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.

PicBackMan does exactly what it's supposed to. It's quick and efficient. It runs unobtrusively in the background and has done an excellent job of uploading more than 300GB of photos to 2 different services. After having lost a lot of personal memories to a hard drive crash, it's nice to know that my photos are safe in 2 different places.

LOVE this program! Works better than ANY other program out there that I have found to upload thousands of pictures WITH SUB-FOLDERS to SmugMug! Thank you so much for what you do! :) #happycustomer

I pointed PicBackMan at a directory structure, and next time I looked - all the photos had uploaded! Pretty cool. I use SmugMug and while I really like it, the process of creating directories in is pretty laborious when you need to make 80+ at a time. This was a breeze. Thank you!

PicBackMan was really easy to setup and has been running for 3 days now backing up all my locally saved photos to Flickr. My photos are really valuable to me so it's great to be able to have them easily backed up to a secure location.
