Flickroom Beta: A Feature-rich Desktop Application from Flickr
Article by George Norman
On 18 Feb 2010
Popular image and video hosting website Flickr offers a desktop application called Flickroom (still in Beta) that gives Flickr users the “rich browsing experience [they] have long deserved.” To put it bluntly, the desktop application lets you go through content available on Flickr.

“Flickroom is an application that brings Flickr to your desktop, allowing you to browse and search photographs of yours, your contacts, and the Flickrverse. Your photos never looked better against a black background! Once you authenticate Flickroom to your account, you can not only manage your own content but you can also leave comments on great photos or make them your favorites,” explained Flickr’s Cris Stoddard.


But that is not all the desktop application can do. With it you can upload photos to your photostream, tag photos, set permissions on the photos you upload, edit title, description and other metadata, tweet about your photographs, post images to your Facebook account, and chat. You’ve read that right. Among the features that Flickroom provides, there’s one that lets you chat with other Flickr users. In real-time of course.

Here is some Flickroom availability info:
  • - The desktop app provides support for the following languages: English, German, French, Italian, Spanish, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Korean, Chinese (Simplified & Traditional) and Japanese.
  • - The app works with the following operating systems: Mac OS X, Windows, and Linux.
  • - You can download the Flickroom desktop app here.

In related news, Flickr celebrated its 6th anniversary earlier this month. On the occasion Flickr, who prides itself on being “almost certainly the best online photo management and sharing application in the world,” acknowledged the fact that they have the users to thank for its success. And that is precisely what the Flickr team did – it thanked the users who uploaded more than 4 billion images (according to statistics from October 2009).
