Ask and yee shall receive: FlickrBooth


Nearly a year ago, I asked for someone to hack Photo Booth so that I could upload photos directly to Flickr. This would be useful at BarCamps, parties and, well, anywhere else that you wanted to speed up the capture-to-Flickr process.

Turns out that Tristan O’Tierney, a self-proclaimed Mac Geek, has finally built the solution, which he calls FlickrBooth.

I tried it out and not only does it work as described, but it’s mind-numbingly easy to install and start using.

  1. Hey Chris,

    Are you the guy at BarCamp SF who was asking Karl and I to do this plugin? That’s where I got the idea. Been in the back of my head for awhile and I finally got time to do the plugin during one of Yahoo!’s internal Hack day events (24 hour coding spree to work on whatever you want).
