Flickr iOS Update Delivers Automatic Camera Roll Uploads

Yahoo on Wednesday rolled out the newest version of its Apple iOS app and with that upgrade comes the ability to auto-upload photos.

The new Auto Upload feature allows pictures to be taken directly from a users camera roll and added to their Flickr account.

To enable the feature upgrade your Flickr app or download the program from the Apple Apps Store. Next, visit the app’s “More” tab and activate the feature.

Once activated your 25 most recent photos will be auto uploaded in full resolution. Taking new pictures will also upload those new photos without any required permissions.

So how does privacy work for Auto uploads? The photos are all set to private and users must then manually choose to share them.

The Auto Upload feature works over cellular or Wi-Fi by default. However, users can choose Wi-Fi only if they want to save their data plan.

Also included with the new Flickr update is Auto Straighten. That new feature can automatically straighten your photos using the in-app editor.

The Flickr iOS app upgrade also includes bug fixes for Google sign-in issues.

The free app is optimized for both iPhone and iPod touch running iOS 6.0 or later.

Yahoo has been on a tear over the last week. The company just announced threaded conversations and themes for Yahoo Mail. The company also rolled out themes for its mail application, such as Yahoo Weather and featured curated photos from Flickr.

When Marissa Mayer took over at Yahoo we knew she would bring Google’s platform focus to the table and that is exactly what she has done.
