Post & Upload - Flidget (The Flickr Widget)

Description: This Widget lets you upload photos to your Flickr account. You can specify tags that go with it and if it's private or public photo. Currently you can upload only one photo at a time due to Dashboard restrictions but we hope that this will change soon...

There is more to come in future releases.

This widget was created by Rob Mientjes (design) and Anatoly Papirovsky (Javascripting, HTML, CSS).

If you have any comments please share... (especially suggestions for future versions).

Wow! I haven't tried it yet but looks great.

Found a bug: Images with special characters in their names aren't being uploaded. The process is stuck at 'Upload'.

Another request: Make the tag field larger or the font smaller. After a tag or two, the field is already full.

Otherwise it's quite cool, works as advertised.

I can't get this to work no matter what I do. Either it flat out fails or just sits there "uploading" forever.

Is this widget not compatible with yahoo account logins?

This widget doesn't seem to authenticate using <a href="">Flickr's authentication API</a> -- it just sends your login info to flickr every time you send in a photo. This seems like a bad idea (and it's probably also why people with yahoo logins are having difficulty)
