Flickr Uploadr 3.0 lives 2007/12/20

Time to take a deep breath.  Flickr Uploadr 3.0 is out for all and two minor revisions later is looking pretty good.  There are still issues to be resolved but I won't spend any time here whining about desktop software or how hard it is.

The next challenge will be turning the GPL'ed Uploadr into something moldable and bendable for other developers to play with.  In the meantime, check out the new Flickr Uploadr and its source code at

  1. You've definitely hit a home run with the new uploader.  without steroids too!.  I think. I overheard some people talk about it on the bus the other day with nothing but good comments.

    Congrats on a good release :)

  2. I am really impressed with your work on Flickr Uploadr 3.0.

    I think I have found some ways to break it, but overall, it's a gem. I look forward to testing future revisions with you.

  3. Dittos on the Kudos for the Uploadr. Considering the scale of the rewrite, after using it for a week or two and cursing it only mildly, it's pretty sweet. :D And getting better at a rockin' pace.

    And as someone who QAs another product for a living I like that the UI is, with a couple of exceptions, pretty darn stable.

  4. Thanks for Uploadr 3. Have you seen any shots of Flickr Importr in action at all?

    Unfortunately it's not available anymore. But the great thing about Flickr Import would let you assign pictures to sets and groups before uploading (pick any different combination of). This was insanely useful as it lets people decide pretty much where they want things to go before uploading.
