Flickr Remote Organizer (Frogr) is a small open source application for the GNOME desktop that allows users to manage their accounts in the Flickr image hosting website. It supports all the basic Flickr features, including uploading pictures, adding descriptions, setting tags and managing sets and groups pools.

Frogr intends to be a complete GNOME application to remotely manage a Flickr account from the desktop.

Frogr is written in C and uses flicksoup, a libsoup-based library to communicate with the server through the publicly available flickr REST API.

 Frogr 0.9

Free to download
