[prMac.com] Los Angeles, California - 24x7digital has announced PhotoCopy 1.1, their iPhoto to Flickr mirroring utility for Mac OS X Leopard. Designed specifically to help protect media assets, PhotoCopy combines iPhoto's ease of use with the great sharing features of Flickr, the premier online photo management and sharing resource.
Select which iPhoto albums and events to share, and let PhotoCopy do the rest. It uploads all of the photos in the selected album(s) and event(s) to Flickr and arranges them in matching sets. PhotoCopy also copies important image information from iPhoto, such as title, date, time, rating, keywords and description.
PhotoCopy's main feature is its ability to mirror selected iPhoto albums and events to Flickr sets. It compares the current iPhoto library with the users Flickr account and figures out what changes to make and ensures they both match. Whatever is done to an album or event in iPhoto, whether adding, deleting, reordering, or editing images, PhotoCopy will dutifully make the same changes to the matching Flickr set automatically.
PhotoCopy helps protect the user's most precious media assets from fire, theft, and any other local disasters by creating offsite backups of iPhoto media. It will automatically backup all assets and remembers which photos it has uploaded so the user doesn't have to. Only those changes in iPhoto are mirrored in Flickr, and only for the albums the user has specified.
Feature highlights include:
* Copy Photos from iPhoto to Flickr
* Update Flickr Automatically
* Create Offsite Backups
PhotoCopy is much more than a simple iPhoto to Flickr uploader. With its ability to mirror files, users don't have to login and maintain their Flickr account manually, which saves time by allowing them to manage photos in one place: iPhoto. Coupled with Flickr's excellent resource to share photos with family and friends, PhotoCopy is the perfect companion to Apple's iLife Suite, and uniquely serves the dual role for offsite backups.

* iPhoto event support
