My everyday laptop runs Ubuntu, however for photo editing, I still use and prefer Photoshop. Now since I’ve gone digital, I’ve gone out an bought Adobe Lightroom. I also use Flickr a lot, so I wanted to work flickr uploader into LightRoom. One trick Adobe missed was having a decent plugin system for Lightroom, hopefully they will reconsider this in subsequent releases, however I suspect they will want to run their own little Flickr clone at some stage.
Anyhow, to get flickr integrated into lightroom, simple do the following
- Download and install Flickr Uploader
- Copy the desktop shortcut created and paste it to c:\Documents And Settings\YOUR USERNAME\Application Data\Adobe\Lightroom\Export Actions
- Fireup Lightroom
- Select a photo, then select export
- At the bottom of the export window, in Post Processing, select Flickr Uploader
- Your done
Its making my life a lot easier already. Enjoy.
