Exporting from iPhoto to Flickr!

I had seen many commercial solutions that added Flickr export to iPhoto in the past, but this one is the first free one I found. It is only compatible with iPhoto '08. It is similar to the Facebook iPhoto Exporter. Once it is installed, you simply have to select the photos in your library and go to File, Export. The installer adds a new tab called FFXporter. The login is done in a web browser. You can check it out and download it here from MacUpdate.

Hey Kristen,

I'm the developer of FFXporter. You can remove the plugin by deleting /Library/Application Support/Plugins/FFXporter.iPhotoExporter. It would be helpful if you could describe what happens when you try to export in iPhoto so that I can try to fix it.

When I try to use it it crashes iPhoto instantly. Guess it needs more work. I really appreciate your efforts though. I hope you find out what the bugs are.

I'm running a Dual 2.3 PPC G5, and iPhoto 8 if that's any help.

hey i have a question
idk if you ever give tips about mac + ipod stuff,
but i got this new video ipod
and can i somehow export the album artwork pictures from itunes to iphoto, so that i can sync them with my ipod, and view the album artwork at the best resolution my ipod will let me?
because otherwise cover flow is the highest resolution at which i can view my album artwork.

moo -

once i installed the plugin - the export window simply wouldn't appear anymore. i could export slideshows and i could import, but i could not select photos and then hit file > export. it just wouldn't work.

i hope you work the kinks out, because i got really excited about this plugin.

I spent a few hours looking into the issue and there appears to be a problem with Tiger (10.4) that prevents the plugin from loading properly. I'm not sure what it is, and I don't have time to fix it. Sorry Tiger users.

While I was looking into it, I fixed a couple bugs that are relevant to Leopard (10.5) users too, so if the plugin was causing iPhoto in Leopard to crash check out the new version.

Aloha Dustin, the new version seems to work great. Mahalo for such a useful piece of software, and your time developing it. When my unemployment check arrives I'll be making a donation for ya.
