Permissions

Flickr has only three kinds of permissions: read, write and read/write. Auto Uploader only requires the write permission. In the authorization process will be informed that Auto Uploader could be edit or replace photos and videos, make comments or add tags, but this will never happen.

Auto Uploader will ONLY publish photos. Never will touch photos that are already published.

Troubleshooting

  • Where are my geotags?

There are two options to upload the photos with geotags: making the camera app put the geotags in the EXIF info of the picture, or leave Auto Uploader take the GPS coordinates before the upload.

In the first option you have to configure the camera app to take the GPS coordinates, configure Auto Uploader to wait some time to upload (to allow the device to fix the coordinates and put the EXIF info in the picture), and configure Flickr to take these info from the EXIF.

In the second option all you have to do is configure the Auto Uploader to take the GPS coordinates. No configuration is necessary at Flickr.
