Flickr Studio for iPad is available for free today only (5/21/13) – to celebrate ‘the new Flickr’. That’s down from its standard price of $4.99. Yahoo announced the new Flickr yesterday, including an upgrade on all accounts to 1TB (!) of free storage.
The Flickr Studio app is designed specifically for the iPad and offers a good set of features to work with and manage your own photostream and explore those from your contacts and the Flickr community as a whole. Here are some of the notable features:
All your Flickr photos and videos, one smart app. With Flickr studio you can instantly browse your stream, sets, collections, groups, tags or find any photo with the powerful search!
AND EVERYONE ELSE’S TOO!
But Flickr Studio is not just YOUR full photo collection. Use it to view photos from your contacts, or any Flickr user for that matter – Even the Flickr community in general. Billions of photos, that’s a lot to explore!
TRAVEL THE WORLD… IN PHOTOS
The world is a big place and with Flickr Studio you can visit every square mile of it. Move around on the world map, pinch, zoom, and instantly find photos for that area, from the millions of geo-tagged photos on Flickr.
DOWNLOAD AND SHARE!
Download photos to your iPad’s photo library, add to your Flickr favorites, place a comment, examine EXIF data. Share photos via e-mail, Twitter, Facebook and any other sharing service.
Flickr Studio includes a full-featured photo uploader. Queue photos for upload, straight from your iPad! Edit titles, tags and sets before uploading. Smart resizing let’s you choose at what resolution to upload photos, saving you time and bandwidth.
Enter batch editor. Select a few or hundreds of photos via the powerful selection tools, then edit properties to all of them at once! Change tags, add to sets, post to groups, or delete photos.
Flickr Studio includes full blown image editing: Get creative with effects and filters, cropping, levels, colors, sharpness and more!
The app’s UI is a little odd in places, but it does a great job of displaying your own and others’ photostreams. The app’s usefulness is increased by the built-in editing features – which are easy to work with.
