Postr - a flickr uploading tool for your gnome desktop

Postr is a simple flickr photo uploader tool for the gnome desktop. If you are a flickr addict this is going to a very useful tool for you. It is specially designed for the gnome desktop. It was originally developed by Ross Burton and now maintained by Germán Póo-Caamaño who is also using this project for mentoring and encouraging new contributors for GNOME.

Let's have a look at the features of postr now:

  • Simple user interface.
  • Set the common attributes for your photos: title, description, tags, sets, groups, privacy, licence, etc.
  • Nautilus integration: Either run postr when you are browsing your photos or just would to drag from Nautilus to drop them in Postr.
  • Session management: If you ran out of time, you may save your session and continue working on it later. 

Installation:

In ubuntu, you can install it from the software center or you can install it by using the following command:

  • sudo apt-get install postr

Alternatively, you can install it from the source code. You can download the source code from here. Then you can extract it and install it using the below steps:
