[prMac.com] Braunschweig, Germany - locr has released "locr Uploader 1.0", a free iPhoto plug-in which provides a comfortable way to upload photos directly from iPhoto to locr. The announcement of the iPhoto plug-in completes the second step of locr's strategic commitment to offer geophoto community and printing services to the Apple market.
For those Mac users that use iPhoto and want to explore their travel photos in a different and exciting way, the locr plug-in is certainly the best choice. locr uploader 1.0 provides a convenient way to link iPhoto with the premier geotagging photo community locr. All services and features of locr could be combined with iPhoto from now on.
The plug-in simplifies uploading of photos or complete albums in a very straight forward way. All iPhoto descriptions, titles and keywords could be exported. Previously geotagged photos as well as manually added geotags within iPhoto 09 will be identified and transferred to locr. Different sets could be added right from the export window, e.g. the privacy level or the image size. After the successful upload of photos the plugin writes the URL of the image to the iPhoto descriptions for easy access to the locr website. Missing geotags could also easily be attached within locr.
The free plug-in was developed by Norbert M. Doerner, the author of the popular digital asset manager CDFinder, and can be downloaded from the locr website.
"This plug-in combines all elaborate features of iPhoto with the possibilities of geophoto sharing with locr", constitutes Rolf Richter, CEO of locr. "This is another great success of our strategy to establish locr as the leading community for Geophotos and travel photo books in the Macintosh environment." "Working with the iPhoto plug-in opens new horizons in the offline photo organization", said Norbert M. Doerner, author of CDFinder. "Mac users can discover the exciting world of Web 2.0 with just a few clicks."
