Flickr recently released some handy tools like  Photo Session  and an  Android app  for their photo service, but they're geared toward the Web and smartphone users. If you love taking photos that require uploading to your computer, chances are you don't want to spend hours uploading them individually to your Flickr account for sharing.

On your first run, you'll be asked to allow permission for the app to access your Flickr account. Simply click on Authorize and follow the prompt in your browser to grant the app access.
