  • Automatically assign iPhoto metadata, such as titles, descriptions, tags, and locations, to the uploaded photos, or input your own custom info
  • Add the uploaded photos to any number of Flickr albums or groups, or to a newly created album
  • more...

What's New

Doesn't iPhoto now include these features?
What advantage is there to using this Plug-in?
Just wondering and can't find any pertinent answers at website.

Version 4.0.1

The plugin is useful for more "advanced" users of Flickr and iPhoto (relatively speaking). Unlike the built-in Flickr tool, this plugin allows uploading of original files. The built-in exporter compresses all uploads regardless of your preferences.

Given that the built in tools focus is synchronizing with Flickr, it will delete photos from your Flickr account if removed from iPhoto. This plugin will not do that.

For some, this doesn't matter. But for me, I am happy to pay for the added benefits this plugin offers.

Has anyone had any luck getting tech support from this developer? I followed the contact link on their web site and it takes me to a "Get Satisfaction" site, where you field your questions and see if it's already been answered. If it hasn't you hope that someone sees your question and helps you out. Ten days and counting and no one has so I'd like to contact the developer for some direct support. Not so easy.

I was thinking of upgrading to the latest version but don't see the point if I can't get help with the software.

In case someone here knows the answer: I've never had any luck with the "don't show Tags matching these regular expressions" feature in FlickrExort for iPhoto and I've been using it for years. The ? button takes me to a fairly technical site with information on Grep expressions. I can't figure it out. Can anyone tell me how to make this feature work?

Oh gee-wiz, look, the app you linked to is not compatible with iPhoto '09. Perhaps you should have read the description or the developer site before recommending it.


@THE GRAPHIC MAC - Please take the time to check out the date of my comment, Feb 08.


To TheGraphicMac:

iPhoto 09 has Flickr Support built-in.


Yes, iPhoto 09 has Flickr support built-in...no need for this plug-in anymore.

Finally got this sucker to work;

In applications select iPhoto.
Right click select Show Package Contents.


Make sure you delete any duplicates of FlickExport.iPhotoExporter also any other exporters you may have installed (seems to be a conflict there).

Reinstall and that should do the job :-)

I installed earlier today and am now not able to use the export function in iPhoto at all. Kind of bummed - I've been using the Aperture version for some time and had high hopes that I'd be able to export from iPhoto if I needed to as well. If anyone knows what I'm missing please let me know.

I sometimes used this plugin when it was free. owever, this plugin confirmed my doubts about "free" software as it was not open software. Once enough people like it and start using it it'll become shareware. I know, nobody is forced to update but still, there is some sour aftertaste left. I prefer if software is called beta or demo with a note that it will become payware as soon as it runs smoothly. Otherwise the developer is a very good programmer!

This is not true. FlickrExport was open source software until version 2.0 was released, and the source code for 1.x can still be downloaded: http://connectedflow.com/flickrexport/source/

Boom! Updated one day after comment. Once again proving this is the best Flickr export solution. Thanks for the lightning-quick compatibility with iPhoto '08!

This is an excellent, must have ad-on to iPhoto. I am a registered owner.

I hope that the developers update this for iPhoto '08. If it is installed in '08 currently, it will cause the Export function to stop working completely.
