[prMac.com] Vienna, Austria - Eternal Storms Software is very proud to announce the immediate availability of flickery 1.0. flickery is a unique desktop flickr client for Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard which combines the great photos and community of flickr with the elegance and ease of use of Mac OS X.
With flickery, you can easily upload photos to your flickr photo stream (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 don't even need to switch to another application to do that. If you're looking for a particular shot you saw on flickr, flickery lets you search the entire flickr database for pictures.
For viewing photos, there are three modes available. The first one is the thumbnail view, where you can quickly browse through the photos and get a glimpse of them. The second mode, reachable by the push of the space bar or a double click on a photo, is the "windowed mode". In this mode, you can view photos in larger detail. Lastly, there's the full screen mode. In full screen mode, flickery loads the largest available resolution of the photo while fading out everything else so you can really focus on the photo.
flickery even lets you download images to your computer, if the owner of the photo allows it.
While solely looking at photos is great, flickr is a community after all. So flickery gives you the possibility to comment on photos to leave a little message of appreciation.
