New Flickr Web Uploader is a Giant Leap Forward

Flickr has finally gotten around to improving their web based photo uploader.

The previous one was so bad, I would download the client based uploader to friend’s computers in order to upload more than 2-3 photos. You had to click, browse, and select photo after photo one at a time, which was extraordinarily painful. And well behind what can be done on the web today.

The new web based uploadr allows users to select multiple images at once using Ctrl-click:

Before transferring the images, some batch settings can be applied to the images:

They’re then batch uploaded with a well designed status animation showing the progress of each photo:

Once uploaded, additional titles, descriptions, and tags can be added:

It’s great to see this new feature from Flickr. This is among the best web based upload tools I’ve seen, although it still falls short of Facebook’s photo uploader, which I personally consider the best on the web today. Facebook does the best job of showing photo previews and makes selecting individual photos from a folder very simple.
