[prMac.com] Vienna, Austria - Eternal Storms Software today announced the immediate availability of a maintenance update for flickery, advancing it to version 1.7. 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 1.7 lets users customize the look and feel of the application, adds more options for uploading like autoresizing of photos and loads more than 30 items at once. All-in-all, flickery 1.7 provides more than 55 new features, improvements and bug fixes.
flickery makes it very easy for flickr users to manage their account. Uploading photos and videos is a matter of a few clicks and the application provides the user with basic editing functionality like cropping, resizing, rotating and effects. flickery easily lets you stay in touch with your family, friends and other contacts by the pictures they post. Browse everyone's photostream, their favorites or their photosets. If you're looking for a particular photo or video, flickery helps users even with that (and a flickr account is not even required)! Search for just the items you want by filtering by licenses, videos or photos, date taken or uploaded, tags, title and description.
New features in version 1.7 include:
* Preferences for uploading, downloading and browsing
* Photos can be set as desktop pictures
* Items' metadata can now be edited in windowed mode
* Increased the number of items loaded to 100
* Drag and Drop to Finder now downloads items
Furthermore, this version of flickery includes over 50 smaller improvements and bugfixes throughout the application. For a more detailed list of changes, please refer to the link to the release notes.
"flickery, after about half a year on the market, already has become a much-used client for the flickr platform" said Matthias Gansrigler of Eternal Storms Software. "For version 1.7 we focused on customizability - so users can view photos the way they want - and stability. Uploading has become a lot easier with features like autoresizing or default tags. We're very proud of what flickery has already become in this short amount of time and want everyone who owns a Mac and uses flickr to give flickery a try. For users who have already exceeded their trial time, we have added five more days to try it out some more."
* Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard, Universal Binary
* For flickery to run, an internet connection is mandatory
* A flickr account is not necessary but recommended
