How to Upload Photos from iPhoto to Flickr?

Flickr is an online image and video hosting service which was created in 2004 by Ludicorp. There are two ways to upload photos and videos to Flickr on your Mac. Either you can upload photos to Flickr using the Web browser or directly from iPhoto. But uploading photos directly from iPhoto is more convenient way. To upload photos to Flickr,  open 'iPhoto' on your Mac and click 'Share' button and then select 'Flickr' option. If you are uploading photos first time, then you will need to go log in to your Flickr account and from the site grant access to the iPhoto Uploader. Now, you can direct upload photos from iPhoto to Flickr account.

Here are the steps to Upload Photos from iPhoto to Flickr:

  1. Open "iPhoto" on your Mac.
  2. Select the iPhoto album that you want to upload to Flickr.
  3. Click "Share" button located at the bottom right corner of your iPhoto interface.
  4. Select "Flickr" option.
  5. Log In to your Flickr account. Enter your account details i.e. the email address and password.
  6. Click "New Set" option.
  7. Type new set name for the new Flickr album.
  8. Set privacy control for the uploaded photos. You can change the Photos Viewable by option from 'Anyone to Only You', 'Your Friends', 'Your Family', or 'Your Friends and Family'.
  9. Choose a different size from the Photo Size pop-up menu. (Optional)
  10. Click "Publish" button.
  11. This is how you can upload photos from iPhoto to Flickr.

You can install PicBackMan's Flickr uploader for Mac from the website and start backing up photos and videos.
