6 Best Free Linux Flickr Tools

6 Best Free Linux Flickr Tools

Flickr is an online photo management and sharing application created in 2004 and subsequently acquired by the web portal organisation, Yahoo! Inc. Flickr has a large user base (more than 60 million members) that rely on this storage site to host and share their 6 billion images with family and friends. The application is particularly popular among the blogging community, but faces stiff competition from the likes of Picasa, Facebook, and others. There is a free version of Flickr which allows 2 videos and 300MB of photos to be uploaded per month. If users need more bandwidth, the ability to show HD video, archiving, and ad-free browsing, they can upgrade to a relatively inexpensive Pro account.

Whilst there have been no official Flickr tools released for Linux, the developers have made the Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) available to software developers. The APIs allow Flickr to be integrated into other Linux software.

This article focuses on selecting the best small Linux utilities that support Flickr integration. These tools help users to edit, tag, download and upload images to and from a Linux computer and the Flickr service.

One application that is definitely worth an honorable mention but has not been covered in this article is FlickrEdit. This is a Java application which has an excellent feature-set, but we have run into some compatibility issues with the Ubuntu / Java combination we use on our systems.

To provide an insight into the quality of software that is available, we have compiled a list of 6 useful Flickr tools. Hopefully, there will be something of interest here for anyone who wants to manage their Flickr account from a Linux box.

Now, let's explore the 6 Flickr tools at hand. For each title we have compiled its own portal page, a full description with an in-depth analysis of its features, a screenshot, together with links to relevant resources and reviews.
