Sep 3, 12:03 PM: FlickrBackup v1.0 Released!
FlickrBackup v1.0 has just been released! This version fixes the issue of FlickrBackup not working any more due to the change by the Flickr Team. I worked with the author of flickj for quite some time trying to find out what broke flickrj and we finally fixed it. While that was the main reason for this release, you are all getting some new features along with it.
A lot of people have asked me to make FlickrBackup download photos with a better name than the random numbers that flickr assigns them. Well, now they will download with their title as their name (if possible). Some names will not be allowed as filenames, so please try not to use special characters in your photo titles. FlickrBackup should notice an illegal character if one exists and not use the title if that happens. If you notice it doesn’t, please let me know.
Another very requested feature is that Sets be downloaded into folders. We’ll you got that one too! The Set will download into a folder with the set title as the name (again following the no special characters rule).
Both of these features are configurable through a new options menu. You can enable/disable them there if you would like. You will see one other option to replace spaces with a character if you would like as well.
Thank you all for your patience which FlickrBackup was broken. I hope the new features will make it worth the wait!
