I am probably not the first, nor the last person to have to deal with uploading a large number of photos. Watching the computer attempt to futilely put every single image in memory before uploading them reassures me that Terminator 2 is just a movie and not a documentary of the future.
However, with my mother on the phone, angrily demanding my 8 gigs of wedding pictures, I realized that twiddling my thumbs wasn’t going to help much.
Since I sort my photos by directory, it seemed that taking advantage of that order would be the most effective way to go about uploading my pictures. Thus Flickr CLI was born.
(Yeah, I know there is another Flickr CLI on Lifehacker, but it hasn’t been updated in years and doesn’t work with Flickr’s new absurd login methodology).
