Question The best ways to manage your flickr account through a GUI?


I have tried these applications but it didnt do exactly what I want
1: DFO (desktop flickr organiser) - I think this application is the best of them all, you can add new sets tags descriptions and more, but the problem with this application that it didnt upload pic for me at all , I have put the pix that I want to upload and it says syncing the pix and loading forever, when I open the gnome system monitor the netspeed of the sending is = 0 (no upload speed) I dunno where is the problem is there a configuration that I have to make before uploading ?

2: Flickrfs: I think this is the second best choice to manage your flickr account but I have stuck in one of the install steps from this page http://manishrjain.googlepages.com/flickrfs#ubuntu
when I run this command (sudo modprobe fuse) I got this message (Module fuse not found) what to do to fix this problem or is there any more easier install instructions than this ? I tried google but I didnt find any

3: Kflickr: Not so professional its only used to upload pic u cant add new sets and manage already exist pix and its a kde application that it dont integrate well with gnome desktop

4: Flickr Uploader 0.12.3: The problems as kflickr but its a gnome application instead.

I have tried to use picasa web album instead of flickr for this issues because there is no good applications to manage pix for flickr like picasa application on linux

any suggestions will be great thanks for trying to help me

I use f-spot photo manager and it's awesome. I've spent HOURS reviewing old photographs and applying tags after years of trying to organize things into folders. It is such a piece of cake to find pictures now...

f-spot has plugins to export your images to flikr and picasa - or facebook, folders, archives, and many others.

F-spot is cool but what I dont like from it that it dont browse the gallery by folders , It have view by folder but you cant know the name of the folder your viewing, I love the way that picasa view your gallery I think that picasa is the best in this battle field but I cant find a plugin that export to flickr

Folders are crap. I know it's what you're use to, but trust me on this - I've spent many many hours trying to keep photos organized in crazy folder schemes to try and manage them for easy look up.

Play around with the tagging system. It is amazing. Once you've tagged all your photos, it's a breeze to find things by dragging those same tag keywords to the filter bar and begin to isolate images to the one you're looking for. For instance, you drag the 'family' tag to the filter bar, and you're looking at all your family members in chronological order. Add the 'House in Lancaster' tag with the family tag, and now you're looking at all the images of your family that were taking at your 'house in lancaster' add as many (logical NOTs work too) tags to your filter as you need to find what you're looking for.

Once you find what you're looking for, it's another piece of cake to export the photo to a different filesystem or service or open the image up in your favorite viewer.

Then mark all your favorites and let f-spot be your screen saver. trick!
