Releasing Desktop Flickr Organizer

About

Desktop Flickr Organizer is a flickr photos organizer right on your own desktop.


Why should you be using it?

Flickr's web based organizr is slow, updates take time. You can only use it when you're online. DFO on the other hand, stores all the updates offline, and with a simple and intuitive graphical interface, allows you to be way more productive. You'll never dread having to organize sets, edit titles, descriptions and tags for the hundreds or thousands of photos you've accumulated. And you can do all this editing, when you're just trying to kill your time in train, or that long plane trip.

What all does it provide?

1. Uploading and downloading of photos. You can download selected photos or the entire sets.
2. Edit information attached to photos; delete photos from stream.
3. Add/Remove tags associated with photos.
4. Create new sets, edit set information, add/remove photos from sets, delete sets.

maaan, i would love to have it, mainly for ability to replace photos.

However, the installation in Ubuntu failed several times i tried to install it. it's way too complicated. i wish someone compile a deb package.

@T - DFO is present in Debian, you can use that package to install it on Ubuntu. Meanwhile, I need someone to push it to Ubuntu packages...

I had to change the permissions on ~/.local/ to make this work. One question: if I move something from one set to another set offline, and then sync with Flickr, will I have to upload the picture again. Or if I just change a comment, will I need to upload the picture again?

Thanks for sharing your work.
