I managed to upload all my photos I care about to flickr.Â Flickr isÂ a great match for IPhoto users provided they spring for FlickrExport. It makes uploading easy and reliable. All the keywords and descriptions from IPhoto show up in Flickr after an upload.
I thought I would go and let Smugmug know I would like to not renew my subscription.Â Unfortunately, I would have to cancel service, which immediately deletes all my photos and albums despite having paid for service until the end of Sept.

I have removed my Reddit subscription from Google Reader.Â There is just way to much interesting, useless stuff to read.
I am also going to do my best not to visit reddit.com.

I am slowly migrating from my SmugmugÂ service to my Flickr service.Â The main reasons are all the Mac uploader versions for smugmug, including third party ones, are difficult to use and error prone and consume way to much of my time.Â I also find the features of smugmug confusing – like the “doc-like” menu that rolls over photos.
It so far has been very easy to upload photo albums from IPhoto to Flickr withÂ FlickrExport. It makes my life a lot easer (as opposed to PictureSync or SmugMug uploader).
I’ll give it some time and see what warts I find with Flickr before completely giving up on SmugMug.

I have been playing with geotagging in IPhoto.Â I was able to jam some geographical metadata (geographic metadata and place names)Â into some images with HoudaGeo (which can turn gps coordinates into place names).Â Uploading to Flickr went fine – the flickr uploader plugin recognized the geographic metadata as well asIPhoto keywords.
Where things went awry is the editing of images.Â IPhoto trashes the GPS and IPTCÂ properties in the edited photos. I think that is pretty crappy behavior – trashing all the metadata you don’t know about.Â It is not that easy to put back in either.Â Does anyone have a script to selectively copy metadata from one photo to another in IPhoto?
