FlickrEdit is a simple Java-based application that lets you fully manage your Flickr account from your desktop.
With FlickrEdit you can browse your images, Favorites and uploads from your contacts without having to launch the browser, open the URL and start your session each time. The first time you launch FlickrEdit though you need to create a new user - which you can do by simply logging on to your Flickr account and authorizing the app in Flickr settings. After that, you can simply close the browser and start using FlickrEdit.
FlickrEdit lets you browse photos and sets, view photo slideshows, check your contacts' latest uploads, download and upload photos, see the EXIF data about each picture, mark them as favorites and many other tasks. It also works great as a backup tool for Flickr images. Still, there are some features missing, such as a search tool (the one built in the program only searches your photos) and the ability to leave notes.
Being a Java tool, FlickrEdit is not very quick in response and sometimes takes a while to display photos. That said, we found it to be a very handy tool, especially for Flickr hardcore users.
If you spend a lot of time browsing, managing, uploading and viewing photos on Flickr, this tool may come in really handy for you.
