Welcome to the Kflickr Homepage
Kflickr is an easy to use photo uploader for flickr∞
written for KDE.
5,000 Authenticated Users
On the 17th of June 2007 KFlickr achieved 5,000 authenticated users!!
This is a major milestone and more then could of been expected given that the application was originally written to satisfy the needs of a single user (my wife). According to data kept by flickr.com there are roughly 15,000 queries made by people running KFlickr each and every day (a query being a transaction with KFlickr like retrieving a users tags or uploading a new photograph). All and all this indicates that KFlickr is doing what was set out for it to do, get pictures from you to flickr.com in a fast and easy to use way. Thanks to all that are using KFlickr, I love to write software but more then that I love to see software I have written being used. On to 10,000!!
