[prMac.com] Vienna, Austria - Eternal Storms Software today announced the immediate availability of flickery 1.1. 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. flickery 1.1 features sharing of photos through iChat Theater and Twitter, interface- and speed-improvements and lots of bug fixes.
With flickery, you can easily upload photos to your flickr photostream (you can even take pictures right inside the application with your built-in iSight or screenshots of your desktop), organize photos in photosets and groups, browse your Favorites and add to them, check out the gorgeous photos available in "Explore", take a look at your contacts' photos, their photosets and favorites. flickery even features basic photo editing capabilities like resizing, cropping, rotating or running filters on them - so you won't have to switch to another application for that. If you're looking for a particular shot you saw on flickr, flickery lets you search the entire flickr database for pictures.
"Now, with iChat Theater support, the integration of flickery with Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard is even tighter than before", said Matthias Gansrigler of Eternal Storms Software. "It is a great way of sharing photos with friends and loved ones all over the world."
Another way of sharing photos in flickery 1.1 is through twitter. It even shortens the photos' URLs so you have the maximum amount of space available for your comments right in the tweet. But just as important are the more subtle improvements. The source list to the left is now resizable so longer titles of photosets or Groups can be read in full length. All-in-all, flickery 1.1 includes over 30 bug fixes and improvements. A full list of changes is available at the Eternal Storms Software website.
* Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard
