photography, flickr and osx

posted on Mac Beginners

So, i recently discovered flickr and started my hobbiest photography going around places for walks wth my camera taking shots - nothing specific in the way i go about my photograhs, anyway for thos of you that are also into photography on your mac a few things to help out with your photos and flickr.

First off, there is PhotoInfoEditor which enables you to edit the meta data of your photos, adding location details as in City, Area, Country, Lattitude, Longitude, Altitude with the assistance of google map and you can add descriptions and comments to each file also.

Now for those of you that are into creating panoramas and looking for good solid software to create and stitch together your panoramas - look no further than Hugin - Panorama Tools GUI, and yes it’s free! If you happen to download and use would someone be so kind as to teach me how to use it

I have also discovered some neat apps that work with your fickr account tickr for flickr and Sniper. Tickr - as the name suggests - is a ticker-tape effect of scrolling phtos across or down your desktop, you search using keyword box and the results are scrolled through of which if you move the curor over a photo the stream stops and shows information about that photo. Sniper on the other hand is basically a replacement for the flickr interface in the style of an iPhoto like image viewer application and has some nifty features to sort, view and upload photos as well as access your account details all within the application window.

One of my personal favourite freeware applications for things photographs and flickr is JetPhoto Studio which lets you creat backup web album of your photos with descriptions and notes, edit exif meta-data, works with google earth for GPS tracking of your photos and also the ability to output photos to a flash gallery along with a few other features bundled in.
