Windows Live Photo Gallery And Flickr

By Matthew | In News | Posted October 18, 2007 5 comments

Kip noted yesterday about WLPG getting an update from Windows Update and included a Microsoft KB link, but what that link doesn’t contain was what else might have come with that update. You might remember last month we hinted that WLPG might support uploading to Flickr, well, this latest update does just that: you can now upload your pictures to your Flickr account.

It works the same way as if you upload to your Live Space, so you select the photos you want to upload, click on Publish, then choose Services (if it’s the first time doing it) and choose Flickr:

If it’s not your first time doing this, then click on Publish and then Publish on Flickr:

You will then need to authorise WLPG to access your Flickr account which will open a browser window for you to log into Flickr, once you have done that, then you can continue:

Which then gives you the following where you can choose further options for uploading:

Then you’re good to go

And there you have it, your new set of photos on Flickr.

    This was the deal breaker for me! Definately good news

  • Espiox

    Sweet. It’s nice to see Microsoft supporting external services.

    Hopefully more are on the way.

    The same for Facebook would be genius!

    I agree Joker. I don’t use Flickr much, but Facebook support would be fantastic and would get me to actually use Photo Gallery more.

  • ScottIsAFool

    What would actually be nice is an API to add our own services. Then a Facebook one could *easily* be made and added, as well as other services of that ilk.
