Before you use Flickruppa you need to authorise it to use your Flickr account. Click the Authorize button, your web browser will open to Flickr where you can login and follow the prompts to complete the authorisation.

Once Flickr confirms that Flickruppa is authorised, return to iPhoto and click the Continue button in Flickruppa to finish.


Flickruppa uses the title, description and keywords that you've entered in iPhoto or Aperture for each photo, no need to re-enter information on Flickr.


iPhoto: Choose whether to resize your photos before uploading. Original uploads the file with no resizing and no re-compression. Large resizes it to a maximum dimension of 1024 pixels, medium to 640 and small to 240. These sizes match those of the same name on Flickr.

Aperture: Choose a Version Preset. Your existing presets are available, as well as Flickr specific Large, Medium and Small sizes; or choose Master to upload the original file.

Add To Set

Upload into one of your existing sets or create a new set.


Use your default upload privacy as set in your Flickr account, or choose who’ll be able to view your uploaded photos.


Use your default safety level as set in your Flickr account, or choose a safety level for your uploaded photos: Safe, Moderate, Restricted.

Content Type

If you’re uploading screenshots or other types of images you can choose the appropriate content type.

Hide From Public Searches

If you don't want your photo to appear in global search results.

Upload progress will appear in a new window so you can watch it while you continue to work. You can also queue more photos to upload while an upload is already in progress.


With iPhoto 9 and Aperture 3, Apple included native Flickr uploading support. Flickruppa improves on the Flickr uploading experience:

  • Flickruppa uploads in the background so you can keep on working with iPhoto or Aperture. Export more photos and they are added to the upload queue.
  • Flickruppa can upload your original images without recompressing, so you don't lose quality. When iPhoto recompresses images it can also increase the file size. In my testing, a 2MB image from the camera was recompressed to over 4MB… taking longer to upload and using more bandwidth!

Flickruppa licenses are sold by FastSpring. Your license is personal to you. You may use it personally on all of your computers and in both iPhoto and Aperture.
