I will admit, I like Flickr a lot. I like the convenience, the tagging and the social nature of the comments. My enthusiasm for Flickr has rubbed off on a number of you, too.
But one of the things that has always been frustrating was the inability to upload large numbers of photos in a batch. That changed a few months ago when Flickr introduced their new Flash-based upload page, but I still prefer Flickr Uploadr. This handy desktop application let’s you drag-and-drop as many photos as you like and send them all en masse. For anyone sharing large number of files, the Uploadr is invaluable.
The current version of the Flickr Uploadr 2.5 is great, but it’s not without limitations. It let’s you edit titles and descriptions, but only after uploading, which isn’t really the best situation.
Fortunately, the new Flickr Uploadr 3.0 beta fixes those limitations. Now you can upload in batches, and still edit titles, descriptions and most of the other editable fields associated with a photo — all before you upload.
The new Flickr Uploadr is available for both Windows and OSX. I downloaded the Windows version on my XP machine, and gave it a try. In my initial tests, everything worked flawlessly. It is beta software, so it’s likely to have some bugs still, but if you’re a Flickr fan, give it a try!

One other quick note for Flickr fans: be sure to check out BigHugeLabs Flickr DNA webapp. It’s fun!
