Since you are very active with developing flickr additional software, have you ever thought about helping the kipi-pulgins guys to improve their flickr export plugin?

The advantage of this plugin compared to a stand alone app is that it can be called directly inside the usual picture applications like gwenview, digikam or kimdaba.

And since the plugin is missing several of your improvements I'm sure they would appreciate your help - and it would be just perfect to have the ability to upload whole albums from digikam as a set together with the tags defined in digikam for them :)

Just to clear some things up.

"fix: neither Qt nor KDE can write GIFs, disable transformations"
KFlickr is smart enough not have to stick to the input file format it will make use of any available output format, not a bug

"fix: remove file ending before setting file name as title"
Design decision, not a bug

"fix: common tags while batch editing/don't overwrite by default"
This breaks the batch mode paradigm

I have no problem with the KFlickr fork but don't claim something as fixed when it is not broken in the original product.

Design decision then, because I believe that all the transformations should not change the original file format.


This breaks the batch mode paradigm
This is a design decision, usablity feature as well, because it allows quick adding and removing of tags without having to overwrite them all.

I have no problem with the KFlickr fork but don't claim something as fixed when it is not broken in the original product.
I still don't see it as a fork because I hope we'll have a common version again someday. I think this is not about claiming something, the classification I did was rather random, maybe I should change "fix" to "changed" at some points to make clear that this is not always a bug in the original version.
