[prMac.com] Vienna, Austria - Eternal Storms Software today announced the immediate availability of a maintenance update for flickery, advancing it to version 1.1.1. 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 1.1.1 features sharing of photos on websites and blogs by providing the HTML source, interface- and speed-improvements and more than thirty bug fixes.
With flickery, you can easily upload photos to your flickr photostream (featuring photo editing capabilities like resizing, cropping, rotating or applying filters, so you won't have to switch to another application for preparing your photos for upload as well as the ability to take screenshots of your desktop or snapshots), organize photos in photosets and groups, browse your favorites and add to them, check out the gorgeous photos available in "Explore" and take a look at your contacts' photos, photosets or favorites.

"After less than 4 months on the market, flickery has already become a much-used client for the flickr platform" said Matthias Gansrigler of Eternal Storms Software. "The improved search functionality and being able to view fifty instead of thirty of a users' contacts' recently uploaded photos both have been highly anticipated. We're delighted and thrilled we are able to deliver this today."
"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. So with version 1.1.1, we're adding 7 days to the trial period for everyone who already has exceeded the normal 15-day trial."
