand which photos you want to add to flickr, and in the push of the button its done. You can even designate the set, info, etc. It just shows up in your library like another album so you can rearrange, add, delete photos in aperture, and it makes the changes on your flickr account. You can even edit photos that have already been uploaded to flickr while in Aperture, and it will update the changes on your flickr photos! So what does this new plugin do that it doesn't?

I am using 3.1.1 and it doesn't look any EXIF data is getting posted to flickr. Any thoughts?

hishma says:

Is version 3.1.1 64 bit? On the main page it says it is:


FlickrExport for Aperture (3.1.1)
Take your images to the world.
64-bit for Aperture 3.

But when I follow the link from there to the page for the plugin, it states:


FlickrExport currently works with Apeture 3 in 32-bit mode. Looking for a 64-bit version for Aperture 3 on Snow Leopard? See the Beta Version section on the right.


And I don't see any beta version section on the right. I'm confused and too lazy to download and see for myself I guess...

My EXIF data is getting posted to flickr via 3.1.1 version of the plugin.

Any chance your Hide your EXIF data setting of in the Privacy & Permissions tab of your flickr profile is set to NO?

when i export it out from aperture 3.0.2, even when the export process' finished on flickr side, aperture still tells me that flickr export's still "Exporting"
and it won't stop rotating lol.. i could just quit to refresh aperture, but it's kinda annoying.. :\

I use it since 2008 already and never looked back. Fantastic plugin. When Aperture 3 introduced Flickr uploading I was surprised they did such a bad job with a reference implementation like this out there.

How about the ability to pre-select multiple groups you want to post your uploads to? Also being able to group your groups and save them so that you can select with a single click a set of groups to post particular kinds of shots. At least, that's what got me into this plugin.


What the plugin really needs, however, is a way to let me select multiple sets to list each upload to. Currently, if you select multiple images to upload, you're confined to uploading them all into only one set. I want to be able to select multiple sets to put photos into, individually.

Also, really bad design: if I do something stupid in the Description box (say, Cmd+A -> C, instead of Cmd+A -> Cmd+C), I should be able to undo and get the text back. Last night I wasted about 15 minutes' worth of typing because of this.

@brad russell - there are various reasons not to use the inbuilt flickr uploader that aperture 3 offers, but the one I find most annoying (and you most likely will have found this since commenting!) is that when you do make edits to a photo it does update flickr but it does so by removing the old one and adding a new one. So the image jumps to the front of your photostream and most annoyingly of all, clears all comments and favourites attached to the original.

The FlickrExport for Aperture 3 is brilliant and exactly how Apple should have designed it, except for one thing:

The normal export function in aperture allows you to have an export preset which means any images you export can be watermarked with your copywrite. The FlickrExport doesn't let you do this - or at least I can't find the ability to do so. This would be so helpful as I don't really like having my images on flickr without some form of watermark - but it's too much effort to do so at present.
