[prMac.com] Vienna, Austria - Eternal Storms Software today is pleased to announce the immediate availability of a substantial update for flickery, advancing it to version 1.8. flickery is a unique desktop flickr client for Mac OS X 10.5 which combines the flickr photo-community with the ease-of-use and elegance of Mac OS X.
With flickery, the user can easily upload photos and videos to your flickr photostream (featuring photo editing capabilities like resizing, flipping, cropping, rotating and applying filters as well as video-trimming options), organize items in photosets and groups, browse your favorites and add to them, check out gorgeous photos available in "Explore" and take a look at your contacts' photos, photosets or favorites. Search the entire flickr database for a particular shot. Browse all the Groups you have joined. flickery lets you do it all.
flickery 1.8 features a new and improved info panel, allowing users to comment on items more quickly and - most importantly - while they're viewing an item, view metadata information of items, and edit their own items at any time - even when in fullscreen mode.
Maps, however, is the big one in this software update. flickery now allows the user to search for items based on location with a click on a map, or by just entering the name of a landmark. When browsing photos with GPS metadata, more items in that location can be shown, as well as their location on the Map for easy orientation.
New features in version 1.8 include:
* Google Maps for searching and showing location of items
* New and improved info panel with instant info
* EXIF information added
* "Nearby" search item to look for items nearby (Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard only)
All in all, this version of flickery includes about 30 new features, improvements and bugfixes throughout the application. For a more detailed list of changes, please refer to the release notes. For the user's convenience, there are updated screencasts available to help learn flickery's (new) functionality.
"With flickery 1.8, we wanted to give our users something really useful and fun", said Matthias Gansrigler of Eternal Storms Software. "We ourselves can't stop browsing flickr with flickery just by clicking on landmarks on the Map. It is an amazing new way to look for a particular shot."
* Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard, Universal Binary
* For flickery to run, an internet connection is mandatory
* A flickr account is not necessary, but it is highly recommended
