Is it possible uploading folders to Flickr?

Flickr does not provide any such facility as of now. Flickr users are allowed to upload files only and not folders. Even if you try to drag and drop the entire folder into Flickr Photo upload window, it won't accept it. It forces you to select individual photo or video files

However, if you still wish to upload entire photo folder to Flickr, you can take help of third party Flickr photo uploaders. They allow you to bulk upload photos to Flickr. PicBackMan is one such third party Flickr uploader, where you just associate the photo folder(s) and click upload. All your photos will be uploaded in forms of photostreams.

The plus point of using a third party flickr uploader like PicBackMan is, that if the folder on your computer has sub-folders, PicBackMan will upload them as individual photostreams without causing you any extra effort.

So, as far as uploading folders to Flickr is concerned, you can do so using external Flickr uploaders. But, if you wish to upload folders through Flickr's web interface, it is not possible as yet.


UPDATE: 
If you are using the default Flickr photo uploader then the items from your default photo and video folder will be uploaded, To upload an entire folder to your Flick account, you may need a third party Flickr Uploader for Photos & Videos (like PicBackMan) that does the task.

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.

It's AWESOME!! I have tens of thousands of pictures...and they are now successfully uploaded to SmugMug, where they are safely backed up, and I can edit and organize them. If you are hesitating about using PicBackMan, hesitate no longer...try it...and you'll be glad you did!!
