Manage your Flickr Photo from Ubuntu Desktop - Frogr

Frogr is a small 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 Features:
 * Allow to upload pictures to flickr, specifying details such as title, description, tags, visibility, content type, safety level and whether the to "show up on global search results", both individually or to several pictures at once.
 * Allow uploading pictures located in remote machines, through typically supported protocols (SAMBA, SSH, FTP...).
 * Allow sorting pictures by title and date taken, besides the default order ("as loaded").
 * Allow adding tags to pictures, opposite to just set them through the 'details' dialog.
 * Allow setting specific licenses and geolocation information for pictures right from the desktop.
 * Allow specifying sets and group pools for the pictures to be added to after the upload process.
 * Allow to create sets right from frogr, opposite to just adding pictures to already existing ones.
 * Allow specifying a list of pictures to be loaded from command line.
 * Import tags from picture's metainformation if present when loading.

 * Open pictures from frogr in the default image viewer.
 * Auto-completion in 'tags' entries, based in tags already present for the active account.
 * Registered as image mjj jime types handler, so it's possible to load pictures on it from other applications (e.g. nautilus or eog).
 * Support for drag'n'drop to load pictures right from other apps.
 * Support for handling multiple Flickr accounts.
 * Support for internationalization (i18n) messages.
 * Support for specifying HTTP proxies manually.
 * Support for using the GNOME general proxy settings.
 * Support both for GTK2 and GTK3.
 * Support for the new OAuth-based authentication system. Previous versions of frogr using the old system will be seamlessly updated.

Frogr Installation:
Frogr is packaged in Ubuntu repository since Oneiric, so you should be able to install it in those distros (or newer) by simply doing, as root:
apt-get update
apt-get install frogr
After successful installation, you can open Frogr from Unity 'Dash'

When you first run Frogr, it displays a window explaining you'll have to create an account.

Click Ok, it will run your default web browser. On your default web browser, either create a Flickr account or log in to an existing account.

Then, authorize Frogr to access to this account. You may now go back to Frogrwindow, enter the verification code and use the application to upload any picture!
